Unpacked my Ryobi electric splitter today. It had excellent packing- a very good sign. Then I could see the solid workmanship on the unit itself - looks like it is built to last and not just a cheesy chinese POS. I ran about a dozen logs through it and had a blast. I use 16-18" logs and it split them effortlessly. My logs were 10-12", still very wet inside and it handled oak and locust perfectly. Very pleased.
