Worked well for 45 minutes and then stopped splitting. Fluid in bottle jack is full, although there was a little leakage from pump seal but not significant. From all of the reading I've done online it would seem that internally the seals are leaking and won't allow the pressure to build high enough to split a dried 8" oak log. I like the simple design, sale price was right, and allowed me to provide wood for my weekly fire needs, but now I'm contemplating returning it or rebuilding the bottle jack.
I've read similar reviews online after my purchae.
Pros: good mechanical design for low firewood quantities
Cons: short life span
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
