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

Off To A Frustrating Start!
When the log splitter arrived, the delivery person said we could not open the crate to inspect for damage. We had to get his supervisor on the phone and get "permission" even though there was big lettering on the top of the box "inspect this product on delivery". although we had done a lot of research on assembling the product, the amount of time stated that it would take was far less hours than it took. there were no instructions for the log catcher. once it was finally... more

My First Log Splitter
After a long wait (not used to freight shipping), a crate arrived in my driveway. After careful dismantling, I found a fairly well packaged unit that needed some assembly, but no instructions to be found. A quick search on youtube helped me assemble it fairly quickly, and my mechanical background helped the process along. For the most part I was able to assemble it myself, with my wife helping lift the main beam onto the frame. After tightening down all the bolts, I added 5 gallons of... more

Very Good Splitter, So Far.
It is difficult to assemble by yourself, but I did it. Measuring tape on work surface destroyed in first 3-4 usages.
Pros: Price, I'd Buy It Again, Reliable, Quiet

Off To A Good Start
I have just had this machine for a couple of weeks, so these comments are essentially first impressions.
a. The crate with the unassembled splitter arrived a few days late the problem was with the local delivery firm, which tried to deliver on time, but found that it did not have the right rig to offload the heavy crate from the truck. They dropped it off successfully a few days later.
b. It was relatively straightforward to assemble the splitter. I had a friend to help, and this is... more
Pros: Price, Easy To Use, High Quality, The crating was done well.
Cons: Somewhat noisy

Incredible Wood Splitter
Product is high quality & will split anything I put through it.

Note the following assembly problems. The wheel spindle nuts went well passed the cotter pin hole, hence cotter pin would not lock nut in place. Added additional washer to space nut farther out on the spindle so cotter pin could lock nut in place. A 24mm wrench would not fit on the 24mm hydraulic hose fitting. Had to use an adjustable wrench. The bolts for the optional large steel log catcher side table were not long... more

"Order process with PED was easy. Make sure to get the truck lift gate option to get package off of truck. Log splitter is very heavy. Had to disassemble log splitter package at end of my driveway & carry the individual parts to my garage for assembly."

Warranty Info
Just wrote a review about my registration card that was returned stating insufficient address and not forwardable. Found on card a web site to register online. I tried to online with no success. There is a phone number but closed on weekends. I'll try Monday by phone and see if I get a live person.
Pros: Price, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable
Cons: Lots of rattling. Noisey.

Charles,
The online warranty registration looked OK to me, but be sure to use the little Up/Down arrows to start the Serial Number entry. You can also reach the folks at Dirty Hand Tools at 877-487-8275. Please have the serial number of your unit handy when you call in case they ask for it.

The Factory Warranty covers your unit from the day it's delivered, whether you register the warranty or not.

So Far - So Good
Contrary to other ratings, was extremely easy to put together (I am 78) alone. Excellent directions, to about 4 1/2 hours from uncrating to start it up. Have split about a cord of mostly rock maple, tray on side is wonderful advantage, easy to go horizontal to vertical.
Pros: Price, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations
