  • Divide your work in half with a 22, 27 or 34-ton Ariens Log Splitter. Centrally-located controls and an open operating zone allows for operation from either side of the machine. This significantly reduces the amount of bending, reaching and walking required by the operator resulting in less operator fatigue and more energy for splitting.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent value I looked around for a splitter and found this to be the best- I have the 27 ton model- it is well layed out and splits everything, I bought the log craddles and they are a great addition - they might be a standard feature now, if not get em April 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good machine over all. Control lever located so one man either side can use the splitter with out any problems. Engine starts easy and runs well. So far has split everything I've tried with out any complaints. Slight groan on some really hard gnarly pieces. October 4, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 Love it except for one problem. Splitting some cherry 21" long and the "stop" at the end bentsome. Anyone else had this happen? November 9, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good splitter except for the engine First time using it I split for about an hour and it worked great. When I went to start it again the governor gear went out. Took it back where I purchased it from and they said the part was on back order. Well its now going on 4 weeks later and they back ordered it again. Not happy. August 12, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Bought at Home Depot. Not set up like Ariens web site said. Hard starting even with fresh premium gas. Was not enough hydraulic fluid to even show on the dip stick. Had to make a run for some before I could even start it.Put in almost 2 gallons just to get it in between the high/ low lines. The tag on the vent said it should be checked and it could need up to 2 gallons. It was not the [ white glove set up ] that Ariens advertised. It does split well though. [ I hope it starts easier when it is broken in.] April 9, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by With my 27 ton Ariens splitter, I get great production of wood with less effort I recently retired as supervising forester after 24 years in the forestry industry. living in the Colorado mountains I make the most out of saving energy costs, especially in winter. One way I do this is having a couple of wood stoves and an antique kitchen wood and coal cook stove. Cutting trees and splitting wood has kept me in shape, but those aches and pains from lifting the logs on the splitter sure slowed me down. Now that I finally purchased an Ariens 27 ton log splitter that has the horizontal and vertical option with a craddle, I get more production of split wood in less time with less back aches. I have found Ariens 27 ton to be reliable when I need it. It starts on the first or second pull, runs smoothly,and is extremely efficient on fuel. Than you Ariens for your great product. August 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 27 ton log spliter I have Logged and cut wood for over 30 Years. this splitter i one of the best i have ever used. Stats easy runs very economically. and the splitter head design is very good and very efficient.its fuel consumtion is amazingly low. November 12, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by This log splitter will split any kind of wood. This is one great log splitter, it will split hard or soft wood , has no problem splitting eucalyptus , oak , ash, jacaranda, walnut, some pine . I have split logs three feet wide with this tool ,what is so great is the nice WIDE splitting wedge , great for splitting green wood , I split all my wood when it is green so it will dry out faster. This log splitter has split wood for four winters for my family and a few friends , mostly stove wood. this tool is so good I peel the bark off eucalyptus and pine , a great tool! It is worth every cent I paid because I split wood alone at sixty years young. My grand son calls me super grandpa log man . May 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A quality machine We heat with wood as a second energy source. I've had the 27 ton splitter for two years and now it's time to offer a review for those shopping for a splitter.In my opinion this is the best splitter available for the price point. It's ruggedly made, well thought out and has more than adequate power with the Subaru engine. We've spit dozens of cords of red and white oak and the machine functions as it did from day one.There is nothing cheap about this machine.Change the engine oil every season and this thing will be around for your grandkids to use many years from now.It's a pleasure to own something that you know is well-built is a sea of poory made products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great splitter Starts easy, tons of power, tows easy, moves around nice does not take up much room. June 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by A life saver I received several truck loads of green locust. I tried splitting there logs with a splitting mall and the wood just laughed at me and spit the mall right back at me. I purchased the 27 ton log splitter at Home Depot. This unit starts on the first pull of the cord and goes to work. I split over 20 cord of locust in no time. It even went threw logs that I had to use the bucked of the tractor to lift up onto the splitter. Nothing slowed this unit down June 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent piece of equipment The 27 ton splitter has more that enough power to split any logs that I have cut. Some pieces were up too 36" and there was no delay on the split. I am very happy with the speed of the machine for both splitting and resetting. An excellent value. June 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The ariens 27 Ton Log Splitter runs and performs as advertised. I have had the experience of splitting over four chords of wood sincepurchasing the Ariens 27 Ton log Splitter. The Splitter is operator friendlyand efficient. I highly recommend this product. June 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent product Purchased 27 ton wood splitter in May 2013. Split about 7 to 8 cords oak and pine. Starts easy, splits every thing I put in it, which included some real knotty oak. Ergonomic design is well thought out. It is made in America, aside from the 169cc Subaru engine, which has a five year warranty. You can not go wrong with this product. This is coming from someone who is a little OCD. June 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by ONE TOUGH, TOP SHELF SPLITTER Been working this splitter each day , 4hrs for about a month. The Subaru Engine just purrs and the ram does the rest. Splitting nothing but heavy oak and black walnut, it amazes me of the power this splitter produces, even with engine half throttle. Either horizontal or vertical positions same power is produced. The ideal location of the activation lever keeps you in a safe position left or right. It runs quite compared to some I have had and the large fuel tank lets you keep on going a bit longer. The well balanced machine is easy to move around by hand or lawn tractor. I did purchase the tray, predrilled holes already in place on machine. Makes things even easier. OORAH June 15, 2013

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 9reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 Fantastic Machine The Ariens 34 ton splitter went through wood which I could not split for over 5years with competitor's machines or any other means. I don't know the species of wood, but i was finally able to split it with the Ariens machine. It powers through white and red oak, maple, and anything else you throw at it.It's just not fair to the wood. It's worth every penny. February 1, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tough as nails Couldn't be happier with this splitter. Doesn't bog down on the gnarliest of wood and always starts on the first or second pull regardless single digit temps. The underrated Subaru engine is bullet proof and seems to out perform the more popular Hondas or briggs & Strattons. January 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by we love the 34 ton model it splits all types of wood from gnarley elm to box elder, some pieces were 30 inch plus wide, crotches weren't even a slow down for the son is always out in the woods splitting for us or friends, we split elm, box elder, ash, shag bark hickory and both red an white oak. we use to rent from hardware stores but they mostly rent iron and oak which does not split or trailer very well in my opinion. trailers so well you almost forget its be hind you except u don't go above 40 mph. should have bought years ago December 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid, capable splitter This splitter does what its marketing literature says. It hasn't failed to split a single log I've fed it, including pieces with severe knots. It slows down, but powers through every time. The Subaru Robin engine starts and runs flawlessly on regular non-ethanol gas. Note: Based on bitter experience I never use ethanol gas in small engines regardless of operator manual guidelines.I have one recommendation for Ariens: Please beef up the hydraulic oil filler cap/dipstick assembly. It is very easy to twist the vent cap right off if even minimal resistance is met when tightening or loosening the assembly. June 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great machine Good machine. The only problem was numerous leaky hydralic connections that were easy to fix. The manufacturer needs to have better production quality control, however, those problems are minor. The overall machine is great and a good value. June 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best splitter I've every used Ths is the best splitter I've ever run and I've ran a few over the years. I took it to camp as well as my neighbors and split alot of firewood and kindling. I ran premium gas in the engine and she purred like a kitten. If you are thinking about a splitter get this one and you won't be sorry! June 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly Recommend this unit Got the larger unit at my wifes suggestion and she was right. First the wheel on the drop stand allows you to steer unit on the ground for easy hook-up. The ease of vertical operation allows one to roll heavy wood into place on the ground. Works quickly and slows very little on the hardest wood. Worked so well I helped my friends with their pile of wood and they were amazed how quick we finished the job. Starts well and is quiet, I am very proud of my purchase. June 12, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ease of starting, power and ram design is great. I looked at splitters for many years...rented a lot. Finally decided to purchase the large Ariens splitter (my dealer didn't have the smaller model and made me a good deal on the larger unit). Very satisfied with the Ariens unit. Starts easy, hydraulics are smooth during operation, haven't heard the engine work hard yet and we have split some stubborn logs. In my opinion, it is worth it to spend a little more and buy the best.Also, trails very well down the road. June 12, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Had to return two of them First one lasted 2 hours. Valve failed and ram wouldn't reverse. Thought it was a fluke. Returned it and bought another identical one. After 1 hour pump quit and that was it for that one. Took that one back. Learned my lesson and bought high end with good warranty. At barely a face cord with two machines, I'd say avoid orange splitters. But maybe I got both bad ones. June 14, 2013
