Another Great Craftsman Product
I purchased my log splitter in February. This machine is well built and has more than enough power. I have used it a total of 5 hours and it can bust through 32 inch oak and hedge with no hesitation. One thing I like is how well this machine is built. Typical of any Craftsman product, This machine is built to last decades. The Briggs and Stratton engine is very quiet even when it its under a load . I am used to an older log splitter that will rattle your brain due to noise and vibration so this machine is a welcome change. This machine is well balanced so you can move it around your garage with ease. It is a real benefit to being able to split wood horizontally or vertically. This machine allows both. It would be a benefit to have an hour meter on this product simply for routine maintenance identification. Keep up the good work Craftsman!! You hit a home run with this one..

waste of time and money.

Ive had 2 of these splitters and both of them leaked like a sieve right out of the package. The fact that I need a tub of hydrulic fluid per cord didnt seem profitible. It probly would have been a good machine even though its probly assembled by a pack of wild monkeys.

Craftsman log splitter

A-1 logsplitter! An easy starting fine machine. Easy to use, easy to tow. The capability and ease of switching from horizontal to verticle is very helpful. It has easy access to the lever which allows easy single man operation and a quick end to the job. P.S. Its really fast when my wife runs the lever!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman 6.75 Briggs & Stratton log splitter

Works good.  I do not like how easy the fenders break.  They are made flimsy.  The side catchers that stop the wood from falling, break real easy as well.  Overall I'm pretty happy with my purchase.

Saves you time and money, and effort.

I purchased the 27 ton log splitter for a couple of reasons. First being I soley heat my home with wood. Second reason is to save time. The 27 ton Craftsman model had a few plus's to go along with it. Sears did not charge shipping costs. It was turn key in the sense the fluids were included. Then the fact it was on sale, saving me over $300 hundred less then the other model I was looking at. After looking at several differen't log splitters for a year. My choice boiled down to this one. The "power" of the unit was shown on the first use. Red Oak rounds I split are over 24" in diamitter. The wedge hit the log and paused for one second then the secondary on the pump kicked in. The sweet sound of splitting wood echoed in my backyard. Used it for over an hour to get the feel of operation the machine has. Before I knew it there was more then a half a cord of split wood to stack. Really like the auto return feature. It saves time has you get the next log. The only couple of cons are the gas tank, also the trailer pin to secure the stand leg. So far my new log splitter is showing NO signs of leaking any fluids. Starts on the first pull. It's quiet not disturbing my neighbors. The manual stated with proper up keep and checking the fluid regularly. The 27 ton log splitter will earn its keep for over seven years before a major overhual may be in the cards? Only time will tell if this will be the case. So far I am totaly happy with the purchase. It sure beats a splitting maul and a wedge.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Easy enough for a girl to use!!!!

I purchased this splitter because our property is covered with timber.  My honey made sure everything was set correctly and initially had it set up in the vertical position.  Good for him uncomfortable for me.  He used the chainsaw and I used the splitter.  Works perfectly.  No leaks, no troubles no issues.  Pull start is a cinch and in the horizontal position I could split wood all day.  Meterman came by and wanted to know what it would take to get his Mrs. to help.....I told him to have her buy this splitter.  Thank you Sears and Craftsman.....we will get years of use I am sure. 

I would recommend this product to a friend.

always the man doing all the work

my wife like to buy things and bought this when we were redoing our yard. I think it is a bit expensive and unless you use it often, i would probably not have boughten this. It would be more practical to rent it or if you have a few jobs, just hire someone to do it. it is really powerful though and is fairly easy to use for the handymen out there.

Great deal!

I have been watching splitter prices for almost a year now.  I was real close to buying one from the competition when Sears had a sale.  The Sears splitter beat the competition in the following areas:  overall price, tonnage, free shipping (almost a $200 savings), free assembly (time savings), fluids included (about a $50 savings).  Finally, I saved an extra 10% by using my Sears card.  My final price is a terrific value.

The splitter starts first pull, every time.  It splits anything I put on it.  The side racks are a big help in keeping split logs from falling to the ground.  I like that the hydraulic hoses are wrapped for abrasion protection.

I would prefer the splitter to be about 12" higher in the horizontal position.  I'm 6'5" and have to bend over slightly during operation.  After a while it takes a toll on my back.

I agree with others that the fuel tank could be bigger.  I too am also a bit concerned about the pump being mounted so low because I'll be pulling the splitter into the woods with an ATV.  I may manufacture a guard to protect it.

Overall, this machine is an excellent value.  I was prepared to assemble it like the owners manual indicated you had to do but was pleasantly surprised when the Sears associate brought out a fully assembled splitter.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman 27 ton Log Splitter

This is a great log splitter.  Starts easy and goes until it runs out of gas. A larger tank would be nice...  I have been splitting red oak with it and I am impressed by its performance. In the past I would rent a splitter and the rush to get it back in time. Now I can take my time and do it right. The stand can be a pain.  It should have a quick way to release it and then lock it back into position. No big deal though.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
