Despite Some Reservations On Its Outward Appearance...
I've held off on writing a review until we finished our yearly wood splitting for the winter, because I felt after going through 6 cords of wood that this would be a more representative review.

When the splitter arrived and I took it out of its packaging I have to say I was certainly not blown away by it outwards appearance. Between the welds, the plastic handles and just the general cosmetic appearance, it certainly didn't look like our previous splitter (DR 5 ton). All that being said, it... more
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Price, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: Low Quality, Looks Like A Chinese Made Product

"At one point I had called looking for some information on the splitters, and was pleasantly surprised that the owner of the company actually spoke with me directly concerning our needs. I can't think of too many companies that actually have the owner available for customer service !"

Not Worth The Money!
Splitter arrived, instructions useless, came with extra "O" rings and a bolt loose in the box with NO mention anywhere as to what the parts were for. Split less than a cord when Hydro oil started to spray out. Called phone number on instruction sheet. Person said I would get response by email. NO response, now calling the given phone number, message says "Number not is service". Am filing dispute with credit card co. I used. This splitter is a foreign made piece of JUNK!!!!!!
Pros: Easy To Use
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, Bad Instructions, Durability

Log Splitter
I have a powerhouse log splitter set up in my garage to split a few logs at a time. It is very convenient because I don't have to start it or put gas in it. Also, it was inexpensive. I was disappointed at first because it wouldn't split the large Persimmon and Gum logs I have. By cutting the top and bottom of large or snarly logs with a skill saw with a rip blade, however, I have been able to split them. Also, any log will split if you split it along the edge instead of the center. If I... more

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

Good Choice
This was a good decision to make this purchase. We had a little trouble with the directions but finally got it together. We split about half a face cord and it really did a good job with no problems. I would recommend it.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Light Weight, Reliable
Cons: Bad Instructions, Packaging

Woodsplitter
I LOVE it. I was able to split Quakie very quickly and easy. Harder woods like Pine and Cedar didn't split very well, but that's not a problem, I can cut them with something else. It's perfect for what I need it for. I did put it on a table. The constant bending over was killing my back. I have recommended this to many friends.
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Use
Cons: Splits Soft Woods Only

Great Purchase
I was able to cut about a half cord of wood in 3 hours....the hardest part is getting up and loading more wood. A great present from my husband! Not sure why we haven't had before, a great purchase.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Light Weight, I'd Buy It Again

Electric Wood Cutter
Very bad instructions, cant see or read. Cheap plastic handle. Broke on arrival. Made my own handle 16 inch long. Galvanize steel, hollow pipe. Painted black. Put rubber bike handles on both ends. Drill 2 -5/16 holes. Put 2 brass bolts through holes. Brass washer in nut on end of bolt/ now that's what you call a handle. Looks nice too. Not that cheap plastic handle that broke.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Light Weight, Quiet
Cons: Bad Instructions, Packaging
