Choosing The Pow'r'kraft 4/7 Ton Log Splitter #65575
I actually enjoy splitting wood with a maul but a difficult shoulder surgery left me needing a log splitter. I perused the internet, comparing models, prices, and reading reviews. I selected the Pow'R'kraft 4/7 ton (65575) and Power Equipment Direct as the vendor. Delivery was prompt. The electric splitter is quieter, more portable, and less expensive than a gasoline model yet still has adequate power. Should I need to operate it in the field, it is easy to connect it to a generator.

Excellent Log Splitter
I received the most amazing gift ever from my brother- the "Pow'R'Kraft" Log Splitter.

It sure makes splitting logs a lot easier and short work of splitting wood. I was a bit skeptical when it arrived, as one third of the box was completely oil stained. I did check it over and the oil on the dip stick was where it should have been, so I'm not sure where the oil stain came from.

I tried it and was amazed at the power it had, and with the two-speed operation it split wood with... more

Great Machine!
I downed a large fir tree and cut it to rounds, 38” in diameter. I couldn’t lift them, so rented a horizontal splitter and my son and I could roll them in close and flop them down under the blade to quarter them. Then my new splitter arrived and I went to work.

It split everything I threw at it. I hadn’t thought about the advantage of “controlled splitting.” With the old splitting maul, getting just the right size firewood was sort of a crap shoot depending on my aim. This splitter... more

I've used gas log splitters in the past and had good results. I read all the reviews on this splitter and then decided to go for it! I must say I am more than pleased with the performance of the splitter. It handled everything I put to it. I am more than pleased with it and would not hesitate to buy again.

Surprising Capability
I was surprised by the power of this splitter, and ease of operation. It is quiet and powerful. I have split Kentucky Coffee Tree, Ash, Walnut, and Norway Maple so far, and will be splitting Hickory very shortly. I was concerned that all of the above-mentioned trees would be challenging as they were all taken down only 1 month before I ordered the splitter. Due to the trees not having aged, or dried, before the splitting operation I kept the lengths to 12 to 16 inches maximum. No problem. ... more

the additional room added to our house in 1980 included an air tight cast iron free standing stove. a chain saw was my only power tool i had for this work. later on a circular saw was used for cutting pallets.

Pow'r'kraft 7 Ton Electric Splitter Amazing!
I just turned 75. Having hand-split 10 or more cords of firewood a year for the past 13 years, I decided it was time to give my body a break. I researched electric log splitters, and based on numerous favorable reviews, went for the Pow'R'Kraft 7 ton electric splitter. It was the best thing I ever did. I just used it for the first time, and was thoroughly impressed. It went through everything I threw at it, including knotty Beech 12 inches in diameter.

Ped--great Customer Service!!
Two years ago I ordered a 20,000 watt generator from PED. It works perfectly and was delivered exactly when promised. Same with the log splitter. I requested a delayed delivery and they accomodated my schedule perfectly. The Pow'R'kraft splitter is a real splitter. It has handled everything I have been able to lift into it with ease. Very well built. I may replace the wheels with a larger tire that would make it easier to move as the unit is fairly heavy....just as it should and needs to... more

What a monster splitter. From the moment I plug this baby in until finished with a little more than a cord of oak, this splitter was all I could have hoped for. Runs quiet and smooth with no trouble handling 3 inch logs up to 16 inch thickness. She ran like a dream! I should have gotten one of these years ago.

Splitter Review
AFTER reading the manual, I purchased the oil. Next I decided to see if it worked, and to my surprise it did. I did not see where it mentions that the oil is already in it.

I opened the vent valve, put in the appropriate wood, and it worked. I did notice that it leaks oil every time it is used, but attributed that to the fact it is a vent. Sad to say, I noticed an oil spill after I finished and closed the vent.

While it did work as advertised, I notice a design flaw that could... more

Excellent Log Splitter
Previously I owned DR 6 ton and 4 ton electric log splitters. The 6 ton model worked fine, but eventually died and DR stopped making them. The 4 ton was not satisfactory. The Power Kraft is very satisfactory. I've split at least 18 inch logs already with no problem. The dual speed feature is very useful. It is safe to use. I give it a very high recommendation. I read all the reviews on this log splitter and there was not one negative review.

I bought the splitter to use for making quarter log pieces into eights. I have lung problems and cannot swing an axe anymore. When I got it the temp outside was cold as it is was winter and the unit should not be used under 41 degrees F. So I moved it onto my back porch which is enclosed and fired up a propane heater. Soon I was splitting my pieces in 75 degree temps without breathing hard anymore. I threw a couple 13 inch wide logs on it and it took them apart easily. Unit switches easily... more

This electric splitter amazed me. It won't split every thing, knots can be a problem but knot always. It split fresh cut Oak 26 inches in diameter after it was cut in half (you couldn't even pick it up until it was cut in half) and 18" plus long. It split 95% of that Oak tree.
I love it I've even used it inside my basement!!!!!!

Best Purchase On This Market!
After weeks of research I finally decided to go with this outfit. Let me tell you- anyone who is in the markt for a REAL wood splitter- don't waste time anywhere else! This company is for real!!

Super fast shipping, best price and the downright BEST $$ I've spent so far this year.

I would (no pun!) buy it a again today if I needed a wood-splitter again.....

This is the only review I have ever left in my life.. But it's worth it because these folks are fair, fast, and professional.

Saw the video of this splitter being used and remembered thinking how that guy must have picked the straightest smoothest log in the world to split.

I took the leap of faith and ordered it, mostly because the two year warranty. When I finally used it, I was convinced.

I've split logs from 6 inches to 30 inches across, if it binds up, I rotate the log 1/4 turn and try again. I've YET to find a log I couldn't split. If I can lift it onto the splitter, it'll work.

This is my first mechanical log splitter so I have no experience with other splitters. It works well and has sufficient power for my needs. But, I will caution first time buyers to head ALL of the safety warnings. I have had numerous situations where a log or the split logs have been thrown from the splitter. I have only been hit once and I now stay well behind the splitter. Most of the problems are with logs not cut square. Another surprise was with seasoned straight grained it splits easily.... more

Small But Solid
I looked for months at different brands and types. I do a fair amount of splitting for our wood stove and wanted something that I could operate in the garage. Two power settings is a bonus, especially for smaller jobs. Heed the directions on two tips, don't operate in cold days, under 45, and with bigger pieces with knots don't go past 5 second rule. My son and I have split a few times already with good results, friends are sending some wood my way in spring, can't wait to set up for next year.

I had initially bought a Homelite 4 ton for $300 but it was not quite enough power and Home Depot let me bring it back and credited my account. I am going through a learning curve researching wood splitters. This machine is doing much better for me, but, of course, will not handle an oak log with numerous knots. One would have to upgrade by another $500 to a 12 or 14 ton gas powered machine to really take care of business. I realize that some logs I will still have to manually split at... more

My wife and I bought a house last year on a couple of acres full of Ponderosa pine. The previous owner had cut down about 20 trees and left the logs stacked in the trees.

The house came with a wood burning stove, so I went out and bought a maul and wedge and tried splitting some of the wood by hand - not a good idea.

I did some research, read several reviews and ended up buying the Pow'R'Kraft. It came in a little over a week and right out of the box I split about a cord of wood the... more

Great Alternative To Gas Splitter
We were pleasantly surprised at how well this splitter performed, even on 12 inch logs. It did well with both dry wood and newly cut wood. I could say that a down side is how heavy it is - it is hard to pick up and put on a surface high enough so that you aren't down on your knees on the ground - but I'm glad it's heavy, its very sturdy and durable.

Love This Splitter
I was skeptical of an electric splitter but based on lots of good reviews, I bought this one. I split all my wood for the winter in just 5 hours - Maple, Cherry, Ash, Locust and Oak. Some of the Cherry was over 20" in diameter, the splitter still plowed thru it. I love the two forward speeds and auto return. The size is nice too. It can be stored in the basement as it is much smaller than a gas powered model. I'd recommend this splitter to anyone who splits wood for home occasional... more

I am a 60-year-old woman who thinks she's still 30, so I HAD to split the available wood from fallen trees in the neighborhood after Superstorm Sandy... so I needed to buy a log splitter. I did my homework to find the best deal/best value, not necessarily the cheapest splitter out there.

Satisfied Customer
Working with Log Splitters Direct was a pleasure.
They understand the value of providing great customer service. Delivery was excellent.
I have not used this log splitter yet since the temperatures have been below 41 degrees in NJ.
I did buy a 2"x5" Kat's heating pad however, to keep the oil warm so that I can use this in temperatures below 41 degrees.
I just need to get clarification as to where to exactly place this pad on the unit. Any suggestions?

First Log Splitter
I'm very pleased with tthe unit I purchased. It was delivered within a week.

The unit has enough power to do all the logs that I have tried to split, this includes some Cherry, Elm, Maple and Locust.

The unit is low to the ground, so I built a stand out of 1/8" x 2" x 2" steel angle iron.

Happy With This Purchase
I recently upgraded to a high efficiency wood burning insert. The insert works great but "wants" smaller pieces of wood.

80% of the split wood delivered needs to be split one more time. I used the Pow R Kraft for the first time this month on 2 cords of (already split) mixed hardwood. I had no problems at all.

I would estimate that 35% of the wood would not split on the 4 ton speed...but did split on the 7 ton speed. I am so glad I didn't try to save a few bucks by buying a 4... more

Incredible Power
This splitter was impressive in the reviews I read before purchase and even more impressive in its power and performance. It made a believer out of me!

I have split about six cords of pine and aspen in the past couple of weeks and it has performed flawlessly and not failed to split logs even up to eighteen inches with ease.

Most of the time I am able to use the faster speed as well.

Good Job For The $$$
I'm very satisfied with the Pow'R'kraft log splitter I recently purchased. It does everything I hoped it would do.

Several reviews had stated it sits to close to the ground. I solved this problem by mounting it in a wagon rated for 1,000 lbs. It now sits at the perfect height and is even easier to transport.

I wouldn't hestitate to recommend the Pow'R'kraft to anyone wanting a splitter to have at the house.

I ordered my powr kraft from the very nice folks at Logsplitters Direct, ordered on Monday afternoon and they said it would be delivered on Friday, I thought yea right, but it was delivered on Friday by R & L carriers in perfect shape and ready to splite wood.

This splitter is unreal, it splits 14" oak like butter, I also had a 13" piece elm, no problem, I couldn't stop using it, this thing acts more like a 10 ton than a 7 ton.

Woodsplitter
Woodsplitter has worked fine so far. I split some elm that is very wiry, and it did fine. It will not split big knots or snarly Y's. Straight wood splits easily.

It is quiet and the automatic return is nice. It returns with the electric motor off so you hear nothing. It is heavy, so it is not super easy to move around. Works best on an elevated platform.

I do not like the 2 handed "safety " operation but I will get used to it. Overall good so far, it does seem like a well... more

Overall Happy
Just got mine. Tried it on straight elm ( a stringy snarly wood ) it worked fine . Would not split wood with a big knot or a snarly " Y ". I just put them aside.

You do need to make sure wood is cut straight so when push plate is against the wood it is even and not slanted ( because block was cut on an angle ).

I really like the auto return. Very limited noise when running and no noise on the return. Do not like having to use 2 hands to operate but I will get used to it.

Powerful Indeed
Purchased this guy a couple of years ago and have used yearly since. One of the only down sides to it is how low it sits to the ground, hence I purchased a heavy duty cart and straped it on it to move it around and also to raise it up about a foot when I am using it. It is top heavy so I move and use with extreme caution.

We used it to split a piece of black wallnut that was at least 24 inches across if not more, you can go to the youtube web site and type in DUDESRAD and click on the ... more

I searched several electric model splitter and chose the POW R KRAFT 65575. I am so glad I did. The 7 ton slow power or the 4 ton fast is easy to use with a handy lever. I was going cheap and get a 4 ton. It would have not been big enough. I am amazed at the power this machine has, WOW. I split wood right out of the box, after reading the instructions about releasing the bleeding screw was all I had to do. I split some green 12 inch red oak with knots it was no problem.

I burn 5-6 cords every winter. This years delivery was big pieces which fit in my stove but I could not "stuff" it full because no smaller pieces to fill the voids.

I bought this splitter to re-split some of the logs to get smaller pieces to fill around larger ones.

Stove is in my basement so I was looking for a good electric unit.

Big Surprise
I recently purchased the Pow'R'kraft 4/7 ton electric log splitter because I did not want another gas engine to maintain.

I was aprehensive about the ability to split large diameter logs with only 7 tons on tap. Well....I dont' know why, but this thing actually works! It is rated for 12" diameter, 20 inch long logs, but is capable of much more.

I have been splitting GREEN maple and beech , some up to 30" in dia. For the largest pieces, I use a makeshift ramp to roll the... more

How I Am Learning To Love My New Log Splitter
I've only had it for a couple weeks but already have split over 2 cords of freshly felled white oak. This tree was over 3' in diameter at the base and approx. 50 feet tall.

So far I have been able to split pieces that are approx. 15" in length and 10-12 inches in diameter using the 7 ton setting. Those that are larger in diameter I split in half using wedges and a sledge hammer before splitting on the splitter.

I have mounted the splitter on a couple of cement blocks to raise it... more

Back Yard Splitting
I purchased this splitter for several reasons. One, I was tired of paying for split wood, an item I had available to me but was paying for every year.

Two, the quiet of an electric splitter got rave reviews from my neighbors, and three, the power of this model was more than adequate for logs 20"and below.

So in one day of splitting, I am set for next year's burning season. I would recommend this splitter for the back yard wood splitter.

Best Value
I am quite happy. The log splitter was ordered on a Monday morning and I received it on Thursday.

It is quite powerful and so far and split everything even pieces of wood far bigger than recommended. I have had several other splitters and this one seems to have the best value.

I have only split about 3 cords of wood with it so I am not sure about long term use.

Pleasantly Surprised At How Powerful It Is
We received the logsplitter in good condition, the trucker delivering the logsplitter was very polite and helpful.

When we tried out the machine for the first time we were pleasantly surprised at how powerful it was. The wife said she can't wait to use it on her own when I am away at work.

We buy firewood a log-truck load at a time so we go through a fair amount of wood and have been looking forward to not swinging the axe for some time. Thanks for an excellent product.

I had a pile of wood ready to split when the truck arrived. I met the driver at the street with my 4 wheeler, signed the papers and was on my way in less than 5 minutes.

I worked through the pile in a couple hours -- including stacking the split wood.

I had a piece of red oak that was about 22" diameter that I could barely dent with the maul. I saved it for last. With a little care it handled the oak just fine.

Good Splitter
This spliiter was bought by my Dad for me as gift. I've used it for about four cords of wood now.

It works very well for about 90% of the wood I need to split. Mostly cedar and pinon pine. Only the biggest, knottiest pieces won't split.

I would recommend this to others. The only downside I can come up with is the wheels are narrow and kinda cheap.

I cracked one with a log I tossed near the splitter, and can't find a replacement locally that fits.

Love The Splitter
I love the splitter. It split year-old, still green pinon logs very well- some up to 16 inches in diameter.

The largest ones required flipping the piece repeatedly, but eventually it split 99% of what I needed to do.

My one complaint is that the wheels are cheap and the stance of the wheels could be wider for more stable transport around the yard.

I just got my Pow-r-craft splitter today. It took about 1.5 weeks to get to my house once I ordered it. It came by semi truck on a pallet.

I opened it up and read the instructions and I was splitting wood in a few minutes. It definitely worked well on the stumps I had laying around waiting to be split.

My wife and I knocked out about 20 stumps in about an hour. It worked great, except a couple of stumps won over the machine's power due to the number of knots in them. I just tossed... more

Easy To Handle
This handy splitter runs on regular household current and splits smaller, seasoned wood with ease- and lets you enjoy a warm fire in the fireplace with no stress or strain.

A built-in handle and oversize wheels make it easy to move around the garage or heated barn. It won't work well if it's left out in freezing temperatures, but then again, neither do most of us.

It's especially handy if your fire wood needs to be pared down to fit in a fireplace, chimnea, or fire pit.

I Would Recommend This To Anyone
I received my Pow R Kraft 7 ton log splitter in good order.

I only had to uncrate it, read the instructions, and plug it in. It works great and split everything I had: oak, juniper, and some pine.

A couple of the juniper logs were 16-17" diameter. In the 7- ton position it split without hesitation.

I would recommend the Pow R Kraft log splitter to anyone.

It is said that a man should not buy a women anything with an electric cord and plug attached, unless perhaps it is a Tesla roadster, well this log splitter comes pretty close, perhaps not as fast 0-60, but lots of power to get logs split quickly and efficiently.
