Does this 27 ton come with the log cradles? The specs don't mention it but some of the reviews said it comes with them.

Asked by: Bb
Mine (27T) came with the cradles standard. It did not come with the work table or the hydro cylinder handle - I bought those separate.

Does it have a 2 stage hydraulic pump to power through tougher logs

Asked by: Larry
Yes, it does have a 2 stage pump. Works very well on everything I've put in it. For pieces with knots or a "Y", it actually cuts through whatever it can't cleanly split. Very powerful machine.

I was a little worried the 27 ton wouldn't have the power for my splitting needs. Far surpassed my expectations, muscles through oak with little effort. Subaru/Fuji motor starts immediately, event in sub zero temps. Only negative is one of the hydraulic connections came loose and leaked, quick easy fix.

A lot of the wood had knots and the splitter went through it like butter. Easy set up, easy to store. Just wish I had bought this sooner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a beautiful log splitter Don't worry about other log splitters this is the one you want. I have been looking around and surfing the web for the best log splitter for the money for more than a year. This splitter does more than I thought possible. I watched all the videos on the web and what I split was twice as big as any video I watched. More than 3 ft. diameter, the grain was the worst twisted V shaped grain anyone could imagine. It does slow down for these large logs but it never stopped. You kind of work your way around the log like slicing a pie until you can pull pieces out. Every detail of this splitter was thought out by very smart engineers and designers. I can't think of one thing I would change. It even comes with the log cradle from what I am told this is standard on the 2013 model. So you don't need to spend the extra 40 bucks on that. Visually it is beautiful I almost hate to put the cover on it because I love to just look at it. Makes me feel sorry for the other folks that bought something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value and performance This unit is superb! I have used older, less efficeint splitters in the past and this is a much better unit. The Subaru engine is quiet, efficient, and starts with 1 pull everytime (Even in 35 degree weather). Love it! I have a pressure washer with the Subaru engine on it as well and it has given me years of trouble-free service. I am anticipating the same from this one. The overall construction of the unit is great and the ease of use is very good. It arrived in a very sturdy crate which is good firewood for your stove seeing as you have to cut it apart to get the unit out. I added about 1.5 gallons of hydraulic oit to top off the resevoir after the initial running of the engine and cycling the cylinder. I pull it with my Honda ATV and it allows me a little more versatility than trying to move it with a fullsize truck. I have split about 2 cords with it already and couldn't be more satisfied. It is made in the USA and I am happy to keep the money here for a quality product. The free shipping was also an added bonus through Home Depot compared to other sites that would tack on another $100 or more. Hope this helps those of you who like to research things to no end like myself :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well worth the price and working like a champ so far - Thumbs Up We have only used the log splitter a couple of times and have not been disappointed. In the past we rented a Iron and Oak log splitter and decided it was time to purchase instead of spending the money and having to work ourselves so hard on a weekend. We checked out the reviews and looked at many log splitters before we decided on the Ariens 27 ton from Home Depot. So far we have split about a cord with no issues. It goes through logs that we have that are 30 to 36 inches with no issue. On one log, we wound up cutting up 59 pieces and are very pleased with our purchase. Will see what it does over the next few months as we have several more cords to split. Thumbs up!! The only down side is that the lever is in the middle and you could thump yourself in the head when it comes to the top and resets if you are bending down but we are aware of the issue so keep our head out of the way. that's the only down side we have found. It was in a nice crate and little to do to put it together. We followed the instructions about the hydrolic fluid and had no issues.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware of Defective Units This unit split logs like crazy, but after 20 minutes, there was a pretty good-sized puddle of motor oil underneath it. The oil was leaking out from under the engine where it was mounted to the frame. No vents or gaskets underneath there! This looked like a cracked crankcase to me. I returned the unit to Home Depot. (I70 mile round trip.) No problem with the exchange. Got the second unit home, went through all the preliminary checks, started the unit, and, and, no hydraulic pressure! Looking around, I found the couplers that connect the motor output to the hydraulic pump input were not engaged (not meshed). So, the motor was spinning happily away but not turning the pump. The motor-side coupler had not been installed properly. The coupler fits over a key that is set in a keyway in the crankshaft. A setscrew in the coupler then then locks the coupler and the key in the keyway. But someone at Ariens turned the setscrew down and missed the key. So the coupler slid back about a ½ inch toward the motor and disengaged itself from the pump coupler. Once I had fixed this problem, the splitter worked as well as the first unit, and no puddle of motor oil. The bottom line, however, is that I received two defective units in a row. This refelects very poorly on Ariens and Home Depot. Someone needs to check these splitters thoroughly, both at Ariens and at Home Depot before they are sold to the public.
