How to the define how powerful should be my log splitter?

Log splitters’ force is measured by Tonnage (5 Ton, 10 Ton, 20 Ton…), what represent the weight we’d need to place over the log to split it (instead of hitting it with an axe). When we use a 5 Ton log splitter it is like we place 10,000 pounds over the log to make it split.

OK but… how much Tons do I need to split my logs?

Considering you are going to split seasoned logs, the Tonnage (force) needed to split the logs is basically determined by two factors:

1) Tree’s hardness (Softwood or Hardwood?);

2) Logs’ thickness.

It happens because each different tree species may have different hardnesses and, also, the thicker is log, stronger it will be. So, to be sure that your log splitter will be able to split your logs, before taking the decision of which model you’ll be, we strongly recommend you to check on the table below what’s the Tonnage you’ll need, based on your Tree’s hardness and logs’ thickness.

 Where can I use these log splitter?

On level and non-slippery terrain. The electric models can be used indoors/outdoors, however, the gas engine model can only be used outdoors.

 What Log Splitter’s model do I need?

The most important points to select the best Log Splitter model is to know what of wood and also the thickness of logs you’ll need to split. Please check detailed orientation on “Force” Tab, inside the product’s page.

Is there any assembly required for my log splitter?

No. However depending on the model, you may need to assemble the operating level. See manual for instruction.

 What’s the best for me, an Electric, Gas or Kinetic Log Splitter?

It mainly depends on the logs you’ll need to split (kind of wood and logs’ thickness). These information will define the splitting force you’ll need (how many Tons – please check detailed orientation on “Force” Tab, inside the product’s page). Usually for splitting forces of less than 10 Tons you’ll have good Electric Log Splitters, above this, Gas or Kinetic ones.

 What kind of outlet do I need to operate my Electric Log Splitter?

115v, 60 Hz standard 3 prong outlet. See manual for additional information.

    Good for the price

    I have had this item for a while. Really like it for dry wood. The only thing I dont like is it won’t cut almost wet wood or hard wood. Pine,willow,juniper,and pecan cuts well.

    This is a great little machine. I replaced a 30 ton gas powered unit with this and I was prepared to be underwhelmed. I was pleasantly suprised with this lightweight powerful tool. There isn’t a safety switch, so you can use your hand to steady large logs. I was splitting 20″ pine logs with ease. The best part it used 110 household current and you can use it indoors, such as your garage.
