Power Equipment Direct Recommended

Designed and engineered in Colorado, the Dirty Hand Tools 100171 22-ton gas log splitter is designed to make tough jobs easier.

Powered by a 196cc Kohler SH265 engine that produces 6.5HP, the Dirty Hand Tools 100171 delivers plenty of power and let's you split wood in both vertical and horizontal positions. This model has an 11 second cycle time (pretty quick compared to other splitters in this category). I also like the auto return and adjustable detent.

Such An Amazing Log Splitter!
Bought this log splitter almost 1 year ago, decided to wait awhile before writing a review to see how it performed. Couldn't be more happy!

Delivery came in a small box truck that was able to maneuver down my small private street. And unloading was fairly simple, my driveway is a bit steep near the street so it was a heavy haul up the hill. It came in a very sturdy crate, well packaged and easy to assemble. The steel beam is the heaviest part but thankfully, you only have to stand it up... more

Will Not Recommend
Has been hard to start since day one. Stored exactly the way it is recommended and after about 4 hours run time had to have the carb rebuilt. Always run it with mid grade octane. Muffler cover screws vibrated out during 2nd use. Had to tighten main hydraulic hose during first run.
Pros: Light Weight, Easy To Store
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, Durability, Hard to start

Wish Wood Cutting Was As Easy As The Purchase
Everything with my purchase from Log Splitters Direct went better than expected. Sent in the check and the splitter arrived. Simple as that. The only problem we had was getting the semi truck turned around. (see picture) I was expecting a small box truck. The driver did a great job in the little space he had. He was very pleasant and gladly waited while we inspected the crate. Nothing was out of place. My wife and I had it assembled in a little over a hour. ( We had a few ice teas it... more

My First Log Splitter
After a long wait (not used to freight shipping), a crate arrived in my driveway. After careful dismantling, I found a fairly well packaged unit that needed some assembly, but no instructions to be found. A quick search on youtube helped me assemble it fairly quickly, and my mechanical background helped the process along. For the most part I was able to assemble it myself, with my wife helping lift the main beam onto the frame. After tightening down all the bolts, I added 5 gallons of... more

Warranty Info
Just wrote a review about my registration card that was returned stating insufficient address and not forwardable. Found on card a web site to register online. I tried to online with no success. There is a phone number but closed on weekends. I'll try Monday by phone and see if I get a live person.
Pros: Price, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable
Cons: Lots of rattling. Noisey.

Charles,
The online warranty registration looked OK to me, but be sure to use the little Up/Down arrows to start the Serial Number entry. You can also reach the folks at Dirty Hand Tools at 877-487-8275. Please have the serial number of your unit handy when you call in case they ask for it.

The Factory Warranty covers your unit from the day it's delivered, whether you register the warranty or not.

So Far - So Good
Contrary to other ratings, was extremely easy to put together (I am 78) alone. Excellent directions, to about 4 1/2 hours from uncrating to start it up. Have split about a cord of mostly rock maple, tray on side is wonderful advantage, easy to go horizontal to vertical.
Pros: Price, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations

Off To A Frustrating Start!
When the log splitter arrived, the delivery person said we could not open the crate to inspect for damage. We had to get his supervisor on the phone and get "permission" even though there was big lettering on the top of the box "inspect this product on delivery". although we had done a lot of research on assembling the product, the amount of time stated that it would take was far less hours than it took. there were no instructions for the log catcher. once it was finally... more

Great Product, Great Price
Was surprisingly easy to assemble, I did it myself in about two hours. By the way no I am not some spry kid. I am a male in my 60's, so anyone with a little common sense and a bit of mechanical aptitude should have no problem. Starts very easily and runs like a champ. Far as I can tell so far this is a very well built product and should last long with proper care and handling.

Great Splitter Minor Complaints
Main complaint was inability to read the dipstick for the hydraulic fluid. Finally taped paper around stick to get a reading. Also, had overflow problems with both oil & hydraulic fluids obviously, there were some fluids in both reservoirs. Had to siphon out quite a bit of hydraulic fluid. Not too thrilled with the jack assembly, this beast is too heavy & needs a crank type jack. Other than that, I am pleased with the splitter.
Pros: Price, High Quality, Fast, Durable
Cons: Heavy, Unreadable dip stick for hydraulic fluid, Bad jackstand choice
