The Dirty Hand Tools 100408 27-ton log splitter will quickly make a stack of firewood out of even your largest trees and logs.

The Dirty Hand Tools 100408 is powered by an easy-starting Kohler 6.5HP 4-cycle engine that powers the 2 stage, 13 gpm pump, generating 3400psi of splitting force. Logs up to 25" long are no problem. And the 14-second cycle time makes it one of the fastest hydraulic splitters in its class.

The Dirty Hand Tools 100408 is designed for easy transition between... more

Nice Splitter For The $$
I have run this splitter now for two weeks. Split up 20+ cords of wood. Not a single problem. Very pleased. Love the single beam design, I think it's better than many of the much more expensive models. I've sheared off many bolts on the rental units, and this single beam design should solve that issue. Very heavy, which is good when you're putting that much pressure on a tool. Good luck, hope your experience is the same as mine!
Pros: Exceeded Expectations, Price, Durable, Fast

Dirty Hand Log Splitter
I need a log splitter for my place up north. I recently had several trees cut down and have a lot of wood to be split. The Dirty Hand Log Splitter that I purchased from Log Splitters Direct was just what I needed and very affordable. It was shipped and delivered right to my door in a timely and professional manner. Have been splitting wood ever since without any problems.

Great Splitter
I love this thing. When the package arrived I was surprised at the size of the shipping crate. I ordered a lift gate which turned out to be a good move. The truck driver was able to lower his gate to a level above my truck tailgate and use his pallet jack to get it into my truck. The crate was very large and heavy. I used my cherry picker to get the large components out of the crate. It was very well packaged and easy to assemble for one person, it took me about 2 hours. All the necessary oils... more

Splitter works fantastic! Quiet and very quick. The delivery company was great. I had to change the date of delivery and was no problem at all. Unit came very well crated.

It took my son and I an hour to put together. Very impressed with construction. I know I made the right purchase! Thank you.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, Quiet, I'd Buy It Again

Still Experiencing Legacy Quality Issues
Unit performs well and was very well packed for delivery. However the unit still suffers (as reported by other consumers) from leaking of hydraulic fluid around threaded joints where the manufacturer neglected to seal with Teflon tape and from the loosely installed filter. These were easily fixed, however they should be addressed during assembly.

Great Piece Of Machinery
Finally got to an age that hand splitting once or twice a year was too physically taxing, (age, 62). the Wife, (of all people!!) encouraged me to get a splitter. Best investment I ever made in firewood work.

This splitter starts easy, and splits Everything you throw on it. I live in the south so we can challenge this machine with a wide variety of hardwoods, all no problem at all. I even, (finally) split my old, dry, gnarled, "stump" section of oak I had been using to chop wood on... more

I have split wood with a maul for many years. The Dirty Hand log splitter is an amazing tool. I'm not sure why I waited so long to get one. I'm very satisfied. Now I have to stack all the wood I split.
