by Joe Farrea from Rhode Island on September 16, 2014

A: Joe - yes, the Ariens 917011 22 ton log splitter has a 2-stage, 11 GPM hydraulic pump

Q: Can I buy a 4 way wedge for it?
by Will Russell from Massachusetts on August 19, 2014

A: Will - sorry, but Ariens does not currently offer a 4-way wedge for any of their log splitter models. I've heard they have something in the works, but as of now, there is not a 4-way wedge available that will fit up to this model.
by Dale, Product Expert

Q: Does this item require assembly after delivery
by Debbie from North Carolina on December 07, 2013

A: Thanks for your inquiry.

Yes, this item will require some assembly. There is not much to put together and shouldn't take you longer than about 30-45 minutes to set up and get going. Uncrating the unit, checking all fluids, attaching the tow bar, and hooking up the hydraulic lines and that's about it. Anymore questions, feel free to ask.

Thanks and have a great day!

Q: where is the oil drain plug located and is it hard to get to on the areins 22 ton splitter
by Robert from Oklahoma on December 07, 2013

A: Thanks for your inquiry.

This model is equipped with a 4.5HP/174cc Subaru EA175V 4-Cycle Overhead Cam Engine. The oil drain is located below the exhaust in the picture. It is very accessible when its time to change the oil. Anymore questions, feel free to ask.

Thanks and have a great day!

Impressive Ariens Horizontal/vertical 22 Ton Log Splitter
When I received the Ariens Model 917011 22 Ton Horizontal/Vertical Log Splitter I was impressed with the design and operation. I did install Loctite 242 Threadlocker on most of the cap screws and nuts because of the vibration and flexing of some parts of the machine during normal operation just to be safe. It did come with a correct amount of hydraulic fluid in the reservoir and motor oil in the engine. After installation and tightening all cap screws I added a full tank of gas. The Subaru... more

"Low cost with payment by check. Originally I received information they had the Ariens Model 917011 Log Splitter on back order and would be shipped in late August 2014. Then a few days later I received an e-mail stating the log splitter has shipped. It arrived fairly quickly by the freight carrier. The only part of the shipment I was not happy about was the $50.00 lift gate fee. Very few delivery freight trucks that I have used did not have a lift gate and that was generally because of items under 60 lbs. Otherwise I was happy receiving the shipment earlier than what the 1st notification of a backorder that I received."

Be Careful On The Tough Logs!
I bought the 22 ton and split about 1/2 cord before I broke the machine. I sunk the wedge into a very tough piece of Oak (very knotty section). Wedge stuck, wood would not split, attempted to retract the wedge. When the wood hit the side eject bars, the engine strained, then the coupling from the wedge to the hydraulic ram broke into pieces. (operator error? perhaps...but I would think the wedge connection should be engineered to withstand the forces that the system can place upon it).

Great Buy For A Great Machine!!!!
After years of searching Craigs List and other sources for a used log splitter and finding average condition machines for $1000 give or take and not always knowing what the tonnage rating was, I found Log Splitters Direct. The value for the machine I received is outstanding. The shipping company was a joke and also upsetting. I was instructed to call the shipping company to make arrangements, which I promptly did. They asked me if the following Monday was OK for delivery, I said yes. They... more

My New Ariens 22 Ton Logsplitter.
After splitting the fist, and only cord so far, The 22 tonner worked perfect. After assembly, easy, and filling with gas, it started with one pull. NICE. If it keeps performing like this it will be a great machine. Run's Fast, Smooth and Quiet. Slices through the Cottonwood like butter. The service to purchase and receive the splitter from Log Splitters Direct was excellent.

Glad I Waited
I was going to buy a log splitter from our local Lowe's. This particular one has a Honda engine and I know the performance of a Honda product is highly rated. However, my wife got on the internet and found the Ariens with a Subaru motor. I am so glad I waited and got the Ariens. It splits wood like a knife cutting thru butter. I can do a truck load of wood (huge logs , too) in less than an hour. And, the folks we ordered from are super to deal with. They will answer all your questions and... more

Great Splitter - Very Powerful
Made in the USA, and I'm very happy with my purchase. It split large (22" dia) Oak fine. I had some extremely twisted grain large Oak logs, and it split them. It got slow, but forced it's way through, actually cutting through the wood instead of it splitting along the grain.

Cycle time is fast, and better yet, the ram stops where you want, so when splitting short logs, you don't have to wait for the wedge to go far before hitting the wood. This may be typical, but it's not how my... more

"Only negative was the $50 extra expense for a lift gate truck, but glad I paid it. The shipper, R&L, was excellent, and very professional. The head office called early to tell me they were running behind schedule due to an accident. The driver went WAY above and beyond expectations, helping me load it onto a trailer for transport to our land."

Put A Little Fun In Your Work
First off, we are nearing our 75th birthday. And we got everything together very easy with the instructions, and after reading instructions, we, myself and wife split over a cord of wood in less than a hour. And as hard as this work is, WE were not even tired, in fact enjoyed and had fun.. Recommend this splitter to any AGE....

Very Nice
I find this machine easy to use, with one exception I feel it needs a more balanced base for the vertical use it becomes unbalanced and starts to tilt forward. Outside of that which can be dangerous it is easy to use.

Breezes Through Seasoned Oak....
The Ariens 22 ton Log Splitter breezes through seasoned oak. I split some large diameter logs, and as long as the blade is on the grain, the splitter is superb. I broke it in with three cords of seasoned oak, and it performed flawlessly.

It is light enough to move around by hand, and is safe and easy to use. The Subaru engine starts right up. I did use Locktite on the assembly nuts, and purchased five gallons of hydraulic oil, you should too.

After splitting two cords of oak, the oil... more

Ariens 22 Ton Log Splitter
I go through only 3-4 cords of firewood per year, all Fir and Maple, which we have on our own property. I have been using an electric 6 ton splitter but it struggles on “wet” wood and is cumbersome to use even with two people.

The Ariens 22 ton splitter works like a champ. It took me less than an hour to set it up, from in the protective crate and did add about a gallon of hydraulic fluid. I had no problems with the shipper. I have only split about two cords so far and have used the splitter... more
