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

"It was a very pleasant buying experience. Delivery was faster than expected. The first unit I received had been damaged in transit so I refused delivery.

Quality Splitter At A Good Price
Log splitter shipped fast and I received it within 5 days of ordering it. I choose Lift gate service, which I think is essential since the shipping weight is over 600 lbs. and I would not have been able to get it off the truck without the lift gate and pallet jack. Packed well in a sturdy wood crate, no damage to splitter at all. Assembly instructions were good, parts were on a numbered card that matched the steps in the manual.

Very well made splitter, it included the log cradles which... more

Happy With My Choice
Used it for the first time 2/6/17. Runs great, fast cycle time, nice features. Two ash trees dropped, limbed and chunked. All chunks were split in about 1 1/2 hours without a hiccup. The double cradles are very handy, prevents toe damage and gas tank damage. Very pleased with the unit.

Great Deal Great Splitter
This thing is great. The four way wedge is awesome and I haven't found the log to stop it yet...I have made it groan and creak a bit. For the money, you can't beat it. Assembly and moving the crate are better suited for two people than one....all in all, I would definitely do it again!

I absolutely love it. It's a great piece of equipment and has made splitting wood so much easier. We love that it can be vertical or horizontal, especially with how inconsistent our log width is.

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.
