Log Splitter Is Awesome
Love the splitter . I have split over 100 cords of wood in the last 3 years. I have a tree service and we sell the wood. I would recommend the company put a guard over the motor. Logs will come apart and land on it. The most dangerous part is the fire hazard from all the debris that lands on the muffler.

Mine always starts 1st or second pull no matter the temp outside and has only failed to split logs a hand full of times. Overall I can't complain . The Kohler engine has been great. I didn't... more
Pros: Durable, Fast, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

Great Product
I ordered this splitter a few weeks ago after thoroughly reviewing all the models offered here on LSD and I couldn't be happier.

I really don't know why this splitter is not on the sites recommended list, the EXACT same splitter is their #1 pick and the only difference is engines. As far as features and value, this was an obvious choice to me. You can't beat a Kohler engine, and the same splitter is not worth an extra $500.00 just because it has a Honda.

This splitter comes with all the... more

Oregon Splitter
Arrived on time with a tailgate truck making delivery easy. Easy to assemble, works great. Only problem is hydraulic leak coming out of hydraulic fluid tank. Tightened fitting a little at a time to no avail. Problem looks like manufacturer did not apply pipe tape or dope to fitting. I will have to drain fluid, remove fitting, apply teflon tape to fitting and reassemble. Hope that does it.

This Catcher is great when you are splitting wood alone!!!
No more picking up each piece that falls on the ground.
On the splitter itself, I added a caster wheel on the bottom of the jack stand.
Makes moving around the driveway so simple.

One Thing After Another.
The Splitter arrived in a crate which was in good shape. The splitter appeared to be in good shape, no scratches or anything. After assembling and following all instructions for the engine it would not start and each attempt would cause gas to leak out of the engine. Oregon directed me to the nearest dealer who after looking at the splitter also found an oil leak around one of the fittings that was damaged. It has been two weeks since I assembled the splitter and I still have not been able... more

Warranty Repair Right Out Of The Box.
The splitter was delivered promptly (about a week after placing the order). Inspection showed no evidence of shipping damage. Assembly was straight forward. The instructions are very clearly written. I did invite a neighbor to help me mount the beam to the carriage. Solo assembly at that step would be risky. After filling hydraulic oil tank and engine crankcase filled fuel tank. Shortly after opening the fuel shutoff valve gas started dripping from the carburetor. Removing the air filter... more

Will Not Run...haven't Got To Use.
I recently purchased this log splitter for my husband. I ordered the first part of April. We received middle of the month. No damage to the shipment. Accepted package, put it together filled with the gas and oil as directed. Would not start. Finally started and ran about 20 smokey seconds. My husband looked to see if oil was overfilled, when he unscrewed cap, GASOLINE came out of oil sight!!!! Something BAD wrong. Since the equipment can NOT be returned, we had to tow 30 miles to a... more

Awesome At The Cabin
We have a large amount of dead trees around our cabin that will take several years to cut up.

We bought the splitter so that we would save time and energy. We tested it out on some wood that we had at home in our wood piles.

We split up about a cord of wood in a couple of hours. This is going to be awesome to work with this summer on at the cabin.
