Good At the moment the only fault is that you have to let the ram all the way back to the start of the stroke. I.e. if you have some shorter length logs the ram has to travel all the way to the log. On my mate's log splitter you can shorten the stroke length and on my one the ram is not that fast even on FULL speed.
- Efficient Use of Time Log Splitting
Efficient Use of Time Log Splitting Easy to use, powerful splitter which I bought the stand for to stop all the bending over. Sharing with four other people who have now split all their wood as well.
Has made splitting very quick and simple.
- Great Log Splitter - Impressed
Great Log Splitter - Impressed Did much research before buying this as I needed a log splitter with plenty of power. I decided to pay the extra money for more power and quality. Not much available in terms of reviews so hope this helps.
It is a quality built machine and in use it feels like it. I have split green and seasoned logs up to 18 inches long and 14 inches wide and it has not flinched. It splits green wood very well.
Although not advertised as having two speeds it does have them. The higher speed pushes the ram quicker and exerts less force for splitting smaller logs and the slower speed exerts the full 7 tons from the ram for splitting the big boys. It is a heavy weight machine, but over engineered is always better than under engineered and it does have wheels.
There are other models on the market that look the same as this, with the same spec' e.g. the Forest Master FM16. You pay a lot extra for a duo-cut blade with that machine and it is not worth the extra money. The duo-cut blade can also push the log off centre and up in the air on that machine.
I am impressed with the Lawnflite LS2300 and Lawnflite is a name I trust. Would I buy again? Yes for sure. If you go onto youtube there is a yellow machine called a Woodeze. This is the same spec' as the Lawnflite only a different colour.
- Eats Logs for Fun
Eats Logs for Fun Not much to find about this product in terms of reviews so this might help. Although I did not buy from MowDirect this review may be helpful wherever you buy. I have two other MTD Lawnflite garden machine products, a lawn tractor and a blower machine, I have had these for years and they have always worked a treat so I trust this brand.
Firstly, I did a lot of research and comparison into which log splitter product to buy pricewise and performance wise.There are many log splitters to choose from but I wanted one with plenty of splitting oomph for splitting very large logs. This 7 ton Lawnflite has fitted the bill perfectly and the extra bit of cash paid for it was worthwhile. It is a heavy piece of kit and the build quality shows through. It has split up every log I have offered it, and with no fuss whatsoever.
Although not advertised anywhere as a two-speed machine the Lawnflite LS2300 is actually a two speed machine. The makers of this log splitter MTD Lawnflite have really missed a trick IMO by not advertising this as two speed, and it must be costing them sales.
As a test I have put a part green, 20 inch long and 14 inch wide log through it on the full 7 ton loading and it split it first time, thus allowing it to then be made into smaller pieces on the faster speed, lighter loading ram of 4 tons. It splits green wood and seasoned wood effortlessly.
If you are looking for a well built log splitter with plenty of power that's a pleasure to use then I would not put you off this one at all. It is worth the extra bit of cash over the cheaper 4/5 ton splitters. I reckon this product will last me for years.
As I said I did a lot of research and this machine is marketed in the USA as Woodeze, it is a well respected product out there. It is a yellow coloured machine out there and there is a great video review of it on youtube by some guy out there. It is the same machine.
Anyway, hope this has helped, it is an honest review as all my reviews are.
- Excellent tool
Excellent tool Helpful staff in advising me which log splitter to buy, well worth the extra money than most other makes, Delivered and used within 24 hours of order. Trying to find a log it will not split !! but cannot up to now. Made our own very simple stop to restrict return for smaller logs. Should be included in price.
