This cuts through hard to split green oak without missing a beat. The 5hp Briggs and Straton engine just runs at a steady pace no matter what you try to split. It has great fuel efficiency as well. It works well in both the horizontal and vertical positions. It tows easily as well. The 27 ton hydraulic system has all the power you need. Only opportunity I see is better assembly directions. You have to read a few times to make sense of them. Great machine though, especially for this price!
The item is great BUT BUYER beware, it is advertised with 2 year warranty ,,,,, this is false . When you get the item it is only a year from date of purchase been on the phone with several people on this subject. This is false advertisement if ever there was . My splitter has a sticking control valve. Everybody I have talked to tell me its only 1 year warranty. It clearly states 2 year in the PDF warranty about product . Talked to severalt that read the same warranty of 2 years. The sales receipt I have is to this model splitter the actual model no I have is a different model no. I believe that called bait and switch..
Best product for the price. Far exceeds expectations. Very fast and efficient way to split logs. Start easy every time. Run smooth and quiet.
