The Dirty Hand Tools 27 Ton Gas Log Splitter is something that you just don’t want to live without if you split your own firewood. Whether you are using it to heat to your home or just splitting firewood for whatever reason. It has a 6.5 horsepower Kohler motor made right here in the United States and there are a ton of other features that make this the log splitter that you don’t want to pass up.

Built-in Log Cradle

The 27-ton Dirty Hand Tool Log Splitter includes a built-in log cradle. This is valuable for you when you are using the splitter in the horizontal position. This is a nice feature that you actually don’t find on a lot of splitters out there on the market. What is so great about it is that when you have those bigger logs on here and you split them into two pieces, that first piece is going to land on this cradle and stay right there. The other piece you can set aside and then easily grab the piece off the cradle and set it right into place. You will not have to lift anything from the ground so it helps save your back. It just keeps your logs easily located and prevents that bending over every few seconds to pick up another piece of wood.

8'' Wedge and Foot Plate

Now let’s talk about the part of the 27-ton Dirty Hand Tool Log Splitter that is actually doing all the work and that is going to be your wedge and your foot plate. The 27-ton Dirty Hand Tool Log Splitter has an 8” wedge as well as an 8” foot plate. That 8” foot plate is actually very nice because it gives you a large area for your logs when it is in the vertical position. It also creates stability in the horizontal position so the logs are held in place while your wedge is splitting the wood. It has a very narrow designed tip and then it increases about an 1.5” and stays that thickness before it expands out. This is going to help it be a lot more powerful and penetrate further into that log before it tries to split it, making it that much faster.

Easy to Transport

When it comes to transportation the 27-ton Dirty Hand Tool Log Splitter is just as convenient. It has a hitch on the front of it that will accept a 2” ball. It also has the required safety chains on it so you can hook it up to your truck and pull it down the road. The 27-ton Dirty Hand Tool Log Splitter does have D.O.T. approved tires on it as well. So you can pull it safely at slow speeds around whether you are just pulling it around the job or towing it to the next place where you are going to use your splitter.

Horizontal and Vertical Operation

There are a couple nice features about the 27-ton Dirty Hand Tool Log Splitter that make this vertical part of the splitter safe and easy. The 27-ton Dirty Hand Tool Log Splitter is balanced very well. So when you lift it into that vertical position you can tell that you are controlling the motion, it is not controlling you. It lifts up very slowly and lets you control how fast it is going to lift up. There is also liberal space between the frame and the handle that you use when switching positions, which helps prevent you from smashing your fingers when you return it to the horizontal position. It is so simple to change positions, use the easy quick release knob, one pull and then you just lift it right up into position.

Hydraulic Oil Filter

The 27-ton Dirty Hand Tool Log Splitter also has a hydraulic oil filter which isn’t a common feature on many splitters. The filter is going to help increase the longevity of your hydraulic fluid. It also has a clear hose that lets you see the actual hydraulic fluid that is in your unit. That will help you to make sure you are not having any bubbles in the fluid which can be a sign that you have operating issues. It is also going to help you see and maintain the quality of the hydraulic fluids. When you start to see that nice honey amber color turning into a darker sludgy color you know it is time to change your fluid.
