Great Machine
I purchased an Ariens because of the reliability . I own older Ariens Equipment , and always has been dependable . This Log Splitter ran through anything we put in it.

Heavy knotted logs are no problem for it. Very satisfied with the Product , it was purchased as a Christmas Gift , and is already in operation and done a Cord of wood with it.

The splitter was delivered in a timely manner. My biggest and only gripe was getting it out of the crate. Geez! You folks definitely did not want this piece of equipment to get damaged. This is a good thing, I suppose.

Well, she fired up on the first pull and purred like a kitten at the milk tap. I am impressed! The operation is smooth and timely. The engine must be of a new generation of quiet. I have never known a small equipment engine to run, whereby a conversation can take place... more

Ariens 27-ton Log Splitter
I bought one of these Ariens 27 ton log splitters and have been very happy with it. I have split a lot of wood. It is amazing. I haven't found anything it can't do. It might slow down a bit when you get to the real bad stuff but never stops splitting. It starts easy and runs great.

I bought the work table and the handle to raise and lower the ram. I don't know about the handle but the table is a must. It really speed thing up. Also they talk so much about cycle time. It really does't matter... more

27 Ton Log Splitter
I purchased the 27 ton Ariens log splitter in March of 2014 from my local dealer. Since the purchase of this splitter my family has put 92 plus cord of wood through this splitter. Only minor issue is the orange side bars up by wedge they bend sometimes... not a big deal.

We have changed oil in the motor 5 times already. This splitter was well worth the money spent. Yesterday my daughter purchased a new one so we can have 2 splitters going at once (same model 27 ton) We have had no issues... more

Replaced My Troy-bilt With This Ariens
I purchased a Troy-Bilt 27 ton splitter from Lowes after 3 hrs. The spider coupling in the pump coupler was coming apart so I exchanged it for a new unit. The new replacement unit had the same failure in the same time frame so I returned it for a full refund. I went to Home Depot and purchased this Ariens 27 ton and let me tell you it is WELL worth the extra 200 dollars over the Troy-Bilt. The Ariens has a handle on the tongue and nothing on the Troy-Bilt. The leg stand on the Ariens is made A... more

Ariens Splitter
I received the Ariens 27 ton log splitter. After uncrating the splitter I noticed several things.
1) One of the tires was completely off the rim
2) The bolt holding the stub axle to the frame was missing
3) I serviced the engine and added the proper amount of hydraulic oil to the splitter tank
4) I started the engine and it ran fine
5) I pulled the lever to actuate the ram, IT DID NOT MOVE
6) Thinking the oil lines needed priming loosened a line, no oil came from the line... more

Arisen 27 Ton Splitter
First splitter I've ever purchased or even used. Bought after reading the many positive reviews from other owners and for the reasonable price and free shipping Log Splitters Direct offered. I've split over 6 racks of green and dead Oak and I am very pleased with this unit's performance! The Subaru motor starts up first pull, runs smooth and paired with the splitters hydraulic unit, there hasn't been a piece of wood the wedge has failed to split.

Beyond Expectations
I have just received my log splitter and I have to say that it is one of the best purchases I have ever made. It goes way beyond my expectations.

It starts with just one pull and splitting wood was never so easy. I would recommend this product to every one, you will not be disappointed.

It came put together which was a plus. It splits wood great every time, it's easy to move, and it is a great looking machine. If any one out there is shopping for a log splitter, trust me, this is the one.

I Love My Ariens 27 Ton Splitter. the Engine Has Plenty of Power, It's a Carb Engine and I Don'T Have Any Issues With Fumes, It Burns Very Clean.

I Like the Layout and It's Easy to Use. I Also Like the Fuel Cut-Off On the Engine, It Allows Me to Run the Gas Out of the Carb For Longer Storage Periods Since Gas Doesn'T Store Well, Like It Used to.

I Am Sure I Will Have This For a Long Time. I Am Glad It's Not Made in China !!!

Ariens 27 Ton Splitter
So far, so good. Delivered as quick as the mail. A couple bolts to reverse the tongue, pin the lever in place, 1-1/2 gallons of hydraulic fluid, some fresh gas and she fired on the first pull. Purged the air from the hydraulic lines as required and ran a couple test pieces through. The real test comes in a week as I have a log truck load of logs coming. I am used to a much faster cycle time but usually reverse the lever after the first 2 or 3 inches of split cuz the log usually pops apart... more

I got my log splitter this week and I'm very pleased with the performance and construction of it. Payed a little more than the box store splitters but it's well worth it . The Subaru motor starts second pull every time and it handles everything superstorm Sandy has thrown at me and its made in USA . You will not be disappointed with this log splitter

this log splitter has been awesome, it does all it was advertised to do. I can quickly get a truck load of firewood handled in no time.
What I like best is that I have never smelled fumes from this clean burning engine, that's a big plus for me.. After two years I see no rust on any metal parts. I like that.

I can shut the fuel off to the carb and let it run out the fuel in the carb bowel so it doesn't clog the carb during storage.. delivery and assembly went flawless. I bought 2... more

This is an outstanding splitter. I didn't order any accessories, nor do I find I need them. Splitting Pinon Pine rounds up to two feet in diameter and 24" long, the Ariens chugs right through them.

The only setup was moving the hitch to the towing position from the shipping position and topping off the hydraulic reservoir with almost two gallons of the recommended ISO 32 hydraulic fluid. No engine oil required. Just add gas and start.

The entire ordering, shipping and setup process... more

We read the reviews on this page and decided to get this log splitter. It took my husband and his friend a few minutes to do minimum assembly. The splitter is much quieter than the ones we used to rent. It works great and my husband is very happy. Read the other reviews for more technical information. But we highly recommend this splitter!

Nightmare!
I bought this a year ago, the switching valve leaked from the get go. I took it to the Ariens mechanic, for warranty repair (an hour drive to Fresno) and 1 year later I still don't have it. First, it took them forever just to get the warranty worked out. The Ariens rep said it was ready around 4 months ago. I drive down and find it still leaked and didn't have the power to split wood. Last week they said they finally fixed it. I go to pick it up and the switching valve is installed upside down... more

I have been splitting wood for 35 years. Mostly oak 15 to 18 inches in length. I recently purchased an Ariens 27 ton splitter and had the dealer install the cradle kit.

I give the machine high marks however the cradle is totally inadequate for what I do. It's too narrow and too short to be effective. Larger diameter wood tips right off the side and the returning wedge drags wood off the front of the cradle.

I haven't decided yet how to fix it but I'm thinkin at least one side will have... more

An Amazing Splitter!
I purchased this splitter 18 months ago and, because I sell firewood all year long, the splitter is used continuously. It is easy to use, very strudy, and quite dependable.

The splitter is very attractive the bright orange color is quite appealing. The controls are easy to use, the larger tires elevate it to a comfortable height in the horizontal position, and the power is awesome.

And, it is stingy on gas. This is my first hydraulic splitter and, in time, I foresee the need to... more

Surprised my husband with this for Valentine's Day/Birthday. He had no clue and was a little miffed at me when the semi truck came down the road to drop it at our cabin, as I'd told him it was lawn furniture.

He ran it pretty steadily the next 2 days, splitting up piles of logs that had accumulated. He's the envy of our cabin community. I was kind of worried. Wasn't sure if I'd selected a good one, or even if he'd ever thought about getting a log splitter! Turns out he's the envy of our... more

Had An Immediate Oil Leak From The Control Valve
I got it in good time and got it uncrated when we found one of the tires was pushed off the rim and flat. Managed to get that inflated and got it started ok. Cycled the hydraulics through a couple of cycles and checked the fluid level. It was low as the instructions said it would be so I added about a gallon and a quart of Dextron III as that was one of the recommended fluids. I had several sections of Oak and started with one. It split it easily but when I retracted the wedge, it spit oil out... more

Arrived in good shape, took while to get out of crate, but got it all assembled, ran then cycled, checked fluid. It was low so had to go to town, added put it to work immediately. Was worried the small Subaru engine might not drive it but so far done all I have thrown at it. Knarled hickory and all.

Better Than Expected
I'm very pleased with the performance of this log splitter. I've cut thru three p-up loads of Pecan and live Oak wood. Split like a charm and this is some tough wood. My only hitch with this machine is the control handle. Should be mounted on the side, not in your face. careful leaning down, it will put a knot on your head.

I have used a lot of wood splitters, and this is a good one.

I did my homework on them for a while before I bought one. Sweet little Subaru power plant that starts easy, fairly quiet and does not even groan on big knotty wood. Sips fuel like a Honda.

I will say this, when you buy it, spent the money and buy the table kit for 60 bucks (it is rugged) and buy the cradle kit for another 39 or whatever it is. Its a must. Probably should be included with the splitter, at least the cradle but... more

I purchased the splitter and it arrived on the exact day it was promised!!

The crate was amazing. It took a half hour and a three foot crowbar to uncrate the splitter and another few minutes to figure out how to get the splitter out of the pallet. The needed assembly was probably the easiest part of the whole arrival process.

The splitter works like a champ- the 27 ton splitter has not met any challenges yet, it powers through knots and crotches with ease.

Wedge Is Weak Link
I bought the smaller Ariens (21 ton?). First day, knotty log jammed, while retracting wedge the steel wedge attachment point (actually part of the wedge) broke, requiring a replacement wedge $200+). Wouldn't you think they would have a less expensive shear pin as the weak link?

I returned the splitter and upgraded to the 27 ton. It has the same flaw. My wedge broke last week, but a welder friend fixed it. Come on, Ariens, there is no excuse for the expensive wedge being the weak link. ... more

Ariens 27-ton Horizontal / Vertical Gas Log Splitter
I have been really pleased with the purchase of the Ariens 27 ton splitter. I also own a 30 year old Ariens tiller that I still use to garden. The quality remains with the products the company designs and manufactures. The engine placement, ease of mobility, and splitting power are my top 3 praises. Great product and would highly recommend to others.

Wise Purchase
Uncrated my log splitter and it started easily and worked well. Decided not to split too much wood today as we were having a snow storm. Will wait for better weather to do more.

Was concerned that the splitter might have been damaged upon arrival as one side of the shipping crate was thrashed. The understructure was still solid, and I would highly recommend improving the sides and top of the crating for future log splitter deliveries.

I absolutely love this splitter, it muscles through everything put on it. It sips fuel and has a good return time- it's very easy to use.

I have split about 5 cords already and haven't met anything that has even made it groan. I run it around half throttle most of the time.

I do recommend the cradle to anyone buying it. I am also going to get the work table because the cradle is a little small.

It tows great and is well-balanced, and it's easy to move by hand.

Great buy.

Great engine and strong hydraulics. Easy to start with a perfect working height.

Got it very quickly, it was in great shape, and we love using it. It was well crated and ready to go except for gasoline.

You all represented it well, and it was everything you said it would be. Although it could cause marital problems as my wife wants to split the logs.

This Splitter So Far Is Great
I have only split maybe 2 cords but it handles every piece with ease, even the ones that were a complete knot.

The engine starts every time with no problems, and it uses very little fuel. I recommend this splitter for anyone who burns 4 or 5 cords a year.

The log splitter arrived in a timely manner and was in great shape with no visible damage. It was easy to uncrate and setup. Started fast once I remembered to turn on the fuel valve (OOPS).

We split almost two cords of wood over a two day period. The splitter worked flawlessly. The engine was smooth with plenty of power and easy on gas. We highly recommend this unit.

Thanks Log Splitters Dircect
Fabulous transaction and great price. Thank you! However, the splitter is at the cabin in the garage where there is no access during the winter months.

Currently there is approx 4 ft of snow. Next spring when we are splitting wood again I will provide you with feedback.
