It looks good and is heavy but easy to move with the wheels. I've encountered a couple of forked heavy pieces that were too tough to split but 98% of everything I've put in it splits easily. Wow.....what a nice tool!! I couldn't be more pleased. My garage is fairly crowded but the vertical storage feature is ideal to save space. I Highly recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the cost and home use. Not 5 stars for 2 things. Small one 1st, the workmanship is a bit crude. One leg is 1/4in longer than other, so it sits slightly not level and one wheel is very slightly crooked, neither of these effects operation though. 2nd one took me a min to figure out and was a big deal. It wouldn't retract after a split. At least it wouldn't quickly, it took like 3min after every split to return to start position. Obviously this made for slow work, until I figured it out. Added a picture in case anyone else had same issue. I had to loosen the black nut on opposite side of spring 'button' 1/4 turn.(21mm if I remember right) The spring wasn't popping out after a split. Once I loosened that nut, it works perfectly. Best guess, someone in factory didn't pay attention to their torque settings. Other than those 2 things, works like a champ. Had to take down 3 trees(18-24in diameter) and has been splitting them without issue. Saves a ton of time and effort for the cost. I'd recommend for home use, probably not up to lawn care/landscape business use, but good enough for use around the house.

The first one we got didn't work, would not split even the smallest log. We returned it to the store which was easy and they ordered another which worked great.

I have mine powered by a portable generator at a cabin. Generator has to be at full speed as the splitter has a starting surge over 20 amps, and then settles to about 18 amps draw.

I could not find one, but it fit well on my portable, folding workbench. It is over 100lbs, however, so be careful lifting it up.
