This Is The One To Buy
One tough splitter! Deciding on the type of splitter you want is the hard part. The vertical/horizontal boom is a good compromise. If you are splitting in the horizontal mode you will use your back a lot, splitting in the vertical mode you will find yourself on your knees a lot. However, other types are very slow on the small stuff and very expensive or awkward. This is a great compromise for the do-it-yourselfer, with the full variety of wood sizes to split.

Now, if you decided this is... more

35-ton
Order my yard max 35 ton on a Saturday and got by Thursday, but putting it together wasn't fun, it was just me and the wife. Other than that, it's a really great deal. Started right up with no problems, and works very well.

Great Log Splitter!
I have borrowed and rented many log splitters over the years and finally broke down and purchased one. This log splitter came ridiculously quick. Simple to assemble but it is very heavy. I would recommend a couple strong friends to help assemble. I have split many cords of wood with this already and it splits everything you throw at it. Starts every time and just keeps running. The 4 way splitting head and spinning foot plate are excellent features. Very well made and a great value for the size.
Pros: Durable, Features, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality
Cons: Heavy

Great Product
Five stars isn't enough for this machine! Nothing seems to stop it. Makes splitting much easier when it splits on the first try instead of having to realign the wood.

Great Equipment
Very impressed with the product. I was a little overwhelmed when I saw the box. Instructions were super easy, even easier after watching the video on the website.

The 35 ton unit is a bit heavy to just lift with one person, need to find another person to help raise the unit in the vertical position for use and save your back. Totally satisfied with my purchase.

Scott,
Thank you for the review, we are glad you like your log splitter. You definitely need two people to raise the beam to complete the assembly. Glad to hear you used our video to help see how the assembly goes first before attempting to assemble your unit.

Awesome Unit. Best Bang For The Bucks!
I recently purchased this unit after a long search for such a unit. I could not be any happier with the unit as well as the communication with the supplier. BEST in the business. This YARDMAX unit will stop at nothing. Easy to operate. I split a lot of wood of all sizes. It splits everything with the supplied four-way splitting head. I highly recommend this unit!

Heavy Duty & Very Powerful
Ordered this for my sons and they live it. Easy to put together if you have at least 2 people. Pulls kinda rough, but I expected that being it has no suspension. It has powered through everything I have put on it.

It did stall and was unable to split the big pieces with the 4-way splitter on it. I like the single splitter, because I can control the size of the pieces with it better. I recommend this log splitter to anyone serious about splitting a lot of wood.
Pros: High Quality, Durable, Exceeded Expectations, Easy To Use
Cons: Heavy

This Is A Very Good Log Splitter.
The splitter is an excellent machine for the price. It is capable of doing the required work with ease. The only problem I have had with the unit, was folding the stiff leg while picking up the tongue to hitch to truck ball. If I had the needed strength, it would probably not be a problem. I bought an adjustable folding tongue jack too install to solve this particular issue.
Pros: High Quality, Durable, Exceeded Expectations, Price
Cons: Needs adjustable jack instead of stiff leg

Highly Recommend This Unit To A Friend.
This beast did NOT disappoint! It walked right through tree crotches that stopped my friend's splitter dead. Assembly was no problem following YardMax's video. Took about 45 minutes with proper tools. I chose to use the synthetic motor oil for best year round performance.

Once the motor was oiled up, and 100% gas added, it started on the 2nd pull! The 4 way splitter adapter saved tons of time on 12 inch diameter and smaller logs. It worked on larger logs too, but I prefer the single... more
