I borrowed a brave wood splitter from my good friend. He said he had bought it about 20 years ago. It still performed like a new one. No leaks, started great, performed like a champ. It looks like brave is the only brand that still builds them with the full frame. All the new ones look so cheap and light. My money would go towards the brave! This thing will work the **$$ out of you!
Had me this model BRAVE log splitter now for well over 20 yrs. BRIGGS motor works fine.
ABSOLUTELY the most dependable pc. of equipment I have ever owned. WELL MADE 26 Tons of ram pressure handles pretty much anything folks.
WARNING watch the BOYS if the wood is HARD and SCREAMING as it splits. STAND CLEAR...
Friend found out the hard way. WELL WORTH it . .

Second Time Buyer
I bought my first Brave about 10 years ago. I split a LOT of logs for the fireplace. Got stupid and sold it a couple of years ago with the intent of splitting by hand again. 65 years old and can no longer split by hand so I bought the ONLY splitter to be used- a brand new Brave 26-ton. I would never buy any other brand - reliable, powerful, easy to assemble, starts usually first pull and unlike my wife of forty years it never is too tired to perform and never complains!

Patrick's Experience With Log Splitters Direct
"I paid extra for the lift truck when the truck arrived early the driver could have not been more cooperative unloading the splitter. I asked him to drop in the driveway and he insisted on putting it in the garage out of the elements
