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.

    A most excellent splitter. There is a bolt that goes through the chassis tubing contenting it to the cast iron frame. The nut unscrewed and fell off. I noticed it at hour 15 of use. Replaced both the bolt and nut, as the threading size was odd. A cheap easy fix. i like the unit a lot.

    Just purchased the ES7T20 with the stand and split 1/2 cord of dry cherry in a half hour. Tore through everything up to 12″ x 20″ logs. I could hear a little strain in the motor on the larger knotty logs but it never bogged down. The splitter feels very solid and came pre-assembled but the stand took about 1 hour to install. Definitely worth it as with the stand you can work standing up. Fantastic purchase – very pleased!!

    I finally got the chance to use the Boss for the first time, three days ago. Love it!!! I had watched many videos on electric log splitters. My wife and I would watch one after the other. There is nothing like hearing the snapping, crackling, and popping of your own wood splitting!!!! I’m so happy with my decision to buy the 7 Ton Boss Wood Electric Wood Splitter!!!!! Excellent choice!!!

    Monster Machine. This bad boy is phenomenal. I’m not a professional logger, but I split enough oak to keep my fireplace going all through winter. This splitter gets er done. Split logs 12-14” with ease. Definitely recommend.
