Good to know: the Basic version (split, merge, extract pages, mix and rotate) is open source and completely free to use without limitations. The Enhanced and Visual version are premium.

In a field absolutely littered with trialware, nagware, and overpriced solutions, the free PDF Split and Merge is a breath of fresh air and does the job well. I have used it consistently for 2+ years to split, merge, and reorder PDFs.
My only complaint is that it requires Java to be installed on your machine. Java may be problematic on some people's computers. I have never had a problem on the 4 computers I use it on, though.

Mac version failed without error after converting first 5 pages. I would recommend looking elsewhere for a Mac PDF tool.

about PDFsam and 7-PDF Split & Merge, PDFTK Builder Jun 2011

PDFTK Builder [1] and PDFsam [3] are the only free portable apps able to split or merge more than 140 pages.
If you need a free portable app able to split or merge 147 pages, you can use PDFTK Builder [1], which is available only in english, however. PDFsam is also portable and availaible in many languages (german also). 7-PDF Split & Merge [2] (german + english) can split only max. 50 pages and merge max. 5 files for free. If you want to to split or merge more than 50 pages you must pay 10 EUR for "7-PDF Split & Merge PRO".
