  1. 5 out of 5

    I ordered the 35 ton splitter and recieved it 7 days later. I was not sure if I needed the 35 ton, but I had rented a 28 ton speeco unit which had some trouble with my larger wood, so I went with the 35 ton.

    It was very securely packed, and very easy to assemble – I did it by myself with no problems. Of note the engine oil capacity is closer to 37 ounces rather then the stated 40 ounces, so if one uses the full 40 oz it will be slightly overfilled. It is very convienant that the fluids are included.

    It is very powerful – it had no problems with the wood the speeco unit stalled on. It seems fast enough for me – I was a little concerned as it is about 20% slower then the 28 ton unit, but it seems fine, and I like having the extra power if needed.

    Overall I am very satisfied, and recommend this without reservation. It is very well designed and works well so far.

    Purchasing on woodsplitterdirect was simple, and easy – and Mark was very helpful. I would definately use them again.

    This item showed up in an unreal package. It was the size of a coffin. Uncrated and had it running in under one hour. It is a beast so have some help putting it together. Since getting it going we have split about 10 cords of hard wood and another 2-3 cords of soft wood. Nothing will slow this bad boy down. Goes through everything like a hot knife through butter.

    What it doesn’t split, it either cuts off or crushes into tiny bits.

    I have split about 3 cord of wood thus far, 28″ oak, 36″ maple, and 20″ birch using the 4 way splitter attachment. I only had one piece that exceeded the splitter’s capabilities and it was a really nasty 30″ piece of maple that was just a giant knot with grain going in every direction. I happened to place the wedge right where the grain tuned sideways under the surface, so I just turned the piece a bit and found a weaker cross section and the splitter powered through. This is my first splitter and have been splitting 5 cords per year by hand up until now, can’t believe I waited this long to get my hands dirty with a Dirty Hand Tools splitter. I am now splitting stuff that I would have just pushed into the brush pile I were still doing it by hand.

    Awesome product and Wood Splitters Direct was very helpful with my order. I have put only a few cords through the DHT 35 ton splitter and it has handled some very gnarly hedge wood and big pieces of unseasoned maple. This splitter doesn’t slow down. I will provide additional feedback as this splitter will see much work. I highly recommend the heavy 6ga side-table option as it makes the work easier. Looking forward to trying out the 4-way wedge as well. These splitters are available locally and from some trusted source. I chose Wood Splitters direct on their site and product information, and of course cost. I would do business with them again.

    This is the most amazing machine. It cuts would so easily. It went right through Locust which was 25-30 inch diameter with nots. Best spitter we have ever used.

    Purchased Dirty Hand Tools 35 ton log splitter on 3/28, was delivered at my house in a remote location in 3 days. Awesome, looking forward to setup and splitting wood this weekend.

    Thank you woodsplitter direct team.

    Purchased 35 ton Dirty Hands Tools logsplitter. Had it shipped to my cousins work where they had a towmotor. It was shipped on a wednesday and delivered on Tuesday. Minor assembly and it was off to the wood pile. Works great, went thru a 28 X 25 piece of oak in no time. Then we tried a knotty piece of ash and again no problem. It is a little slow, after using other splitters from a rental place, but realized that time was no longer an issue. Now we don’t have to work all weekend because we don’t have to return it. If you are thinking of buying a logsplitter, this is the one. A special tip of the hat to everyone at Wood Splitters Direct. I couldn’t be happier and thanks again.

    Great Product. I received the log splitter in 5 days from the time I ordered it, including the weekend. Took an hour with my 12 year old son to put together. Fast and easy. First day we split over a cord of pine and fur with no problems. I am seeing this as a major time savings and power house to splitting my fire wood.

    And the sale price beats the local big box stores.

    Thanks woodsplitterdirect.com I couldn’t be happier with this log splitter. I will highly recommend this site.

    Well, I would love to give a review on how well the splitter works, but it came with a leaking detent valve (the handle that operates the piston). So, I called e-mailed customer service at Frictionless World, maker of the Dirty Hands splitter, and promptly received an e-mail back from Brendan asking a question about where it was leaking and that if it was from the actuator, then the valve would have to be replaced. That was the case and on last Monday, he said that he would have it sent right out and I’d probably have it by Wednesday. I offered to do the work to replace it myself, even though he offered to have the work done somewhere.

    When it didn’t arrive by Wed., I thought it must have been delayed in shipping and asked for a tracking number. Turns out it wasn’t shipped until today, a week after we first talked, and they shipped it Priority Mail and I won’t get it until Thursday. Very lame. They screw up and then won’t spend a few bucks to overnight it? I just hope there equipment works better than their customer service!

    Dear Wood Splitters Direct, I recently ordered a Dirty Hand 35 Ton splitter from you. I had previously spent 26 days with a big box store trying to get some satisfaction concerning a wood splitter that I bought from them that needed repair. I finally got my money back and ordered the above unit from you on Tues. the 11 and it was delivered to a freight terminal near me on Fri. the 14. Not bad from Colorado to Washington State. I picked it up and assembled it on Sat. It was a slow process by myself with the aid of a small shop crane but not difficult. I have split 4 cords of wood and am very impressed with the machine. Thank you for your fast and painless service, knowledgeable Staff and excellent product.

    I had the dirty hand tools 35 ton log splitter delivered directly to my house. The splitter arrived unassembled in a large wooden crate. Everything seemed to be packed in there and secured very well except for the optional table/engine guard that I added to my order. It seemed that it was thrown on top of the hydraulic cylinder without being secured and without any protective barrier in between the two parts. This lead to damage of the paint on top of the cylinder during transit. The two hydraulic hoses were zip tied down so that they were resting against the fuel tank on the engine. This also resulted in damage to the paint on the fuel tank as well. I emailed dirty hand tools to tell them about this and received a response a couple days later stating that they would send me a free cover for my splitter and suggested that I go buy some touch up paint. He advised me to call him back directly to discuss anything further. I called and left a voicemail but never did hear back via phone… I finally got an email response about 10 days later saying that he will also send me a free t-shirt and hat for my troubles! It’s just dissapointing when you purchase something brand new to have it arrive with defects. It really didn’t begin to bother me until I’ve had three different friends point at the cylinder and ask me “what happened to the top of this thing?”… I’m now to the point where I have just given up with their customer service department. After reading other reviews I understand they have been great to other customers but this is just my personal expericence. Take and use this info as you choose. The splitter itself works great so far with no mechanical issues. Woodsplitterdirect.com was extremely helpful and very responsive to questions i had about the splitter prior to purchasing. They also stand by their price match guarantee! I recommend buying from this website regardless of what brand you decide to get.

    An update to my review of one star for customer service of July 24th. The splitter works very well now that the detent valve is working without leaking. It seems as fast or faster than the 28 ton (don’t remember the brand since it was borrowed) that I have used before. I love the 4 way wedge–well worth the extra money in my opinion.

    Excellent! Strong, and well built. GREAT customer service. I broke a small piece and they were so great to help me.

    Runs flawlessly, great motor! Get the four way wedge and bigger worktable. The four way wedge gives you the ability to use a two-way and a four way and it only takes a few seconds to change it. The original two way wedge you get to keep and put in a box.

    Received this 35 Ton Dirty Hand log splitter on 2-2-18. Packaged great/no damage. Assembly no problem had together in 2 hours.
    Filled Kohler 9.5 hp engine with gas and oil to start motor… no luck. After many pulls we came to the conclusion no gas was flowing to carburetor. Removed gas line from underneath tank and it was dry. No gas coming out of fuel connector under the gas tank. Removed the
    fuel connector from the tank and found it was completely blocked(fuel screen and outlet) with some type of putty which evidently is used in assembly. Could not even blow air through it. After cleaning/scraping this part with solvent we reinstalled on the gas tank, reconnected the fuel line and the engine started on first pull. See attached picture for part. This is after partially cleaning it. We contacted Kohler and asked for a replacement part and they said we had to take our Brand New Machine to the nearest warranty dealer which is 45 mins away. Not what you want to do when you have just purchased an expensive machine and have a huge pile of logs to split.. Luckily we got it running and the machine splits well! No problems there as it will power through anything you put on it. Just wish we could get better customer service other than disbelief from the Kohler people. They did not even want to see the picture. Maybe DirtyHands should use another motor on their splitters ??? 3 stars because of the motor issue/5 star for the splitting power

    I researched the various brands of Log Splitters’ and noted the Costco sells the 27 ton one on-line. I did further research and was lucky enough to find Wood Splitter Direct. I ordered the 35 Ton one on July 22, 2018, and within a week the wooden crate arrived undamaged and in perfect shape. Upon opening the crate, I was impressed by the packaging and the organization of the various pieces. It took about two hours to assemble, no problems at all.

    The Kohler engine started on the first pull and a smile came across my face. I could not be happier with the product but more importantly with Wood Splitter Direct.

    The “Beast” works great and I am looking forward to many years of service. I would recommend the larger table to protect the engine and I did purchase the four way wedge just for fun.

    Hi Wood Splitters Direct. Received my 35 ton Dirty Hands Splitter in good condition. Put it together and split a pile of wood with plenty of knots. Went through like butter. Thanks, Dirty Hands makes a great product with great protective packaging. Looks like it is over built, nothing skimpy about this model. Thanks, Mack

    Received unit in a timely manner. Was waiting on a Yardmax Half Beam on backorder. Watched a You Tube video on 22 ton unit assembly to get an idea of how to uncrate and assemble. Recommend pulling out the assemble instructions and following them next. Unit assembly was easy and quick. Did it by myself. 35 ton unit beam is a bit heavy. It took longer to figure out the assembly and mounting of the log catcher- could use some more detail here. Ran the unit for 2 days now splitting mainly oak. Handles it nicely. Had some hydraulic leaks within the first few hours of operation. Would recommend the factory taking their time to use the telfon or other sealers where needed and tighten clamps better. Otherwise love the performance of the unit doing its first weekend of work. Splitting some odd – trash cut up logs now with a few trees cut to nice sizes. Waiting to use the 4 way end when I have stack of nice consisted logs to splitter. Time will tell how durable this unit really is. Have a wood burner heating large house and large shed 30 x 80. Doing all my own cutting and splitting. We will see the value of this unit as the winter goes.

    Russ K. (Above) Nearing the two year mark since purchasing my 35T unit. Usually we hear reviews based on a short period of use. I wanted to add a review based on a couple years experience. I have put almost 40 cords of Doug Fir,Locust, Madrone, cherry and Maple through this machine. Zero issues! I changed engine oil after a break in period and once after a year using synthetic oli. I was not going to change hydraulic fluid because I have read that they really didn’t need it. I broke down and changed it and was glad I did as the filter had a lot of particles in it. Mine is stored in a garage. It still starts easily and is relatively quiet. Not all of my gas powered equipment has performed this well! I highly recommend this unit! RK
