  1 Question
Q: Hi Mike,
I am trying to decide what size log splitter to buy. I like a log splitter that has the catch arms. The other question I have is about the tonage, how do you decide what tonage you need if you do not know what size logs you are going to have? I split logs occasionally, not everyday. In the past I have used a 20 ton and I would like it to be high speed trailerable.

by John Symonds from Massachusetts on August 18, 2011

A: Our Champion 22 to splitter has catch arms. Will will not have a splitter that will be high speed capable. The limit is 45mph. A 20 ton splitter is great for logs 24" or less. Pretty much can do whatever you need.

The Great Northern 11571 2-way splitter is a great way to get the job done fast.

Unlike conventional log splitters, the 11571 will split the wood in half the time. With this machine being a 2-way splitter, you are able to split up to a 24-inch log one way and then another on the return. This truly is a time saving piece of equipment.

Powered by a Honda GC160, the Great Northern 11571 has more than enough power to complete the toughest of tasks. The two stage pump creates up to 20-tons... more

20 Tons Of Sweetness!
I have 12 cords of nasty, twisted green ash to split and this machine makes it a pleasure. Some of this wood is so twisty that I simply can't split it, and I did 7cords by hand last fall of a different wood.

The Honda motor purrs nicely and I can do a full 2 cords per tank. My only beefs are: I can't get the wheel bearing covers on and I am not the only one with this problem. Hopefully LSD will send me a new set because I bent one of them before I gave up.

Shane,
We're sorry- we don't carry replacement parts, but you can give the folks at Great Northern a call, toll free, at 800-822-0295 for any parts and advice you may need.

They may ask for the serial number of your splitter, so be sure to have that handy when you call.

Please be aware that any modifications you make to the splitter may void your warranty.

Totally Happy!!
I've been looking for a log splitter for awhile now. When I saw ones that split in both directions I decided this was the type I had to have, most were in the $2000 range, so I was happy to find this one. The sales staff were very helpful, they kept me up to date on the status of my order by email and gave me a tracking # when it shipped. I used the pay by check option for the discount and it took about 3 weeks for it to arrive. The lift gate charge was well worth it, the driver lowered it... more

Set For The Winter After Three Days.
I checked heavy as a con but I'm glad it is heavy. It is a well built machine. I will reserve the durable description for later on down the road. My wife enjoys splitting and with two people and the "split in both directions" feature you can really go through the rounds quickly. We split Ponderosa, Juniper and Oak up to 30 inches in diameter and I feel we haven't tested the GNE yet. The Honda engine starts easily and runs all day. Couldn't be happier so far.
Happy Splitting,... more

Wow
I spent 3 weeks looking online and reading reviews until I finally made my mind up to purchase the GNE 20 ton log splitter. There were 2 main reasons and they were 1, it had a Honda engine which I was looking for in the splitter, and the size is just perfect. It's not real long and bulky. I used it for the first time last weekend and after splitting about a cord of logs in about an hour I ran out of wood to split and was looking for more. I had a great time using it. The height of the machine... more

3 Years Old
Bought this unit 3 seasons ago, split about 3 cords per season and have not had one issue with it yet. The Honda motor starts great, plenty of power and can split anything. Would recommend it to anyone, and would add its got enough power for any job. I split mainly Oak, Elm, Walnut and even with that stringy Elm, it just plain goes through it with pleasure. Get one, you won't ever regret it.

Sweet Tool Now That I'm 72.
Ordered in Dec.2013. Finally got the Log Splitter put together In Jan 25,2014. Mar.1,2014 Started Splitting.
When I was 71 I did the splitting by Arm Strong. Kept me in shape. Now @ 72 this is a sweet Tool. What I've split so far does the job with no problem. YES I'm A very happy with the 20 Ton Honda powered gas Log splitter. Oh I'm not getting paid to tell what I've said. Yep I highly recommend it.

Nice Machine!
Easy assembly, well built, excellent machine. Nice working height, easy on the back. Split logs and toss them right in the front end loader of my tractor all in one easy process. They never even hit the ground. Two hours of splitting and I had half of my winter's wood supply ready to burn. Powerful - barely slows down even in large diameter gnarly logs. So easy to produce consistent sized split wood regardless of original log size. You will love this machine! Nothing on the market... more

Happy With This Splitter
Arrived intact on pallet. Had wife use tractor to pick it off the truck and bring to the shop since I was at work. Used a chain hoist to unpack and assemble by myself in about and hour and a half. Good directions and unit appears to be very stout. Goods welds and quality materials. The plastic fittings are a bit of a disappointment but under normal use I think they will be fine. Added gas and oil to the Honda and filled the reservoir with hydraulic oil - started 2nd pull. Purged the air and... more

It's So Good There's Nothing To Tell
No sharp edges, holes line up, quality powder coat, and what I really noticed, since I'm a certified inspector, was the quality of cold forming and welding of the parts. Top notch welding will not be found in an inferior product in this day and age.
Pros: Durable, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality

My First Splitter
I am extremely impressed with this machine and it is the best tool I have ever owned. The Honda engine is amazing with easy starting, power, and most importantly fuel economy. I can run it all day and split tons of wood with no concerns at all. The dual action splitting is very useful and has tremendous power. I've not seen a piece of wood it won't split. Easy assembly if you're used to turning wrenches and both oils are easily found at auto parts or farm stores. I highly recommend this... more
