A few shortcomings

,
August 16, 2015
By
from W.Va.
" I've owned one of these splitters for about 10 years or so.
It is a hard working machine. The only issues I've had were. The wire harness for the light hook up is too short. Had to splice slack in it. The other is West Virginia is generally not flat. So I took the jack stand off, and drilled additional holes on a two inch spacing. This allows me to level the machine on slight inclines. I'm also going to weld an addition piece of steel on the lift to prevent shorter logs from falling through.
I'm glad to see they're now putting a steel fuel tank on them. Mine is plastic and is about worn out.
Overall this machine is a durable workhorse. "

yankee log spliter

,
February 22, 2009
By
from Savannah, GA
" My partner and I split 80 to 100 cords a year, for the last 4 years, all oak.
We call it the Yankee log splitter, it just keeps on splitting, it cuts, it splits, slices and i think it dices, but we didn't buy that Accessorie . It don't take no sass from no southern oak, forks, knots. What it don't split it just cuts through it. it splits live oak like it was water oak. Customer are ways asking how did you split live oak, we lie and say we did it the old fashioned way, by hand. Best of all it sure does take a lot of hard work out log splitting, and the 2 of us are over 65.
