Takes a beating
Home Depot didnt really take care in the handling of my order. I did buy 2 yr extended warranty so I wasnt too worried, just annoyed. I got home and unpacked (what was left of) box. Turned out some parts of the hardware kit needed to install the wheels had ripped out and lost through box holes. Completed assembly and tested with some 10 to 15 in diameter logs and it worked fine. As for missing pieces. I called yardmax number in box to register product and explain missing pieces. They agreed to send out replacement hardware kit no charge!

    Works Great - 1/2 Face Cord Split So Far
    Works great so far with only a 1/2 face cord ran through it. Mostly ash trees. I am giving this 4 stars because it seems to operate ok, but: 1) There are a few cosmetic (hopefully until it rusts) issues as pictured. 2) The "legs" seem to be offset and it stand up kind of sideways and funky (also pictured). 3) I feel that rubber feet should be utilized and provided instead of the metal legs scrapping on the ground. Overall, seems to be a great purchase.

      Very solid built, quality log splitter
      Ship estimate was 7d but delivered in 3d. VERY HEAVY. The hardware pack was previously opened & hardware was all loose in box. Some bolts being barely long enough made assembly tougher. Fits together well & feels very solid. It cuts and resets quickly.

        As others have stated, the packaging is horrendously inferior. A splayed box open on both ends arrived at my Home Depot store for pick-up. Styrofoam packing was broken and parts were loose. After an examination of the contents all parts were accounted for and undamaged, thank goodness. The instructions were fine except the detail of how the tray installs. It only requires sliding it into place. No bolt tightening or adding are required. The instructions give the impression bolt manipulation is needed. Assembly was fine and fit and finish seem quite good for a product in this price range. Performance is outstanding. It has handled the heavy, large oak pieces I have thrown at it. Learning how to position or reposition a piece of wood is key to maximizing this splitter's potential. Flipping and rotation are sometimes necessary to 'crack' through the tougher pieces. I waited a couple months to write this review after having used the splitter many different times. Performance has been consistently good. Don't hesitate in buying this splitter. It's a great piece of equipment for the light to moderate user. As much as I am a lover of internal combustion engines this splitter outshines others by offering a simple electric motor. Roll it to where you want to use, slide in the tray and plug it in. That's all there is to it. Good job Yardmax! Now get the packaging thing figured out please. 4 stars ONLY because of the poor packaging.
          Good so far!
          Okay, we bought this to split wood, make smaller pieces. The first few weeks, my neighbor used it to split 1.5 cords down to kindling size. The next time my other neighbor used it to cut down larger pieces. Today I finally used it to 17inch round oak. However, I ended up splitting them in half by to easier facilitate splitting. The wheels are not the best and the legs seem week. I wouldn't want to haul this to far from home but it makes the job a lot easier of splitting. The hydraulic fluid is very hard to find for this particular machine. At this price point, it is completely worth it since I can now split wood without the difficulties of doing it by hand.

            Really surprised how well it is made
            This is a great log splitter, solid, well made and easy to assemble. I’ve been splitting 36” rounds that were quartered and it handles these with no problem. The instruction/assembly manual is very well written and easy to follow. I had no problem with assembly. I ordered online from Home Depot and it shipped within one day and arrived via UPS in three days. The package was not damaged but is very heavy. I would highly recommend this log splitter. I split the wood in the photo in about one hour.

              Needed a compact, low maintenance & easy to store splitter to take care of the trees I routinely down on my property for firewood. This little guy did the trick. It split everything I threw at it including some oversized red oak. I will note that the first one I ordered failed immediately - the ram didn’t return after splitting one log. But, returned to HD & ordered another. This one works great. Make sure it’s level and make sure you open the wing nut breather prior to use.

                I needed a wood splitter as I burn 4 cords a year in Central NH. I’ve been using a maul to split my wood and man is that a back killer after an hour. This beast is well worth it. I like the two hand operation as my 6 year old son helps and likes to split the wood and I’ll change out the wood making it a quick processing of wood. Buy it, you won’t regret it.

                Great Basic, Affordable Electric Log Splitter
                This basic, simple and affordable electric log splitter is a great purchase for a homeowner who needs a handy machine to process firewood. I previously would hand split 2 cords of wood each fall for firewood and since I've started using this splitter, I've saved countless hours splitting wood with a maul, saving both my back and arms from strain. As soon as I got this splitter, I used it to attack a cord of wood as well as some random chunks of wood I had lying around. It can handle anything you can throw at it. It split with fair ease large, odd shaped difficult logs that would have destroyed my body splitting apart. It is very easy to use transport and store. Isn't too loud. A real great machine for a homeowner on a budget. Watch out for damage to the box when it is shipped, it is also extremely heavy and needs 2 people to assemble.

                  Nice electric splitter. Came well-packaged which is good because the shippers really tore up the box. Its quite heavy and solid. Took about 45 minutes to bolt on the stand. Not hard at all, instructions were good. Having a second set of hands would have made it go much quicker. Hardware was well packaged. Appears this will be a nice addition to the wood shed. Sure beats swinging a maul overhead! I wish it had a way to select one hand operation, but I understand the liability involved.
