    This splitter has exceeded my expectations. It fires right up and has ripped through everything so far. I’ve split about two chords of red oak and hickory (up to 18″ and some knotty crotch pieces). The splitter is very sturdy and appears to be well made. I really like that the hydraulic operation handle is on the top which allows for left-hand and right-hand operation in the vertical position. It also has a fairly quick cycle time that allows you to be pretty quick if you don’t return the ram fully each time. Assembly was straightforward and the packing was great (no damage upon arrival).

    Well, it didn’t take me very long to find the week link. I had issues with the stripper feature on the splitter since original assembly. Holes in the stripper did not line up to allow the bolts to pass thru freely. I got past that with what i would consider excessive force on the bolts to seat two of them and the hope of never having to remove them again. My letter to Yardmax basically was replied to as “thank you for your letter.. we have not heard of that problem before.. we will keep an eye out to see if anyone else reports that problem, all of our tools are tested and inspected before leaving the factory. Thank you for choosing Yardmax..”
    well, it’s remarkable machine. It doesn’t bat an eyelash at anything you throw it’s way. But the stripper is under designed and the very first piece of wood that followed the ram back started to jam underneath it causing it to bend. Lucky i had my hand on the lever and stopped travel quickly or it really would have been a mess. I hope to bend it back with a large C clamp because if they send me a new stripper part i will have to remove the bolts that i hoped i would never have to remove.
    Unless they re-engineer this machine with a stripper that just plain cannot bend, i cannot recommend buying this machine. Which is a shame because like i said earlier. It is otherwise a remarkable machine..

    I bought the ys2565 August 29th , I received it exactly when and how I was told it would be shipped. It came in well packed and with all parts included. I put it together with a little assistance from my wife following the easy institutions on YouTube. It fired right up and works Great! Thanks

    Bought this splitter not knowing what it would be able to handle. It split anything and everything I had, large and small. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a splitter

    Called Tues talked to Stacey who answered every question and ordered the 25 ton 1/2 beam splitter that afternoon. Splitter was delivered on Fri afternoon. Never had such a professional easy sale in all my 81 yrs . My son in law had the splitter running in less than 2 hrs. Took it to the wood pile and split 1/2 cord of red oak in about 1 hr. Cut thru the 20″ slabs like a knife thru soft butter. Great company, Great on line sales people. Great product. Total satisfaction with the sale and the splitter. Thanks

    Shipping was a bit of concern since I do not have a commercial address (even though I have a farm and forklift). Called my friend at the lumberyard a half mile from my house – problem solved. Arrived in a serious looking crate and then the fun began! Let’s just say that it is not a simple assembly, but with proper tools and some patience, it goes together nicely with good instruction. Parts and steps are well explained, even though there is a lot to do. I was quite impressed with the engineering that went into just the crating and shipping process. Holes were clean, lined up well, and assembly moved right along.

    Fired it up and ran through a bit of nasty twisted maple that I had unsuccessfully tried to split with a maul. I am still trying to get the grin off my face as the nasty wood was quickly reduced to “kitchen wood” for my wood cook stove.
