Nice Unit
Works great, order the leg kit with it. Split 20" dia. wet birch no problem, you may have to rotate the log but the motor was never stressed.

Needful
The stand is a must for ease of wood handling purposes and saving your back. It's a little flimsy in the wheels because of weight and difficult to move around.

Hard To Move
It's make the job much easier the height is perfect. But it is not the easiest piece of equipment to move around.

On solid ground like the driveway not to bad but in a yard it is tough. I move mine maybe 50" to 100" feet from the house that the hardest part of the job. But once I am there does good job.
Cons: Difficult To Use

Michael,
Thanks for the review. I know that the stands make the working height easier, but that also changes the center of gravity when moving them around too. So I understand that moving it on uneven ground is a bit tougher than without the stand. If you have any questions feel free to let us know. You might also want to connect on Facebook - sometimes customers send in pictures of modifications they make that might spark an idea or two for you.

Thanks for buying a BOSS!

Sturdy, One-handed Operation, Nice Stand
I have used my friend's electric log splitter too much already, and decided to get my own. After looking at his, another one, and several in stores, I have come to the conclusion that the motor and hydraulic ram assembly all come from the same manufacturer. Therefore any of the 5-ton electric splitters will perform similarly instead pay attention to the details.

I went with the Boss Industrial model, primarily because it allows one-handed operation. Most other splitters require that you... more

Albert,
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Based on comments like yours, we have redesigned our 5 ton model and our stand to make it easier to remove and install. Your review was very detailed and the time and effort are appreciated.

Thank you for choosing a Boss, and for telling people a few of the reasons why you did!

Great Legs!
I purchased the legs for my Boss 7 ton splitter and love the added height. It took less than 30 minutes to install. Had no filing to do on the inside of the legs as someone else mentioned. My only issue was that when the wheels were put on the original legs, it pinched them a little out of round. A dead blow hammer to force them in easily solved the issue. The other review also mention replacing the axle with a 24" bolt for stability. I WILL be doing that. It'll be much easier to move.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Unstable

Gary,
Great legs! That headline caught me by surprise. I am glad the extra height is working well for you. We will look into a wider axle bolt with engineering. Curious why you said you would buy it again, and yet you checked that you do not recommend the product? If there is something we can do to help, please let us know.

Thank you for buying a Boss - and the legs to go with it!

Not Very Stable
I bought a Boss 7-ton splitter recently, and purchased the stand with the splitter. While the stand is very sturdy there were a few issues. First, I spent about an hour filing off all of the flash on the inside of the splitter legs before I could slide the extension legs into the frame. Expect some assembly time on your new purchase. The bigger issue was the rear axle with the wheels. The front legs bend outwards so that the extension legs are about twice as wide as the original legs. Since the... more
