Wow!!!!
Blown away at how this thing splits so much faster then a hydraulic unit, and will split so far pretty much anything I can lift on to the work table. Will get stock on a hard branch knot every now and then, but just back it off, and hit it again and it blasts its way through.

Cycle time is a huge advantage in regard to speed, and really happy with the fail-safe two hand design...had my 9 year old helping out the other day, she engaged the gears, and I loaded the table...super easy to split a... more

Good And Fast
I purchased about a month ago. The one problem I had was keeping the outside belt on. I put a 1/8 inch spacer in the clutch, this moved the belts over toward the center of the fly wheel. I also discarded the regular belts and replaced them with 2 Kevlar belts because the regular belts are useless.

With this machine you have to know the grain pattern of the wood so you don't get it stuck on the wedge.they claim that you can split a 30 inch diameter log. Take your chain saw and rip it in half... more

Larry,
I am sorry that you had to make a few adjustments to work out the kinks in your log splitter. When it comes to speed it sure can split a lot of wood in an hour. Give us a call if you have any questions and we will be more than happy to help.

Good And Weak Points
Assembly went well and instructions were clear. When I started it up the motor would revert back to a fast idle regardless of throttle position. I kept thinking why didn't I get a Honda. After some time working on this new splitter engine I was ready to go.

Normal logs split with ease. The log lift looks cool but it is fairly worthless. It won't stay down to load and it's lever bar is in the way when you are splitting. I have now had to step over it 100 times and I've only run it a few... more

Philip,
Typically when using the log lift it is easier to remove the handle when it is not in use. That way it is out of your way and you don't have to step over it. Give us a call at 217-728-8388 if you have any questions of concerns.
