Q: What hydraulic pump is used on this unit. Is it 2 stage heavy duty?

by Jim Whitesides from Georgia on March 04, 2016

A: Jim,

This is a 2-stage pump made by Haldex. It isn't listed as a heavy duty pump but it has plenty of strength for this prosumer-rated splitter. This means it falls between consumer and professional grade.

Great machine. Works awesome. Took some time to get the motor started, but MTD Employee was great on walking me through the step in getting the motor to start.

My Back Loves My Log Splitter!
Since having two trees felled in my mom's back yard, I had enough wood for two years. The wood stove I have burns smaller wood so the larger rounds needed to be split.

I purchased a splitting maul, some wedges and a sledge hammer to do the job. Hoping to get some exercise I started to build my stack of split wood. After three hours of splitting I had enough wood for about half a day's burn.

The trees were Chinese elm and were harder to split because of the way the grain twisted... more

Mtd Gold 27-ton Horizontal / Vertical Log Splitter
Just got this log splitter so I can't comment on quality...you should send out this survey after a month or so...I just got it yesterday.

I did find the process of buying and delivery to be a snap and the price was fair so I would recommend your company.

1 Pull
1st pull after going through the priming stage, it started. I have used 6 times since and even after sitting in days of rain, 1st pull again. The splitter runs super.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Easy To Store, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Packaging, Expensive

It's A Good Machine, But..................
Mine, as it turned out, had a bad pump when it was new. MTD did fix it, after it was out of warranty. Even though MTD shows warranty stations for log splitters it does not mean they work on them let alone test them.

A Great Machine...but!
From order to delivery of my MTD Gold 27 ton log splitter everything was right on time as promised. After reading the manual, some minor assembly, checking the fluids and adding the gasoline, I started the engine with a couple of pulls. Giving it a minute to warm up I put the first piece in and split it with no problem. However, after turning one half of the split piece and advancing the wedge to make another split, I noticed hydraulic fluid streaming from the back of the the control valve. I... more

"nuts" Tree Wood In 2015
We farm walnuts. The majority of our orchard is pushing 32 years old and some of the trees croak every year. The tree limb scaffolds are not that big but anything below the scaffolding is 12" to 20" in diameter. This machine made splitting the 20" long rounds a breeze. The verticle mode is easy on my back!!! :) Cycling is nice and the auto stop is a pleasure. "GREAT SPLITTER".
