    Awesome piece of gear

    Easy to setup and does as great job splitting even horrible knotty wood.

    Beats the manual splitter

    Have used it and feel very comfortable with what this little beauty can split. Very easy to operate and handle.

    12/20 Horizontal Vertical Wood Splitter

    Easy assembly. Easy starting. For such a portable unit , splitting performance on a variety of wood, from knotted difficult pine, that jams the best hand splitter, even with a descent amount of muscle behind it; didn’t need much more than a fast idle; to dry as, various woods, and provided you place the grain with common sense and didn’t try going through the centre of a 500-600 wide bit that just fits up towards the Log guide arms, then the machine had no problem. Just take the ends off such a wide tough bit of wood to start. The handle is WAY to short for easy leverage and moving. PLEASE put one twice as long on it; really not thought out well; I’m making a new one as I bought this for it’s portability Vs power. If I wasn’t after moving it around constantly I’d have gone for more power so wood placement wasn’t as necessary.

    good service

    Not a fan of the vertical operation which is what i bought it for , however the 45deg is good

    Got what I paid for

    The 45 degree option is very handy. Would recommend this machine for the weekender. Haven’t stumped it yet and tryed it on some notty hardwood

    Value for money

    The only slight criticism is the assembly instructions. Once together, it started after a couple of pulls and ran like a dream. It certainly performs well on all timber. I originally thought I needed a larger machine, but after trying timber on the smaller machine was happy and confident to down size. The staff are very helpful. All in all a great experience

    Genuinely fit for purpose

    PROS Solid build and a huge time saver - put a whole woodsheds worth through in 3.5 hrs. Won't ever need to manually split wood again. Multiple/flexible positioning is great. Personally found diagonal working best for me. Fuel efficient - ran over 3 hours on a single tank at 2/3 throttle CONS Assembly instructions and operators manual are adequate (just) Without seeing/testing I cannot say for sure but I am doubtful about the claims it will handle iron bark or yellow box. I'm running red stringybark and ribbongum, both of which are far from the hardest/densest woods going and it failed on a couple of larger rounds, even on full throttle, so anyone wrangling those extra hard timbers might need to go up a notch or two to 16 or even 25 tonnes

    Very good machine

    Tried a 6 tin electric. Took it back to store due to valve issues. Saved up the extra to get the BBT 12 ton, and there is no comparison. Running it on about half throttle it splits everything the electric could not. Uses very little fuel for the time I spent splitting. Found a new use for the splitting block; sit on it with the ram on 45 degrees and the job is so much easier. I only burn hard wood, and this compact machine is brilliant for what I throw at it.
