Freight Orders

Freight deliveries require a delivery time be scheduled and someone must be present at the time of delivery to inspect and sign for the merchandise. A representative from the freight carrier will call the phone number entered at checkout to schedule the delivery.


Liftgate Service

For freight deliveries, you have the option of adding a liftgate to your delivery. A liftgate is the device that lowers a product from the truck to ground level.

CPO recommends adding liftgate service for freight deliveries exceeding 100 lbs if you do not have a loading dock or fork lift at the delivery address. Additional charges may apply. The liftgate option will be presented during the checkout process.

Please note that liftgate service only ensures the product is removed from the truck. We recommend you have the additional help of two to four people to move the product to its desired location because drivers are not required to assist.

Requesting liftgate service after ordering may result in additional charges and delays.

Needs better quality control

By HIO

from Hillsboro Oregon

Comments about Ariens 169cc Gas 27 Ton Log Splitter:

Design is great (1 exception below). The work area is clear of obstructions, the engine and critical components are away from falling wood, valve is centrally located, splitter is well balanced for moving by hand. The first round of wood I split with is was one that I couldn't split by hand. Splitting mall bounced off of it, but this splitter went through it with ease in about 4 seconds. Since I am only retracting the ram far enough to put a round on the beam, the cycle time is about 8 seconds. Design exception: The eyelets on the wedge that connect to the cylinder are weak. I can easily see these pulling out when retracting, and expect I'll have to repair this some day. Quality control: The splitter ran for about 30 minutes, and 4 of the hydraulic fittings are already leaking. Not a huge issue at the moment, but they have obvious drips. I will likely need to disassemble the fittings and add hydraulic teflon paste. I also noticed that 2 of the hoses use crimped connectors while the others use cheap hose clamps. That is just plain lazy and sloppy. For this price, they should all be professionally crimped hoses.

This log splitter will split any kind of wood.

By old trucker

from CALIF.

Comments about Ariens 169cc Gas 27 Ton Log Splitter:

This is one great log splitter, it will split hard or soft wood , has no problem splitting eucalyptus , oak , ash, jacaranda, walnut, some pine . I have split logs three feet wide with this tool ,what is so great is the nice WIDE splitting wedge , great for splitting green wood , I split all my wood when it is green so it will dry out faster. This log splitter has split wood for four winters for my family and a few friends , mostly stove wood. this tool is so good I peel the bark off eucalyptus and pine , a great tool! It is worth every cent I paid because I split wood alone at sixty years young. My grand son calls me super grandpa log man .

        Represenitive of Tyler Tools was most helpful especially when it came to figuring freight cost'..Did not take very long to uncrate the machine. Really appreciated the fact we were able to observe it in the see through wrapping. Did not detect any damage. Only thing that was bothersome was we had to go to town to purchase two gallons of hydro oil. put in one and a quarter gallon of oil, filled gasoline tank, put the choke in the closed position, reversed the tow bar to the towing position, and pulled the starter cord. Wow, what a machine. At the age of 78, it sure will beat using a wedge and 4 pound maul

        A quality machine

        By david

        from Michigan

        Comments about Ariens 169cc Gas 27 Ton Log Splitter:

        We heat with wood as a second energy source. I've had the 27 ton splitter for two years and now it's time to offer a review for those shopping for a splitter. In my opinion this is the best splitter available for the price point. It's ruggedly made, well thought out and has more than adequate power with the Subaru engine. We've spit dozens of cords of red and white oak and the machine functions as it did from day one.There is nothing cheap about this machine. Change the engine oil every season and this thing will be around for your grandkids to use many years from now. It's a pleasure to own something that you know is well-built is a sea of poory made products.

        With my 27 ton Ariens splitter, I get great production of wood with less effort

        By Denis

        from Guffey, Colorado

        Comments about Ariens 169cc Gas 27 Ton Log Splitter:

        I recently retired as supervising forester after 24 years in the forestry industry. living in the Colorado mountains I make the most out of saving energy costs, especially in winter. One way I do this is having a couple of wood stoves and an antique kitchen wood and coal cook stove. Cutting trees and splitting wood has kept me in shape, but those aches and pains from lifting the logs on the splitter sure slowed me down. Now that I finally purchased an Ariens 27 ton log splitter that has the horizontal and vertical option with a craddle, I get more production of split wood in less time with less back aches. I have found Ariens 27 ton to be reliable when I need it. It starts on the first or second pull, runs smoothly,and is extremely efficient on fuel. Than you Ariens for your great product.
