Yardmax 28t - Look Into These Guys!
Ok so its gonna be a long review but hang in there...I think it may help you make a decision on your purchase.
I research everything I buy. I want to get the best for my money just as I think everyone does. I originally was going to go to my local big chain store and buy a certain wood splitter I had my eye on cause it was going on sale for $950 bucks. And I'm glad I didn't! I came across this on Power Equipment Direct ... Started looking into their company and products and made two phone... more

Great Splitter
Easy to assemble. I would agree with instructions of two people. I did mine myself with the help of a front loader and cherry picker to align ram unit to running gear. Easy to do.

On first run split 26 in blocks of dry white oak with ease.
Pros: Durable, Price, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality

"Great working with Log Spitters Direct. Fast service and response time. Shipper not so good. They beat up the crate really good. looked like it was pushed around with the back of the forklift a few times. and stabbed with the forks once. With all the damage to crate was expecting lots of damage to the splitter. But there wasn't even a scratch on it. it was crated really good."

Awesome Log Splitter
The crate the splitter came in was impressive and protected the splitter. The directions were simple and well thought out which made assembly a breeze. I did assemble it with out any help which I do not recommend anyone else try. You have to stand the main beam up which is extremely heavy and one you do that you have to attach the base to it. If you bump the beam while it's in the vertical and it falls you could be in big trouble. This is the big reason you need help.

Other then that nerve... more

First Splitter I've Owned But Very Impressed
Everything is great thus far, went together very easy with a little muscle, have not found anything yet it can't handle. My only modification may be to put a little protection over the engine that I can pop on and off to start machine.
Pros: High Quality, Durable, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: engine guard needed

Excellent Splitter
Assembly was a little challenging by myself, but with 2 people as it recommends it's very simple.

Machine operates as it should - I've split twigs, I've split pieces I could barely lift up on to the splitter. Either way the thing splits no matter what. 4 way head makes the machine very efficient every pass.

I am a real person, and I am very satisfied with my purchase.
Pros: Exceeded Expectations, Price, Durable, Reliable
Cons: Heavy

"I was expecting to wait a week to get the splitter if not a week and a half. The thing showed up in like 3 days. I was very happy about that. Had it together that night, splitting the next day. Can't complain. I did put down a con being the thing is heavy - of course it's heavy, its a 28 ton splitter."

My headline says it all. Like the other review, delivery was less than a week, the shipping crate was good, the directions were easy (took a couple hours to put it together). So far, it has split everything I have put on it. The only issues I had were:

There was an extra washer on the wheel bearing that I didn't see, so when I put the one on that I was supposed to and tightened the nut, I couldn't get the pin in. I took it off and noticed the other washer under the grease, so I took the... more

So Far This Seems Like A Great Deal.
I am in California, and this splitter was delivered to me in about a week. I unloaded it with my tractor which saved $50. I put it together by myself in about an hour an took it right out and split about a cord of wood. It seems to have plenty of power. I was splitting really gnarly old oak logs that I had laying around because my old splitter wouldn't handle them.

It came with a removable 4 way wedge which you should remove when splitting this kind of wood. I really like the turn table on... more
