Log Splitters Direct Recommended

Designed and engineered in Colorado, the Dirty Hand Tools 100171 22-ton gas log splitter is designed to make tough jobs easier.

Powered by a 196cc Kohler SH265 engine that produces 6.5HP, the Dirty Hand Tools 100171 delivers plenty of power and let's you split wood in both vertical and horizontal positions. This model has an 11 second cycle time (pretty quick compared to other splitters in this category). I also like the auto return and adjustable detent.

Such An Amazing Log Splitter!
Bought this log splitter almost 1 year ago, decided to wait awhile before writing a review to see how it performed. Couldn't be more happy!

Delivery came in a small box truck that was able to maneuver down my small private street. And unloading was fairly simple, my driveway is a bit steep near the street so it was a heavy haul up the hill. It came in a very sturdy crate, well packaged and easy to assemble. The steel beam is the heaviest part but thankfully, you only have to stand it up... more

Wish Wood Cutting Was As Easy As The Purchase
Everything with my purchase from Log Splitters Direct went better than expected. Sent in the check and the splitter arrived. Simple as that. The only problem we had was getting the semi truck turned around. (see picture) I was expecting a small box truck. The driver did a great job in the little space he had. He was very pleasant and gladly waited while we inspected the crate. Nothing was out of place. My wife and I had it assembled in a little over a hour. ( We had a few ice teas it... more

Works Great! Fast Cycles For Quick Production.
I have owned the splitter for 3 weeks and have split 4 cords of seasoned Pine. The machine is fast and more than adequate power for seasoned Pine, if splitting larger green logs I would consider higher rated machine. We ran a couple of days side-by-side with other splitters and our production was around a third more split wood. Very satisfied with the quality and design of the splitter but would suggest Dirty Hands consider these design changes:

1) The plastic owners manual tube lasted... more

Why Pay Double?
This splitter is well built and as good or better than those costing two to three times more. And very fast!

Great Machine
I'm very pleased with my new splitter. Biggest hassle was getting a 640 pound crate out of the back of a tractor trailer and into my barn. Over came that with my tractor and bucket loader.

Working alone it took about 1 1/2 hours to un-crate and assemble. Instructions were very clear and all parts fit perfect. Hardest part was standing the rail/ram section on end by myself, very heavy.

So far I have only used it about a hour but I did more in that time than I could do with my maul in 2-3... more

Great Splitter So Far, Only One Regret.
I have been using a tractor mounted, shop-built, log splitter for years...but not owning my own tractor limited my usage. I finally decided to purchase a self-contained unit and spent a couple weeks researching. I decided on the Dirty Hand Tools splitter versus Huskee/TSC because of good reviews, construction, and design.

I attempted to view one in person at Lowe's, but the sales person thought they only rented them...

Very Powerful, Very Fast
Overall, for the price point, I am really impressed. I would have liked to purchase a more recent model with catcher.

Sales staff and management at Lowes knew almost nothing. Shorted me over 1 gal of hydraulic fluid.

Looking for a 4-way head--i'm sure it will have enough power--this thing is a monster with faster cycle time than my buddy's commercial one.
Pros: Price, Durable, Fast, Very Fast Cycle Time
Cons: Hydraulic Fluid 1 Gal Low, Sales Person Knew Nothing, Lowes Does Not Stock Accessories

I Like The Splitter
I like the splitter a lot and the shipping was 10 days. But the carrier drove on my lawn, broke some branches off of a very nice tree and just dumped the splitter on my driveway. The guy was rude!

Wrist Saver
Been splitting wood for over 40 years by hand. Lately the big rounds have been raising hell with my wrists and hands. Now that I have had a couple of weeks to work with the Dirty Hands Splitter, I have a good system worked out. Brought it to a friends property which just recently had been logged off, leaving a mess.

We split a bunch of the butt cuts and other odds and ends with no problems. People have been coming over and are appreciating the difference it makes. So far, worth every... more

Great Product
Recently purchased this splitter to spit hard wood that I cut from my property. Most of the trees I cut are not giant, the rounds are never much more than 2 feet, and I do 18 inch for length. The wood is hard maple, birch, cherry, ash. I have yet to put a piece through the splitter that it could not handle. I have split both dry wood, and very, very green. Every piece, no problem.

It was delivered to my house one day ahead of schedule, and it was put together with 2 friends in about... more
