Does the job!!!

We bought the Craftsman 208CC OHV 27-Ton Log Splitter for my dad this past Christmas.  Most of the wood he splits is live oak cut in central Texas Hill Country and I was concerned that the splitter wouldn't be able to do the job because of the hardness of the wood.  This splitter did the job and then some.  We put a piece on the splitter with burl and it took care of it.  My dad's only complaint was that the engine isn't loud enough because now he'll be able to hear mom tell him how he should split the wood.  Seriously the engine is quiet, sounds like it is idling but it isn't.

Great splitter however not excellent due to 2 things:Hard to tilt and the logs push out and hit the right side fender when you are trying to split them. Otherwise works well and easy to use.

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.

Pros and Cons Review

Just purchased a "reconditioned" unit from a Sears Outlet in the Dallas-Ft Worth area. Pros - This 27 ton splitter will split just about anything! I split stump cuts that were nearly 36" in diameter, just had to reverse the stump for a second cut. Motor starts on first pull and runs quietly, does not lug much even on gnarly wood cuts in fresh wood. For this 72 year old, cutting in the vertical position is much better. Recycle time on ram is 10 seconds. Easy hookup for towing, comes with trailer jack and safety chains. Economical, can cut a cord of wood on a tank of gas, including those 36" stumps. For the price I paid at the outlet store you can not beat the value. Being at an outlet store my splitter was a little over $1k out the door, so defintiely priced right. Highly recommend. Cons- If you buy from an outlet store and it says "fully reconditioned" or "Floor Model" INSIST that it be started there at the store! I took it on faith that it was ready to go. It was full of gas, full of all oils, but tires were nearly flat. Got it home and it would not start. After about an hour of trouble shooting found it had a bad plug, replaced that and now works wonderfully. As stated, at 72 years old and 120 lbs. soaking wet, the ram cylendar is almost too heavy for me to lift to the vertical position. The ram could be more evenly centered for ease of lifting. It has a max towing speed of 45mph and if I got above that the whole thing tended to start vibrating. Also, check with your DMV for your state, here in Texas, since it has a gas tank on it and carries fuel, it has to be titled and tagged for towing, Should I have to take mine any distance, it will ride on the back of my utility trailer! There is a very small spike and couple of circle ridges on the base to hold a log, but they should be sharper. The spike is actually almost like a rounded tip instead of a spike, but with careful positioning I did not have problems with any of my logs. Safety is the key for the base, make sure your log is secure before applying full ram pressure to avoid a "popout". Would like to see this model with true 12" or 13" highway tires on it. Did not have manual with it, as a floor model, but they printed one off the net for me. Their specs online are deficient, no cycle time, no highway max speed, no tank capacities, etc. And, lastly, if you shop for one at an outlet store, know what you are looking at because no one at the outlet store had a clue about how to describe it, let alone how to start it! But, for my use, it has turned out to be a great value and would recommend it to anyone.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

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."

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!

I would recommend this product to a friend.
