Log Splitters Direct Recommended

The Dirty Hand Tools 100342 is powered by an easy-starting Kohler 9.5HP 4-cycle engine that powers the 2 stage, 17.5 gpm pump, generating 3400psi of splitting force. Logs up to 25" long are no problem. And the 10.5-second cycle time makes it one of the fastest hydraulic splitters in its class.

The Dirty Hand Tools 100342 is designed for easy transition between horizontal and vertical configurations. The horizontal mode is easiest for most splitting tasks. But when you come across an... more

Great Log Splitter!
Assembly was per instructions. Operated for approximately 40 minutes and changed oil. The low oil shutoff switch works great! Be sure that the unit is level when replacing oil or checking oil.

The log splitter is easy to operate, starts with ease, and does every thing you would expect for quality equipment. I highly recommend this log splitter if you do a lot of splitting.

Looks Good
Arrived quickly, actually enjoyed putting it together. Only split a few pieces so far, but seemed to power through and cycle quickly. Only thing is it has small leak on hose fitting going into the filter. I did use pipe dope. I heard of this from another review. Will have to try something new.

A Robust Machine
Received our splitter on time, and then waited 2.5 weeks for the hydraulic fluid shipment to catch up! (There's a story about that...)
Got the splitter assembled with no problems. My overhead lift made some operations much easier and safer to perform. Getting the bolts properly installed to hold the engine to the frame was difficult for large hands.

Quality of the components is robust and excellent. The hardware is equally strong and of good quality. The Kohler motor is set up with dip... more

Great Splitter
It took about four hours to put it together, but was well worth it. You need to write the Engine S/N and info down about the Kohler engine before you install it. Once you install the engine, the data plate is up against the Hydraulic tank. The engine started on the second pull. Split my first wood today. It is a little heavy for moving by hand, but that is why we have trucks!!!!

"Very heavy (675 lbs), used my neighbors Bobcat with tines installed. Instructions are easy to follow. The ram is very heavy, but once you get it stood up on the end, you can walk the ram into place - no problem."

Dirty Hand 28 Ton Splitter
Assembly was not bad even for one person, when it was time to add fluids they do send with the splitter but they summer weight oils. I read the manual and engine takes 40 oz. not on this one I had oil on the floor before the bottle was empty.

I put gas in it and it did start after two pulls but some where on the carburetor it has a leak and will drip gas until the carburetor is empty of fuel so shut fuel off and run dry or I need to look into what's leaking. I bought this splitter to work... more

Good Quality, Nice Design
I rented log splitters for years and finally decided to get my own. From my renting experience I determined that I needed a 25-28 ton splitter to handle White Oak and Elm and to power through large knots and crotches. I decided not to go as high as a 35-ton splitter because of expense, noise, excessive gas usage, and difficulty in maneuvering the splitter due to the weight. I did a LOT of research and decided on the 28HP Dirty Hand splitter.

Let me start at the beginning: unpacking and... more

Ready To Give Up The Monster Maul
After 35 years of busting up our wonderful Oak trees for firewood with a monster maul (a rental splitter when needed) the elbows and wrist joints are pushing back at age 60. With the kids having moved away from home, and a pipeline crossing the property, I have an ample supply of wood, and lack the manpower I used to have. So the purchase of the 28 ton splitter was necessary.

When you order this splitter just make sure you have a way to move the crate where you can have it ready for the... more

"The Dirty Hand Tools 28-Ton Splitter was ordered on a Thursday to be delivered to the local feed store where I scheduled a trailer to be located. I figured the delivery was going to be 2-3 weeks, and I had plenty of time to get the trailer to the feed store. Four working days after the order was placed the feed store operator called and said the truck was in the lot. Where is your trailer? While this caused me a bit of a scramble, and my friends helped me out in various ways, it was an overall positive experience."

Nice Machine Very Happy
Ordered on Friday, arrived the following Thursday. Very fast delivery. Unpacked the crate in the back of my pickup so I could remove each piece by my self. Assembled in about 1.5 hrs. On the 28 ton you have to mount the engine. Instructions say to mount engine first before doing wheels and tow bar. It's actually easier to start by mounting the wheels to the tank, then the tow bar, and then the engine. This way the engine mount platform is off the ground so you can get the bolts through from... more
