What size is the shipping crate

will the shipping crate need to be hauled in a trailer for future assembly or could it be loaded into a pickup truck box
Asked by: jacksnipe
I didn't measure but it seemed to be approximately 6 ft long x 3 ft wide, by 2 ft high. Fits in the back of a pickup truck.

Can Lift Gate Delivery option be purchased?

Is there an option for Lift Gate Delivery (delivery driver off loads crate to ground level).?
Asked by: woodcutter
Most online vendors recommended the liftgate option (at extra cost) for home deliveries. They also said it is generally curbside delivery. Ordering from the Home Depot website allowed, I believe, the option store or home destination.

Customer Reviews

28-Ton Gas Log Splitter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 60.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from As Advertised Purchased the splitter this spring and have split approx three cord to this point. The splitter runs and operates as advertised; the cycle time is great, the engine starts and runs well and splits everything I put on it (most of my wood is larch/tamarack but I did split some red fir). The log catcher/cradle is a great feature, holding one half of the split wood round while you handle the other half for splitting to the size you want. Another great feature is the no-hands wedge return - simply push the hydraulic lever in the return direction and it "locks" in the return direction allowing the operator to use both hands to handle the wood block, grab another block, etc. - certainly speeds up operation. The entire splitter seems to be a commercial grade unit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great splitter! Great power, fast cycle time, starts great, Kohler engine runs great, run time about 3 hrs per fill, very heavy, compare steel thickness with competition. Trailer jack stand is made for pickup height, no good for small tractors. There is one short hydraulic hose that should be upgraded, easy fix! Split more than 16 cords so far, really beats splitting wedges and hammer routine. Overall it's a well built tool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heavy Duty Workhorse I bought my logsplitter about 4 months ago and used it to split enough wood for the next 2 winters. The only issue I encountered was a cracked nut on a hydraulic line which was repaired under warranty. Most logs split easily although the sweet gum was harder to split because of the twisted grain of the wood. I plan on getting many years use of the splitter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent choice. I bought this wood splitter to split 6 cords of wood and it works flawlessly. After the initial engine break in (a bit touchy, not now) and purging the hydraulic system, the Dirty Hand splitter has not missed a beat. I feel this unit is comparable to splitters costing half again more.

Splits any wood block you can put it and never slows down through the block. While I have rented splitters previously, this is the first one I have owned. A couple very nice features that were not on the other splitters I've used are (1) the splitter head will completely return without the need to hold the hydraulic lever in the reverse direction allowing you to use both hands moving, resetting wood blocks while the head returns; speeds-up the process, (2) the log catcher is a great feature; no holding or picking up half-blocks on the first split, (3) the cycle time is pretty close the 10-seconds advertised. Received the splitter in a crate and assembled the whole unit in about 2-1/2 hours. The splitter's physical construction seems to be more "heavy-duty" than other splitters I have looked at at the local hardware stores. The engine doesn't start on the first-pull but after a couple pulls, it runs well. I have split about two cords quickly and all-in-all, I am very happy with this splitter.

DHT sent me a new ram just outside the warranty period. That one now leaks, too. I've had this splitter for about 3 years and used it only 8 times. Use this information as you will.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm an engineer & this product is well engineered I elected to assemble this product myself. The process and instructions were some of the best I've seen. Someone gave a lot of thought on how to assemble and package this product.
