Outstanding Splitter!
This cuts through hard to split green oak without missing a beat. The 5hp Briggs and Straton engine just runs at a steady pace no matter what you try to split. It has great fuel efficiency as well. It works well in both the horizontal and vertical positions. It tows easily as well. The 27 ton hydraulic system has all the power you need. Only opportunity I see is better assembly directions. You have to read a few times to make sense of them. Great machine though, especially for this price!

Needs redesigned
I purchased this log splitter about a month ago after doing extensive research on a lot of different brands. For the price to size comparison it was perfect. The problem that I found with this log splitter is that there are no spikes of any type in the base plate to hold the wood in place while its being split. I usually split 5-7 cords of wood per year so I have quite a bit of experience with splitting wood. I was a little disappointed when I realized there were no spikes because when I got the log splitter, I was very impressed with the look of it. The engine is fairly quiet, the reinforced hydraulic lines were reassuring. The exhaust doesn't blow in your face while splitting wood in the vertical position like the Husky log splitters do. Having the wood keep kicking out because there are no spikes to hold it in place got to be annoying after about an hour after using it. I'm currently debating on attempting to either drill holes in the baseplate and thread in spikes, weld spikes on, or just returning it. I'm a little uneasy about possibly having to alter a $1300.00+ log splitter. In my opinion, it needs to be redesigned and have spikes added to the base plate to hold the wood. 27 tons is quite a bit of pressure to assume that every piece of wood you're going to be trying to split is going to be perfectly flat in order to keep it from kicking out. The baseplate being a little bigger would be helpful also. It's almost like they got to the end of the log splitter and got tired of designing it and just said "that'll be good enough, let's move on to the next project."

much better than what we had

Bought this log splitter to replace one that was only horizontal and husband no longer able to lift large pieces of wood onto it. He loves the vertical position for the big ones! The first one that we picked up at the store would not start and he was upset, but Sears sent a repairman to our house and when he couldn't start it either, they replaced it with another one and it works great.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great machine

I got this home, put gas in it and split a cord of wood no problem. There was one large dead elm tree that slowed the splitter down but never stopped it. That's some tough wood and a tough machine to deal with it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

27 ton wood splitter

we have used it to split about 10 cords of wood and it is still going strong! I am surprised how well it works on large chunks of wood! some pieces are **** pieces that are very tight grain wood up to 2 foot in diameter!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good quality splitter at an excellent price

I did a lot of comparison shopping for log splitters before I purchased this unit. This unit received excellent reviews, and the sale price was excellent, considerably less than the competition. The unit is heavy duty, and performs the job as expected, even splitting 30" green pine rounds. The trailer is well build, and towing the unit is easy. I'll need a couple of seasons to determine how well built the unit is, but I am confident it will hold up over time. I have one complaint: The Sears store was supposed to assemble the unit so I could tow it home. I specifically asked them to be sure it was assembled and was told they would. When I went to pick up the unit, it was still crated. As the unit weights 500lbs in the crate, I was uncertain I could get it off my truck by myself. I decided to have them load it anyway, and had a plant to remove it from the crate on the truck and assemble it, before pulling it off the truck. Unfortunately, the loader loaded the unit backwards, making it impossible to assemble on the truck. I ended up having to call a friend for help offloading. If you intend to offload this unit, I highly recommend you have them load it so that you can assemble it on the truck, or have 3-4 people to help you.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Log Splitter

I had this item shipped to a sears near me. It came in about 3 weeks late but was worth the wait. At the store I hooked it up to the hitch on my truck and towed it home. It can not be seen while towing so I did not try backing up. I put gas in it and it started on the first pull. Splits wood with ease. Saves so much time. I will never split by hand again.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Works Just like it should

Put it together and was splitting wood in about an hour. I have used (borrowed from friends) a number of different splitters over the years. This one performs as well as or better than any I have used before.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

log splittter

checked numerous sites for price comparison, all sites where you can purchase a log splitter, and found this one to be the best price for the same size splitter . Have only used one time so far with very good results. As per instruction manual the gas is recommende to be shut off during travel which I failed to do. As a result it did not start easily when I got to my fire wood. Shut off gas on way home and it started fine there. So far so good.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
