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."

Worth Every Dollar.
I saved the $50.00 lift gate fee by using forks on my big Kubota tractor. I had to call a friend to help me with assembly. It was more his coaching and allowing me to do the work, which was fine.

After starting and running the motor a bit the hydraulic tank took at least another gallon of hydraulic fluid to fill it up.

On the third day of use the log splitter wouldn't start. I called my friend he said to check the hydraulic system. The forward and reverse lever was in the reverse... more

Be Careful On The Tough Logs!
I bought the 22 ton and split about 1/2 cord before I broke the machine. I sunk the wedge into a very tough piece of Oak (very knotty section). Wedge stuck, wood would not split, attempted to retract the wedge. When the wood hit the side eject bars, the engine strained, then the coupling from the wedge to the hydraulic ram broke into pieces. (operator error? perhaps...but I would think the wedge connection should be engineered to withstand the forces that the system can place upon it).

Glad I Waited
I was going to buy a log splitter from our local Lowe's. This particular one has a Honda engine and I know the performance of a Honda product is highly rated. However, my wife got on the internet and found the Ariens with a Subaru motor. I am so glad I waited and got the Ariens. It splits wood like a knife cutting thru butter. I can do a truck load of wood (huge logs , too) in less than an hour. And, the folks we ordered from are super to deal with. They will answer all your questions and... more

Ariens 22 Ton Log Splitter
I go through only 3-4 cords of firewood per year, all Fir and Maple, which we have on our own property. I have been using an electric 6 ton splitter but it struggles on “wet” wood and is cumbersome to use even with two people.

The Ariens 22 ton splitter works like a champ. It took me less than an hour to set it up, from in the protective crate and did add about a gallon of hydraulic fluid. I had no problems with the shipper. I have only split about two cords so far and have used the splitter... more

Great Splitter!
I shopped around and found that the 22 ton would be the best for me. I get Fir and Larch at about 14 inches in length. Just used my new splitter today. Outstanding! I should have bought one years ago. Oregon makes a great splitter, but was about 2 feet longer than this one. 22 ton as well. They wanted about 300.00 bucks more. I bought my Ariens at Home Depot. Storage space in my shed is my problem. That's why I went with the Ariens. Once standing upright it will take less room in my shed. I... more

Happy Hubby
Got tired of rubbing stinky ointments on hubby's aching shoulders from wielding his monster maul every fall. Went on line, and ordered his Ariens as a surprise. Best word for his new toy is "WOW." He only cursed three times during assembly (really big deal) and his smiles told me that I chose wisely. To all those wives out there, if your sweet hubby has to chop wood, consider surprising him with this neat toy. Doesn't he deserve it???

Best Buy Ever..
My husband and I burn wood in the winter months, and he always split wood by hand. Well not that he's old but we're both getting on in years so I thought it's about time he made it a little easier on himself, so I talked him into buying the log splitter, and he's very happy he did..
