Powerking 34 Ton Log Splitter Pk0303
Received the Power King in an enclosed wooden crate yesterday. Opening the crate was a challenge due to the metal locking tabs and the freight company had rammed a fork in the lower corner but no damage was done. Be forewarned this brute is heavy in the crate so plan on 3+people to load and unload it. Now about the splitter, assembly was semi-easy and the and the china man tapered the landing foot on the wrong side so I needed to chamfer the opposite side in order to extend the leg all the way... more
Pros: Features, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality
Cons: Bad Instructions

Pat,
HI Pat, WOW thanks for the 5 star review and your call to us at Powerking. Thank you for calling me to let me know about how well you liked your splitter quality performance on twisted hickory. We have also increased the shipping crate strength with a built in pallet on this unit so your unit arrives undamaged. The splitter ram, transmission, body and engine arrives fully factory assembled. Assemble wheels, tow bar and work table and get to splitting. Glad your Kohler Command Pro engine is running strong. Your engine has a 3 year warranty. Thanks again for the call and thank you for choosing Powerking at Power Equipment Direct.

Powerking 34-ton 6.5hp
Didn't come with any assembly instructions, closest thing to any instructions was a 5 " x 8" exploded view of the splitter.
Advertised 24" log length, measured 21 1/4" from wedge to ram. Unfortunately cut two cords at 23" while waiting for delivery.

All in all it's a decent splitter and I recommend it.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Fast, Easy To Store
Cons: Bad Instructions, advertised 24

Gene,
I am so sorry for the log length error, and the amount of time it must have taken to trim the wood you had already cut! There was an error in the conversion from millimeters to inches. I've since update the page with the correct log length (21") and width (27") as found in the Owner's Manual.

We appreciate your business, and apologize for the inconvenience.

Great Splitter
This is a great log splitter and it's really fast! Like 1 second per split fast. Instructions are worthless. Shipping crate took as long to open as the assembly! You literally are on your own to figure out what to assemble 1st since the instructions suck that bad. The fold down leg will have to be modified to be folded properly. You would think for the money that the importer of this obviously chinese made log splitter would spend a few minutes making sure the assembly instructions are coherent... more

Robert,
Glad you like your splitter and it is working great for you. We do send these all over the country and want your product to arrive undamaged from LTL trucking. For this reason we do have a super duper crate and your right, it takes some time to open it only to find your product arrived safe. The front leg stand you recieved was chamfered on the back side instead of the front side. We have had 3 of these like this out of hundreds of splitters sold. We can send you a replacement right away just give us a call. Your unit comes completely assembled except for the axles, wheels and work table. We value your suggestion to include info in the manual and will include additional instruction sheet on the minor assembly process for others until the new manuals are updated and printed. Thank you so much for choosing Powerking at PED and your valuable input on the product. Happy Splitting.
Best Regards, Gregg - Founder of Powerking.

Awesome Splitter
The PowerKing 34-Ton splitter has Amazed us. It is very fast and actually fun to use.
We use it in a commerical setting to split the ends and cores from our veneer logs. In the 6 weeks since we have had the splitter. We have used it for 60 hours without any problems. Even large 24" x 18" blocks it splits with no problems.
We process all hardwoods. Primarily Oak, Ash, Elm, Walnut, Hard Maple, Cherry, Birch.
We wonder why we ever used a hydraulic splitter.
You won't be... more

What A Great Log Splitter!
When purchasing the Log Splitter I looked at a cheaper one from Harbor Freight which can split in both directions, then looked at a splitter with the high end named brand that was hydrolic. Based on other reviews I decided to give this Kinetic version a try. It arrived in an enclosed wood crate with its own pallet, which the delivery guy helped me bring to the back side of my house and with a lift gate it was easy to get back there with just him and I. With gloves and some good tools I was... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, Quiet, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Bad Instructions

Awesome Surprise
This is an amazing log splitter. 'Ive never used a Kinetic splitter before and had some concerns but after speaking to the pros I ordered it. First impression it is very well made but the real surprise is using it. It splits knotted red oak without any hesitation and very fast. I read some reviews that complained about the assembly but there is very little assembly and its all common sense it took me an 1:10 mins from the time I opened the crate to start up. The packaging is very stout which I... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, Features, High Quality
Cons: I did not find this sooner : )

It Performs As Advertised, Quick And Easy
Hope you're mechanically inclined, for assembly instructions all I received was the Owner's Manual with a 5" x 8" exploded view the splitter.

All said and done, after assembly. It performed as advertised and I am very satisfied with it.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast
Cons: Bad Instructions
