Q: Which is the better engine?
Subaru, Kohler or Honda

What is your recommendation for a 30 ton or greater log splitter?

by George Black from Washington on September 24, 2011

A: Thanks for your inquiry.

Honda is the better engine.

My recommendation would be the Iron and Oak Ez Split 34 ton, with the Honda engine.

Most folks think of Ariens as a manufacturer of high quality lawn & snow equipment. Well, they are- and they make a fine log splitter, too. These are made right here in the USA, with the same attention to detail and durability.

The Subaru engine starts easily and runs quietly, and sits at the front of the beam. That way it is protected from dropped logs, and balances the unit so it tows smoothly.

A nice feature are the controls that can be operated from either side of the splitter.... more

Wow
I've been splitting wood with a small 15 ton splitter for the last 15 years. What was I thinking, I should have upgraded years ago. There is nothing that this machine won't split. The test was with 30" rounds of Hickory that were 20" thick. This machine went right through those rounds! It even went right through the rounds that had some serious knots. Buy this splitter, it's the best!
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

Fair Value
Looked at many splitters, decided to try Subaru motor, never tried one prior to this. Works fairly well so far. I have split 10 cords in the past week. Today after about 6 cords it seemed to be heating up and sputtering, so I shut it down for day. Other then that issue it has been a decent machine. Not bad value for price. The extra little side tables are nice to prevent falling of pieces. Getting it out of shipping crate was major hassle had to dismantle two entire pallets to get it hooked up... more

Scared About Some Bad Designs
The head tore loose from the cylinder and at 3/4 throttle it over heats. At full throttle it doesn't get to warm, I think.
Pros: Quiet, Price, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

So Far, So Good
After much research, a co-worker and I purchased two 34-ton splitters roughly at the same time. I was always leery of the Subaru motor. I say this because I've not used any equipment with a Subaru, nor anyone I know. And, 7 hp seems too small for a 34-ton splitter.

I looked into the Speecos and Swishers but didn't like the designs and lack of accessories (but they did have larger motors, eg. the Speeco 27 ton comes with a Briggs 10hp - my dad owns this one and loves it). The reviews... more

I recently purchased the 34 Ton model, it arrived well crated and more assembled than I expected. I wisely opted for the drop gate shipping as the unit weighs more than six hundred pounds.

It is well made, the fit and finish are very good, and well engineered to boot. The engine location up front protects it from damage, and I like the castering front wheel. It also has a stabilizer leg located between the wheels to anchor it solidly in place.

I like the features of the Subaru engine... more

Gotta Love The Simple
The work table I purchased from Log Splitters Direct was shipped fast and got here quick.

Now to the table. The hardware that comes with the table made the install even quicker than you could imagine. It only took minutes and it was on with the DeWalt impact, that quick.

I also bought the cradle kit and of course it went on that easy as well. Between the table and cradle kit, it cuts down on the bending and picking up of logs dropped in between splits. It really does speed things up a... more
