Hey Dugsaws,
I bought one last year.  Their largest one with the log lift.  They say it is their 37 ton ???????????
The only problem I had was the valve that extended the ram leaked.  I called them, and they sent out a replacement with NO questions asked.  I have split about 12 cord with it so far, and it has worked very well.   I haven't found anything that it has not been able to split, and it has picked up SEVERAL chuncks of would that was probably over its "limit" as far as the log lifter. 
So far I really like it.    8)

Where are the RuggedMade built?

Frankly, have not heard of that brand before but actually wonder what might be some different with them from other splitters ??  Engine, pump, valve, style, ??

Don't quote me on this, but I believe that they are made in CHINA ???   I see now, from your attachment, that they offer a Briggs engine now, and not just the other. (Forget the name) I would have went with the Briggs if that option was available at that time, although I have not had any problems with my engine.
