Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Littledog7 Simple to use
Tried it , plenty of splitting power ,the wood that it would only put a dent in < I had trouble splitting with a wedge & 10lb hammer & a axe so thats telling how stout some logs are you got to split with the grain. It has plenty power , just got to use common sense on some wood ,some harder than others . On the real tough wood I would get it started with the sledge & wedge finish it off with the earthQuake " make sure to lose"n the Breath screw so you won"t have seal problems" works for me.

PLEASE - IF YOU BUY - GET AN IRON CLAD WARRANTY FROM HOME DEPOT FOR AT LEAST 3 YRS i purchesed this product a about 1.5yrs ago for a friend, it failed on her and she returned it to me for repair. a call to the company for parts availability was made and i was told "we do not supply parts" i then took it to a tractor repair company - they looked it over and also called for parts - they were at least turned over to the company mech dept. the response was -- and i quote " tell him to buy another one" this was said with a laugh. when it worked for her it was slow, it has a tendancy to tip over but it did work

This splitter just stopped working after 2 days and a cord of wood. When I returned it they suggested I not exchange it as several had come back broken.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by frenchy fantastic for homeowner use
very easy assembly....when splitting large logs with big knots feed good end to splitter with knot last to split better. Also as others suggested if needed use 4x4 block of wood between ram and log to forced log to go thru splitter wedge head and cut completely. caution hard wood and woods with big knots may fly off machine with a sudden force as they split.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by beenhad This is good for small logs.
This log splitter is ok for small logs, 5 tons of pressure is not allot of force but just enough to split small 8 inch logs.
It also helps if the log is seasoned, new or wet logs may be harder to split & this device struggles is that case. If you plan on splitting logs any bigger, get a splitter with more ton splitting pressure.

I took this to my Dad for a birthday present and he loved it. It was easy for him to run and cut his logs just like he wanted.
