Very Satisfied Costumer.
I had a huge white oak fall down across my driveway..I blocked off about 10 pieces that were 3' in diameter way to big to split by hand ..I have been putting off buying a splitter for yrs. But now pushing 60 and arthritis in my shoulder I decided it was time.

After some research, I picked the dirty hands splitter. .I couldn't be happier it works Flawlessly went thru that oak like it was butter never had a problem ..the price was right and the quality is great..

Works Well, But Came With Defective Coupler
Like another couple of reviewers, the coupling between the engine and the hydraulic pump completely failed about 3 hours into operation. DHT said it was a known issue and they had a new batch of couplers. Replaced it yesterday, hopefully it hangs in there!

Other than that, it has worked as expected.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Features
Cons: Low Quality

Nice Little Machine
Delivery was great, assembly was easy only about an hour. Started up fairly easy the first time and very easy afterwards.

So far I have used it to split about 30 Oak logs about 14" diameter and 18" long. It worked just fine.

On the Knotty ones it would hesitate for a second and then split with no problem. No leaks so far. Very pleased with it and I would recommend to purchase one.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Fast, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: none

Omg!
Been splitting wood by hand for 30 years. Didn't want this big of a machine but now I wished I'd had it sooner. Doesn't matter what it's going through, it will split anything I've thrown at it so far. Tilting it up to the vertical was a huge advantage! Large rounds can be rolled over to it with no log lifting involved. It's a bit noisy but I LOVE IT!
Pros: Exceeded Expectations, Price, Features, Light Weight
Cons: Noisy

Packaging And Instructions Great
Assembly was a breeze. All parts fit perfectly some help was required to lift the splitting section because of the weight. I won't be able to use for a few weeks. The engine started on the second pull and the ram runs up and down smoothly.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

Great Product To Use, But One Product Defect.
The splitter came on time and the delivery was great. The packaging was very protective and the assembly was no real problem. The instructions are OK for the handy. I had a early failure (3 hours in use). The motor to hydro pump coupler completely sheered off. This was not due to hard use. I think the metal was dead soft and had never been case harden. No way soft steel would handle that kind of torque. I called Dirty Hands and the sent me a new coupler set no questions asked. I have seen this... more

Great Price Great Splitter
I split about 20 cord of wood in a couple of days after receiving this splitter. Based on reviews and price I bought the dirty hand 27ton splitter and can't be happier. Assembly was easy and straight forward. Could have done it alone but a set of extra hands added a level of safety. I was splitting cherry, locust and oak up to 17" diameter. The free shipping is a bit deceptive unless you have it shipped to a loading dock or have a forklift at home.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality

Happy With Performance
The splitter works very well and has split everything I have put through it easily. However I do not have anything bigger then 24inches around. I did have the same problem as another purchaser (the coupler between the engine and pump failed in the first 3 hours of operation) however they sent me a new one quite quickly, no questions asked and it was very easy to change. It has worked fine for the hour that I used it since. Overall the splitter seems to be well made, happy with for price I paid.
Pros: Exceeded Expectations, Price, Durable, easy to put together
Cons: Not happy it broke coupler in first 3 hours

It Looks Good Too!
To choose which log Splitter to buy I read the different "specs" on the Log Splitters Direct website. Two items really jumped out... this machine has an eight inch splitter, not a six inch like all the rest... And it out ways them all at 650lb. Plus its cycle time was one of the fastest. The Kohler motor is way better than I ever imagined.

My only reservation was no reviews... because they were brand new to the market.
I bought it because it sounded so good and was priced... more

A Mix
What you read from others is true. It comes superbly crated. It looks good. It is easy to put together (on a concrete slab so you can stand the ram up for final assembly). It comes with oil. Overall quite impressive for the money.

Mine arrived in less than a week! I had it shipped to a place of work so I could use a fork lift and avoid the extra shipping charge.

Before you put oil in it note that Teflon tape is missing from some hydraulic connections and be sure to take them apart and... more
