excellent value - splits even the toughest crotches

excellent value - splits even the toughest crotches - I have been using it for three years to split 6-10 cords of pine, white oak, red oak, sweetgum, and whatever else I can fit on the machine. I added trays on each side, a rolling swivel jack, and a drop down leg in the back. Reason being is if the log splitter is disconnected from the truck, and you roll a 300# log up there, you can flip the log splitter backwards onto the plate.

Note, like all vert-hort log splitters, if you are splitting vertical, you should disconnect from the tow vehicle.

A hose was damaged during transit, it was quickly replaced by the OEM with two phone calls, one to WSD and one to PB.

If you tow it to any real distance at any real speed (over 20 MPH) it probably would not hurt to swap the wheels out for a 4x4 hub and use wider tires. You really should not tow any log splitter like this over 35 MPH and go SLOW around corners so you do not flip them.

Only drawback to this machine is it has to be completely level or have the vent on the tank uphill or it will puke the hydraulic fluid $$ out of the tank. I just take along some 2x10 boards or slip a paver under the wheel to level it. I keep a short 8" magnetic level handy to make sure it is level or the vent-fill hole is slightly uphill

I had some doubts about a fabricated beam vs. a solid W beam, but, this has held up well to 22+" red oak rounds and gnarly crotches.

Great value for the money and I would buy again.

Hi John,

Great to hear you love your splitter! If the hydraulics are too full then they will vent and push fluid out the vent holes as it heats up etc. I think you will find if you lower the fluid level a bit you will not have that problem as much. Thanks for leaving the review.

Just assembled my new 37 ton splitter. I am very mechanically knowledgeable and I think the 35 or 45 minute assembly time is a little short but it is not difficult. Make sure you get at least 7 gallons of fluid. Used it a little bit and seemed to work pretty good.

Fantastic log splitter for the money. I split some pretty big stuff I was hesitant about trying and it had no problem. I saved money and no sales tax from my local supply store. Shipping was fast and received it with in a week.
