Overview

Horizontal-Vertical Design

The 28-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 (8.8 GPM), generating 3450psi of splitting force. Logs up to 30" in diameter and up to 25" long are no problem. And the 28-Ton model's 17-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" tires. The jackstand folds up for transport, locking into place with a simple cotter pin.

Bought this splitter last year. Temperatures below 40F splitter will not start, unless I put a heat light on the hydraulic pump for an hour or so.

Heavy duty unit
Posted by: Steve S. from PORT ST JOHN, FL on 01/29/2016
Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
I have not been able to use the unit yet. I will say that the splitter appears to be well built. We were able to put it together in about an hour. All hardware is packaged separately for the different steps of building the splitter. Directions are clear and easy to follow. The main section with the hydraulic cylinder mounted on it is very heavy. It took two of us to slide it to a point where we could stand it up. Everything came together perfectly. I was impressed with the unit once we got it all put together. Definitely recommend this splitter just on the ease of the build. My unit came with a filter on the return for the hydraulic oil. According to DR this is not used any longer. DR is sending the retro fit parts to delete the filter system.

Good Splitter
Posted by: EUGENE M. from SPOONER, WI on 12/19/2014
Rating: Product Review Stars: 4.00 star rating
It is a good splitter, lotsa of power, good ram wedge, splits hard oak effsortlessy. After a few hours of use the main seal on the ram cylinder leaked quit a bit, and had to be completely replaced by a DR Dealer. Then the hose between tank and pump began to leak. Clamps on tank send were tight. An added clamp was installed which did not help. The hose had to be replaced after 30+ days to get a factory replacement. Too late before cold weather and snowfall. I also found the splitter rail fuilcrum point makes it very heavy for me to raise it with one hand, because you need to use the other one to hold the latch pin out to raise it. So, I add 80 lbs of weights temporarily on the splitter rail bottom end to assist in raising it to verticle. Then put the weight back on to lower it to horizontal. Now, I can be able to make it a auseful splitter for me. O h, and it come to you in a steel constructed crate to disassemble with metric tools to assemble all the major parts.

The product was a challenge to unload and assemble. It seems to do the work satisfactorily after an hour's use. It has a hydraulic leak and am awaiting o rings to try and repair. The fenders being directly below the splitting area causes an extra lift to avoid hitting fenders as opposed to other splitters I've used designed with the wheels/fenders ahead of the splitting area.
Response from DR SupportWe appreciate your feedback on the DR Horizontal Vertical Log Splitter and apologize that you've been having some difficulties. A member of our Tech Support Department is going to call you so together we can resolve these matters for you.

splitter review
Posted by: JEFF S. from ARIEL, WA on 10/02/2014
Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
overall the machine works nice. Had a couple of things to fix in the first two hours of use. installed double hose clamps on the return line at valve and filter because the line blew off and made a mess. My neighbor, the Gates hose rep. says hose clamps on a steel braided hose are a big NO NO and set me up with fittings. The pull cord for the start on the motor keeps turning so the cogs won't pop out I have repaired these things and except for a small leak at the control handle. I have now put about 10 more hours on the unit and split 24" x 53" rounds and have no knot the machine won't go through.

Sort By:
Q.I was looking for a log splitter (btwn 28 and 35 ton) and have read the reviews on both the 28 ton and 34 ton DR models however, I know have concerns over the quality of DR. I have two DR products now for over 4 years that I really enjoy and trust to work every time. My concern with DR log splitters are the hydraulic hoses and fittings. Why on earth would DR be using hose clamps with pressures reaching 3500psi? As one reviewer stated that is a big No No. And why are so many o-rings leaking/failing? So my question is to DR... has your engineers corrected this deficiency- re-engineered the hoses/fittings? I need to know this before I spend that kind of money as I can get a local model that does have the correct hydraulic fittings. Thank you for your attention into this matter.
A.We have switched from the hose clamp to screw on fittings on the return hose. As for the o-rings, we believe it was more of an assembly issue than a mechanical issue and have addressed that concern.>BR?
Please give us a call if you have any other questions.

Q.I live in a red and white oak forest and cut trees up to 26 inch diameter. Will the 28 ton model handle this wood our should I upgrade to the 34 ton model?
A.Thank you for contacting us and your interest in the 28 Ton Horizontal/Vertical Log Splitter.

The 28 Ton model will handle logs up to 30 inches in diameter and will split the oak very well. The 34 Ton model does have the commercial grade Subaru engine and will handle the red and white oak with ease, even with the 4 way splitting wedge.

Please contact us if you have further questions. PL

Q.Does this engine have idle control, so it would idle down when full power is not needed? Thank you
A.Thank you for your question about the DR Horizontal/Vertical Log Splitter. There is an idle control on the engine. Our H/V Splitter allows you to split in vertical position to eliminate the need to lift the logs before splitting.

Q.What exactly was done to this unit to constitute a "reconditioned" unit? Also, do all new unit warranties apply to the "reconditioned" unit? Can you provide photos of the particular reconditioned unit I may be buying?
A.Thank you for your interest in the reconditioned DR 28-Ton Horizontal/Vertical Log Splitter.

Our slightly used, reconditioned machines are machines returned to us during a customer's DR Hands-On Trial Period. Reconditioned machines are thoroughly inspected, adjusted and cleaned. Any worn parts are replaced and each machine is tested to ensure it runs like new.

All reconditioned machines receive the same standard warranty coverage as a new model plus the Hands-On Trial Period. Unfortunately, the only photo available on our reconditioned units are stock photos. Please be assured reconditioned machines are refurbished to the quality and functionality found in all our new equipment. They are a great alternative to a new machine purchase. ph
