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

First Time Use
This is way too heavy for me to set up by myself. I am a 74 yr old with plenty of energy and strength for my age but I had trouble picking it up with my fork lift on my tractor. I am waiting for one of my son-in-laws to come help set it up for use.

Product is all I can ask for and I will use the heck out of it once it is set up. I will come back to update as soon as I get it up and working.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Heavy

Very Well Packaged And An Excellent Splitter!
I rarely leave a review unless I am really impressed. This review is based on many factors and began with the shipping. My splitter was shipped quickly and I received a tracking number. It was transferred a couple of times and I was contacted by the shipper and told it was being handed off to a company with smaller trucks due to my rural location. The whole time I was worrying about it being damaged in the shipping process. When it was delivered I was completely amazed at the packaging. ... more

Well Built And Powerful
I have used this splitter several times since buying it. It starts easily and has no trouble slicing through tough hickory. It seems to be well built and should last a long time. I managed to assemble it by myself, using a hoist and chains, though it is so heavy you really need to have someone help you.

Great Product For The Money
Great value for the money. Easy to assemble but as the instructions state, you need two people. I loved the fact it allowed the splitting of logs vertically. I owned another log splitter which I had for over 25 years, but it was horizontal. I had a lot of bog logs many over 24 inches in diameter. I have a 24" wood stove so when I buy log length wood I like to cut the logs to 22-24 inches. Being able to split a wide log to that length was a god send.
The splitter went through the wood... more

Quality, Innovative Log Splitter
This is a very good heavy duty splitter at a very reasonable priced. It has handled everything I have put on it. The customer service has been great with my 2 phone calls. The only concern I have is why didn't you put an adjustable tilting jack on the wood splitter. It is so hard to lift the jack and hold there while rotating it into the up locking position and trying to get the hitch centered and lowered on to the ball. For me it was a dangerous effort. I finally bought an adjustable lift... more

Cons: non adjustable tilting jack

Decent Splitter For Your Money.
Great running machine. Make sure you tighten the factory installed items...failure to do so CAN cause major injury. I had some bolts come loose on the slide and they snapped.

I was lucky that me and my son were not injured. Why they do not use nylon nuts, lock washers, OR thread lock is crazy. Other than that, I'm very pleased.
Pros: Price, High Quality, Durable, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Loose nuts

Very Efficient And Has Plenty Of Power
This is an excellent log splitter that was easy enough for two people to assemble. The videos available were very helpful. The 28 ton has enough power to split the wood we have, which is mostly hardwood, easily and effectively.

The one thing I would like to see in the future is a metal plate on a frame and engine cover or protector. I think this add-on would make the Yard Max unparalleled in its class! We love the splitter!
Pros: Price, High Quality, Durable, Easy To Use

Works Well. Surprised By The Power To Split Wood With Knots
After assembly, which took some manpower, the splitter looks and performs great. Was a little hard to get the motor started the first time, but has started much better after using it. Splits green and seasoned wood easily. The 4-way splitting attachment doesn't work as well as I expected.

The primary wedge has no problem, but separates the log to wide for the horizontal portion of the 4-way to get a good bite on the log. Will fabricate a shield that sits over the motor, so split pieces... more

Definitly An Investment
4 Notes: But definitely worth it.

1. When ordering, even if you spend the 50 dollars in shipment fee for a lift, expect a semi. Luckily I had a tractor with a front end loader to get the crate down my road. The semi driver who was awesome in helping me, said you have to ask for a panel truck when they call to set your delivery date.

2. It takes two people to lift the ram up vertical and configure the parts so you can bolt it together. I do have to say the instructions from crate to... more
