A Real Back Saver
At 63 years old the cradle is a true back saver. When quartering logs you don't have to pick each log off the ground to split it again. I'm able to split many more logs in less time.
Pros: High Quality, Price, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again

Ok!
I got this product to support the un-split half of the wood I am splitting! Did not accomplish this very well so I built an expansion that will fit on either side giving a 14" surface to hold the un-split chuck while you split the other half. My add on works great!
Pros: High Quality, Price, Durable, Easy To Use

I Fought Against This Purchase Because My Dad Built The Splitter
My original splitter was build in 1968 by my now passed away Dad, (it is now 45 years old,) has been a real trooper, has split well over 1500 cords of firewood, and is horizontal only. We had an ignition failure on it, borrowed an Ariens 34 ton, and was so impressed that I allowed two of my sons and myself to purchase a new 34 ton Ariens. It has already split about 5 cords, works flawlessly, and the cradle is priceless when using the machine with only one operator.. We really appreciate the... more

Ariens Log Splitter Cradle Kit A Little Small
My 27 Ton Ariens splitter is perfect and only strains a bit with large (18+ inch diameter), wet knotted logs which is to be expected. Otherwise it cuts through logs like butter so I am extremely happy with the splitter power, quality and dependable engine.

The Cradle Kit is a little smaller than I expected. A couple of inches wider and longer would make it perfect for all size logs. Overall I am happy with the attachment because now I don't need to lean-in on larger logs and I can throw logs... more

Ariens Parts
I purchased some accessories for my Ariens log splitter.
It was the log holder and it arrived within a day of the order.
The part was perfect and Log Splitter.com's service was outstanding.

Great Buy
I absolutely love this splitter, it muscles through everything put on it. It sips fuel and has a good return time- it's very easy to use.

I have split about 5 cords already and haven't met anything that has even made it groan. I run it around half throttle most of the time.

I do recommend the cradle to anyone buying it. I am also going to get the work table because the cradle is a little small.

It tows great and is well-balanced, and it's easy to move by hand.

Great buy.

Great Splitter
I have used a lot of wood splitters, and this is a good one.

I did my homework on them for a while before I bought one. Sweet little Subaru power plant that starts easy, fairly quiet and does not even groan on big knotty wood. Sips fuel like a Honda.

I will say this, when you buy it, spent the money and buy the table kit for 60 bucks (it is rugged) and buy the cradle kit for another 39 or whatever it is. Its a must. Probably should be included with the splitter, at least the cradle but... more

I have been splitting wood for 35 years. Mostly oak 15 to 18 inches in length. I recently purchased an Ariens 27 ton splitter and had the dealer install the cradle kit.

I give the machine high marks however the cradle is totally inadequate for what I do. It's too narrow and too short to be effective. Larger diameter wood tips right off the side and the returning wedge drags wood off the front of the cradle.

I haven't decided yet how to fix it but I'm thinkin at least one side will have... more

Well worth the $$. Bought it cheaper than I could buying the metal and make it myself.

Easy to install and the fit is perfect. This will really save the back on those long days.

Couldn't Be Better
I needed the log cradle fast. I found it easily at Log Splitters Direct, got quick phone service to answer some questions, and ordered online- and had it two days later.

Great Price
Grrrrreat price !!!! Bolted it right up to my Speeco splitter. Can't make it myself for that kind of money!

You can bolt a plate on to the cradle if you want a larger cradle area. I used aluminum diamond plate- light weight & no rust!

LSD RESPONDS: Please be aware that using other brand's accessories might affect the warranty on your splitter.
