Log Splitters Direct Recommended

This convenient electric model is strong enough to split logs the size most of us burn at home and light enough to easily be moved to different locations. At 110lbs this little splitter really packs a punch. Using 2,700 psi of hydraulic pressure you can split logs 10 in diameter and 20.5 long. Log diameter may vary based on wood type and how long ago the tree was cut down.

One hand lever operation with no additional button to push frees up your second hand to move previously split logs... more

Not Your Normal Use
We needed a safe clean way to split our plants in a greenhouse to prepare plants for spring. This concept with a little additions worked way above our expectations.

The machine is so easy to use and very durable. Clean operation and safe for all levels of employees to use. Could not be happier.

Just A Little Disappointed
Based on the fact that I have never owned or used a log splitter, take this with that in mind. The splitter works very well. Is built very well and splits logs very well.

The only thing I regret is that all logs MUST be cut exactly straight. If not most won't split. Also, it will not split any green wood, even a 5" x 15" log.

The aged logs, even ones larger than advised, split easily. I guess I should have read the manual before I bought it. Might have bought a 7-ton.

Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store, Durable, Quiet
Cons: Will Not Split Green Wood
William Recommends This Boss Industrial Product

Brand Rep
William,
We appreciate your review. You are correct that green wood is harder to split, and a 7 ton could have helped out with that. If the logs are cut at a hard angle you can try to place the sharper angle on the wedge side so that the ram cap "the pushing piece" has a flatter edge to push on.

At extreme angles it is hard to get a solid push from the ram, as you are trying to push the whole log with just a small bit of log on one side of the ram. It simply can't get a grip and will push the log off the side, or over the ram cap depending on how you have the cut angle positioned. So a straighter cut will keep it on the machine. If you have a lot of logs cut on diagonals like this, keep and small hand ax nearby so you can make a quick cut to make a flat spot for the ram to push against. It may be a quick fix to get them to stay on the machine, and the long term solution is to cut the logs with a bit straighter cut so they will sit and stay on the log splitter for you.

If you have other questions, or I can provide you with any photos or additional info, please just let me know.

Thanks for buying a Boss!

Save My Aching Back
Many years I hand split wood for my stove. Then I took a hard look at the pile that needed splitting and said "I really cannot do this", I was overwhelmed. I ordered the 5 ton BOSS splitter and it made short and easy the dreaded project.

Very little set up and short get started directions. Very well made and ver up to the task. - I am looking forward to the next downed tree.

Great Splitter
Very nice splitter. Bought the stand to go with it. So glad I did. I really like the one hand control for the splitter. Helps when splitting logs that are not perfectly round. I use it in my garage to split starter wood. Would give a 5 star rating.

Better Than Expected
Shipping was fast and easy, couldn't believe shipping was free !!! I was surprised at how quiet this unit is, I purchased this so I could split firewood at my leisure, I get firewood rounds from a local sawmill and have used their 20 ton splitter to split, only I could only use it on days they were closed which I understand of course but between cutting the rounds, splitting and loading into my truck, taking them home, unloading, stacking-- was getting to me.

Especially since I try to get... more

Rodger,
Glad you like your splitter. We have had similar responses about the dip stick so we now make one with a hex bolt head instead of the allen wrench. If you contact our parts department i'm sure they have them in stock. Thanks for buying a Boss.

Does Whant I Want It To
Bought a smaller wood stove and needed to further split oak and hickory that has been split before. This wood has been in the wood shed for 4 years and is dry. Also needed to split into kindling.

This splitter is exactly what I needed for the job. I am 70 years old and my aim with the maul isn't what it used to be but the splitter is pretty precise. Plus I can use it in inside my shop where it is dry and no snow. Have been able to split several pieces that I couldn't split by hand by... more

Great Value For Small Jobs
I wanted to purchase a medium duty electric splitter for two reasons. First, I usually purchase pre-split wood and sometimes want to further split the pieces to provide shorter burn time or a variety of sizes for my fires. I was tired of splitting by hand, so I looked for a lightweight electric model I could use in the basement. Secondly, my neighbor felled a tree and I got some of the limbs and wanted to split them.

After researching several sites and models, I ordered the Boss EC5T20... more

Jack,
Great review with lots of detail!
To address a couple of your cons: We are upgrading wheels and this should help with a bit of stability.

When checking the oil, we recommend unscrewing the handle so you do not rest the unit on the handle alone. Alternatively you can place a small block of wood under the machine to prevent the handle from taking the weight.

The third thing you listed as a con is actually our internal overload protection. If you place a log in the machine that takes more force than allowed, the machine stops pushing automatically so you don't blow a seal or o-ring by forcing the machine to hard. You have to cycle the power so that you realize what happened, and can adjust the log accordingly. Many times just rotating it or flipping it over will allow the splitter to do the job.

Thanks again for the review - it is very helpful to others considering our product.
Thank you for buying a Boss!
