The Powerhouse FX128-Z 7-ton electric log splitter helps you split your firewood quickly and easily. Split logs as large as 12 inches in diameter by 20 inches long with the all-steel, 2-way wedge.

The Powerhouse FX128-Z runs off standard household current, so you can split wood outside or inside a garage or shed so you're out of the cold. There is no noise or harsh fumes to deal with.

The Powerhouse FX128-Z is well balanced, and with the main weight towards the axle so it's very... more

Great Wood Splitter
I was skeptical about an electric splitter since I only used a gas powered one before. I tried it because I didn't like the noise, heat and fumes of a gas engine. I was pleasantly surprised at the ease of use and the low noise level of the electric one. There is a size range for the splitter which was a problem for my large pieces but that is common for all splitters.

The work went extremely fast. I made a connector for the dual control handles so I could easily press the lever with one... more

Purchased as a Christmas present for my husband. He went to use it New Years Day and the hydraulic fluid leaked everywhere. Still haven't received satisfaction from Sears or vendor.

I Love This Thing!!!
I absolutely love my wood splitter. I have a camp and have had many trees taken down and hate to see them sit and rot. There is no way I could split them by hand.

First of all, the shipping was free and delivery was right to my door (in the woods). Setup was very easy and the wheels make it so easy to move to the work site.

I love this because it seems so safe compared to chainsaws and hatchets. Being electric is certainly easy.
You load the log, pull the handle and SLOWLY the plate... more

Compact And Powerful
Have had our splitter a short time, but have treated it to much work. It is a powerful little machine. We have split two cords of wood with no strain and no issues. Cannot speak to longevity yet, but we are impressed with the Powerhouse so far.

"I was hesitant to order a machine like this from an online vendor. But their website was excellent, the info on the product was thorough and ordering was a snap. Our Powerhouse was actually delivered a week early and with no problems! The small amount of assembly was easily done with simple tools. I highly recommend Log Splitters Direct."

I cut 6 cords a year so this splitter comes in very handy. It works really well. The only thing I did different from what I see in other reviews is buy a 20 amp 12 gauge heavy duty 25 ft cord, which makes it stronger.

My Ax Will Get Rusty Now....
I am getting to an age where the joy of chopping wood is not a joy any more. So I went searching for a wood splitter. Read reviews and opinions and decided on an electric one. I was totally in the dark. I was going to purchase one for around 7 to 8 hundred dollars figuring the more it cost the better it is.

Then I started reading about the Powerhouse 7-ton, 3 hp Horizontal Electric log Splitter and I was impressed. The price was $400. I liked what I read but what really did it for me... more

Works Great
I have used the splitter and it works very well. if a piece of wood is too big or too heavy, I split it with a maul first and the log splitter does the rest. Makes it easy.

It's A Keeper
This is not the biggest fish in the pond but it puts up a good fight. So far I have split about one half cord of live Oak with only the biggest pieces stopping the machine cold (about 12 inch with knots). The rig is so easy to move around and store. I run it off a 15 amp breaker via a 20 ft. extension cord without issue.

Assembly was a snap and the unit came here promptly from PED. The thin metal log keeper rails bent down some I guess because the live Oak is so crooked and heavy, but that... more
