This is a sturdy, reliable splitter, much like our Good and Best selections- but here's what set's it apart.

First of all, this can be towed on public roads, so you can go where the wood is. If your state requires DOT lighting and/or license plate holder you can add those separately.

Second is the Subaru engine- it is strong and reliable. The whole unit is covered by a 2 year factory warranty.

Phil's Experience With Log Splitters Direct
Web Site


"The salesman told me he would include an extra gallon of hydraulic fluid, on top of the one that was already included. Turns out they don't have any to include. This has almost nothing to do with LSD, but shipping to 90 miles away took 5 days the last 90 miles took another 5 days. I live in rural northern California which was the issue according to the last shipper. I would have liked to see more pictures and more details of the unit than what LSD shows on their web site. To buy a couple gallons of hydraulic fluid was easy, and pretty cheap. I love the machine. LSD probably wishes they could tell the "truth" about the other machines they offer. ie, they're not as good."
