CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 1.6 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Head fell off Much like the Rockforge 4 lb sledge hammer, the head fell off this after not much light use. It's great that the handle is indestructible, but the connection to the head is not. Since it's fiberglass, it's pretty difficult to permanently fix. Other than that, I also didn't like the axe before it broke because the splitting wedges on either side are at such an angle that the wood goes flying about 6-8 feet either side when you split the wood. It's dangerous if there is anything within 10 feet that you don't want a flying piece of wood to hit; plus it's a pain to go gather up the wood after it's gone flying so far away. My recommendation would be the Fisker 36in splitting axe; nothing but good reviews on that. January 28, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Head fell off After owning the tool for a year - the head slipped off after splitting 2-3 chords of pretty [ knotted / twisted ] wood. It's wonderful composite handle ( once separated from the head ) cannot be re-attached. Much unlike a traditional, reliable, wood handle which can always be finagled to work. The head is now useless but maybe as a wedge. Even before this I noticed that the plastic sheath over the fiberglass core is prone to cracking and failing as it is dynamically mismatched with the core, and thus easily stressed through normal use. tl;dr This is a great Home-Depot-hang-in-your-garage product (if you're a weekend warrior), but don't get it if you want to use it regularly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Head fell off I had the maul for about six weeks and the head came off. I was not using it improperly or even very forcefully. This is an inferior product. February 13, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Head fell off after 2 days Worked great until the head fell completely off. This took about 4 hours of use over 2 days. Thankfully HD has a no-hassle return policy. Buyer beware. December 19, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by Do not buy Head fell off after first use, barely an hour into splitting seasoned oak. HD does not sell the replacement handle. December 27, 2013
