Optional Cover: Protect your log splitter with a cover!  This heavy duty cover will keep your splitter out of the elements, and ready for work!  This log splitter cover is manufactured with PVC coated polyester to shield from water, UV, mildew and extreme temperatures. Made of a higher grade material than cheaper models and has draw string at the bottom to cinch up tight. Cover is optional for an extra fee, only available in black.

This will also help protect your engine from falling wood as well. Scroll through pictures above to see this optional table installed on a log splitter.

YARDMAX 25 Ton Horizontal Vertical Log Splitter (YU2566)

Needs improvement

Three things would make this log splitter excellent.

1. Giving us an adjustable jack OR a mount that makes changing the jack stand easy.
2. Raising the beam 6 inches- I am 6' tall and the work surface feels 6 inches too low, this hurts my back after an hour of splitting
3. Why is the wheel directly in front of the workspace? This creates an awkward work area and is in no way ergonomic - I'm sure you could have adjusted the beam farther back so the user could have clear access to the splitting area while still allowing them to reach the hydraulic valve.

Another Con is that my splitter arrived with peeling paint.

Other than that the cycle time is good and the engine starts on the first pull.

So for it was very easy to put together. I will try to start it up Saturday on 11/14/2020 I have a lot of log to split. I will write another review once I'm done splitting

2566 full beam

The staff was excellent when I was trying to purchase this log splitter because the one I ordered was out of stock. The only draw back is I needed a smaller truck with a lift gate to get to my residence and they sent a semi to deliver.
This product was easy to assemble and the directions were easy to follow but you need two people or a hoist to assist in assembly.
After I got it together, there were no leaks or any other problems. I've only had it 2 days.

Greater splitter with plenty of power

Greater splitter with plenty of power. I have gone through about a cord so far without any issues. I am very happy with the purchase. Plenty of splitting power.

So far it will split everything I throw at it

So far it will split everything I throw at it. Assembly worked pretty well using my tractor to lift the cylinder.
Hydraulics were pressurized when I got it, could not get it started. Moved the levers and it started right up. Came with all fluids ready to go.
Only thing is a weeping leak by the lever and the lift lock is tight and it's hard to go vertical to split rounds. But it splits rounds easily! Very happy so far.

Heavy Duty

I purchased my Yardmax 25 ton wood splitter late fall 2019. Delivery was exceptional. Due to the weight of the machine, assembly was a challenge (need 2 people), but instructions were spot on. I have purchased the longer log tray for over the engine protection, as the factory’s provided one is too short to keep logs off (one of two dislikes). My other issue is - no hydraulic fluid filter. Otherwise, this is a very well built machine. I have put it through it’s paces so far this year and it has operated very well. It starts fairly easy and fuel consumption isn’t bad. I am well pleased with my purchase.

This is my first log splitter ...

This is my first log splitter purchase and I couldn't be more happy. Once I got the shipment and unboxed the crate it took me about 1.5 hours to assemble (2 people are recommended). Instructions were nice and easy to follow. It's a very nice and sturdy product with some really nice fratures (log cradles, 4 way splitting head attachment) and I'm looking forward to years of splitting with ease.
