Power Equipment Direct Recommended

Simple and efficient is the best way to describe the YARDMAX YS0552. Great for anyone looking to easily split wood inside or out. The YS0552 provides 5-tons of splitting power and saves your energy and back from doing it by hand.

Powered by a 15-amp electric motor, this 5-ton splitter allows any user to split in the comfort of a garage or shed or outside. Since it runs off a standard 120-Volt household outlet, it can be used just about anywhere there is power.

So Far Fantastic Tool
I bought this to split firewood for our sauna. What sold me on this model was the built-in stand. People who bought other electrics commented about building a stand or putting on saw horses. This is definitely a back saver.

I used it once and it is easier than a maul, and quicker for me. I considered a kinetic model. The stroke time and return time with this model concerned me.

That concern was unfounded for three reasons: 1) The wood splits quickly such that you don't need to... more

It Does The Job And Seems To Have Plenty Of Power
Surprising power for an electric splitter. I wish that it could be operated with one hand so that you could position the wood with the other hand. Also the plate that holds the wood after splitting needs to be attached more securely. Otherwise, I'm very happy with this unit.
Pros: Price, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again

Fantastic Splitter!!!!
I have had other electric log splitters in the past, but this is the best one for the money!! It splits the logs with ease-as long as you don't go over the log sizes it recommends. And with the stand and tray, its a winner! If you buy one, ask if you could have it sent by a freight carrier (NOT FED/EX)
Pros: Durable, Features, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: NONE

"I had a great buying experience with Log Splitters--the ONLY issue I had was that the first splitter came to me by FED/EX damaged. They lied about where the shipment was, box was relabeled-told me the label "came" off -unit came in the wrong box-FED/EX re-boxed the unit after they broke it. Dropped it off at my home so I could not inspect it. Log Splitters sent me out a new replacement one right away!! I will do business with them again!!"

Great Deal For The Price!
Love it! Makes splitting wood fast and fun! The wheels are a bit flimsy when moving it around, but, overall, it's a great deal for the price.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Price, Easy To Store
Cons: Durability
