Ive had this splitter for several years and have had to replace the operation handle assembly already. Kinetic ram splitters are hard on equipment when busting up big rounds! The worst part of the splitter like one review already said... the Kohler engine SUCKS! If its below 60 degrees, you cannot get it to start at all! Over 60, 1 pull starts. PowerKing referred me to Kohler, Kohler has "no idea" and was zero help. So... its sitting in a small engine repair shop a/o 2/11/2024. Hoping they find a remedy🤨
I bought this chipper from Lowes several years ago. I have probably taken down 6-7 40'+trees on my land. What I could not chip.....I used for firewood. This chipper is NOT a commercial chipper. Although, as advertised, it can handle a 6" straight limb. I think 1"-4" limbs is where it excels. It is a very good home/weekend lumberman piece of equipment. It has saved me countless truckload hauls to the landfill. The wood chips are great household use. I rarely buy mulch anymore. Finally, the Kohler engine usually starts on 1-2 pulls regardless of when it was used last.
When my organic gardening wife asked for a chipper for mulch and compost, I researched for the best machine. I wanted a robust chipper with a durable engine, heavy weight and easy for a petite lady to start and operate. I ordered the Power King PK0915-EH with a bit of apprehension since I'd never seen one in person. Wow! What a pleasure to receive a heavy duty beast of a chipper that was well engineered, well built and easy for her to operate solo. It surpassed my expectations and I'm obsessive about quality and durability. We chipped some hard, dry mesquite limbs and the mulch is uniform and the perfect size for her garden. I could not be happier with this product and this seller!
Great service and a great machine. We love it- works well, handles the maple and pine with ease. Thank you.
So far so good! Easy assembly and works great!
