Great Log Splitter
I am very pleased with this splitter so far. I haven't put it through its paces yet because I only have used it an hour or two so far. It starts first pull and has had enough power to split anything I have put in front of it. It's heavy and is well made! It was well packaged and assembly was not difficult.

It is heavy and having a guy to help in assembly is mandatory. I'm 67 years old and had my wife as a helper. We accomplished the feat without issue but I can say it was a challenge. The... more

Fantastic Log Splitter 5 Stars - Horrible Engine 0 Stars
The log splitter was fantastic. In fact, it would have gotten 5 stars, except for the engine. Since the engine is horrid, and it won't run without an engine, it got dropped to 1 star they picked the engine.

When I unpacked it to assemble it, I was struck by two things. First, this is much heavier and beefier than I expected, with better quality parts. I have a number of pieces of farm equipment from China, and the quality varies a lot. This is definitely one of the better pieces of... more

Yardmax 25 Ton Splitter
Just got my Yardmax 25 ton splitter on Tuesday. Love it. Three cord, one person, and just under two tanks of fuel. Screw splitting by hand. Get one of these. Great, reliable, fast, and just plain fun. Would buy it again. Thank you Log Splitters Direct. I will be talking this up to anyone and everyone that is looking for a splitter. I will also be sending them your way. The customer service was awesome.

Impressive
I have to say I'm impressed. Everything works very well. The only complaints I have are. It leaks a little hydraulic oil. And it gets really hot. Which worries me. Running that hot can't be good for its life span.
Other then that the thing is really powerful and the motor runs great. Turn on the fuel, open the choke and give it a pull first pull everytime so far. I have split some really nasty stuff. Black locus full of knots maple. Two cords so far.

"Everything went well until the delivery. It was delayed no fault of LSD. I called the delivery service and asked if they could please bring it in a box truck. It came in a semi. My drive way is 200 feet and narrow so I had to drag the thing down the driveway.. oh well. My experience with LSD was good and I would recommend them to anybody."

Just As Good As The Rented Commercial Splitter
This splitter went through all types of wood just as good as the one I rented at Home Depot for $125.00 day. I researched for a long time before I made my mind up. I think this was a great purchase. I can use it anytime and not have to rush to return it.

It was easy to assemble. My Wife and I are in our fifties and did not have any troubles although I was a little uneasy when we attached the press in the upright position. I would recommend someone fairly strong to help.

Heavy, Well Built!
Heavy, well built log splitter. Love the super heavy beam and Briggs & Stratton engine. Has plenty of splitting power. Good cycle time. Easy to assemble.

Wish it had a handle on the top of the beam to help lift it to the vertical position as it is quite heavy! The handle that is on the bottom would serve better on top. Also, the tongue jack needs to be adjustable as the tongue is quite heavy, and an adjustable screw jack would be a big help.

I have split about 1/2 pickup... more

"Log Splitters Direct shipped fast and supplied tracking number fast. The shipper caused a 1-day delay getting to the local terminal and then caused another 1-day delay when they didn't get it loaded on the truck coming to my area. Log Splitters Direct is a great company, wish they would look for a better shipper."

It's A Great Log Splitter But...
I really like this log splitter, but I was disappointed in a couple of things.

1. The instructions are terrible and you need to watch the video in order to know how to put the thing together correctly.

2. The 4-way splitter attachment that comes with it wasn't even installed correctly and I had to fix that before I used it.

Other than that, I'm having fun.
Pros: Price, Easy To Use
Cons: Heavy, Bad Instructions

Awesome
Being a first time owner of a log splitter, I wasn't sure what to expect. After some asking around, I determined that the motor type and ram tonnage was where I should focus. Let me tell ya, the Briggs and Stratton engine combined with the 25-ton ram make this log splitter all I need and then some.

I heat primarily with wood, so it's gotten it's fair share of usage so far. Engine starts within two pulls every time, and the ram has split some serious lunkers with ease. I would strongly... more

Beast Of A Wood Splitter
I am brand new to gas wood splitting. Was always an exercise, maul and sledge hammer type. I got my Yardmax 25 ton last night and today tested it out. Holy s#$t, what a machine!!!

I split almost 4 cords of wood and the best part was it was fun ! I had several big logs and the Yardmax 25 ton went through them like a hot knife through butter. If in the market, a mistake if you don't check this beast out.

Good Machine
I'm really happy with this splitter. Assembly was easy. Splitting is quick with the Oak and Birch logs I have. I split a cord of wood with a little over a half gallon of gas. I'm not sure if that's good or bad. I say go ahead and buy it. You are getting quite a big bang for your buck.
