Some Assembly Required - so bring your tool kit
As a number of people have commented, the assembly of the Champion 34 Ton Log Splitter was very poorly done. I am not sure if HD does the assembly, Champion, or a 3rd part, but it leaves much to be desired, and a lot for the customer to do. If you purchase one of these, check the following before taking delivery: Are the wheels properly installed, cotter pin on the retaining nut, wheels spin smoothly but do not slide in/out of the axel, are all the bolts properly tightened (take a tool kit with 2 cresent wrenchs capable of 1.5 inch nut) the unit I purchased had a dozen lose fasteners including one wheel that probably would not have made the 30 mile trip home. Once I got home I discovered a few more issues including, the high pressure line would kink when spliter in vertical position, the hydrolic oil resivor was low and I had to add 4 gallons to bring it up to operation level. While this might discourage you from purchasing this product, I need to give credit wher it is due. When I talked with the store manager she arainged for one of the tool rental clerks, Carl, to give me a hand addressing the assembly issues. Carl is a retired automotive worker and he really knows his stuff. He worked with me until all of the issues I identified were addressed and made sure I was happy with the final results. As for the splitter itself I am very happy with it, though I think Champion would do well to make sure their products are assembled correctly.

    This thing chops!
    This log splitter is awesome, it crushes through anything you put through it with ease. I was on the fence between renting one for a few days or buying one and I am glad I chose to buy!

      wedge broke
      I went to home depot after carefully reading many reviews and watching youtube videos about this splitter. Had a few concerns before buying. So i asked the associate to fire it up to verify it worked properly. Was told store policy is they cant put gas in any engine and start it. Not happy. He told me i could return it if it wasnt working properly. So i took it home fired it up and split some logs. Worked great but after 3rd log( hard maple) the wedge chipped a 1.5” piece off the top cutting edge. I contacted champion and after being on hold for an hour they are sending a new one. In the meantime i inspect machine and the hose clamps on return lines are loose and hose slmost came off. One fender is missing a bolt and the filler plug was slso loose. Seems like a good machine but the assemblers at the depot need to pay more attention to assembly. Do yourself a favor and check every bolt and hose before using. And i also got the manual for a 34 ton splitter but i bought a 27 ton. Somehow they got switched probaly by the people doing the assembly.

        Powerful Log Splitter
        This is a great splitter. I have been using it for a year and am not able to find any log that it will not split. It is very heavy for one person to move alone. Negatives are no tongue jack, just a simple post with a holes and a pin, which makes hitching to tractor difficult as the excessive tongue weight. Also it should come with a 4 Way cutter it for sure could use it. It drips hydraulic fluid. I don’t really like the operating valve, it takes quite a lot of force to move it from the resting position of the handle. The detent is very hard to come off of and after a couple of hours of splitting it gets a little tiring and painful to slam your hand against the handle to get it to break loose on every split.

            This thing is a beast!!!!! So far unstoppable!!! Granted I am only splitting Doug fir and tamarack but have had zero problems even the huge twisted end pieces, it goes though with ease!!!! I chose to assemble the unit myself, it was pretty easy. I highly recommend.

              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.

                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.
