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

Best Spliter I Have Ever Owned
I burn a lot of wood in the winter and also have a small business of selling split wood I have never had a splitter that can turn out logs like this thing does. Great reliability and also great on gas. I would definitely recommend anyone to buy this product.
Pros: Exceeded Expectations, Price, Durable, Reliable

Excellent Product
Got it home, put it together no problem. Didn't really even need instructions. The hydraulic fluid came with it (some don't), oil for the motor came with it. Started it up, I've split some knarly stuff and no problems. No leaks and no issues.
Excellent product and reasonably priced. Yes I would buy again and recommend to everyone.
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality, Price

Dirty Hand 27 Ton Log Splitter
So far, so good. Haven't used it a lot yet. Easy to assemble. Easy to start. Looks to be durable. Had two high pressure line leaks, but both were quite loose, and were easy to tighten.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet

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

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

It Looks Good Too!
To choose which log Splitter to buy I read the different "specs" on the Log Splitters Direct website. Two items really jumped out... this machine has an eight inch splitter, not a six inch like all the rest... And it out ways them all at 650lb. Plus its cycle time was one of the fastest. The Kohler motor is way better than I ever imagined.

My only reservation was no reviews... because they were brand new to the market.
I bought it because it sounded so good and was priced... more

A Good Splitter For The Value
I know this was a newer brand of splitter on the market, and was probably made in China, it was, but it had some features that I liked. It was a heavier splitter which means to me a more robust and sturdy frame. It has a Kohler engine which has good reviews, and starts very easy. I recently split some very gnarly Elm and some knotty Oak sections and it pushed right through them, it slowed it a bit but it never stopped it.

A couple of cons I had is the arrangements of the intake oil... more

A Mix
What you read from others is true. It comes superbly crated. It looks good. It is easy to put together (on a concrete slab so you can stand the ram up for final assembly). It comes with oil. Overall quite impressive for the money.

Mine arrived in less than a week! I had it shipped to a place of work so I could use a fork lift and avoid the extra shipping charge.

Before you put oil in it note that Teflon tape is missing from some hydraulic connections and be sure to take them apart and... more
