Does The Job
Works great, splits anything you can roll over to it.. Lightweight to move around.. Starts one pull.. Split about 10 cords, yet to drop a log on the engine, guess if you are a klutz, that would be an issue..
Pros: Price, Light Weight, Exceeded Expectations, I'd Buy It Again

Troy Bilt
Good for the money, I did 40 cords and simply the thing broke and I had to ship it, but I have the 3 yr. plan. Starts up everytime.
It's a shame the logs fall on the motor in the horizontal position.

I split over 100 cords, still going strong. Still good for the money with my trusty Honda engine. I would not buy it again though, only because I need a four way wedge and a log lift. In other words my back will break down before this machine. Perfect for a home owner.. I guess its for sale... t.b.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Price, Reliable
Cons: No Cons

Splits Everything
Bought this splitter a few months ago and wish I would have bought it a long time ago!

I split about 10 cords so far this year and it has went through everything. There was one nasty crotch in an old oak tree that I did have to wiggle it a few times, but it ultimately did split through it. Only problem is I can't find a larger log catcher for it.
Pros: Price, Light Weight, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable

Low Quality Of Troy-bilt Logsplitter
I owned a 27-ton Troy-Bilt log splitter for 6 years, which I purchased new. I split about 5-10 cords a year with it. The valve control handle broke once a few years ago and I had to pay to get it repaired.

Just this year, the cylinder broke and hydraulic fluid leaked out after a weld gave way near the valve handle, going into the cylinder wedge. To me, the welding is basic quality control, it should not break.

I called the manufacturer and found out there was another issue as well, and... more

27-ton Troy-bilt Wood Splitter
Great machine for splitting, but log side cradles are not strong enough. the bolts continue to shear.

Excellent
I prep it, and it started on the first pull ! I couldn't believe it. Plus the pull was extremely easy! Half the tension of other motors. I really love the cradle arms, which were standard. That takes a lot of strain off my back. I also like the dislodger, again standard equipment. It is well built and I love it. I don't have to rent one now and can use this at my leisure.

Troy-bilt 27-ton Horizontal / Vertical Gas Log Splitter
I wanted to purchase a new log splitter for my husband as our old one was wearing out. Local stores were sold out for the season. I found Log Log Splitters Direct on line and they had one available and it was the size we were looking for.

"Works great. Fast shipment. I was surprised though that it didn't have fenders and tail lights like our old one of the same size. I was also surprised that we had to assemble it."

Two Fold Review
To whom it may concern:(A) The log splitter itself works great and is very powerful and have found nothing that it cannot split. (B) The power source is the easiest to start with excessive power, would recommend it to anyone. 2.Engineering leaves a lot to be desired. I feel a recall should be done to the base landing gear in the front of the frame.

The drop down channel support cannot be lowered,the channel is too long as a result the unit must be removed from my Polaris six wheeler (500... more
