Update, after splitting several cords of wood I'm very impressed. Handled 30inch fir butt cuts easily.
I would not hesitate to purchase this again. The Briggs and Stratton runs flawlessly and is much quieter than Honda. It comes with a big muffler and has plenty of power to split at half throttle without compromising speed, with no hearing protection required.
The Briggs is US made, not Chinese as some have stated.
The last two Hondas I've owned were not that great. One lost compression due to carbon build up on the valves due to bad valve guides, a very common issue on Hondas. The other blew the timing belt twice.
The packaging was ingenious and assembly was a breeze. Don't throw away the green shipping brackets, bolt one on at the real engine bracket to hold the 4 in 1 splitter head. (See picture)
The quality of this Yardmax is far superior to the junk ones I looked at in the big box stores...most had been returned for repair at a slight discount, no thanks.
I am a retired heavy equipment and hydraulic mechanic, so I have pretty high standards. Honestly I wasn't expecting this kind of quality.
All the threads for assembly were pre lubricated and the fasteners were decent quality. All the JIC to pipe fittings were nicely sealed with Teflon tape and nothing leaked. Don't let the half beam scare you, this thing splits with ease.
Cons: Stupid 4 way splitter head. If you are only splitting say smaller logs in the 12 inch or so range then it works great. I bought a 35 ton splitter because I split much larger wood. Not worth taking a star though because I will use it for the smaller stuff.
Another con would be the stand leg. This splitter is dang heavy and I am putting on a jack instead of the pivot leg. You have to tip the splitter all the way up so it rests on the back of the beam in order to pivot the leg up or down. Maybe some of you young bucks could hold it with one arm and pivot it but not me
Con #3 Silly log rest tables may look good but not much help holding larger pieces to one side while splitting others. Simple fix was a larger piece of plywood bolted to the table on the engine side.
Pro: I cannot state how important customer service is to me and I believe it is important to yardmax as well. They have gone far beyond what a company needs to do to keep me happy. Suffice it to say I am looking for a roto tiller and I am going to look hard at yardmax.
Pro: Goofy looking spinner plate. Believe me it works. Splitting some knarly twisted poplar and dang but the wedge was following the grain of the wood instead of trying to cut through the grain. If you have ever tried to split green wood with twisted grain you know how bad it is. This spinner dodad really helps.
Pro: Not sure if this should be a pro since I bought a 35 ton splitter but dang it has some mojo power and goes at it fast. My old splitter was a 22 ton that worked fine for what it was but this thing does not slow down and the ram travel speed it pretty fast.
Hope this helps some folks.
