Ramsplitter-- Quality Can Take Time, So Be Patient
Ramsplitter builds every one of their log splitters in Rockford, IL. While these units are manufactured in America by U.S. labor, the manufacturing process is very manual and time-consuming, and as a result, it’s not unusual for a Ramsplitter brand log splitter to take as long as 6 to 8 weeks to ship to you from the time you order. There is no denying the unit you receive will be a top-quality product made by American workers. Just be prepared to wait for your unit to actually show up at your... more

Bad Valve
I took delivery of the unit last year and when I tried to use it my tractor stalled. Thinking that my Ford 9N was running at low power, I checked the timing and wires etc. and improved it's output. Sometimes the splitter worked great and other times it would continue to stall the engine with a large spasm of the hoses. I took the valve to a hydraulic repair firm that is nearby and they disassembled the valve. The relief/pressure regulating section was gauging and scored badly. The ball was... more

It took two weeks to arrive and the shipper wanted to charge me for a delivery to a different location or even if I picked it up at the local shipping office.

The splitter works fine and tackled some very big old knotty wood. It is fast and well designed.

I would suggest that the splitter come with a diagram on how to hook up the plumbing. I had no trouble but a lot of head scratching.

It would be good if there were a default on each end of the stroke. If you don't let go of the... more

Performs As Advertised!
I had someone connect the log splitter to my tractor so I can't comment on any hookup issues, but the man who did it for me had no problems that I know of. As far as usage, it's very easy to use. I don't have to do anything but idle my tractor so the gas used is minimal. I guess if I had a helper, I would go faster. I love the vertical /horizontal option. It's very quick and easy to go from vertical to horizontal and back again. I also love that there is zero maintenance.

Very Capable.........
After installing all couplers and hoses and getting the pto delivered separately, filling the reservoir with a bit over 7 gallons of transmission fluid, I connected the pto pump to rear pto on JD 4100 and started engine.

With pto engaged the fluid pressurized the hoses and was ready for work. The three-point allows the height of the splitter to be adjusted based on your needs.

Splitter functioned as expected with no hesitation on all logs, maple, basswood, black locust and willow. more

Initial Hurdles
I have purchased several pieces of equipment over the years, but I have never had one come without an instruction manual for operating and maintenance. My 3-pt hitch, PTO driven unit came with a manual, but it was for the self-contained, motor driven unit.

It would have been helpful to know how long the PTO shaft would have to be in order to mount the pump (I had to purchase an extension.). It would have been helpful to have a diagram for installing the hoses. It would have been helpful... more

Ramsplitter 20 Ton Hor/vert 3pt
I am pleased with the device, but as I said above, I was disappointed in the color (not the one ordered). And, the shipping company gave a window of 1-4 PM on a specific day, but did NOT come then, and it was difficult to reach the shipper. They did come, but 1 1/4 hours after the end of the window. The unit came with instructions primarily written for a gas powered stand alone unit, not a 3 PT unit that I ordered. I had read a review with the same complaint, but that was dated long ago,... more
Pros: Durable, Features
Cons: Bad Instructions, I Ordered Kubota Orange And Got Black Delivered

It's A Good Thing I Used To Race Stock Cars
My three point vert/horizontal log splitter came with some poorly designed/ fabricated pins to lock it either the vertical or horizontal positions. It came with pins too long that slide through round tubing with weak springs and roll pins through the pins. The roll pins break, rendering the springs useless.

Then the pins don't even line up with the holes they are supposed to lock into. I was driving across a field with the log splitter in the vertical position, hit some bumps rocking the... more
Cons: Low Quality, Difficult To Use, Unreliable, Bad Instructions
