Product Description

No Sales Tax! (Most States)

This Brave VH1724GC 24 ton log splitter that has the convenient option to split Vertical and Horizontal. The orange powder coated wood splitters were designed with durability in mind.

The VH1724GC comes standard with the Honda GC160 engine. We also have this same log splitter with a Honda GX160 commercial engine.  You can see that Brave log splitter VH1724GX here.  The log splitter has an average 14 second cycle time, which is a great combination for both speed and power.

Log Cradles (Included) - HV units catch falling wood saving you from bending over and picking up split wood off the ground and splitting again.  Just imagine the amount of extra times you could save from bending over picking up firewood to split again from each cord of wood?


Log Splitter Cover - High quality log splitter cover with draw strings to protect your investment from the elements.

Engine Guard - Protects your engine from falling logs.

Fender Kit - Add a fender kit to help spraying debris during transport.

Race R. (Troutville, US)
Made the right choice.

I did a lot of research on gas powered residential splitters. I ultimately landed on Brave/GNE because of their reputation - and the fact that they were one of the few American manufacturers I could find still selling residential line units with the Honda engines. Woodsplittersdirect processed my order quickly and got the unit to me in right at a week.

Assembly was pretty painless but definitely a 2-person job unless you have a pulley system set up for the lifting parts. All in all, it took two of us about 4 hours to assemble. Had one issue with a minor hydraulic fuel leak from one of the valves. I contacted GNE (manufacturer) support who was outstanding to deal with - Overnighted me a replacement fitting/o-ring, and I'm off to the races. Being able to talk with someone to troubleshoot and then receiving the parts so quickly makes a world of difference in my book.

This unit runs like a dream and has not faltered on the cord of wood I've run through it so far.

As others have said: Brave has this business figured out.

Hi Race,

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Brave and Iron & Oak are defiantly a top notch manufacture. Happy to see you love your log splitter and hope it brings many years of trouble free splitting for you. Please let us know if you need anything!

More than Some Assembly

Had to assembly everything connect the hydraulic tank, the motor, all hydraulic hoses all with no instructions. As far as the Honda Engine Awesome

Hi Michele, These do ship in a crate and assembly is required. Instructions are tucked away in the plastic tube. Sounds like you got it assembled? Just let us know if you need any help.

Thanks, WSD
