CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 1.3 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 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 1.0 out of 5.0 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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do not buy I just bought this splitter axe at 11am I had cut 150 core 5 hours later I am at 100 core the axe finally broke it from the handle .. It's a joke of this axe .. I just order the Fiskar axe I have small one and I know it really works March 28, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Complete junk This is not for anyone who is serious about splitting wood. The head comes off and the fiberglass handle is a joke. Not worth the time or money. Will not buy from this company again. January 11, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do not buy With in 3 months the head started coming loose. I didn't think much into it because i figure it could be wedged in like a wooden handle. Not the case. I finally had the head come off and there is no way to attach the handle back to it. Home depot has a lot of quality products but I should have read the reviews on this one. DO NOT BUY.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by do not buy this log splitter !!! the head comes off the handle- ditto with all of the other reviews November 21, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not a sturdy ax I bought this ax from the store. I used it 3 times for about an hour each time. The head came off and it is already falling apart. Spend some extra money and get a better brand of ax. October 26, 2014
