          Good product
          I have had this about a month, and have split about a cord of pine and some sycamore, oak and various others. This warrants 5 stars. The crate is about 700 pounds. Assembly was straight forward, Took about an hour. It comes with everything you need except gas. I am very pleased with this product and would definitely recommend. The axle is close to where the operator would stand Also, don’t wear shorts because the axle is also the hydraulic fluid reservoir hot.

            Works great, delivery guys were most helpful and polite. Plenty of splitting power and starts on first pull.

            I have had this for about 1 month. When I decided to buy this, I was contemplating if I needed the extra capacity (37 ton vs 27 ton) but for just a couple hundred more, decided to go with the larger version. Definitely the better choice. I have now split about 2 cords and cannot be more pleased. This thing powers through crotch wood and sometimes even cross grain. For normal operation, it does not even bog down. Easy to operate, and generally well laid out. Works well in both horizontal and vertical orientations. Cradle that holds logs is pretty robust. Engine starts easily and seems to purr along. Definitely exceeded expectations. The only minor issue I have had is that during operation, it is a little awkward is where the control valve is located. Not a lot of room between the axle and where you are operating the valve. You get used to it pretty quick. Overall, very pleased.

            This thing is a beast! Had some large logs, split with ease. Well constructed, starts easy, easy to read gas and hydraulic fluid gauge. Love the log catchers. very sturdy and increases efficiency when splitting larger logs. As I read in reviews, the reflectors behind the wheel break when a piece of wood falls. Both of mine broke within 5 hours of use... Not big deal, will replace with sticker. Don't forget to request the manual when you pick it up. I had to go back to the store to pick it up. Comes with a special funnel to add oil. Switched to Amsoil 5-30 small engine oil (full synthetic) after the first 5 hour oil change.

            Exactly as described. Great product. Important that is heavy other similar products dont have as heavy of a base and are thus less stable/safe. Keep it hooked to a vehicle at all times for maximal safety. Photo is less than one tank of gas which was about 2 hours of consistent use.

            Worked flawlessly for 5 months then....
            Developed a leak in the hydraulic supply hose coupling to the ram (#19 on parts list -$43) and one of the tires will not hold air.. other than that, it has worked great. unfortunately no parts support at home depot so I could not just a pick up a new hose and be back in operation the same day.. Champion has a great web site for ordering parts and a new pressure hose was $43 + $5 for shipping.. but I will have to wait for a while to get the new hose..

              One happy guy living in the backwoods.
              I had 7 ton electric that I purchased from the home Depot 2 years ago. It worked great for a starter, but 80% of our heat comes from wood. I do not have the time to split that much wood when you're looking at a 30 second cycle time. Even worse, there was a lot of wood that the 7 ton could not handle. Delivery company was great and was willing to work with me. Watched the couple videos on how to put together and started on the 2nd pull. Split through a huge pile in a 1/5th of the time.

                  Don't let Home Depot Assemble
                  The log splitter is powerful and seems well made. The 45mph tires are disappointing. HD did a TERRIBLE job with the assembly. First of all, they let me take it home without the hydraulic fluid. I had to drive back 40min each way! The UNCARING idiot who assembled it switched hoses. On startup it sprayed hydraulic fluid all over. Big mess! I lost a day troubleshooting and needed to buy an o-ring. The assembly is very simple. There is no excuse for this. I had to fix their mistake.

                    We call her “ The Beast”
                    Directions very easy to read and follow. Yes, the back bolts to the engine can be hard , but a box wrench fits right in there and a ratchet on the bottom, easy. Have nothing bad to say about this machine. Very heavy duty and so far, very dependable. Highly recommend it if you’re looking for something heavy duty.
