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

Not A Great Experience - Good Customer Service
My wood splitter arrived with a grouchy trucker that handled the crate badly and it looked like it was damaged. When I opened the crate, the parts seemed to be in good shape except for a few dents on the engine gas tank and muffler housing. After assembly, the engine would not stop surging (hunting) and would eventually stop.

After $190 at the small engine repair shop, I was on my way to splitting wood - so I thought. Started the engine, put a log on, and before I got halfway through the... 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

Amazing Machine
We live in the country and are constantly having to deal with downed trees. After years of watching my now 66 year old husband split logs by hand, I decided to give him the gift of time and bought him the DHT 22 ton log splitter for Valentine's Day. It works like a charm, but here are a few comments that might be helpful for others.

1) Getting it: As everyone says, it's heavy. We have a very long driveway, which is impossible for a tractor trailer to navigate. They no longer use small box... more

Dht Has Great Customer Service!
Bought the 22-ton DHT at Lowe's, looked at the display splitters sitting outside and they looked weathered and rusted, so I asked for one unassembled in the crate. drove an hour home and removed the top of the crate and it had rust and corrosion on it! Called Lowe's and they said bring it back, its an hour back not gonna happen.

So I called DHT and told them what I found and the very nice lady Kat said that was a problem with Lowe's because they store the crates outside and that humidity... more

Quality Splitter
I bought this splitter, had 20 cords of oak delivered, and went through some very big stuff with no problem. I would absolutely buy another, but probably wont need to for 20 years. The only complaint I have is it's very hard to start in the winter. The engine doesn't "freely" spin over if the temp is the least bit cold. Maybe I should go to a 10w oil or even synthetic oil.
Pros: Price, High Quality, Durable, Fast
Cons: Bad Cold Starting

Legit Log Splitter!
The splitter was delivered about a month ago and I've used it several times. It arrived in a well-packed crate, which was impressive all by itself. I assembled without assistance in two hours. Directions were easy to follow.

The unit seems very sturdy and the Kohler engine has handled everything I've put it, and I've gone through some very gnarly stuff. This thing will be a nice addition to my garage for many years to come. Great purchase!

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!

Great Tool!
I've been shopping for years for a log splitter and when it came time to purchase I was pretty knowledgeable about most of them. I was surprised to find so many models out there that looked very poorly built. This one is not one of those. Very sturdy construction. Packaging is good and set up was very quick and easy. I was using it within 30 minutes of unpacking. The price is very competitive and free shipping a bonus!
Pros: Easy To Use, Durable, High Quality, Fast
