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

Not Repairable
After having this unit for 2 years in need of repair. Unable to get it serviced in my area. Call customer service, they sent me picture of what they think is the problem--their tech is in China- told parts center will contact me after 2 weeks no contact -keep e-mail them no answer.
Cons: Bad Instructions, Low Quality, No Repair Center Available In Long Island --poor Customer Service

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

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

Little Giant
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.

Great Workhorse
Its so easy to use that my wife and son have used it more than I have. I've been splitting maple and pine very easily. Sometimes a 4x4 block is needed to get a little more stroke. We have split about a cord of wood already with no issues. Tighten all the plugs, they come a little loose and seep.

Wow!!
Being a right mid-thigh recent amputee, I still needed to split wood. Green and aged gum is the hardest of the hardest, but being close to the ground allows me to easily maneuver wood into the splitter. Excellent for my needs.
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: Bad Instructions

Electric Splitter
This log splitter exceeded all my expectations. Worked like a charm. Split several logs for approximately 1-1/2 hrs in record speed with very little effort and was amazed by this light weight, easily functioning splitter . I have enough wood split for the next two years.
Happy with this amazing log splitter.
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store, Exceeded Expectations, Light Weight

Many Questions
I purchased this product because the starter on my gas splitter broke and I had problems getting the part. I am a 73 year old woman who needs to put in four cords of firewood in for winter.

Questions:

What is the purpose of the two handles? When splitting wood, you frequently need one hand on the log! I stuck a wrench between the handles and covered it with duct tape to allow operation with one hand.

Why are the wheels set higher than the barrel of the motor? Makes them pretty... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Light Weight
Cons: Bad Instructions
Gabriele Recommends This Powerhouse Product
Bob, the Log Splitter Expert
Product Expert
Gabriele,
The reasoning behind the two handles is purely for safety reasons and really nothing more. The idea behind it is the hope the operators will not leave any hands in the way of the ram and possible splintering (In some ways you could say it is the lawyers at work!). It sounds like you have made your own adjustments, while we always want to advise people in safety, just be careful.

In terms of the wheels being set higher than the motor, this is something which has baffled us as well here at Log Splitters Direct and unfortunately just seems to be a design flaw which has been suggested to Powerhouse.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to give us a call and we would be happy to assist.

Horrible Instructions And Support
I am relatively mechanical but with the instructions that came with the unit, it might as well have been printed in Chinese. Called support and still have not heard back. Took over an hour to figure out how to assemble. Ram doesn't go all the way, need to add 4X4 block to completely split logs.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price
Cons: Bad Instructions

Great Little Splitter
Had tried a neighbors electric 5 ton, it worked pretty well. Saw the 7 ton on your website and ordered. Arrived quickly and after minor assembly it was splitting wood. 16"x21" no problem. Larger pieces took a few passes to get through but finally did. Portability is great and to be able to split inside is a plus, worked well off a generator. For the price this is a good buy.
Pros: Price, Easy To Store, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable
Cons: Larger Wheels Would Make It Easier To Move Around In The Woods
