Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Squatch Great deal!!!
First with the one bad thing....the little tape measure on the side was gone in a couple hours!!! Haha....who cares!! Overall great splitter! I was splitting 40 inch rounds of dry oak...with a little struggle but it performs like a boss!!! One of other little issue is the pivot pin is noisey (rattles) when in the vertical position. Easy to quiet down. Compared to the Ariens its way way beefier! Buy it!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Conthar Great splitter
Worth every penny!!! Very heavy duty and starts 1st pull!!! Doesn't come with hydraulic fluid but it wasn't too expensive. (About 70 bux at kragens). Great buy!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ollie excellent product, extremely excellent service
quality and ease of use tops. Due to an accident on my part I damaged the pivot and latch just after I received my splitter. I called the company and gave them the part numbers. In 4 days I received the two heavy steel parts (6.8 lb.) at a price of $14.07 and free shipping from Colorado to South Carolina. I couldn't have bought the steel for that price. I am not used to having that kind of excellent response from companies.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tmann This one nice log splitter
This is very easy to use my five year old pulled the handle for me doing the real heavy logs. By the time you run out of gas if you are doing it by yourself. the log catch is nice aka shelf. Noise is not to bad and it starts up very easy. Made in USA and the designed in Colorado. tow it around with the Side by Side and truly if you are doing a lot of wood (more than 15 cords) get one that splits into fourths but this is one awesome machine easy to stand it up on end Love it would get one over and over again !!!
One thing to note is it is close to being on the heavy side to lift and hitch up but really not bad

Bought this online even though some reviews were poor. Couldn't turn it away for the price, a lot of splitter for the money, watch the you-tube video about it ...you will want one. Comes in a huge crate...over 600lb. about 3 hours to assemble...I took my time and used a lot of locktite , also put some of the commercial grade padding from the shipping box between the I-beam and the towing bar to keep the noise down....it does help. didn't start at first....hey dummy, turn the switch to run!. anyways, it runs fantastic at all speeds and I split 3-4 nites of oak in about 15 min. don't know if I need to break-in the engine but Im using it at 2/3 throttle for now. BTW napa has the aw46 oil. ERIC A.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Splitter 27 T gas log splitter
Assembly is straight forward, although it would be helpful to have 2 strong persons available or a crane of some type to deal with the weight of the tank assembly and beam. Good quality for a reasonable price. Engine starts on the first or second pull in warmer weather, but it can be balky at 25 F or below

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bigbird This is the one!
Love the design of this tool. Just split about five cord of Notty spruce that was freshly cut wet and very green. This machine chewed through nots that were as large as six inches across with no trouble. Love the Kohler engine. If it seems difficult to pull you may have stalled the engine under cylinder load. Once it restarts it is just fine. Check all of your hydraulic line fittings at first start up. One of mine was loose and leaked, but after I tightened it I had no further problems. The wood handling rack is a God send and makes all the difference in the world. I would also recommend replacing all the nuts on the wood handling rack with nylon nuts. I highly recommend this product. Don't hesitate to get the 27 ton ram. You won't regret this decision. It Flys through 48 to 60 inch rounds. Great job Dirty Hand Tools.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Earnest Decent product for decent price
Splitter was well packaged, arrived without damage, although the semi truck couldn't deliver to my home so have an alternate site with a fork lift available. Assembly was straight forward, but you will need a shop crane or helper to maneuver sections. Was shipped without hydraulic oil or motor oil so factor that cost into purchase price.
