Very Satisfied Costumer.
I had a huge white oak fall down across my driveway..I blocked off about 10 pieces that were 3' in diameter way to big to split by hand ..I have been putting off buying a splitter for yrs. But now pushing 60 and arthritis in my shoulder I decided it was time.

After some research, I picked the dirty hands splitter. .I couldn't be happier it works Flawlessly went thru that oak like it was butter never had a problem ..the price was right and the quality is great..

Works Well, But Came With Defective Coupler
Like another couple of reviewers, the coupling between the engine and the hydraulic pump completely failed about 3 hours into operation. DHT said it was a known issue and they had a new batch of couplers. Replaced it yesterday, hopefully it hangs in there!

Other than that, it has worked as expected.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Features
Cons: Low Quality

Packaging And Instructions Great
Assembly was a breeze. All parts fit perfectly some help was required to lift the splitting section because of the weight. I won't be able to use for a few weeks. The engine started on the second pull and the ram runs up and down smoothly.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

Excellent Equipment
Shipment was in 4 days. Assembly was easy, just read the directions closely. The unit started on the second pull. It took a few cycles and the hydraulic ram worked perfectly smooth.

Operation of the unit is excellent. I have some 3 feet diameter logs, and it just takes 2 rams and the log was split. I did this in the upright position. This is an excellent unit and makes splitting logs easy.
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality, Light Weight

"I hooked the unit to my Jeep and moved right up to my pile of logs. I split wood so easy. As I split the logs, I just moved the Jeep and log splitter closer to the wood. I didn't have to remove the unit from the Jeep to operate it. This made it to where I didn't have to carry logs to the unit. When I was done. One person can easily lift the unit off the hitch. It is very light on the tongue end. Excellent equipment."

Nice Little Machine
Delivery was great, assembly was easy only about an hour. Started up fairly easy the first time and very easy afterwards.

So far I have used it to split about 30 Oak logs about 14" diameter and 18" long. It worked just fine.

On the Knotty ones it would hesitate for a second and then split with no problem. No leaks so far. Very pleased with it and I would recommend to purchase one.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Fast, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: none

Love this 27 ton splitter after assembly did a test on a 24 inch round and it made mince meat out of it

easy to assemble instructions... excellent machine
con

1. after mounting the wheel: the hole drilled in the wheel axel was outside the reach of the castle nut so the cotter pin did not fit into the castle nut slots.. I purchased a duplicate washer to space the castle nut within the drilled hole and now cotter pin is secure and locked in the castle nut slot

2. there was no slot... more

Omg!
Been splitting wood by hand for 30 years. Didn't want this big of a machine but now I wished I'd had it sooner. Doesn't matter what it's going through, it will split anything I've thrown at it so far. Tilting it up to the vertical was a huge advantage! Large rounds can be rolled over to it with no log lifting involved. It's a bit noisy but I LOVE IT!
Pros: Exceeded Expectations, Price, Features, Light Weight
Cons: Noisy

Great Product To Use, But One Product Defect.
The splitter came on time and the delivery was great. The packaging was very protective and the assembly was no real problem. The instructions are OK for the handy. I had a early failure (3 hours in use). The motor to hydro pump coupler completely sheered off. This was not due to hard use. I think the metal was dead soft and had never been case harden. No way soft steel would handle that kind of torque. I called Dirty Hands and the sent me a new coupler set no questions asked. I have seen this... more

Great Price Great Splitter
I split about 20 cord of wood in a couple of days after receiving this splitter. Based on reviews and price I bought the dirty hand 27ton splitter and can't be happier. Assembly was easy and straight forward. Could have done it alone but a set of extra hands added a level of safety. I was splitting cherry, locust and oak up to 17" diameter. The free shipping is a bit deceptive unless you have it shipped to a loading dock or have a forklift at home.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality
