Q: Does it have a 2 stage hydraulic pump
by Joe Farrea from Rhode Island on September 16, 2014

A: Joe - yes, the Ariens 917011 22 ton log splitter has a 2-stage, 11 GPM hydraulic pump
by Bob, Product Expert
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."

Put A Little Fun In Your Work
First off, we are nearing our 75th birthday. And we got everything together very easy with the instructions, and after reading instructions, we, myself and wife split over a cord of wood in less than a hour. And as hard as this work is, WE were not even tired, in fact enjoyed and had fun.. Recommend this splitter to any AGE....

Breezes Through Seasoned Oak....
The Ariens 22 ton Log Splitter breezes through seasoned oak. I split some large diameter logs, and as long as the blade is on the grain, the splitter is superb. I broke it in with three cords of seasoned oak, and it performed flawlessly.

It is light enough to move around by hand, and is safe and easy to use. The Subaru engine starts right up. I did use Locktite on the assembly nuts, and purchased five gallons of hydraulic oil, you should too.

After splitting two cords of oak, the oil... more

Well Spent Money
I owned a hydraulic splitter in the 1980s, it was uncomfortable to use and I would rather split with an axe. At 74 I thought I may try again. I checked out a few and this looked like the best design. I was surprised at how easy it was to assemble and the excellent design and quality of this machine. It is high enough that you don't have to break your back if you are splitting for a couple of hours and powerful enough to split large knotty cuts of Oak and Hickory also the rack eliminates the... more

The Subaru Engine Never Skips A Beat
We've put it through this season, splitting about 16 cords. It never missed a beat on our native Cottonwood and Pine. I'm sure it would perform well on Oak also. (If we had any here in Northern WY.)
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Reliable

Powerhouse With Speed
Picked up my Ariens 22 ton log splitter at my local HD on a pallet. Got it home, about 45 minutes to assemble. Checked the fluids about 3 quarts low on Hydraulic oil. Added oil.

Started right up! I let it warm up, took a few minutes for it to run smoothly. Ran the ram in an a few times. Split a cord of seasoned oak and madrone in no time.

Very fast cycle time. Makes log splitting fun! Very easy to move around by hand. I ordered fenders and put them on. Great looking and awesome... more

Retiree Saving A Lot Of Back-breaking Work.
I've always enjoyed splitting wood with a maul. I actually thought it was fun. But now, as an old guy with back problems, I thought it was time to buy a splitter. The 22-ton Ariens splitter fits my needs perfectly.

Not only does it split through up to 24-inch diameter oak logs (maybe more), but it's also compact. At only 36 inches wide, and in the vertical position about 80 inches from end of trailer tongue to the end of the hydraulic control handle, it's easily stored.

Logsplitter Receipt/assembly/use
I received from trucker who off-loaded from truck to driveway. Hardest part from that point was getting it out of the wooden crate/packing material.

Good secure shipping material. Assembly was relatively easy, good directions. Fired it up and it works great. Already split one oak tree. Great product so far. Will recommend you to all of my friends and family.

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

Ariens Wood Splitter
When I received my log splitter, the pallet it was shipped on was toast. This made it difficult for one person to assemble. That being said, I just finished splitting three cord's of Oak and Eucalyptus wood. This machine was worth every penny. Even tough knotty type pieces were split with ease. Thank you for the deal.

Great Machine
Splitter was easy to assemble. Although it came without any extra hydraulic fluid. It is still a good buy, I've used it successfully with no problems except it doesn't like real cold weather. But I would recommend it to anybody who is looking for a splitter.
