Pay attention to the fine print. Used to be Lifetime, now its limited lifetime, You need to keep your proof of purchase.
So I traded my old yellow handled Craftsman maul I've had over fifteen years because the head finally came loose. Sears did stand behind the warranty which I was glad to see. I had to drive over an hour to get another one but I guess you have to take the bad with the good. I used it yesterday for the first time and on the fourth log the head snapped off with no miss hits. I was so very disappointed. I guess I just expected another fifteen years. Definitely not the same Craftsman quality I'm used to.
This is poorly made, the head has separated from the handle twice on me. The glue/epoxy that holds the head to the handle pops out after a lot of use, then the head starts to slide off. First on the original I bought, then on the replacement. Also, where as I don't expect a shaving edge on this it is such a dull edge it is like hitting wood with a hammer. Got so frustrated with it, ended up buying a Fiskars 8lb Splitting Maul, triple the price but SOOOO much easier. I am mostly splitting oak.
Mail works but motor needs more power. LOL
Ordered placed 3 weeks ago. ?Had to call in to check status multiple times. I didn?t get a phone call or an email confirmation that item isn?t available. ? Rep said he?s going to cancel the order instead. ?What a waste of time. ?Definitely not pleasant shopping experience for sure
The weight was good at 6 lbs ,but the maul should have been a little sharper so it would penetrate and split the wood. As it is it bounces off the wood. So I will make it a little sharper and try it.
