Perfect for down sizing split wood Review by Rob
Quality
Price

Fast shipping ordered on a Friday and UPS delivered on Wednesday. Box was pretty rough shape chunks of cardboard missing but item was in good shape with no missing parts. Real easy to put together with included manual. This has plenty of power I split a 21 inch long chunk of hackberry that was about six inches wide. This wont replace a gas powered wood splitter but if you have some chunks that wont fit into the stove door its a time saver. Plus you can get a little workout. Thanks Ruralking for a great sale on my first order.

Excellent product for the price, Great Customer Service Review by Dave

The original hydraulic jack was not operating properly but I struck a deal with customer service for a partial refund for enough $$ to purchase a replacement jack locally rather than dealing with the time and expense with having Rural King replace it.
**** Note: every time I've called Rural King with questions, as well as discussing this issue, I've spoken with a REAL, knowledgeable and helpful person, with no waiting, and prompt email follow ups. In comparison to other companies, this has been an exceptionally pleasant on-line shopping experience. ****
With the compatible replacement 8-ton jack I installed, it works perfectly. Prior to this, I had to put a lot of elbow grease, arm and back into splitting a single 20-inch diameter seasoned oak log with the axe/maul/sledge hammer method. I can do it in about a third of the time and less than a tenth of the effort. Bear in mind, it's not "fast" - you're not going to go into the firewood business with this for a splitter - but that's not what it's made for, hence the low price. I'll probably still manually split the stuff smaller than a foot across but it's sure coming in handy for bigger ones.
It's easy to manipulate and move around and it looks to me like it's hefty enough to split as big a log as I can pick up and put into it, and as many as I'll ever care to (and I'm in pretty good shape for a 63-year-old.)

Functions OK but could use some improvements Review by Kevin Richards

Wasn't long before the relief valve stud in the foot pedal sheared off.
I would not use a soft steel screw but a hardened roll pin to hold the pedal on. Simple fix to make it last. Other than that. works fine. I let my grandson work out with it.

Useful For Limited Splitting Review by Michael

I purchased this item solely to further split occasional pieces of firewood stacked in my woodshed, either some of the pieces in the pile were a bit oversize, or I needed smaller pieces for kindling. For that application, where one does not have room (or inclination) to swing a maul, this item is ideally suited. Unless you are Sisyphus, you would not attempt to split your winter wood pile with this device - it would be painfully slow, and it would be the following spring before you were done. It is ruggedly constructed and works well for my application.

The hydraulic jack pressure release has a spring loaded foot pedal return that is intended to seal the jack automatically for the next split. Do not expect the spring to completely shut off the valve when you remove your foot. You will want to nudge the release pedal upward with your foot, otherwise you will be performing many extra pedal strokes for the next split.

I'm quite happy with my purchase based on my intended use. Just don't expect to process a lot of wood with it or attempt to split large rounds.
