Dirty Hand Tools Log Splitter - 25 Tons - 196 cc - 6.5 HP

Cutting wood logs can be a long and arduous task when done manually. Providing 25 tons of splitting force, the professional-grade Dirty Hand Tools log splitter slices quickly and without resistance any type of softwood and several types of hardwood. It includes an EPA / CARB approved, 6.5 HP 3000 Series Kohler engine and a 2-stage, 15 gallons/minute pump with 5-gallon operating hydraulic capacity. The 7" high heat-treated steel wedge and built-in cradle make it easy to split logs up to 25" in length. This rugged machine offers a fast 11.2-second cycle (down and back), and an auto-return valve with an adjustable detent that retracts the cylinder with a simple tap. This means that your hands are free so you can prepare for the next split or move other logs. For heavy and/or hard-to-handle rounds, you can easily switch from a horizontal to a vertical cut with the pull of a pin.

Dirty Hand Tools Log Splitter - 25 Tons - 196 cc - 6.5 HP is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 70.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Yes ... but ... Good product which I used for 21 hours over a week. Starts well and performs generally as advertised. But. After about 18 hours I got a hydraulic oil drip at one of the fittings in the 'detention or detent valve'. Then I noticed that the detent valve (the big piece that controls flow of oil into the piston) was not lined up with the piston ... off about 5 degrees or more. So I purchased the pipe dope they advised me to get, took it all apart, put it back together, and it still leaks. I'm returning it tomorrow. I'm going to take a chance on another one though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic little splitter, all I need. Got this on Black Friday and used it yesterday for the first time. Initially hard to start, most likely because I didn't see the on switch and flooded it! After that it ran like a champ, split for 90 minutes straight without a hiccup, still had lots of gasoline left when I shut it down. Writing this because it splits WAY bigger logs than advertised. I got through some seasoned oak that was 30 inches across. Yes, it took a few passes to get the sizes down to something usable but 25 tons was more than enough. Unlike some other reviewers, I had no leaks or other problems. Will it last longterm? Dunno but I bought an extended warranty so that is Lowes' problem!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 27 ton model great splitter, could not be happier. Just one issue. There is a fuel filter inside the gas tank that can't be accessed without removing the tank. I ended up cutting the filter off of the fitting and extending the fuel line enough to accomodate an external in line filter. Simple problem, simple fix. Runs great, no more starving for fuel and starts on one or two pulls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BIG LOGS BEWARE!!! You're about to be split!!!! This is a great splitter. I will destroy anything you throw at it. Plenty of power to get through even the knottiest, most gnarly cross grained stuff you can find. Cycle time is plenty fast enough to make quick work out of a pile of rounds. The only thing I wish was different was a log catcher. You can buy one afterwards but I wish it came with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes, I gave it a workout. I bought this log splitter after a lot of homework. There are many different splitters that cost more, a few less. I felt this was the best deal out there for the money invested. Then I gave it a workout. Roughly three cords of assorted wood and sizes and more to come. I split oak, maple, and some seasoned pine. Diameter sizes ranged from 6 inches to - get this- over 26 inches. And there have been NO leaks at all. When I was tackling the big wood, I just took my time and "sliced" it while it was set in the vertical position. I was grateful for that as I could not have lifted the wood to save my life. I still have Hurricane Sandy damaged trees that I could not cut down due to inability to burn some of it because of size. Now I can split it. Why pay for someone to haul it off when I can do it? And it is amazing how many people are willing to pay me to split some wood for them! As a semiretired person, a few bucks here and there helps.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Get a log catcher I didn’t realize how important log catcher would be until I bought this unit that does not have one. You have to be careful not to let split off pieces fall onto the motor, or your foot. When it’s in the vertical position it rattles really loudly. Needs rubber bushing in the hinge assembly. But it splits fast enough for me, no problem there. It’s as fast as a one man operation can keep up with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, but maybe too early to tell. Day one. I split about three cords of logs today, between the 10 to 30 inch range of thickness. Some was very hard wood: Black locust, oak, hickory, black walnut. I was very surprised that this small machine had no problem. It's relatively light. It's functional. It's efficient. It came assembled with fluids and was ready to go. It did start out with a leak, but I just tightened up the flare nut and it stopped. For it's first use, I could not be more pleased. I will update if I have trouble later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Splitter I have needed one of these to make life easier and finally had the cash to get one. Works like a charm and with all the normal features that make a great product. Split the KNOT filled Juniper Pine that grows on my property with ease. The only bad thing was the manufacturer leaves you a gallon of hydraulic fluid short after assembly and purging all the air out of the system, but any Auto Parts Store should have what you need in stock. I love My new Dirty Hands Firewood Splitter!!!!
