I had been thinking about a new splitter for several years and finally decided this was the time. I did my homework. This 25 ton Black Diamond with a 6.5 hp Kohler is a very well-engineered, heavy duty splitter. I purchased mine at the Crawfordsville, Indiana store. They were super nice to deal with and the unit came assembled with hydraulic oil installed, ready to go. When I got it home, I went over every nut and bolt and they had done a perfect job of assembly. Second pull of the rope and it fired off and ran like a top. I highly recommend the log cradle attachment. You're cheating yourself of a much nicer work experience every time you use the splitter if you don't buy this option. Again, super machine and can't say enough good about the Crawfordsville store team Thank you!
Pros: Heavy duty, powder coated, Kohler engine, well-engineered and made
No, I would not recommend this product to a friend.
