Best splitter money can buy.

Prior to buying I did a lot of research, read a lot of reviews and watched a lot of Youtube videos. I found that Yardmax offered the best value amongst all the other brands. My experience has been very positive so far, purchasing off of Woodsplitters Direct was simple and easy and shipping was hassle free. The unit arrived in less than a week and overall was fairly easy to assemble. It is a solid machine all around except for the kickstand, which every other reviewer complains about. The engine fired right up the splitter handled everything from "green" oak and cherry to seasoned walnut and maple without missing a beat. I was disappointed with the fact that my unit didn't come with the 4 way splitter as many other reviewers had and when I contacted Yardmax regarding this was told that the part has been recently discontinued and is no longer available, not even for additional purchase . Overall I am satisfied with my 30 ton half beam splitter and would recommend Yardmax and Woodsplitters Direct both to anyone that asked.

The log splitter itself is quite strong and works well

The log splitter itself is quite strong and works well. It looks great, performs great, and splits fast with a lot of power! Assembly was pretty straight forward with just a few quirks. The 4 way splitting head is fantastic! I have been splitting Ash trees for a while and this 30ton splitter cuts through them without any issue. Overall, I am happy with my purchase and would recommend to others.

Why 4.5 stars:
- One of the 6 bolts on the log stripper was not tapped well and I had a difficult time getting it in without stripping the hole. I was able to get it threaded and tight eventually, but it took some work. Hole with the issue was engine side lower left (closest to the engine and hitch)
- The roll pins are incredibly difficult to install. I began bending the pin when tapping in the roll pin next to the spring. The pin inside the kickstand is nearly impossible to install and at this point I have not been able to get it in, but it doesn’t appear to impact function.
- The kickstand is a bit unstable and makes me nervous. I plan to get an aftermarket jack stand with a wheel for easier and safer maneuvering.
- The assembly step for elevating the splitter high enough to install the wheel/axle was difficult. I ended up adding blocking on one side to give me more clearance to install the 2nd wheel. I would recommend having a 2nd person for this part just to be safe.

Overall it is a solid machine and very powerful. I'm happy with the purchase!

I’m impressed with the power and ease of use

I’ve had my 30-ton half beam yard max for a week and have split over 2 cords of wood so far. I’m impressed with the power and ease of use. I am glad after reading reviews I chose this splitter. The assembly instructions were not perfect but better than I expected. The 4 way splitter head is ok on small limb size wood but just makes a mess on larger pieces. I’ve resorted to just using the default wedge rather than stopping and changing the head.

This is a great machine. I ha...

This is a great machine. I have just received it and assembled. A new Briggs Professional engine, with a great warranty, I look to many years of spitting and making a lot of campfire wood, as we are looking toward retiring.
Pros: Very well built and a strong splitter. Love the 4 way and the ease of splitting large pieces of wood. An Awesome Engine that starts easy. Great design for easy maintenance. I do thank Yardmax for sending the proper oil for it. Logsplitters direct was great to deal with and shipping was fast and the drop tailgate was a must. The driver wheeled it into my driveway so I could get get started to assemble quickly.
Cons: The instructions that came with the unit were for the full frame splitter. I am 73 years old and could not assemble by my self, so I called for helped. The front leg is not easy to work with. I went to harbor freight and got a crank up jack that works great.
I saw on youtube a two wheeled dolly to move it around, so a got one and that is also recommended.
Bottom line WOW WHAT A MACHINE!!!!!
