Impressed At First Sight
I'm pleased with the purchase of this splitter so far, Only problem was it does not come with a hydraulic oil return filter which I believe is a must...so I found this at Tractor Supply then plumbed it in and good to go! Only used it once for about an hour on some very tough curly maple that had been down for about a year and not cut up until recently.

This was some of the hardest stuff I've tried to split with a maul/wedge. I put the splitter to the test and was pleased with the results.... more

Cold Natured Motor
Received without problem, no damage or short parts. Assembled without problem (had help from 1 person) added hydraulic oil and engine oil and gasoline. Would start only with throttle in idle position and full choke Then it would die because you could not uncooked fast enough.

Would restart with choke off, but it would not take throttle increase for 1-2 minutes. After warm-up, started splitting pecan wood. I thought it would fail several times at full throttle. Does not appear strong... more

Good Product. Worth Taking A Look At. Best Buy For The Price And
Have not found one thing wrong with this product. I have split 6 Cords of wood, starts on first pull. I have split logs with diameter longer than my leg from knee to toe, I'm 6 foot tall, knee to toe 26''. Granted it is mainly ash that I'm cutting but had a few pieces of walnut just as big and didn't see a difference in cutting power.

I would and will buy this product in the future if they continue to build this kind of quality product. LOL my wife just reminded my that the handle should be... more

Just What We Wanted
Assembly was not difficult if you can follow directions. We used Dexron III in case we wanted to use it below freezing. Ran it for about 2-1/2 hours on a tank of gas and split wood continuously, resulting in a huge pile of firewood.

The side racks are VERY helpful, saving loads of extra picking up. Splits very well in both horizontal and vertical positions. I cannot imagine wearing this machine out in my lifetime.

Time Will Tell?
Yes it took 2 men to lift the "I" Beam puttogether in about 1 hour. Have used only twice and I am extremely pleased with the splitting power. Engine started on second pull. Yes I have recommended this splitter toa friend.

Had my brother in law on hand so we could unload and assemble splitter when it arrived as instructed. Splitter didn't arrive when he was there because of some delivery mix up. I had to unload and assemble it by myself (no other help). It wasn't an ideal situation, but I was able to get it done because I placed on level ground to do the assembly.

Splitter fired right up, and I started splitting wood that day. I have tamarack, white pine, larch, cedar, birch and a few other variety's of... more
