Optional Cover: Protect your log splitter with a cover!  This heavy duty cover will keep your splitter out of the elements, and ready for work!  This log splitter cover is manufactured with PVC coated polyester to shield from water, UV, mildew and extreme temperatures. Made of a higher grade material than cheaper models and has draw string at the bottom to cinch up tight. Cover is optional for an extra fee, only available in black.

Optional Log Table: This optional add on durable steel table replaces the engine side log catcher. This will add valuable work space that measures 34" long and 12.5" wide. This will also help protect your engine from falling wood as well. Scroll through pictures above to see this optional table installed on a log splitter.

So far so good!

Just finished splitting my first cord of oak logs. Took about 6 hours to split and stack. Operation is quick and easy. There was some strain cutting through the heftiest knots, but it only slowed it down a bit. The machine is heavy. Moving it around isn’t easy alone. I put it on the ball of the lawn tractor and left it there during the work. I have no reason to believe that this thing won’t last a long time!

Straight forward

Delivery was fast, although the crate was damaged in shipping, the contents were fine.
The assembly went fine, but I recommend that you have some strong help if you're not sure you can do the heavy work.
The splitter worked as advertised.

YARDMAX 25 Ton Horizontal Vertical Log Splitter (YU2566)

Log S.L.
Needs improvement

Three things would make this log splitter excellent.

1. Giving us an adjustable jack OR a mount that makes changing the jack stand easy.
2. Raising the beam 6 inches- I am 6' tall and the work surface feels 6 inches too low, this hurts my back after an hour of splitting
3. Why is the wheel directly in front of the workspace? This creates an awkward work area and is in no way ergonomic - I'm sure you could have adjusted the beam farther back so the user could have clear access to the splitting area while still allowing them to reach the hydraulic valve.

Another Con is that my splitter arrived with peeling paint.

Other than that the cycle time is good and the engine starts on the first pull.
