  1 Question
Q: gas or electric pro/con each?

4 way fit on all? Need minimum hp for 4way?

I am splitting oak from 12" to 24" in my back woods and yard 4 - 5 times a season

I like the vert/horiz w/4way

What would you recommend?

by Jack Radde from Michigan on April 09, 2011

A: Thank you for your inquiry. Gas units you would get more power/torque from. There is more maintenance with a gas than a electric. With the RamSplitter brand log splitters, the 4-way wedged only work for those units. There are specific tonnages for the wedges depending on which unit is selected. With the diameter of wood you would be splitting, I would go with the RamSplitter HV20-4 and the 20ton 4-way wedge.

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, it’s 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

Built Tough In The Us Of A!
Ramsplitter builds all of their units in Rockford, Illinois out of top quality components.

Take a look at the video to see how a 4 way wedge on a 16 ton model rips through a large log.

This is one of their smaller log splitters- imagine how fast your woodpile would grow with a 4 way wedge on a 30 ton unit!

Add the log cradles so you don't have to spend the day picking the split wood off the ground, and you have a classic example of working smarter, not harder.

Poor Instructions, Rave Review
Assembly instructions are the most incomplete and poor I've ever encountered. It doesn't seem to make sense that the owner/company would place so much emphasis on a quality product and not carry it through with complete and accurate instructions. Examples include the following:

-Instructs not to tighten bolts when assembling the "hitch" to the "tank" until beam is installed. Deosn't make any sense and never says exactly when to tighten.

-No instructions on lever... more

Good Product, Poor Assmbly Intructions
Assembly instructions were very poor. Did not include making all hose connections. I attempted calling Ramsplitter using two numbers on assembly and operating instructions - no answer on one and left a message on the other and no one returned the call.

I resolved the issue on my own and the splitter is operational and works great.
