Floor Model Deal For $100 Bucks
I purchased this from Sears as/is for $100! I thought what do I have to lose. The first load was 4 cords.That was in one day I didn't have a problem at all once I developed a system. Total I have split about 16 cords with it. The only problem is when it gets below 40F.

The hydraulic fluid isn't heated up enough. So get your wood split before it snows!! It's a great deal for a homeowner who burns a few loads a year! No gas to deal with and if you buy and it doesn't work for you take it back!... more

John,
The wonderful thing about electric splitters is that you can use them inside a garage, barn, or even in your basement. There's no gas, no combustion, and no fumes, so it's actually safe to run indoors.

So while the cold will thicken the hydraulic fluid, you can thin it back out by bringing it into a warmer environment and using it there. Best of luck staying toasty warm the remainder of this winter, and we look forward to helping you out with your log splitter needs in the future.

Thanks for sharing.

Earthquake Electric Log Splitter 5 Ton
I ordered the Earthquake Electric Log Splitter Nov. 1st, 2010. I used it in Dec. 2010, Jan 2011 & Feb 2011. I didnít use in Dec. 2011, because itís been unusually warm this winter.
So I only used it in four different Months. Just long enough to be passed the 1 year waranty.
It popped the left hand guide nut and BENT the hydraulic shaft while splitting a log.
Got a note back from Mfg. The unit is out of waranty. Itís warantied for 1 year from purchase date. They do have a refurbished unit... more

A Great Buy; The Manual Needs Work
I bought this because I needed an indoor splitter for the garage. I got it yesterday (2/12/2013).

I read all the directions and checked everything, even all the bolts to make sure everything was tight. All was good. I went to split my first log and the motor would not start. Turns out I blew the breaker on the splitter.

I had to let cool down, tried again- and again blew the breaker. In the operating instructions it says you have to use both the controls at the same time, which is what... more

Bought It Last Week
I didn't need a large splitter at my cabin and tried this. It split threw a cord of wood some of which was 14" diameter. It never seemed to even strain.
I fear that I haven't used it enough yet to comment on reliability. Because of other reviews, I will be checking the ram bolts.
I guess I also recommend users to make sure to use a 12 gauge cord.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Exceeded Expectations, Easy To Store

Does The Job For Me
Like others, I found the instructions were not too good with a little improvising needed to install the few parts required. Put it together today and used it to split seasoned Elm up to 10" diameter. Worked fine on stringy Elm. So far I would recommend this product for small scale use like fireplace wood not exceeding 20" long and 10" diameter. Gloves and eye protection are a must. Important tip: let the motor rev up to speed before engaging lever. This allows full power... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Easy To Store
Cons: Bad Instructions

Shakey Start Strong Finish
Following the instructions, I put the knob on the hydraulic ever and stripped that. Mounted the wheel assembly and the holes were off 1/2"Loosened all the bolts and got it lined up and the hole was per-stripped.Mounted the handle and one hole was filled with paint.After one hour I put it to the test.A piece of green oak,8" in diameter and 12' long.

Failed at a hundred lbs, shipping it back was out of the question.Got some help and took a smaller bite out of the chunk.It worked but... more

Impressed
I am impressed with these splitters, this is my second one only because I wasn't paying attention and a bolt came loose on the ram and bent the shaft of the first one.

I fully intend to fix this as soon as I have time.

Again, thanks for producing an excellent product for the money.

Splitting Logs At Home
I haven't had a chance to use the log splitter much, but so far it is perfect for what I will be needing.

We have a small wood-burning fireplace and live in a rural area where wood is available.

I was happy with the ease of which this particular splitter operates, and the logs are the size that fit well into the small insert in my fireplace. My wife bought this as a Christmas gift and it will be the gift that keeps on giving!

Great bargain!

It is well made, and easy to move and store. Quiet operation.

Very impressed with the power and ease of operation.

Should have had one years ago.

Steady Machine
This machine is heavier than it looks- and the instructions for putting it together are pretty bad. Yet upon completion it works wonderfully well and is exactly what we were looking for: an electric log-splitter that fits in the garage to split the bigger firewood.

I was doing this with an axe; this is much, much better. I should have done this when the firewood was delivered.

Very pleased with this electric log splitter . Price was good, cheaper than Home Depot. I like the fact I do not have to worry about gas and fumes, also is nice and quiet. For my purpose this log splitter served me well. Keep in mind I only used it once this season so far. So as of right now I have nothing negative to say about this log splitter. Customer service was fine . Also free shipping and arrived within or about 7 days .
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Quiet, Reliable
Cons: None
