The Powerhouse FX128-Z will split logs up to 20” long and 12” in diameter. The diameter may vary based on type of wood and its moisture level (length of time it’s been cut). When the weather turns cold you can wheel it indoors and split in comfort. You may damage the pump if you operate in temperatures below freezing. Keep it dry and above freezing and you should have trouble-free splitting for years to come.

You will need access to a 120 volt 20 amp circuit to power this splitter due... more

Great Wood Splitter
I was skeptical about an electric splitter since I only used a gas powered one before. I tried it because I didn't like the noise, heat and fumes of a gas engine. I was pleasantly surprised at the ease of use and the low noise level of the electric one. There is a size range for the splitter which was a problem for my large pieces but that is common for all splitters.

The work went extremely fast. I made a connector for the dual control handles so I could easily press the lever with one... more

Pretty Nice Little Unit
So far I like this splitter because it is small yet powerful. However, I would really like to learn how to defeat the need for two handed operation which is stupid!

And clearly less safe than one handed operation. I haven't used it enough to rate the product yet. Ask me to rate this product in a year. This program wont let me submit unless I rate, so therefore I will rate low until I use the product for at least a few months.

I Love This Thing!!!
I absolutely love my wood splitter. I have a camp and have had many trees taken down and hate to see them sit and rot. There is no way I could split them by hand.

First of all, the shipping was free and delivery was right to my door (in the woods). Setup was very easy and the wheels make it so easy to move to the work site.

I love this because it seems so safe compared to chainsaws and hatchets. Being electric is certainly easy.
You load the log, pull the handle and SLOWLY the plate... more

David,
I'm sorry you're having problems with your Powerhouse log splitter. You may check the hydraulic fluid level, make sure the air vent is open and try plugging into multiple electrical outlets.

If it is not working you may contact Powerhouse at 503-575-9407. Unfortunately this splitter carries a one year warranty.

Kapow, It Splits
I've been using a 24-ton log splitter with a pretty fast cycle time, but I wanted something around the house to take the chunks down to smaller sizes for the wood insert and to split up a whole bunch of kindling. So, I got this unit for the garage. It's pretty handy, it has definitely split the wood. It took a little getting used to how it kicks out the pieces when it splits. I finally figured out why it does that. The wedge on the unit flares out at the end, so it progressively pushes more... more

All The Power I Need
I bought this splitter to replace my speeco 5 Ton. It would kick it self out frequently and I was restarting all the time splitting fir and larch. No problem power wise with FX128-Z. BUT, what a useless setup with the two hand hydraulic system.

I did not use the machine until I modified it for one hand hydraulic operation, also improved the air bleed screw and added 20" bicycle wheels and tires for easy moving.

I received my splitter within 4 days after I placed my online order. I am very, very happy with Log Splitters Direct and my splitter. I set it up near my fireplace in my family room, split the wood, and really enjoy with flame. Highly recommend and sure buying again when needed.

Works Great
When I unpacked the machine, the front brace was hanging by one bolt. The other bolt was embedded in the Styrofoam packing material and the lock nut was no where to be found. I had another nut that fit, but the bolt had been stripped so took a little to get the nut on. As in previous reviews, the instruction manual (looks like poorly photocopied pages) was really bad on the directions to install several of the pieces. The parts list didn't match everything that I had in the box.

Great 7 Ton Electric Log Splitter
I have had this splitter for about three years now and it has never given up on me. I like the electric one because I can do the splitting inside when it is too cold outside. Great little machine for the home owner, maybe not for a business.
