I planned to get an eletric log splitter, but there are so many things to consider. I look into the power and intensity of the machine, but what you really want is to get the task done as soon as possible. Good thing that I stumbled into this incredible log splitter - The Powerhouse Log Splitters 7 Ton Electric Hydraulic Log Splitter. Since I'm new to using log splitters it's basically very easy to use. What I love about it, is that I usually work at night with the log splitter and I don't have to worry disturbing the neighbors cause it's quiet. For starters this a good deal. I would advice you to get one.
Bought online - Within 3 weeks, this product failed. Apparently the motor burned out with normal usage. Powerhouse does not return calls. Sears is no help in this matter despite numerous calls and hours wasted in call trees and being transferred from place to place only to end up where we started. We are out $400 and have no log splitter. Buy local so you have a person to talk to if you have similar problems.
Was worried about the size. Nothing has slowed it down yet.
THIS IS NOT, I REPEAT NOT, NOT , NOT THE MACHINE I ORDERED.....BECAUSE , I HAVE AN OLD ONE!! THE MACHINE I RECEIVED IS VERY SIMILAR BUT IT IS NOT THE MACHINE I ORDERED.....IT WAS FOR A FRIEND...AND WILL DO THE JOB...BUT, QUIT FALSE ADVERTISING.....THEY WERE NOT THE SAME MODEL AS PICTURED.....A MISREPRESENTATION...IS NOT GOOD BUSINESS!!!! BUYER BEWARE.....ORDER A CHICKEN FROM ME AND I WILL SEND YOU A DUCK!
Got the splitter late this season but held back 20 or 25 logs to try. It split all with no difficulty. The wood was green fruit wood, apple and apricot. Cut all to less that 20 inches. Some were oversize but by splitting on the edges first, I was able to split all but one. The one was heavily knotted on one end and so will use my chain saw on it.
missing wheel mount plate and the bolts that hold wheels on received part, no bolts
