This is a great machine! I really do like spending some time splitting wood to keep the family warm during winter. I do agree with the other reviews mentioning the front front leg, however I have added a jokey wheel to my splitter for about $100. It was easy to do (required making a small plate and doing up 4 bolts) now I am thankful it has a slightly shorter leg as its easy to wind down onto the leg for more stable splitting. The motor on it is top notch, arguably as good or better than the Honda. Travel speed of the splitting head is really far above anything else I have used and saves soooo much time. Under heavy work load the unit does get quite hot, but by I use this as a good excuse to stop for a cold drink or coffee :-) We did have a small issue with the unit shortly after we purchased it and the after sales support was excellent! For the price of the unit, it defiantly punches above its weight. For anyone looking for a great splitter that can really get though that toughest stuff (I have split 50 tone of redgum and Malley root) then I defiantly think this is the one to get. If I daid $6k for this unit it would have got a 4 star review but for the money its a 5 star from me! One last tip for anyone looking to purchase one of these units is do your maintenance, its a machine a little TLC will be worth your while.
