Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mech Very satisfied
I have about 10 hours on the splitter so far, very happy with it. Had a 40" ash tree get taken down and splitter handled everything with no problem. Was easy to assemble, plan on having a helping hand tho. Overall very satisfied and would highly recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Thorn811 Works great, easy assembly
It was delivered right on time. Took about 2 hours to put together. Started right up after fluids were put in. Have used the splitter in both vertical and horizontal to split approximately 2 cords of hard wood so far. I have not had a problem, the splitter is working great and I wood highly recommend this unit. The splitter is heavy so I would recommend to get a trailer dolly to make moving the unit easier.

Log Splitter arrived well crated . Very easy to assemble. And let me say this, I should have purchased this years ago. Split more wood in an hour then I would have done in a day before.

This item from Home Depot doesn't come with fluid or oil but the log catcher and 16" tires comes standard. The taller tires give it more ground clearance The log catcher is handy for holding split halves at working level, saves the back. If you don't have one, get one! Put item together by myself with the help of a tree limb and a come along. Instructions were clear enough for a DIY'er to follow. It has split some 20" black gum and 24" oaks. that were 18 to 22"s long at 3/4 throttle. Could only download picture of after I put it together and splitting a 16". gum before camera died. Read a lot of reviews before deciding on DHT's brand and getting it from Home Depot. Have cut and split wood for over 35 years the hard way, back can no longer hold out.

The dirty hands 28ton log splitter is a solid product. I am very satisfied with it, I'm glad I went with the 28T vs the 27T the 17.5 gpm pump is a BIG time saver. Overall construction is better then others at the similar price point($1450 @ Depot online). The 2 step wedge design works great. The only thing I would change would be larger tires and increased hydraulic fluid capacity (the oil and cylinder get pretty hot)

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jim 28 ton log splitter... Dirty hand.
The splitter went together well from the box. Operates well in vertical and horizontal positions. The only problem found so far is that the stand hits the frame when stowed in travel position and has to be forced into position. It is also to large. A shorter size properly mounted would be ideal.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Frank What a great log splitter
This log splitter is one of the best I have ever seen or used. I checked out at least 20 different log splitters and decided on this one. Its cycle time is great, the 28 ton splitting force is great, it does not hesitate it just drives the wedge through anything you put on it.
One small modification I made. There is a table/tray that holds the split wood. It is built very strong but it is not big enough. I made it about 6 inches wider and about 18 inches longer. When splitting large logs, 1/2 of the first split lays on the table while you are working on the other half. At times the piece you are splitting will push on the piece on the table and push it off. My extention eliminates the problem.Also the longer length covers the motor to eliminate any wood from dropping on the motor.
If I was to need another splitter I would buy one of these without a second thought.
