"If you are splitting any number of larger logs or those with knots in then I can not recommend this grenade highly enough. It works. For some tougher really twister logs you will probably find you need 2... or be very precise when using a maul in conjunction with this and a sledge hammer! If you reading reviews wondering whether they are worth it, just save your time and effort and just buy one now."
"Bought two of these, one as part of the Roughneck 3-piece set, and used successfully with the splitting maul on long (2.7m) logs c.300mm dia to split in half! Also use individually to split logs as per their designed use and can find no fault!"
"I am not easily impressed but I was with this product. It made splitting very large logs easy work. The log splitter took the full force of my 10lbs sledge hammer easily and just a couple of heavy blows later it split several 4 foot logs easily. I like to put this sort of kit to the test and it passed with flying colours. Already looking forward to using it again."
"So far only used on a piece of oak trunk (very hard and defied my other splitter) about 12" in diameter and about 18" long. Couple of taps with a club hammer to get it seated and then two swings of the sledge resulted in the trunk splitting cleanly. Can't think of anything better for the money. Can't comment on how well it will last but seems OK."
