        Decent product that needs redesigned
        Arrived with all the hardware. Instructions and manuals could be much better. Will take at least two people a couple hours to assemble. Once assembled I started splitting logs. I bought this product and paid the price I did because it was advertised as a top of the line, industrial grade machine. After using it I have a hard time believing that it has 40 tons of splitting power. Every time I run into a difficult knot the engine dies. The slide rails bent the first time a log slipped sideways. The slide rails need to be replaced with a flat sturdy sheet of metal. After an hour of splitting the belts came off the fly wheel. I couldn’t find any instructions on how to fix this so I had to figure it out myself. Personally I think you need bigger fly wheels to achieve the power you are advertising. Having to restart the engine every time it runs into a difficult piece of wood is a real pain. On the positive side it is very fast and works well for any straight grained wood without knots.

          Very powerful and fast!
          It came in a well packed box. Surprisingly, there was no missing hardware. I put it together in roughly an hour. I put to the test immediately. I'm very pleased with the cycle time and the power. I split oak and ash with no problems. The table is a great feature so you don't have to bend over to pick the wood up every time you split it.

            Very happy
            I bought this splitter six months age on recommendation of a friend. This thing is a log eating beast. I have yet to find a log it won’t split.

              Cheap China junk
              I split 1/3 of a cord of Silver Maple with my new DK2 40 ton kinetic splitter . It was great at first , quick , fun to use . After 30 minutes of use a tooth sheared off of the rack while trying to spit a tough round , unfortunately this machine longer works . This machine is fragile and it killed itself . I will have to take this machine to my local machine shop and have them fix it . My suggestion is to spend more money on a quality American made kinetic splitter . Skip this one

                Terrible customer service
                Worked great for about 10 chords then gear teeth broke and they would not honor warranty. I have replacement parts on order now for 2 weeks and zero updates re fulfillment timing. Unit sits useless in my garage taking up space waiting for parts.

                  Fast
                  I have had my kinetic splitter for approximately 3 years now. I bundle firewood splitting logs into very small pieces approximately 16 inches long. I use a bundle wrapper to wrap the wood. It has split hundreds of bundles. I am 78 years old and at my age time is very important to me. It is very very fast. If I ever have to replace it , it would be with the very same unit. I just don’t understand the negative reviews.

                    Product is AWFUL
                    After getting the initiall ordering issues handled, through Home Depot online, we ordered and receive our log splitter. It took several dangerous hours to put it together and then several more to get it running. Once it was running I, a 57 year old chubby woman experienced the mechanism (engagine handle) that makes this product operational fractured off on my hand. We paid over $3000 for this product with tax and extended warranty. And we were able to split about 30 logs. I am not a happy customer. Completely disappointed in the quality and craftsmanship of this product. Disappointed in the expectations required for the customer to build it. And the time and expense into it. It is scheduled to be picked up and we should receive a full refund. Don’t waste your money, time ans energy. Completely disapoonted.
