      First the bad. The only thing I didn't like was it was harder to assemble then I though it would be. Takes multiple tools and they could have done a better job assembling more parts at the factory. Buffalo tools isn't a super well known name, I have one of their generators and it runs like a top so I thought I would give this log splitter a shot. I'm trying to make this short as I'm busy right now but thought giving an opinion might help others considering this product. It is very heavy duty, I've split large logs with knots in them. Just use your head and don't over do it. But it does split large logs. BTW, I removed the 4 part splitter for this so there was less stress on the ram. This worked r eally well The engine pretty much starts on the first pull, even on the first try. The only time it hasn't is when I forgot to turn the fuel on. It's a little heavy to pull around so I spent $50.00 for a pulling dolly on E-bay. After using this product for awhile I get the impression that it's built to last. I was going to spend a bit less for a 22 ton but I'm glad I spent a bit more for a 30 ton. I don't usually do reviews but I think this product was worth it. Hope it helps. Oh ya, on the website it says the warranty is one year but it comes with a warranty card that says 60 days. It is one year, I called to make sure.

      Pros Easy to Use, Accurate, Good Size & Weight, Durable, Powerful, Great Engine, Long-Lasting Cons instructions a little hard to understand
