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 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

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

Great Unit For The $$$$$$$
I received the unit on 7-19-13 at my work due to having a forklift available there. It was in a wooden crate with much care put into it. When opening the crate and taking inventory all was there minus a set of instructions, but looking at the parts and hardware it was very self explanatory how to assemble. 2 of the 3 main log splitter pieces are to heavy to handle by yourself, line up and start the bolts at the same time so I used an engine crane that I have in my garage to help greatly. ... more

"PED was great to deal with even though there was a little of a hold up since I paid by check and it fell during the Holiday there was a gap in getting my check cleared. Shipping was fine with R and L. I thought there was going to be an issue, but all worked out and could of been easily clarified if I would of just asked a couple more questions perhaps. I will not take away any stars for that because I just never order a large piece like this, so I have learned to ask more questions in the future."

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

This Splitter Is Awesome
The splitter starts on the 2nd or 3rd pull every time(unless you have the gas supply off). I've had it 1 month, probably ran it on 10 different occasions and usually for 2-4 hrs each time. It's great. Rips thru wood without a pause, both green and seasoned wood. Assembly was easy, about an hour for 1 person. The online web site had some really good info, so I could select the right tool for me. This is perfect.

A few minor cons: Couldn't find the manual for the engine right away, so I had... more

Well Worth The Money
This splitter is hands down better than any other splitter in this price range. Heavy duty and well made. Fast cycle speed and a lot of power. I am very pleased with this purchase.
Pros: Exceeded Expectations, High Quality, Features, Price

Exceptional
Exceptional Splitter. I live in North East Pa. and was looking for a splitter that was tough, but also fast.
This splitter does it all! I can't keep wood ahead of my wife pulling and pushing the handle! My only suggestion would be some protective coverings for engine and hydraulic lines, from falling wood.
Great machine, and value. WOW!
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Fast, I'd Buy It Again

Poor Quality Control
Had to fix recoil starter before using. Had to fix oil leak. With only 4 hours of use, the engine to oil pump coupling destroyed itself. This was caused by misalignment of the two shafts.
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable

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
