Q: Can I buy a 4 way wedge for it?
by Will Russell from Massachusetts on August 19, 2014

A: Will - sorry, but Ariens does not currently offer a 4-way wedge for any of their log splitter models. I've heard they have something in the works, but as of now, there is not a 4-way wedge available that will fit up to this model.

Q: Does this item require assembly after delivery
by Debbie from North Carolina on December 07, 2013

A: Thanks for your inquiry.

Yes, this item will require some assembly. There is not much to put together and shouldn't take you longer than about 30-45 minutes to set up and get going. Uncrating the unit, checking all fluids, attaching the tow bar, and hooking up the hydraulic lines and that's about it. Anymore questions, feel free to ask.

Thanks and have a great day!

Q: where is the oil drain plug located and is it hard to get to on the areins 22 ton splitter
by Robert from Oklahoma on December 07, 2013

A: Thanks for your inquiry.

This model is equipped with a 4.5HP/174cc Subaru EA175V 4-Cycle Overhead Cam Engine. The oil drain is located below the exhaust in the picture. It is very accessible when its time to change the oil. Anymore questions, feel free to ask.

Thanks and have a great day!

Whether your splitting tough hard wood or seasoned softer wood, the Ariens 22-Ton 917011 packs a punch. Providing ease of use and power, this splitter will make short work of just about any pile of wood.

Equipped with a 4.5HP/174cc Subaru overhead cam engine, there is plenty of power to get the job done with power to spare. The cast iron cylinder sleeve offers durability for years to come.

The Ariens 917011 offers centrally-located controls and an open operating zone which allows for... more

Impressive Ariens Horizontal/vertical 22 Ton Log Splitter
When I received the Ariens Model 917011 22 Ton Horizontal/Vertical Log Splitter I was impressed with the design and operation. I did install Loctite 242 Threadlocker on most of the cap screws and nuts because of the vibration and flexing of some parts of the machine during normal operation just to be safe. It did come with a correct amount of hydraulic fluid in the reservoir and motor oil in the engine. After installation and tightening all cap screws I added a full tank of gas. The Subaru... more

"Low cost with payment by check. Originally I received information they had the Ariens Model 917011 Log Splitter on back order and would be shipped in late August 2014. Then a few days later I received an e-mail stating the log splitter has shipped. It arrived fairly quickly by the freight carrier. The only part of the shipment I was not happy about was the $50.00 lift gate fee. Very few delivery freight trucks that I have used did not have a lift gate and that was generally because of items under 60 lbs. Otherwise I was happy receiving the shipment earlier than what the 1st notification of a backorder that I received."

Second Year Review
Any new log splitter will be great but what about after two years of use and about 15 chords processed?

This is a fine machine but unfortunately has a number of significant design flaws.

Most notably is where / how the hydraulic control valve is mounted on top of the piston. Use of the splitter requires constant movement of the control lever which is precariously mounted by way of a soft steel threaded pipe connector. Repetitive movement quickly loosens, gets sloppy and subsequently... more

If You're Looking For A Lot Splitter I Strongly Recommend Ariens
I recently purchased an Ariens 22 ton log splitter and can honestly tell any one who reads this review to look no further. Ariens sells high quality machinery at an affordable price.

They delivered promptly and everything was in order and installation was very easy.

I love the time it saves and most importantly just how much better I feel because of less stress on my back. Thank you Ariens!

A Workaholic!
First log splitter after splitting wood by hand for 25 years. This is a beast. It cuts through all types of wood like butter. I have ash, cherry and no problem. The engine starts on the first pull every time. Just check the hydraulic fluid after each splitting session.

Very fast return and it's nice with the auto return for when working by yourself. Very smooth operation. The quality of this unit is far the best of many that I looked at. Best purchase ever!

Great Value!
After years of hand splitting I finally decided that I needed to replace my splitting maul. I searched on-line and did a little looking at my local big box stores. After reading the reviews on this splitter I decided to risk an on-line purchase. I ordered it on a Saturday afternoon and it arrived at my door step on Tuesday morning.

After less than an hour of assembly I fired it up after a few pulls and tried it on a stack of very knotty pine that I had been unable to split by hand. Like a... more

Solid Machine
Very pleased with the performance of the Ariens log splitter. At the age of 64, I have split and stacked over a cord of wood. This machine has not shown any sign that I presented it with something it could not handle. I have split wood of and own for over thirty years and very pleased with my Ariens.

For those who wrote about assembly issues in putting machine together, not so at all. My biggest problem was getting it out of the crate that it was shipped in, which frankly really pleased... more

Works Great After New Engine
Set up my splitter. Started the engine and something did not seem right. Ran so fast I thought it might throw a rod. Used until the muffler fell off because it vibrated so bad a mounting bolt snapped off. Took to a local dealer and they wound up replacing the engine.

Now it runs and works great! Not sure what the problem was but my guess is the engine did not have a governor installed. I couldn't be more please with it now, even thought it was kind of a disappointing start.

One Of The Best Decisions I've Ever Made
Delivery was prompt. Driver was a very nice fellow. Unpacked, followed directions, fueled splitter, and started first time on 3 pulls.
The power of this machine is fearsome. It will cut right through a log laid cross-wise on the beam, if you wished to. I am not kidding.
This thing is a certified bad-ass.

Pay attention to the instructions, both safety and operating. Do not operate this machine unless you have a stable, dry and level patch of ground beneath you. Ignore this advice at your... more

"Well designed, well built, more power than Led Zeppelin, if that is possible. Easily put together. Respect this machine for the power it generates, for it has more than you'll probably ever need. I heat a 2 story 150 year-old farmhouse, so I need to split a whole lot of wood. Primary heat source. This was one of the best major purchases I have ever made. I could not be happier with this splitter. Subaru motor fires up on one pull. Be polite to your friends when they express an interest in borrowing it, just smile and tell them to go to hell."

22-ton Log Splitter
It is a nice log splitter. On the plus side I like the ease of deploying the stand when you disconnect from your side by side. It is also very balanced with the ram fully extended.

One thing you have to be careful of is, if a log is too heavy the splitter will tip. I plan to make a leg that I can attach to the opposite end of the hitch so this doesn't happen again.
