Split about three cords with it so far,oak maple,ash,hickory,etc,etc. Only four pieces that it wouldn't split and they were all knotty crotch pieces.It seems to be well built with very little plastic.Two handed operation was a pain at first but now I don't even notice it.I built a stand for it to make it easier on my back.I got it at the sale price of 240 bucks and it is worth every penny.As usual great service from Princess,I ordered it online after 7 o'clock on Monday night and Purolater had it in my driveway by 10 am Thursday. As far as I'm concerned you can't go wrong.

I have had the 5 ton splitter for 2 seasons of use now and split logs from3" to 24" diam with no problems. It came on sale for about $200 and after the 1st season I bought the stand for it which made it less stressful on the back to use. It is a well built and rugged design piece of equipment that should last for years to come. Tip:- If you wait for the logs to get really cold (minus 10 - 40 degrees) they will slit with ease. Great bang for your buck.

Love it! Was the best $240 I spent. On my 3rd cord of wood so far. Birch, Maple, Spruce, and Fir, split every one including the notty ones, and I had some pretty big spruce junks! Would have liked the cutting wedge to be a little higher though as the bigger junks tend to rise up while splitting.

Overall pretty good splitter for this money . I have it for 2 years and it helps me to proceed 7 full cords for my fireplace. For the knotty wood you will need to try several times from different places until log will be done but it will save your back any way . Plastic wheels are cheap and you will brake them pretty fast but they are useless because you will have almost no flat surface outdoor . Check/add/change the hydraulic oil often because you will loose some amount each and every time from the bleed screw . Try to put the splitter on some high place or buy the stand for that - operating it on the ground will make your work less comfortable and your back will tell you that soon .

I have had this unit for a while, and have enjoyed using it every time, almost no issue splitting all my wood. The few things I don't like about the unit, it is hard to move with the small wheels and 2 metal brackets on the bottom that tend to hook into the ground if you don't lift the unit high enough, or when rolling over uneven ground. Also, the unit will tip over rather easily when you are moving it, since it is top heavy and the wheels are small and close together. The oil level dipstick is also a little difficult to undo, since you need to stand the unit vertically, balance it, and undo the dipstick with an allen key - I propped up my splitter against my shed, but even then, it was a balancing act. Overall, this unit is solidly built, strong when it comes to splitting wood, and I have no regrets in buying this unit (best when on sale or used from someone you trust). Although most people don't do this, do check the hydraulic fluid level after a few good days of splitting, since this unit, like many, will leak "some" fluid over time. For my own unit, I added red coloured fluid, ISO 32, since I mostly use it in the Summer and Fall - ISO 22 is recommended for Winter use, per the manual. Enoy!

I was skeptical buying an electric wood splitter but after watching the unit on youtube and the reviews here I took the plunge and am very happy with the results. I Split 3 cords of hardwood (Oak & Maple) with this unit, the largest being 14 inches in diameter without any issues. It seems really well made and it has an adjustable ram so you can adjust for different lengths of wood, speeding up the process. It powered through the largest pieces easily and only once did it stall but once reset, split the log. It's very easy to use. It would be nice if the stand was included but for the price I won't complain. I set it up on a sturdy folding table and it was at the perfect height for splitting. I thought it would be slow but very quickly that split pile grew. I was working alone but with two people it would go a lot quicker. I have another 3 cords comming of bigger wood but I do not think that it will have any issues. The only con so far is the fact that the wheels are so low to the ground that it catches things as you pull it along.

The unit works well with poplar but struggles to give a clean split with harder and knotty woods. The cylinder doesn't travel far enough into the wedge so you need to take up the space with a 4X4. The guide plate welded on to the cylinder is a little light and slightly bent on me. Their 4 ton unit has a much heavier guide and may be a better design. Still for $240 is a good value and princess has a great return policy if your not happy.

Q

Hi... I was checking the hydraulic fluid level on my splitter last night and did see the low and full level notches on the dipstick. Looking at the manual it does not say how much to add between the low and full levels, please advise. I want to have an idea what the ml volume was so that I don't overfill it and then have to dump the excess. Thanks...

The oil capacity of the log splitter is 2.4 liters . the amount of oil to add when between the hi/low markings are not listed, this is the safe operating level. Oil would be added is small amounts to avoid overfilling.

Q

I need to add oil as the log spliiter is starting to squeal when it retracts. I don't know how to get at the oil container. What kind of tool do I need to open it and does this does require a power tool? The manual doesn't help me with this.

You would need a #8 hex key, view the manual for information to add/change oil.

Q

Hi, just bought one of these..when unpacking there is a small metal piece included tucked into one of the styrofoam packing pieces. It's about 3 inches long, and an inch wide, is slightly bent on one end and has a small peg on it. there is no mention of this piece in the manual...what is is for and where does it go? Thanks, earl

It is a stroke control for shorter logs ,it will stop the ram from retracting entirely , it rests on the frame with the pin in the hole.
