This is a great log splitter for everyday use in a regular household. This model has an electric motor, which means you never need to strain yourself chopping unruly logs down to a manageable size for your wood stove ever again. With a splitting force of seven tons and a solid ram the most difficult logs to split using a wedge and sledge hammer or an axe, will fall apart with ease. Once you load a log in to the slot you simply pull either the high or the low speed lever and the ram will push the log it to the tough sharpened steel wedge, welded to the frame.

For logs that are hard wood, knotted or have a wonky grain you are going to want to use the low speed this ill push the log in to the wedge slowly but with overall more force allowing for easy splitting. If you want soft woods, with minimal knots and a straight grain chopped you can use the higher speed which pushes the log fractionally faster but with less over all force as it is not needed for softer woods. The only limit you have in the logs you want to get cut is, if how much you can lift or manoeuvre in to the slot without hurting or straining yourself.

As with many electric log splitters the only component you need to keep an eye on is the lever of hydraulic oil, you do not want your new log splitter to seize up before you get your seasons fire wood all cut up.
