Answer: 
I called their customer care and they confirmed they do drop it off to ground level (IE. at your curb). It is your responsibility to take it from there.

Answer: 
Approx 3' by 5' . It would have fit in my pickup box but chose to put in trailer so it would be easier to maneuver by myself. It is pretty heavy.. The delivery guys helped slide it off truck right into the trailer.

Answer: 
About as long as the beam (6ft), maybe 3ish ft wide, and 2ft tall? It's been a couple years so I don't remember exactly. I think we had to leave the tailgate down but we're able to walk in the truck bed on either side. Packed well and super heavy, need to load with forklift and unload in pieces.

28-Ton Gas Log Splitter is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

The splitter has the power to split knotty wood as well as black gum. the speed isn't 10.5 seconds. it closer to 12 sec. I purchased this model because of the pump output and engine displacement. there is a minor leak at the fitting connected to the cylinder. that's why i gave it 3 stars. maybe a little harsh but I think of down time to fix it myself or spend the time to take it in for warranty work

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Log Splitter 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. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

I found the best price was by ordering online at Home Depot--they would assemble it at no extra charge and I could tow it home (Delivery to home probably would have meant paying extra $50 for lift gate to have it left at side of road; very difficult for me to get 615 pound crated package up my driveway). After making the decision to purchase, I waited until the next morning to place the order--OOPS!--Now the price on the Web page was $45 higher! It arrived at Home Depot about a day sooner than predicted, and after waiting a few more days for the assembly crew to come by, it was ready. I towed it home and examined it. Two nuts on the log catcher were visibly only hand-tightened (no problem because I planned to check tightness of all nuts and bolts). One hub cap was missing (I didn't notice it missing at the store; it likely fell off on the way home) and that wheel was a little loose. After filling up with oil, hydraulic fluid and gas, I was pleased that it started on the first tug. After splitting a small load of wood, I noticed a leak at the hose-to-pump connection. The other end of the hoses, with visible thread sealant, did not leak. The splitter handles hickory, oak, and maple with ease. The included stripper plates and log catcher facilitate wedge return and multiple splits. The cranked jack at the front helps keep the splitter level, although the handle needs a bungee to keep it from hanging down when towing. I've had it less than two weeks and have only split about 1/3 cord of wood, but it appears like it will be quite satisfactory.

I've had mine for less than 6 months and it has been in the shop for most of that. It leaked out of the detent valve after an hour of use. Brought it in for warranty repair, and when I got it back it still leaked from the detent and now leaks from another hydraulic connection. When it worked it worked as expected. On a positive note, their warranty people are super helpful and responsive. They authorized the shop to reseal all the hydraulic connections both times without any question (main reason I give it a 4). They are now sending a new detent valve to the shop. Fingers crossed this fixes the issues and I have many years of use...

Additional accessories we ordered online from another supplier make the job easier (i.e., 4-way wedge, table that attaches. Home Depot does not offer these accessories.)
