I would say the biggest plus to this is the fact that it’s heavy duty. This left me with never having to worry about a piece of wood damaging the splitter itself. The actual process of splitting the wood is nice with the 2 handles, along with an easy release of the pressure for resetting the machine.
However I found out that it actually leaked when stored. It also became very tedious when one of the hydraulic arms only began to work some of the time. However I think the biggest downside is its weight, as this thing is insanely heavy. It has wheels but they are super small and made out of metal, so they don’t roll very well and make a ton of noise when rolling. Overall I recommend looking into other wood cutting options.
