Questions & Answers


can you buy this with auto start and pull string back up and can you get with honda motor

Asked by roger May 3, 2021

Unfortunately, this unit cannot be retrofitted with an electric-start engine. We are sorry about that.

Am I supposed to put Teflon tape on the hydraulic tank cap and is it supposed to leak hydraulic fluid from the hydraulic cap hole?

Asked by Tony April 29, 2021

The drain plug is sealed with Teflon® tape. Add 2-3 wraps of new Teflon® tape as needed when replacing the drain plug to prevent oil leak. If there is too much oil in the hydraulic tank, it can start to spew from the vent screw. As oil gets hot, it expands, so it will make its way out. Make sure the hydraulic fluid level is at the halfway mark on sight glass. Thank you.

What brand name motor

Asked by Sully April 25, 2021

This log splitter comes with a Champion-branded engine. Thank you.

For pick up, is this assembled?

Asked by Joe April 16, 2021

Yes it is. You will have to add the fluids once you get to your destination.

Does this model have a 4-way wedge that can be bought separately?

Asked by Tk March 18, 2021

Is it available in the Temple Store today

Asked by HENRY March 15, 2021

Please contact your nearest Home Depot store for availability. We appreciate your interest in our products!

Can you use hydraulic fluid instead of hydraulic oil?

Asked by Jeff March 6, 2021

They are the same thing. Hydraulic fluid is made from oil, it's just a different terminology.

Great splitter
I had about a 60' elm tree cut down and needed to have all the pieces split. After reading and watching so many reviews, I decided on the Champion 27 ton splitter. It was a great choice and has handled the stringy elm logs without any issues.

Great Product
I bought this splitter to ease the annual 3-4 cords of wood splitting chore. I did not realize how fast and efficient this tool would make this chore. Wow, should have gotten one years ago. Fantastic time saver and I am nowhere nerve as worn out as usual.

3 Cords In And Going Strong!
I love this log splitter! I've already split 3 cords of wood for this winter and it's getting through the toughest knots too. My research definitely paid off and I couldn't be happier with the purchase.
by JosephM
This things a beast!
Shopped around, read tons of reviews. Best bang for the buck is this one. Strong, runs great and the built in log shelves are great. Thought about smaller, but for the price, you can't beat this splitter. Been doing poplar and oak so far, around 4 cords, some fresh cut, some down 10 months. It handles it all!

Great product
This product is very good. Splits logs fast and very powerful. Splits bigger size logs with no problem
by Deadstockxs
Purchased the 27 ton a few weeks ago. Assembly was fairly easy and I did it by myself. Split a lot of oak wood and pecan and it never stopped this splitter. Im extremely impressed. I also custom fabbed a tire for the front and I can move it around the yard very easy. I can push it up my small trailer with no problem.
by Tony
This thing is a beast!
Bought at HD, great splitter. Splits seasoned, knotty oak like it's nothing! I compared a lot of other splitters before buying and I think I definitely got my money's worth.

Awesome powerful log splitter
Bought this the other day new. Brought it home and started splitting right away. Found 2 cherry logs one was 46” diameter other was 34”. Got em home cut them into rounds. This log splitter has absolutely no problem busting them up. Didn’t even bat an eye. There is a plastic cap over a nut that’s threaded. Plastic cap keeps coming off because hydraulic hose keeps pushing on it. Without the cap the hydraulic hose will wear out on the nut over time so have to figure out something for that. Only reason for 4 and not 5 star review. Awesome great power.

Great splitter, with only minor takeoffs
Had a massive tree come down during the August 2020 hurricane storms, and finally got around to splitting it up. Wasn't sure if a 27T would be enough as some of the rounds were over 3'. Great news was, the Champion split them all up with no issues. Ordered it online, and had expected a crated model, but instead received a fully assembled unit, and it looked like a floor model, complete with in store display tags attached. Checked all the connections, looked correct, added oil, and hydro fluid, and started splitting. Changed the oil after the 5 hour break in period per the instructions, and have had little to no issues. After sustained large round splitting the cylinder does get a little hot, and had some minor splashback from the hydro relief valve, but that just meant it was "break time". Have towed it with both a pickup truck, and a John Deere tractor without issue. Minor take-offs for design points, like the two pins (one for horizontal / vertical, and the front resting post) use pins with cotter pins, instead of a fixed quick release which can be slightly a pain when working with the unit, but they work flawlessly. Sometimes the unit doesn't like hot starts, but always starts, and cold starts are a one pull affair. With 8 chords already done, and more to go, the Champion 27T splitter has worked out really well. Recommended.
