Questions & Answers

when are these expected to be back in stock

Asked by: cwl
These are imported from China so you are at the mercy of those at Yardmax calculating and ordering the necessary inventory to keep their vendors like HD stocked up. It seems that either they haven't got that quite right yet or these are extremely popular. Once shipped, then you wait for the "slow boat from China" to get them stocked.

Can I pre pay in advance for this splitter since it sells out before I even get notified that it is back in stock?
Asked by: Woodman2018
No, but not sure I would want to. However you can sign up for notifications from HD so that you get an email from them when back in stock. However, I have done this on several things at HD website and I have found that I don't get that email even though it is back in stock or their system never takes my request in the first place for some reason.

are the with and height measurements correct ? seems like they could be reversed
Asked by: samIam
The Yardmax answer was incorrect. They gave you the dimensions on the full beam splitters, the half beam splitter measurements are 82"x36.25"x48.50" (LxWxH). This is the advantage of the half beam splitters in that they are narrower and shorter which allows for a smaller footprint to store it in your shed or garage and it also allows you to be closer to the beam when lifting heavy logs. In addition, you are not having to straddle the wheels as much when operating and lifting as you have to in the full beam models Plus it is 2 inches lower to the ground than the full beam splitters which means a bit easier lifting. You can confirm these measurements through the link on HD website that shows the dimensions for these units under the assembly instructions.

The old log splitter had a a 30 ton ram and this is just as good as that. I fired it up Christmas day and split up some Box Elder, it did a great job and ran like a champ. Very Very HAPPY.

Heavily built, the side wood cradles are sturdy. I really like the spinning butt plate so as the wedge starts and the log turns the butt end spins as needed. Also the engine is up out of the way of the split wood, excellent idea.

I hesitate to rate something so shortly after I've purchased and based on that reason, I'm giving this a 4 star review. Note: If this continues to operate has it has, through just the 3 cord's I've run through it, it is certainly worthy of 5 stars. I did week's and week's of research. Watched YouTube vid's, read review's, talked to people, etc. The first thing that sold me on this was the design. The half-beam configuration is so practical. Especially in the horizontal position, with the tire "not" in the way.....that's HUGE!! I've run the conventional design, in horizontal position and SO many times, tripped on the tire. Too, the position of the actuator handle is very convenient in both horizontal and vertical. The second thing that sold me was the price for such a quality made machine. Especially in the tonnage. Though most of what I split is relatively soft,here in the Pacific NW, in comparison to the North East or South West, it's nice to have the power for those gnarly butt-section's of broad leaf maple, Doug fir or Hemlock. The idea of the U-beam strength, as opposed to the I-beam and the spinner plate, make total sense and after seeing the spinner plate in action with some 30" rounds, I see their reasoning and the practicality. . Greatly appreciate the side plates that come with and the 4-way splitter......which has been great for certain applications. The fact that the motor is out of reach of wood falling off the table is nice and that the hoses are protected with the metal coil's is comforting. The likely hood of it leaving the property is slim, so the trailerability is not a concern.....if it does, it will be trailered....so, the shorter wheelbase makes it hugely maneuverable in tight places, here on the property, even by hand. I see this machine lasting for a long time. The weld's are clean and appear strong. The Briggs engine is suitably matched and runs relatively quite for something its size. Yardmax has certainly designed and thought out a very nice piece of equipment!!! I strongly recommend it, for anyone looking for a log splitter.

Assembly took approx 2-3 hrs. Once assembled, the engine fired up after 2 pulls. The log splitter worked flawless, splitting oak and juniper w/ easy. I recommend the optional work table.
