Assembly: Didn't have much issue. While running the third day the return hose popped off and pumped out 2 gallons of transmission fluid before I got it shut down. Be sure to get that one tight. Filled it back up the next day and no problems though I did keep a close eye on it. The package weights 600lbs. The I beam is heavy and you only have to stand on end but recommend 2 people for assembly. Watch out for the wedge sliding down when you stand up on end.
Towing: The product says 45mph. Not on the roads around me. Too many pot holes... I have very little experience towing landscaping trailers. I thought maybe I could tow when I cut wood now I am thinking it wont leave the house except for short trips and never on the interstate but I am conservative. A rough road at 35 is stressful. I did have to tighten the nut on the bottom of the splitter for a better fit on a 2" ball.
Operation: I do most of my splitting with my teen daughter. The table is handy but could be bigger which leads to the biggest annoyance with the product. When splitting horizontal the table rattles like crazy when I don't have any weight on it. I haven't tried re-tightening screws yet as I have only had the product almost a week. I split over a cord of tough wood this week. It made it through every piece. The most difficult was a piece of white oak Ø40" with a fork about 16" long. It was not fast but it pushed through. The gas tank on the motor is small and needs to be refilled maybe every 1.5hours. I prefer to split horizontal but be careful with large logs will lift the tongue.
Optional 4-way wedge: The manual says to only use in horizontal position. This may work great if your wood is all the same size but much of the wood I was splitting varied greatly in size so I seldom found myself reaching for it. If the wood I were splitting was all 10-16" I may leave it on the whole time. I was able to hold the up wood a little bit to better center the wedge until it hit the wood. I haven't decided if it was a good purchase yet.
I love this log splitter. I stored it with an empty gas tank and 3-4 pulls to get it started. Then first pull every time. I just towed it about 15 miles with no issues. It makes a big difference when the roads aren't riddled with pot holes. It splits plenty fast for me. I couldn't be happier with this splitter. Just towed to a friends place and split a cord of wood. Most of the pieces were black walnut 2-3ft in diameter.
Assembly was easy for one person.
engine started right up.
One mistake in the directions was they stated it needed 5.5 gallons of Dextron/Mercon but I needed a case...got it from Sams club ..I was able to return the other case.
My unit was an older model..the newer model looks like the hydraulic tank is larger.
