Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Works ok, but doesn't last. I've been through two if these log splitters. They don't seem to work well on hardwood like ash. The first one had a problem with the start switch that eventually wouldn't turn on the compressor. The second one worked better and we got a years use out of it but when we just pulled it out of storage to cut up logs from a tree that fell a few weeks ago, it no longer worked. The item is heavy and a bit awkward when pulling, quality isn't really there. For the cost, it should last longer than a year. Customer support does seem to be ok though. August 2, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by log splitter I purchased this on line, The breaker on the splitter will not stay operatonal when it is cold, I should have sent it back , so it is part my fault March 5, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It Does the Job I read all the reviews and took to heart many of the negative aspects of this splitter. It arrived with the box intact. I checked the fluid level before using the spltter and it was perfect. I had used a 5-ton electric splitter before so I was comfortable with it. I put it up on a large Coleman cooler so that I didn't have to bend over to use it. I did use a 4X4 block to assist with a few logs that didn't split completly. The two hand operation is definately a safety feature. Cut 20 inch soft wood logs with ease. For the price, $219 on sale, this is a terrific value based on the features and performance.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works well Works really good on dry wood. Has trouble splitting wet hard wood, Have split large rounds of wood 16" with no trouble. Travel of log pusher needs to be longer, sometimes will not split all the way. Wish it would stand upright for storage without having to place block under it. Will weld up bracket to stand it up on its own. Overall it is a very good tool. Just don't forget to open the bleed screw. Happy splitting. October 28, 2014
