John, Macclesfield good but watch switch

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
strength of the machine very solidly built particularly tne cylindrical frame
Bad points:
switch has a very cheap plastic holding ring and when this fails as it did the switch falls into the body making it difficult to operate and potentially dangerous. Repair difficult and only possible if electrical spares available.

Staran, Solihull West Midlands Wood burners the way

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
It does what it say's on the tin, absolutely fantastic piece of kit, highly recommend it - plus it gets you out the house to de-stress!!!
Bad points:
Shame you have to use both hands to operate as it neccessary sometimes to square the log prior to splitting, however, I am sure this is a safety feature. Too low to the ground it would have been better to have had removable legs to operate at standing hight. Although get yourself a low stool - problem solved. 5 ton would have given it a little more grunt on those big pieces of oak

Ian, Oxford

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Splits all but knotty wood. Very effective. Fairly compact and easy to transport. Quality seems good.
Bad points:
Needs quick operation to prevent full retraction during use. Could be quieter, but I have no reference to other log splitters to know if this is better/worse.

Bob, Godalming

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Easy to move and use
Bad points:
Two hands are required for operation. Clearly this is a design feature however it does prevent you holding a log whilst you operate the ram.
