Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is a very heavy duty splitter. I've only used it one day so far, but I am very impressed. I took down several doug fir wolf trees, very full of big knots. This thing rips right through the knots, even using the four way splitter. Assembly is easy, but when they say the beam is "somewhat heavy", they mean it. That was the only part of the job I needed help on though. The description says the engine comes with oil, it does not. Also says hydraulic fluid is needed. It comes with 15 liters of oil, but it was not enough. It took about another gallon after purging the air from the system. Overall, I am satisfied with this unit, and getting a 30 ton unit for the price of a 20 makes me a very happy camper! September 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great splitter Bought this splitter, got it in a week. assembly wasn't that hard, all parts were there, nothing broken. Came with hydraulic oil, after assembly got it fired up and got 2 cord of douglas fir and some oak split that were 2ft. across. Didn't stall a bit, I did take the 4-way off to split the larger pieces. Wish I had one these when I was a kid. Good product for the money... October 21, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DO NOT BUY- Missing parts and stops working first day Missing vented dip stick for hydraulic level on delivery. After getting assembled up and running. I moved into position to split first log. Went to pull the starter cord and it just spins. Nada. This hunk of junk will be getting returned on Monday. SO frustrating. I knew the price and size of this thing was too good to be true. Serves me right for being a cheap skate. September 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best purchase This has been the best purchase!! My son just loves this and splits logs with ease. The one thing was that the 4 way splitter did not work for us but very easy to take off. This is very heavy just make sure you have some strong guys to get it out of the crate when you put it together. November 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Splitter This splitter does its job just dandy. I am very pleased with my purchase. I split a cord of wood in no time at all, split through some really green knotty wood like butter. The hydraulic line from the reservoir is in a bad location, but a long zip tie fixed that so it wouldnt get caught on something while towing. October 26, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Some assembly required no where did it say that this splitter came in a crate and required detailed assembly and three very strong persons. the product is functioning very well. I had to pay for assembly and lifting October 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Log Splitter I was very happy with my log splitter. It started up the first time and I was able to split large oak trees without any problems. I would recommend this product. October 21, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Good product, poor assembly Product seems to be working well, but the Home Depot didn't assemble it properly causing a hydraulic line to come disconnected and spray oil over me as I used it. October 10, 2014
