Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 58reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Needs better quality control Design is great (1 exception below). The work area is clear of obstructions, the engine and critical components are away from falling wood, valve is centrally located, splitter is well balanced for moving by hand.The first round of wood I split with is was one that I couldn't split by hand. Splitting mall bounced off of it, but this splitter went through it with ease in about 4 seconds. Since I am only retracting the ram far enough to put a round on the beam, the cycle time is about 8 seconds.Design exception: The eyelets on the wedge that connect to the cylinder are weak. I can easily see these pulling out when retracting, and expect I'll have to repair this some day.Quality control: The splitter ran for about 30 minutes, and 4 of the hydraulic fittings are already leaking. Not a huge issue at the moment, but they have obvious drips. I will likely need to disassemble the fittings and add hydraulic teflon paste.I also noticed that 2 of the hoses use crimped connectors while the others use cheap hose clamps. That is just plain lazy and sloppy. For this price, they should all be professionally crimped hoses. February 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This log splitter will split any kind of wood. This is one great log splitter, it will split hard or soft wood , has no problem splitting eucalyptus , oak , ash, jacaranda, walnut, some pine . I have split logs three feet wide with this tool ,what is so great is the nice WIDE splitting wedge , great for splitting green wood , I split all my wood when it is green so it will dry out faster. This log splitter has split wood for four winters for my family and a few friends , mostly stove wood. this tool is so good I peel the bark off eucalyptus and pine , a great tool! It is worth every cent I paid because I split wood alone at sixty years young. My grand son calls me super grandpa log man . May 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A quality machine We heat with wood as a second energy source. I've had the 27 ton splitter for two years and now it's time to offer a review for those shopping for a splitter.In my opinion this is the best splitter available for the price point. It's ruggedly made, well thought out and has more than adequate power with the Subaru engine. We've spit dozens of cords of red and white oak and the machine functions as it did from day one.There is nothing cheap about this machine.Change the engine oil every season and this thing will be around for your grandkids to use many years from now.It's a pleasure to own something that you know is well-built is a sea of poory made products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by With my 27 ton Ariens splitter, I get great production of wood with less effort I recently retired as supervising forester after 24 years in the forestry industry. living in the Colorado mountains I make the most out of saving energy costs, especially in winter. One way I do this is having a couple of wood stoves and an antique kitchen wood and coal cook stove. Cutting trees and splitting wood has kept me in shape, but those aches and pains from lifting the logs on the splitter sure slowed me down. Now that I finally purchased an Ariens 27 ton log splitter that has the horizontal and vertical option with a craddle, I get more production of split wood in less time with less back aches. I have found Ariens 27 ton to be reliable when I need it. It starts on the first or second pull, runs smoothly,and is extremely efficient on fuel. Than you Ariens for your great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great splitter Starts easy, tons of power, tows easy, moves around nice does not take up much room. June 30, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Runs great, has split everything. Split about 20 cords of wood a year and this one has worked great. I've owned it for one year. Engine starts right away. Ordered the tray to hold the pieces as I cut them. Only improvement I'd make is the tray should be standard and the stabilizing leg under the splitter end is kind of a pain to put down. I'll lose the main pin or cotter pin in the wood chips one of these days. June 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by A life saver I received several truck loads of green locust. I tried splitting there logs with a splitting mall and the wood just laughed at me and spit the mall right back at me. I purchased the 27 ton log splitter at Home Depot. This unit starts on the first pull of the cord and goes to work. I split over 20 cord of locust in no time. It even went threw logs that I had to use the bucked of the tractor to lift up onto the splitter. Nothing slowed this unit down June 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent piece of equipment The 27 ton splitter has more that enough power to split any logs that I have cut. Some pieces were up too 36" and there was no delay on the split. I am very happy with the speed of the machine for both splitting and resetting. An excellent value. June 19, 2013
