Q: Do the axles, bearings, wheels and tires meet DOT requirements?

I know I would still need to add fenders & lights.

by Rich D. from Massachusetts on August 26, 2015

A: No, this splitter is not meant to be operated on public roads, it does not meet DOT requirements. This unit comes with a pin hitch only and is more or less intended to be pulled by a lawn/garden tractor or ATV.

If you'd like the convenience of an electric log splitter but have some really large logs to split, the Ramsplitter HV16-4 is a "Good" choice.

Instead of trying to lift large chunks of wood up to waist height, you can pull the pin on the splitter beam and rotate the beam into the vertical position. This allows you simply roll larger logs into place before splitting them.

The Ramplitter HV16-4 is powered by a 1.5HP high-torque motor that pulls 15-amps, so it will run on standard... more

Ramsplitter-- Quality Can Take Time, So Be Patient
Ramsplitter builds every one of their log splitters in Rockford, IL. While these units are manufactured in America by U.S. labor, the manufacturing process is very manual and time-consuming, and as a result, itís not unusual for a Ramsplitter brand log splitter to take as long as 6 to 8 weeks to ship to you from the time you order. There is no denying the unit you receive will be a top-quality product made by American workers. Just be prepared to wait for your unit to actually show up at your... more

H-16 E-power
I burn all winter with a wood stove in a residential home.

In the past I'd rent a 8hp (Honda) gas splitter and try to split all the wood I'd collected in 1 weekend.

This season I decided to bite the bullet and buy a splitter. Being on a budget I considered a PTO driven unit for my Kubota BX or going with one of the local Big Box Store gas units.

Then I found Ramsplitter while web surfing. I called & personally talked with the owner regarding power and cycle time speeds, ruling... more

So Very Disapointed
Hi researched log splitters on this site as well as many others. I wanted to buy a US made electric splitter. I decided Ram Splitter was the best choice. The first splitter arrived so damaged it could not be used. Doug at Ram splitter sent a second one that arrived even more damaged. I was able to combine the two to make one working splitter I used the splitter for less that 10 hours and did like it but the electric motor made a grinding sound and stopped working. I never used it more than an... more

Ramsplitter 16 Ton Electric
Excellent piece of equipment but not a "killer" machine. Electric is not gasoline power but this machine can do well with most anything. I have a lot of old giant Hemlock that is knotty as heck. You have to be careful and work around the tough pieces or the big knots will stop it cold, but the rest of the time it works fine. The fill-hole for the hydraulic fluid could be larger and moved so the strut doesn't get in the way of a funnel. Did they just forget (I hope) to give me a... more

Awesome Machine
This splitter is awesome. Just finished splitting approx. 10 truckloads of wood without a problem. It even made quick work of Sweet Gum. Assembly was fairly easy, however, if you have a forklift it is much simpler to attach the top part of the splitter, otherwise you will need two people. The packing was much too flimsy for the weight of this machine and it fell apart, though nothing was damaged other than some scratched paint. I used the splitter exclusively in the vertical position, mostly... more

Good Product - Not So Good Service From The Manufacturer - Ram S
First the good news. This 16 ton log splitter is awesome, no matter what I put in front of it, it split the wood first time, every time. I have rounds of wood 20 inch length and up to 24 inches across. Having the choice of horizontal or vertical splitting is really useful, especially on the big heavy rounds. This splitter is robust and firm in operation.

Now the bad news, the customer service could do with a major overhaul. Someone at Ram Splitter (the manufacturer) should explain to the... more

Nice Splitter But Needs Improving
I bought this splitter about a month ago and was able to use it today for the first time. I would first say that the 16 ton is all the power I'll ever need. I get mostly Ash and Oak here and nothing goes more than 26 to 30" across. The splitter handled everything with ease, the vertical position is really nice as you don't need to lift those heavy pieces. The splitter operated flawlessly all day and you can split a ton of wood pretty quickly. The ram operated at a good speed. It's quick... more

Like The Log Splitter But Made Some Modifications
Got the log splitter much earlier than expected which was a great surprise. It works just like it promised but after assembling it I could see where there might be some problems in the future without some modifications. I added a ring at the base of the log holding platform so the log would have something to grab onto and not slip while having the pressure of the wedge during the splitting.

Another big thing I could see that would happen is something coming down on the motor which was not... more

Split Second !
I have had my splitter for a season, so now I can tell you all that this is the way to split wood.

All the little things that people complain about are not a problem! Just put it together and split wood as it will do the job.
Hard wood green or dry, soft wood. It has split it all. I am using 100ft of #12 cord on 20 amps, no problem! Sold my big old gas unit and I am soo happy with this unit!!!
Pros: Quiet, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations
