What A Beast!
Very impressed with the heavy strong construction, esp. In the welds! and frame! slices thru large hard woods like "a hot knife thru butter" easy to assemble basically 3 parts, but due to the great construction...heavy!!!! out of the create!!! at least 2 strong men.... I researched and checked out all local home improvement stores, and looked over all their brands with a fine tooth comb!!! yardmax much superior!!!!highly recommend esp. For the price!!!! by far!!!

Best Decision I Have Ever Made About Equipment.
I just built my retirement home on 20 acres on a hill near the Skagit River, WA. I looked for about four months online, at stores, in the newspaper, etc. for a high quality log splitter. I finally turned to one of my friends, a friend and neighbor who runs logging crews, for advice on what i should look for in a machine. Everything he told me added up to the Yardmax. When I decided to buy one, another friend offered to help me assemble it. It took us about an hour an a half once we got it... more

Works Well Both Ways
So far it works well. Still trying to figure out why engine has two dipsticks. We would have saved two days on assembly if we knew instructions and manual were attached to machine. We hope the pin that holds it horizontal will break in over time.

Kind of hard to get it to release right now. Overall, it does what it needs to do split wood. We shall see when we get to some of the little larger wood like 14 to 16 diameter stuff.
Pros: Features, Easy To Use
Cons: Heavy, Bad Instructions

Harry,
Harry

Thanks for taking the time to review your log splitter, assembly can be difficult when the manual is not found or used. We have mounted the manual tube to the unit so it is always with the product. We have also added this question to the FAQ section on the YARDMAX site, here is the link: http://www.yardmax.com/support/faqs/
In our product testing we have not run into the pin breaking or failing. If you have any other questions you can simply give us a call at 847-327-0566 or email us at support@yardmax.com.

We hope your new Log Splitter brings you many years of use.

Best regards,

What A Beast!
Really happy so far. Have split for 2 days and no problems. I like the fact that it has a auto reverse where you don't have to hold the handle. I really like the round disc w the small wedges that holds log in place while splitting and adjusts to grain of log.

The only negative was the 4 way wedge is on smaller logs they can get wedged sometimes under it. Putting it together out of crate does require 2 people as per instructions.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality

Worth Every Single Penny
From delivery, to set up, to use, this splitter does not disappoint. This splitter is a heavy hitters. Once assembled I went straight to splitting logs I already had piled up.

I went right to the biggest diameter logs I could find. This splitter went through them with absolutely zero resistance. I'm more than happy with this machine.
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality, Price

Worked Perfect, Great Machine.
My first use was splitting a fifty foot tall hard wood tree with a 34 inch trunk base.
The splitter did a great job splitting the large logs. I easily towed the splitter with my ATV. I only wish I had purchased one years ago. The splitter worked perfectly with no issues. Cycle time is faster than most splitters.
Pros: Exceeded Expectations, High Quality, Fast, I'd Buy It Again

"The first log splitter arrived damaged due to the shipper stacking heavy object on top of the crate crushing the crate and damaging the motor. Replacement log splitter was shipped out very quickly and arrived in perfect condition.Great customer service."
