Awesome
Being a first time owner of a log splitter, I wasn't sure what to expect. After some asking around, I determined that the motor type and ram tonnage was where I should focus. Let me tell ya, the Briggs and Stratton engine combined with the 25-ton ram make this log splitter all I need and then some.

I heat primarily with wood, so it's gotten it's fair share of usage so far. Engine starts within two pulls every time, and the ram has split some serious lunkers with ease. I would strongly... more

My First Log Splitter And I Love It
Love this machine. I had it for about a month and so far it has split everything I put on it. 3 cords split so far. It was sad using it for the first time because it's like a new car to me and I didn't want to put a scratch on it, lol..

For the price, it was cheaper than most and came with more options and ton power.

The Features - I like the 4-way splitter but it doesn't work for bigger pieces of wood. If the height was adjustable it would work great.

Quality- This machine is heavy... I... more

"I had a great experience with Log Splitter Direct. I was concerned and had questions about the warranty as well as the extended warranty. None of this information is listed on this site. I called customer service about it but the sales rep. was not able to help me fully understand the warranty. She sent me information about the extended warranty and after trying to decode the contract I felt like the extended warranty was a waste of money and I also felt like it literally covered nothing. She also gave me Yardmax direct number to get the information I needed. After talking to the customer service rep at Yardmax, he was able to answer my questions. He was awesome to talk to and a big help on finalizing my purchase."

Very Good Machine
During assembly, I noticed that it was very well made, all of the welds, the fit up, the hardware, the paint, etc. It is a very well built / engineered wood splitter. Then I went to use it and was completely pleased. I would list the cons but there are none. It is not light weight.
Pros: Durable, Quiet, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality

Great Value
Works great. Only challenge is to figure out where to put the engine oil, as there are 2 different places for it and one is lower than the other. Kinda weird.
Pros: High Quality, Price
Cons: Bad Instructions

Beast Of A Wood Splitter
I am brand new to gas wood splitting. Was always an exercise, maul and sledge hammer type. I got my Yardmax 25 ton last night and today tested it out. Holy s#$t, what a machine!!!

I split almost 4 cords of wood and the best part was it was fun ! I had several big logs and the Yardmax 25 ton went through them like a hot knife through butter. If in the market, a mistake if you don't check this beast out.

Good Machine
I'm really happy with this splitter. Assembly was easy. Splitting is quick with the Oak and Birch logs I have. I split a cord of wood with a little over a half gallon of gas. I'm not sure if that's good or bad. I say go ahead and buy it. You are getting quite a big bang for your buck.

Power Vs. Mobility
Assembly was a hefty job. Even with two men had a difficult time. The machine is truly powerful. Standing the splitter to vertical took all my strength. I'm 77 but in good shape.

Moving the machine is also a hefty job. I used my Zero Turn mower with trailer hitch and it is still heavy to get on the hitch. A swivel wheel on the stand would help with moving the machine around.

Great log splitter for the bang. A little nose heavy to move around. In horizontal position, I find myself straddling the axle with my legs. The fittings on the lines get very hot. I haven't had any log that this splitter hasn't been able to split. If I were looking for a splitter, this is the one.
