Overview

Horizontal-Vertical Design

Our 22-Ton Horizontal/Vertical splitter is designed for easy transition between horizontal and vertical configurations. The horizontal mode is easiest for most splitting tasks. But when you come across an extra big round, you can save yourself a lot strain by simply pulling out a pin, easily rotating the unit into its vertical position, and splitting the log on the ground...no lifting required!

An easy-starting DR 9.59 FPT engine powers the 2 stage pump (6.3 GPM), generating 3400psi of splitting force. Logs up to 30" in diameter and up to 25" long are no problem. And the 22-Ton model's 16-second cycle time makes it one of the fastest hydraulic splitters in its class.

Road-Towable

A 2" ball hitch with safety chains comes standard, allowing you to tow the unit at speeds up to 45 mph on its big 16" DOT-approved tires. The jackstand folds up for transport, locking into place with a simple cotter pin.

22-Ton Horizontal Vertical Log Splitter



Features
Switch from horizontal to vertical position on a DR log splitter

Easy Conversion

Switching from horizontal to vertical mode (or vice versa) takes only a few seconds. Just slip out a pin, rotate the unit, and re-insert pin to lock it into position. Lets you split those really big rounds without lifting the log onto the beam.

2-inch tow ball hitch on a DR vertical/horizontal log splitter

Easy Towing

A 2" ball hitch comes standard (with safety chains) allowing for road towing at speeds up to 45 mph. Durable, 16" DOT-approved tires. Jackstand folds up for transport.

4-way wedge on a DR vertical/horizontal log splitter

4-Way Wedge

The optional 4-way wedge easily attaches to the standard vertical wedge, allowing you to get 4 logs out of one split.

Consider the big picture

If you're shopping for a hydraulic wood splitter and you're not made of money, you might be looking for a quality product, reasonably priced, with an attractive financing option. Look no further. The 22 ton machine is really good quality. Everything from the engine to the hydraulic fittings is decent quality, even if it is manufactured you-know-where. I do have a gripe about the shipping. The online tracking report was not updated in a timely manner. By the time I contacted DR to find out when my machine was going to ship, it had already left the distribution center and was actually scheduled to be delivered to my home that same day. I had to take time off from work to get home, only to discover that final delivery was postponed for the next day. So, now I have to explain to my employer why I need 2 days off from work. Not cool.

Comments about my log splitter
Posted by: Reed C. R. from SPOKANE, WA on 03/01/2016
Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
I really enjoy my DR Log Splitter. I have had for about 3 yrs. My son has used it more than I have and really liked its power and reliability. I have been using it the past 2 weekends and I really like. We have some wood with a lot of knots and twists in it. The splitter handled all of them w/o any problems. My biggest dislike about the splitter is where the battery is located. It is under the frame in a very awkward position. You have to get on the ground to take the battery out or put it in--no fun. I have to have help to change the battery because I can not get up if I get on the ground. It seems to me that putting the battery on the frame above the axle-hydraulic reservoir would be a great change! Thanks.

I'm not your standard male. I am a professional electronics guy and a mechanic by trade. I am a diy kind of guy. I believe in being self sustained. This is my first log splitter. I was a little worried that it might be a bit under powered. I also realized gas consumption is a trade off when it comes to hydraulic psi and tonnage. To date I have split over 2 cords of wood and followed all recommended break in procedures. This unit was delivered to me via a freight pick up. In a box with metal frame. Its shipping weight is 603lbs. I didnt want to pay for the door delivery. You must have a decent tool set to assemble this machine. I was able to assemble it from pieces to working machine in about 3 hours. Before you fire this puppy up. make sure you verify all preshipped, pretightened hoses and fittings are tight. Also make sure your O-Ring by the hyd reservoir is installed correctly. My o-ring was not and I had a slow leak. Hydraulic fluid is expensive and I don't want it leaking. As far as function....great. No issues. I have split wet oak and elm with no issues,Very large pieces with no problems. Very fuel efficient. I have also split wood with knots with zero issues. This thing is a beast. I cant imagine having the 28 ton or anything larger for my needs. The kohler engine is great. Honestly it looks like a honda replica. Set throttle at WOT and full choke and it fires up one pull.

My Opinion of 22 ton splitter
Posted by: HENDRIK P. from FORKED RIVER, NJ on 05/31/2015
Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
This is my 2nd splitter from DR Power. Had a small electric 6 ton that was just to small for the oak I was getting. I decided on the 22 Ton H/V splitter for it's durability and beefiness over the splitters available out there. I have split about 4 cords of 2 year old Oak, some 18-23 inches across and 16 inches in length effortless. I like the plastic fenders. where some dislike. they don't get bent up or scratched up. I am having some pressure issues where the relief valve in filter housing pops. But the Technical Team has been working with me to correct the issue. They are giving there 100%. Con's. I feel the hydraulics oil should be sent with the unit. Also the oil for the engine. Also I would like to see a Wheel Option be made available instead of the front support leg.
Response from DR SupportThank you for providing feedback on your DR® Horizontal / Vertical Log Splitter. We are sorry to hear that you’ve been having some difficulties with the pressure release valve and glad that our Tech Support Department has been a good resource and are helping you out. Please don’t hesitate to contact us should you have any other questions or concerns. Thanks for the good suggestions and we will be sure to pass them along – we really do enjoy customer feedback and over the years have implemented various comments/suggestions into product changes.

Front Royal Virginia Review
Posted by: Allen Ris from FRONT ROYAL, VA on 03/20/2015
Rating: Product Review Stars: 4.00 star rating
Solid for the most part. The fender mounts bend too easy when hit with wood. I am uneasy about the plastic housing between the hydraulic pump and the engine. I wish the engine had a cover to keep wood debris from falling on it. I wish the engine had an oil drain extension so that oil does not dribble under the engine during a change. I wish the hydraulic fluid cap was threaded metal versus plastic with O-rings. The decals did not stay on. Solid frame and lots of power. The engine starts well. So far it is worth keeping.
Response from DR SupportThank you for your thoughtful feedback on the DR® 22-ton Horizontal / Vertical Log Splitter. We always appreciate hearing from our customers. Someone from our Tech Support Department is going to give you a call soon – we want to make certain that the machine is working well for you and that you’re satisfied with its performance. We appreciate that you chose DR® Power Equipment and thank you for your business. We’ll be in touch soon.

DR Log Splitter
Posted by: WILLIAM T. from HARRISVILLE, PA on 07/07/2014
Rating: Product Review Stars: 4.00 star rating
I just recently purchased the DR Horizontal/Vertical log splitter and used it a few times and like it's power and dual positions. I tow it around my property with my John Deere 214 lawn tractor without any problems. The only suggestion I have is to install it with a trailer jack with dolly wheel. I installed one on mine and it makes it easier to move and level up. I've looked at other log splitters the same 22 ton but they are not built as solid as the DR.

22 ton splitter
Posted by: Wayne E. from OBRIEN, FL on 07/05/2014
Rating: Product Review Stars: 2.00 star rating
12 weeks is much too long to have a unit deleivered. The finders should be metal instead of plastic. Bolts were not tight, they came loose during operation. The oil fill on motor is hard to get to for checking oil level and refills.
Response from DR SupportThank you for posting a review to our website. The bolts should always be checked before using it as a general safety precaution, but they should stay tight. If they were loose to begin with, we apologize for that. We’ll let our Product Development people know about your comments on the fenders & oil fill issues. Thanks for mentioning them.

The quality is great. heavy think i could split a Mack truck and not break this thing. only problem i had was a leaking hose dealer fixed no biggy. Thank you dr. And Dansville Town and country Agaway. Only complain i have it run a little slow.

Q.Does the 22 ton model's blade automatically return after splitting is completed?
A.Thank you for your inquiry. To begin the retraction of the ram it is necessary to push the lever into retract mode. Once there it will "lock" into place and the ram will automatically continue to retract until it reaches the end of the cycle, then the lever will spring back into the neutral position. I hope that this answers your question. If you'd like to order this splitter, please call us at 800-376-9637 or simply place it in the shopping cart online.
