Power Equipment Direct Recommended

This convenient electric model is strong enough to split logs the size most of us burn at home and light enough to easily be moved to different locations. At 110lbs this little splitter really packs a punch. Using 2,700 psi of hydraulic pressure you can split logs 10” in diameter and 20.5” long. Log diameter may vary based on wood type and how long ago the tree was cut down.

One hand lever operation with no additional button to push frees up your second hand to move previously split logs... more

Not Your Normal Use
We needed a safe clean way to split our plants in a greenhouse to prepare plants for spring. This concept with a little additions worked way above our expectations.

The machine is so easy to use and very durable. Clean operation and safe for all levels of employees to use. Could not be happier.

Save My Aching Back
Many years I hand split wood for my stove. Then I took a hard look at the pile that needed splitting and said "I really cannot do this", I was overwhelmed. I ordered the 5 ton BOSS splitter and it made short and easy the dreaded project.

Very little set up and short get started directions. Very well made and ver up to the task. - I am looking forward to the next downed tree.

Just A Little Disappointed
Based on the fact that I have never owned or used a log splitter, take this with that in mind. The splitter works very well. Is built very well and splits logs very well.

The only thing I regret is that all logs MUST be cut exactly straight. If not most won't split. Also, it will not split any green wood, even a 5" x 15" log.

The aged logs, even ones larger than advised, split easily. I guess I should have read the manual before I bought it. Might have bought a 7-ton.

Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store, Durable, Quiet
Cons: Will Not Split Green Wood

Brand Rep
William,
We appreciate your review. You are correct that green wood is harder to split, and a 7 ton could have helped out with that. If the logs are cut at a hard angle you can try to place the sharper angle on the wedge side so that the ram cap "the pushing piece" has a flatter edge to push on.

At extreme angles it is hard to get a solid push from the ram, as you are trying to push the whole log with just a small bit of log on one side of the ram. It simply can't get a grip and will push the log off the side, or over the ram cap depending on how you have the cut angle positioned. So a straighter cut will keep it on the machine. If you have a lot of logs cut on diagonals like this, keep and small hand ax nearby so you can make a quick cut to make a flat spot for the ram to push against. It may be a quick fix to get them to stay on the machine, and the long term solution is to cut the logs with a bit straighter cut so they will sit and stay on the log splitter for you.

If you have other questions, or I can provide you with any photos or additional info, please just let me know.

Thanks for buying a Boss!

Great Splitter
Very nice splitter. Bought the stand to go with it. So glad I did. I really like the one hand control for the splitter. Helps when splitting logs that are not perfectly round. I use it in my garage to split starter wood. Would give a 5 star rating.

Better Than Expected
Shipping was fast and easy, couldn't believe shipping was free !!! I was surprised at how quiet this unit is, I purchased this so I could split firewood at my leisure, I get firewood rounds from a local sawmill and have used their 20 ton splitter to split, only I could only use it on days they were closed which I understand of course but between cutting the rounds, splitting and loading into my truck, taking them home, unloading, stacking-- was getting to me.

Especially since I try to get... more

Perfect For My Needs
I purchase madrone wood that has already been split once, but I need to reduce the logs to a smaller size which I use to feed my wood-fired pizza oven.

I built a sturdy table and set the splitter on the table so I can work at a comfortable height. It splits the madrone easily to any size, all the way down to kindling if I need it.

One-hand operation makes it easy to operate. Much safer and faster than splitting by hand. I should have purchased this years ago!

Big Surprise
Only after watching a couple of videos and reading numerous reviews did I even consider an electric log splitter. I noticed this one looked impressive in action so I eventually chose it. It cost 349.00 or 399.00.

I am VERY satisfied with this log splitter. As a matter of fact I am VERY impressed. Log splitters direct is worthy of praise as well. Be sure and use a number 12 extension. 14 is normal and most common generally. Local home improvement store had one for 25.00 dollars.
