Q: Does this splitter have a cold start feature?
by Allen Hughes from Nebraska on March 03, 2014

A: Allen,

There isn't specifically a cold start feature but you need to be aware of the recommended temperature range of the hydraulic fluid used in the splitter. Operating the splitter in cold temperatures may cause cavitation in the cylinder if the hydraulic fluid congeals and thickens. Please check your manuals for specific limitations.

Log Splitters Direct Recommended

This splitter has the benefit of Cub Cadet's long history of quality yard tools. It splits a little faster than most units in this category, so over the course of time you will get more work done in the same amount of time.

What we really like about this unit is the built-in log cradles on either side of the beam. Once the wood splits, they keep the pieces on the beam so you can just grab them and stack them without bending over to pick them up.

We also like the diamond-tread steel... more

This Splitter Is Amazing
This Cub Cadet splitter is amazing for its size, I have used my brothers splitter which is larger, and has a 13hp Honda engine it is I believe 47 ton - a very strong and fast machine but also heavy to maneuver around. This little Cub Cadet 27 ton with about Half the engine can do the same thing I did with the larger splitter, and this splitter is much easier for me to handle. It is Lighter, smaller and more efficient - what a wonderful Log Splitter! And it also tilts up so you do not have to... more

My Initial Thoughts After Purchasing A Cub Cadet Log Splitter
Based on the recommendations here, the Cub Cadet was one of the top 3 log splitters.

This weekend I got started working with my new tool, I've been splitting 4 to 8 cords a year by hand and figured my kids could help with a splitter.

The first thing I split was all the knotted, twisted, knarly pieces that I have set aside for years (just not wanting to deal with them by hand). With the splitter running about 80-90% it took care of these with no problem or strain on the engine.

Awesome Purchase
A tornado touched down 1000 feet from the back of our house, which sits in the middle of a hardwood forest (100 footers). We lost 30 trees, many of which simply sheared off 20' above the ground.

There was a big mess of 2' to 4' diameter timber laying around. This is the backdrop for my quick purchase of the Cub Cadet 27-ton log splitter. We're spending weekends slicing up the trunks into wood-stove-length sections, then splitting them up with the Cub Cadet.

I tow the Cub Cadet to... more

Cub Cadet(mtd) Customer Service Rude
Great splitter! Had a minor issue that I contacted Cub Cadet's tech department about. Was treated like a child, very condescending and insulting treatment from 3 levels of their customer service. Ended up paying $200 dollars for a replacement part. I am very pleased with Power Equipment Direct, but, I will never by another Cub Cadet (MTD) product.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Durable, Fast
Cons: Terrible Customer Service From The Manufacturer

Easy Set Up And Easy To Use - Goes Through Oak Like Butter!
I had procrastinated on getting a log splitter for over two years. After hurting my back splitting wood the old fashioned way with axe and wedges I started my research.

Log Splitters Direct was a great reference. From this site I could assess a wide variety of splitters - even for my limited California CARB requirements. After many nights on Google and other web sites, I chose the Cub Cadet 27 ton horizontal/vertical splitter. I ordered it on Log Splitters Direct and received it via freight... more

Great Versatile Splitter
The unit arrived on time, quick to assemble, and we were splitting 24" diameter logs within the first hour. Very good quality, quite, easy to operate, split a pile of old hard wood quickly, and I'm very satisfied.

Get one, you'll be glad you did!
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Fast, I'd Buy It Again

Aahhh.... Not That Great
It's now broken for the second time.. The first time it broke I noticed the handled assembly was leaking fluid slightly, and then suddenly the auto return stopped working. I got it fixed with a replacement.

I just broke it out to start splitting this coming years wood, and well, it slowly started leaking, then the auto return stopped, and now it creeps back up very very slowly.

I grease the rail every use, I maintain it to the fullest.. I paid extra for what was supposed to be the... more

Good Splitter At A Good Price
I needed a splitter to split about 6 cords a year of mixed hard and soft wood. This splitter cuts through anything without slowing down.

Love My Wood
When I purchased this log splitter it was on back order. It took a little over a month till I finally received it. The only negative thing is that they should add a cushion between the high pressure hose and the holder piece. I saw that one of the points on the hex was rubbed almost smooth. I was concerned that I would have a leak or some failure in the near future. That being said, the log splitter worked great. I don't believe I'm going to have any future problems. Yes I recommend.

Powerful And Fast
This LS27CCHP is everything Nick says, and more!! A truly powerful, fast, and well designed piece of equipment. The large 270cc engine can be run at partial throttle and still get great performance. I ordered this splitter and it shipped the next day, a Friday. It was at my house on the following Tuesday, I did the final assembly, and was splitting wood that afternoon. You can't beat Log Splitters Direct.
Pros: Exceeded Expectations
