Rugged Made Splitter

Just found these. For the price, it seems too good to be true. Anyone have any experience with these?

Price looks pretty healthy to me.
Are you buying, or have you operated one?

I think I paid close to that for the Oregon splitter (Speeco, Huskee) that I am not very impressed with (and wrote a review on here about) and this looks like a better design to me.

 Looks good and the 37 ton will murder anything most of us ever see. But I would question the travel position of the  lift table. Looks like it's searching for a place to snag itself.

IIRC I read a few years back that Lifan was one of the major China builder of the Honda clones.

I would check real close about the availability of parts for the engine.
Give me a new saw chain and I can find you a rock in a heartbeat.

Looks good other than the Chonda motor.  Suprised they don't call it a 15 horse.

This looks better than my 28 ton Speeco.

But I paid $1250 for the Speeco vs. $2995 which is a huge difference.

For the money the Speeco is a good value and I processed about 18 cord since Sept.

I just bought a 37 type 2 30" stroke. This machine is awesome! I had been using a 31ton horiz./vert. which was fine but my boiler takes a 30" log so it was a real pain to split them. Log lift is great (my woodsplitting boys just moved out). You talk about fast this splitter is ridiculously fast . We will have  to see about longevity. 1300.00 less than northern
