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.

Made A Simple Protective Table To Protect Engine And Fittings.
This is my second review of the GNE two way splitter. I took the splitter to a buddy's place in the woods of Northeast Michigan to help him stock up on wood last weekend. We had about ten guys to all pitch in a hand with the work. The splitter was fast enough to keep three people consistently busy feeding it wood and loading the split logs into a couple of pickups all day. Seven hours of work used only two tanks of gas, and we split, hauled, and stacked over 20 face cords of firewood in that... more

Great Splitter
Had this splitter delivered in no time - but man is it heavy. No way you can put together with one person, even two a challenge as you need to prop up back end when bolting together so third person helpful. After the main pieces are bolted together the rest is a snap. Wheel covers a bugger to get on, should have put in freezer, bent one trying to hammer on.

Great splitter - well constructed, except for a couple vinyl fittings I will replace with brass. Other than that, well worth the... 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

Very Easy To Use!
I have only used the splitter twice since receiving it, but can say that it is very easy to assemble and very easy to use.
I have split about 2 cords so far with flawless results. It is compact enough to roll right in the garage next to the other tools. I love it so far. Honda motors are a must. Another great feature are the holding racks. They save your back by not having to catch each piece before falling. I thought the cost was a little high at first, but have since changed my mind. It is... more

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.

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.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Reliable, Features
