Log Splitters Direct Recommended

Designed and engineered in Colorado, the Dirty Hand Tools 100171 22-ton gas log splitter is designed to make tough jobs easier.

Powered by a 196cc Kohler SH265 engine that produces 6.5HP, the Dirty Hand Tools 100171 delivers plenty of power and let's you split wood in both vertical and horizontal positions. This model has an 11 second cycle time (pretty quick compared to other splitters in this category). I also like the auto return and adjustable detent.

Such An Amazing Log Splitter!
Bought this log splitter almost 1 year ago, decided to wait awhile before writing a review to see how it performed. Couldn't be more happy!

Delivery came in a small box truck that was able to maneuver down my small private street. And unloading was fairly simple, my driveway is a bit steep near the street so it was a heavy haul up the hill. It came in a very sturdy crate, well packaged and easy to assemble. The steel beam is the heaviest part but thankfully, you only have to stand it up... more

Will Not Recommend
Has been hard to start since day one. Stored exactly the way it is recommended and after about 4 hours run time had to have the carb rebuilt. Always run it with mid grade octane. Muffler cover screws vibrated out during 2nd use. Had to tighten main hydraulic hose during first run.
Pros: Light Weight, Easy To Store
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, Durability, Hard to start

Wish Wood Cutting Was As Easy As The Purchase
Everything with my purchase from Log Splitters Direct went better than expected. Sent in the check and the splitter arrived. Simple as that. The only problem we had was getting the semi truck turned around. (see picture) I was expecting a small box truck. The driver did a great job in the little space he had. He was very pleasant and gladly waited while we inspected the crate. Nothing was out of place. My wife and I had it assembled in a little over a hour. ( We had a few ice teas it... more

Log Splitter
I am very happy with the splitter. Looked like a job to put together, but was very easy. Not impressed with the shipping company which said it would be there on two different days and then just showed up. Hard to be there when they say and then no call and no show.

22 Ton Splitter
The unit arrived on the 11th of July as promised. It was very well packaged, I paid the extra $50.00 for a lift gate truck It was fairly easy to slide it off of the trailer truck into my old single axle WW trailer.. The WW is only about 14 inches above the ground. I just unpacked it in my trailer. Assemble was very straight forward, instructions very good.

There was tiny drip from the flexible pipe on the pump feed. No biggie, one half turn tight on the hose clamp fixed that. I waited one... more

Great Tool!
I've been shopping for years for a log splitter and when it came time to purchase I was pretty knowledgeable about most of them. I was surprised to find so many models out there that looked very poorly built. This one is not one of those. Very sturdy construction. Packaging is good and set up was very quick and easy. I was using it within 30 minutes of unpacking. The price is very competitive and free shipping a bonus!
Pros: Easy To Use, Durable, High Quality, Fast

The item was considerably packaged very well and the delivery man was very helpful. Any who purchase this item should be assured that it will provide years of hard Work. The instructions were very clear, so assembling the unit was no brainer. I have no negative comments on this product.
Pros: Durable, Reliable, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

Good product, easy to assemble. Make sure to be careful adding oil to engine and hydraulic system easy to create a mess if not careful, starts on first pull every time and runs flawless. A little heavy to move very far by hand. Excellent machine.
Pros: Durable, Features, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality

Good Splitter But Bad Customer Service
Putting the splitter together was relatively easy and directions were good with a few hiccups. There is one thing that went wrong during the initial put together phase. The splitter came with engine oil. The exact amount the engine takes as specified in the literature. So i poured it all in and most if not all of it came rushing out and onto the floor. Not sure if there was oil already in it. Did not say that in the directions. Engine starts with one pull. Split a cord of wood with ease.... more
Pros: Price, Easy To Use, Durable, Quiet
Cons: Bad Customer Service

Purchase this log splitter and very happy with purchase. Customer service is top notch easy to communicate with decent follow-up.

Price was good with free shipping that sold me. Spider coupler assembly broke only after using it for about three cores of wood. The customer service representative rectified the situation in a very professional manner.

Only drawbacks of this unit is the short tongue length which makes it difficult to maneuver as well as the splitting blade length is only 6... more
