Q: What hydraulic fluid do you recommend for the 4 & 5 ton electric log splitters you sell
by Michael F. from Ohio on January 02, 2015

A: Like just about all log splitters, whether they are gas or electric, use AW32 hydraulic fluid. It does not have to be a specific brand, but the AW32 is the viscosity you would want to use.

If you burn wood in your fireplace, fire pit, or chiminea you will be amazed at how useful the Dirty Hand Tools 100481 5-ton electric log splitter is!

The Dirty Hand Tools 100481 can be plugged it into any household outlet, so you can work inside a garage, work shop or shed where it's warm, turning small seasoned logs into useful firewood.

The 6-1/2" flat proof wheels let you move and store the Dirty Hand Tools 100481 with ease. Keep it out of the way until you need it.

Not What It Is
Not happy with product after it was delivered. Product description says on/off switch reality on as long as you hold button down. Operations require 1 hand on power switch and 1 hand on ram lever.

Non returnable product because after ups and you get it out of box there's no returning this to manufacturer or LogSplittersDirect. Be prepared to purchase your own on/off switch . Or grow a 3rd arm to manage log.

Keith,
Many log splitters on the market today require two-handed operation. The Boss Industrial electric splitters offer one-handed operation. Model: EC5T20 is similar to your 5 ton Dirty Hand Tools model.

You may return your DHT log splitter to us but it will be subject to a restocking fee.

"Opened" products and accessories can be returned within 30 days of delivery*, but will be subject to a 25% restocking fee to cover testing, cleaning and repackaging expenses. Simply return the item to us, shipping prepaid & using the most convenient shipping method available to you. Some products include free shipping, so if you return one of these products our actual outbound shipping costs will be deducted from your return refund. Opened returns must be in salable condition with original materials and packaging."

Works Great!
Just used it over the course of 3 days to split a new cord of wood and it worked excellent! I would definitely recommend it for the price.

Splitting Wood
Bought this splitter to replace a previous one. It was recommended by a local dealer.

Only used once, but it worked fine then. I expect it will continue to do so. Most of the electric log splitter appear to be made along the same lines.

The Dirty Hands splitter was recommended, can be serviced locally and the price was much better than the rest.

So far so good. I am happy with my purchase.

Nice Product
I received the log splitter which was delivered to my front door already assembled.

The only thing I had to do was put the rear wheels on and plug it in!

It works like a champ and I am impressed by it's performance.

Great Little Splitter
Received a cord of wood, ( 18"L rounds ). They were supposed to be no more than 10" diameter. Shortly after delivery it snowed 12" so I had a few weeks of thaw before I began stacking. To make a long story short, approximately 1/2 of the cord is closer to 12 to14" dia. They don't fit in my wood burner so I went online and bought my Dirty Hand Tools Splittter. Put it in the shop on a workbench, turned on the radio, turned on the heat, it works like a champ. FAST DELIVERY,... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Exceeded Expectations, I'd Buy It Again

After All The Research, This Is The One
I did as much due-diligence and research on electric log splitters as I possibly could. There are many brands out there from manufacturers I've never heard of so I had no bias or preconceived notions. The choices for electric log splitters is a narrower field than the gas powered models. After receiving the box I quickly assembled the wheels and was off to split some rounds. The instructions were easy to follow and I was ripping through my stack of seasoned Fir and Cedar in no time. I love it!... more

So Neat
It is so fast. Very powerful and easy to use. We really like it . Husband had a heart attack, so he can not chop with an axe. It was a great buy. I did shop around for the price.
Pros: Price, Easy To Store, Quiet, Fast

Great Splitter, Great Price, Great Deliver
I ordered this splitter online. I was amazed that there was no tax and no delivery charges (especially since this weighs in at more than 100 lbs).

They called me the day after my order to verify that I in fact placed the order, which I thought was a common sense way of preventing fraud.

The splitter arrived 2-3 days later. I was stunned and prepared to wait a week or two as heavy equipment often requires shipping that is a real pain in the behind.

The splitter works great and I've... more

Log Splitter For Old Guys
I think it's a good value and easy to use for an older (80+) person like me in spite of having to hand-split the larger rounds first.
Pros: Price, Easy To Use, Light Weight, Easy To Store
Cons: Wedge Needs To Be Sharper, Exploxive Force At Times, Won, Won't Tke Larger Logshave Hand Split Firtst

As Billed
This Dirty Hand splitter performs as described. I had no problem splitting 20" seasoned oak all morning long. It ran much quieter than expected. The ram returns to ready as you position the next split faster than a big gas splitter.

I did it in the warmth of a garage. No problem lifting it into a SUV to move to a second location to split there as well.

I raised the unit on to a set of stools to eliminating stooping to move all the splits.

Be sure to tip it up on end to check... more
