Great machine, handles Tassie hardwood with ease. Easy to assemble and use. Manual leaves a bit to be desired however as the part designated as "Seal Washer 40x180-J" is in fact an oil filter and another part designated as "Oil Plug Bolt" is in fact an oil level gauge!!! But what the heck, it's got them which is ideal.

I had recently purchased a 5 tone electric log splitter from Bunnings . It was a joke.
The BBT12T has a lot of grunt. It has not failed to cut any logs I have given it.
I think more work could be put into the assembly instructions as some of the drawings are a bit challenging to understand. I think they could have some more zoomed photos, especially when you have to attach the hydraulic lines.
It took about 1.5 his to assemble and started first pull.
Very impressed with this machine.

Great machine, it split iron bark no problem at all some very gnarly pieces as well,I could not be more pleased with the results. Also the staff were fantastic, the girls in the office terrific as were the guys in the yard all in all a very good experience.

Have only tried this new purchase once so far but it has been able to split every size log I've put in . Plenty of grunt for the backyard operator and looking forward to having plenty of split firewood from now on.

I have tried this on all sorts of wood from the forest, it cuts like butter and saves me and my old shoulders from plenty of work, assembly was easy, took 6 litres of oil, started it then topped the oil to the required level, Best thing my husband has bought himself for Mother's Day this year, Thanks to the team at BBT

highly recommended - purchased this splitter after reading reviews on this site - and they were right. splitter does a great job - only problems i had assembling related to the hydraulic oil - i hadnt tightened the bottom hose connection nearly tight enough, so it leaked everywhere, and although the manual says the capacity is 8 litres, the filler started overflowing at about 6 litres. easily splits large 12 inch wide pieces of blackbutt trunk. only wood that has caused it trouble has been gnarled pieces of hardwood - other than that, goes like the clappers through everything i have thrown at it.

Excellent unit. I expect a few more sales when my mates see this thing in action.

ok, this unit is fantastic in general. Expect the guide bar to bend a little but do not stress it forms its own shape. The nuts hold on very well but do please check all parts are tight each time you use it. Its excellent for home use and probably commercial also, I didnt think it would be this good,splits tough wood well. The engine starts easily and has enough power, the only thing i would change is if i was able to afford the extra dollars i would of purchased 20 or 27 tonne unit,all in all im very pleased i would recommend it to everyone on a budget, thanks guys at BBT. Now just waiting on a couple more products i purchased ...
