Great log splitter
Very heavy and cumbersome to change positions or move around, other than that great service very powerful and easy to use. Had it a week and split a cord of white oak, 12 to 18 inches thick and 15 to 24 inches long, no problem.

    Bought about 2 weeks ago split 1 ½ cords of eucalyptus and pine. Went thru everything that I threw at it. Knots and all. Now for the down side. The plastic Guide Slide was pushed out (see Photo) will make new out of steel. The bracket on the wedge is spreading. Will weld plate on top and bottom to reinforce. So will give 4 stars would be 5 if not for those 2 problems. Even with these flaws would buy again. Love the half beam. PS can be put together by one but a lot easier with 2.

      Very impressed so far. Seems to struggle somewhat splitting greener woods well within the size range, but they do split. This unit should not be assembled with one (1) person. It is designed amazingly and the crate is engineered in a way that makes at home assembly very easy to accomplish. However, I believe there are some inconsistencies with the included instructions. Take time, use common sense, and don't lift the unit without help -- it can become unbalanced quickly (I had mine tied to a beam in the garage just for safety). I also had numerous issues with bolt holes not wanting to line up, holes not being completely drilled out, and worst of all is the paint job. This is a quality unit but shows a few signs of poor craftsmanship. My wedge (inside 2-way) was already chipping paint off before use. After only a few hours it is already almost bare. I'm also not a fan of the included 4-way wedge. It seems to smash the logs more than it splits. I like having more control as to how and where the log splits, but to each their own. There are also numerous areas along the frame that are chipping and pealing paint. Too bad it won't look good forever. The engine appears to be more than capable. Haven't had any problems cranking it after the first few tanks of gas. Not a fan of the oil fill locations (there are two), they will induce a big mess; I had to rig a special tube just to pour in oil without it bubbling back out. Otherwise it provides plenty of power to the ram for more than enough splitting force. Two thumbs up for including the first 17oz of engine oil in the packaging (I didn't see this mentioned anywhere before buying, so it was a nice surprise), even though it'll need to be changed after the first few hours of run-time. Keep in mind just how heavy this thing is -- not the easiest to move around single-handedly. Also it is somewhat cumbersome to move back and forth from vertical to horizontal modes. Overall a fantastic unit so far with plenty of great features. I haven't had any issues or setbacks as of yet (first few hours of operation). Hopefully it will last for years and years to come.

        Great product for the money. I researched several splitters before selecting this one. It has features that are extra cost or not available on other brands. I prefer the half beam design, rotating base plate, and 4 way splitter. I ordered it through Home Depot and there was no extra shipping fee as with other businesses. I also ordered the optional log table which I highly recommend for convenience when working. A friend assisted in assembly which could be done alone but significantly easier with two. The only thing I would like different is the leg stand would be better if there was a wheel attached for ease of movement. Overall I am very satisfied with the purchase.

        Good splitter with small issues
        Over all the splitter is great but there are a few things that need to be addressed. 1. The log stripper is easly bent. 2. The kick stand is an issue when hooking up slitter to low hitch like atv. It needs to be up so be carful not to drop splitter on foot. 3. It would be better if the splitting wedge was 1-2 inches taller. 4. It no longer comes with a 4 way splitting wedge attachment. That said the splitter has plenty of power and the cycle time is decent. The ergonomics of this splitter are great too.

        I knew that I had a very powerful log splitter when it split 16" green Elm . I am very pleased ,also with the comprehensive instructions for assembly from the crate . At 74 years old, I was easily able to put it together in my shop . Great machine !! I look forward to many years of good service .

            Half Beam - Full Power
            Great splitter for price point, thought I would need the 28 ton or larger but the 25 ton half beam has enough power to split logs 27 in. long and 25 plus in diameter. Split 5 cords and so far it's delivering fast, powerful splitting on a quality product.Thanks Yardmax for a Great Splitter and Home Depot for no worry fast delivery.

              Perfect for my needs. I was concerned that it may not get through some of the bigger knots, but I haven't run into anything it won't split yet. Very happy with the purchase.

                It’s a good splitter, some bolts vibrated loose but now that it’s all tightened up it’s running great. It can split a cord of Alder in 1.5 hr

                Powerful!
                I've been saving a pile of logs that my other splitter couldn't get through. This splitter powered through them. In a few cases, I had to take off the four-way wedge and just use the two-way wedge, if the log was very knotty. But I'm quite pleased. It starts right up, I can drag it around by hand when I need to. I like the vertical option. The log cradle could be bigger but it looks easy to extend with the bolt holes in it. Would certainly buy again.

                  I purchased this log splitter this past March and I have been very pleased with my purchase. After 6 months of research, I chose this splitter above the others because of all of the extra features that come included. The log cradles make splitting so much easier. I have used other log splitters and this one is noticeably faster than the others. Saying that, the four-way wedge that comes included seems to slow down splitting quite a bit to the point where I no longer use it. It seems to be faster to split with out it. Splits also easily get stuck underneath the 4 way wedge which adds more time to splitting with it. The installations instructions say that one person can do it. Is this possible – yes. Would I recommend it – no. It is a lot easier to have 2 or even 3 people to help, especially if you need to take it off of a truck. In my first 10 hours, it has been flawless. Splitting everything I have put its way. My favorite aspect of the log splitter is how the wedge wraps around the beam instead of the beam wrapping around the sides of the wedge. All of the mess that is made slides right off onto the ground instead of getting caught in the beam. Very good design. I am very pleased with my purchase!

                      Took a little longer then I expected to Assembly unit. Started right up after adding gas and oil. It's working as I expected it would, but I've only split about 500 pounds of wood so far.

                      The engineering of this splitter is incredible. Even the shipping crate & the simplistic method of assembling. I purchased this for retirement (67yrs old!) The 474lbs weight & narrow axle (for storage) are key factors for purchase, and also the faster piston speed (9 sec) The 25 ton does all I need!
