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.

Objective Review
Bought the Boss 5 ton from Log Splitters Direct and received it within a day. When I took it out of the box there were problems evident from the manufacturer. The inside and outside rim on a rear wheel was bent so bad the unit would not roll. The box was in great shape when received so I don't think it was Fed Ex who caused the damage.

Then looking at the support rods welded to the end of the piston - they were cockeyed. not parallel. After having that happen at the start of the Labor... more

Joe,
I agree - Kudos to LogSplittersDirect - they are great. As for our guy who told you to pound it with a hammer - he is no longer with us, he is now out pounding the pavement looking for a new career.

I am sorry that you caught him on his way out the door, he was not taking care of customers to our "much higher than that" standard!

As to the shipping - the boxes hold up great, but when the box is dropped by shipping companies, all of the weight of the machine pushes down on the axle and bends the rim as the wheel impacts the ground - without bending up the box. We have run tests with both UPS and FedEx, and when you drop 100 lbs on a small metal wheel rim they don't hold up very well. We have switched wheels 3 times trying to find a solution - but unless we up the manufacturing cost and drastically upgrade the wheel density we are at their mercy. We have resorted to shipping out replacements and charging back the freight companies. They know they do it, but they just keep doing it, and we don't have any other options for shipping when they both are guilty of it.

I appreciate you buying a Boss, and the 5 ton is our entry level machine - let me know if you have any problems.

Regards,
John

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

A Great Decision For Me
Great decision for me as I have some shoulder and back issues. It made splitting wood fun. I was able to split to the size I wanted and also made lots of kindling. Easy to use and directions easy to follow. Just a real labor saver. The price was most attractive.
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Quiet, Fast
Cons: None

This little log splitter does not know it is little.

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!
