  1. Magic splitting wood will be so easy

    Very happy with the wood splitter. BBT were great.

  2. Diesel Log Splitter

    It works a treat does everything I asked of it, the only thing I could complain about would be the assembly instructions missed a lot, the split pins for the axles didn't line up and the diesel engine is quite loud. Other than that it's great

  3. Great log splitter

    For anyone wishing to split firewood the easy way, this is the answer. The Diesel engine starts first time every time and uses very little fuel. Assembly was quite easy.

  4. Does the job

    Early days but so far so good. Engineering is better than the earlier models I have used. Splits really dry hardwood no probs. I dont need a longer stroke but if the splitter came up to the stop just a bit closer I would not have to tear off the splits on green woolybutt. But its no biggey.
    Diesel is a tad loud for the neighbours but to hell with those snowflakes, this is country life and this splitter did in two days what used to take me two weeks.
    So yeah, it works fine. I may add an after market hydraulic oil filter if I can find one. I think its a good idea to have one.
    Will the engine hold up long term ? I guess thats my only concern but what the hey, i can always run it off the tractor hydraulics if it shits itself.

  6. Diesel 40 hp log splitter

    Just began using my new 40T Diesel log splitter today, but first I had the exhaust directed 90 degrees as otherwise its straight into your face, kinda strange.

    Without too much effort that was completed and off I went, the machine runs great and its no problem with the hardest knurled stringy and iron barks. Splits easily even at a nice low to medium rev range.

    One of the other reviews commented on the actual travel of the ram, yes it could probably do with another 100mm or so.

    That aside very happy and impressed so far.

  7. Powerful Workhorse

    Good product easy to assemble, very powerful splits knots in wood no problems, it does need the stroke to be longer though to make it a really great product, that aside I am very happy with the log splitter.

  8. Good value for money

    I had a few minor issues early on after I assembled the unit, however the guys at BBTA were able to help me and get me going. The Diesel engine is a bit louder than I had expected but it does have the grunt to split very difficult logs. Also I would have preferred a swivel jockey wheel rather than the cheap version, but all-in-all it is very good value for money.

    We bought one last season and have had a good run with no problems after aprx 30 t of splitting. A mate up the road was so impressed he bought one also. Very impressed with the delivery .We ordered one day and it was here [to depot] the next day ! I couldnt have driven down to get it any quicker. Thanks BBT
