*Not For Sale in CA*

This Brave Pro VH1737GX 37 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 VH1737GX comes standard with the Honda GX270 engine. 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?

Options: Drainzit Oil Hose Kit - Drainzit oil hoses make changing oil easier and cleaner! Drainzit oil drain hoses allow you to change the oil in your small, gas-powered engine without tipping, dismounting, or modifying your engine in any way.

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

Excellent Purchase!!

I couldn’t be happier with my new Brave 37 ton splitter!!! I put it together by my self in a couple of hours, the directions were great!! I recommend using a chain hoist suspended from a beam, I used two 4x4’s on top of two eight foot ladders. This enabled me to pick up the ram safely by self and get it ready for installation. I also found using a floor jack help in raising the tank and axle section up to the pin hole on the ram assembly.

As for operation I have been splitting oak logs over 36” in diameter with ease!! I love it!! And when I had a question about the operation of the machine I called Brave and got the right answer in five minutes.

When you compare this splitter to the common Chinese imports you’ll be very happy when you buy a made in America Brave splitter!!

Great splitter

Well built splitter. Took about two hours to put together. Did 4+ cords over a week. Split logs that needed a two person lift that were 20” long with no hesitation. Would recommend engine guard.

37 ton assembly

I just received and assembled my brave 37 ton log splitter. By far the best and easiest step by step instructions for assembly of a log splitter. Topped off the fluid’s and two pulls of that Honda engine and boom I’m splitting wood 🪵.

Hi Brian,

Brave makes great equipment as they are well thought out (some with instructions!). Thanks for the review.

Bobby D. (Broken Bow, US)

I am very pleased with my Brave 37 ton wood splitter. I believe I chose the best one on the market. I’ve been splitting oak and hickory logs with no problem at all. The Honda engine is strong, quite and very fuel efficient. I think an engine guard would be an essential accessory that I’ll be installing soon. I also plan to install a wheeled hand cranked jack.

Hi Bobby,

Glad to hear you love your Brave log splitter. Both Brave and Iron & Oak log splitters (sister company to Brave) are fantastic machines. We appreciate your business, please let us know if you need anything else.

Brave 37 ton splitter

This log splitter is better than I expected. I did purchase the engine guard not realizing it protects the engine from the top. I think it would benefit from some sort of skid plate to protect engine,hydraulic hose and hydro pump and filter. I reviewed about every splitter on the market and finally chose this one. I am not disappointed.👍🏼

Order was incomplete

Splitter came incomplete without the ordered wheel fenders that were supposed to be in box. Were listed on the packing sheet with splitter but no where to be found. Splitter took awhile to assemble, but is a very quality product. Just wish order was fulfilled correctly as described. Stacey was pleasant to communicate with and got back to me fast
