The 8 Ton ED8T20 is one of the best log splitters on the market, but don't take our word for it. Read the reviews posted here by your peers.

The Splitter That Does
Mounted this gem in a 9 cu ft riding mower trailer. Added side boards to prevent split wood from falling to ground. It split year old Pine up to 18" x 18" nicely, however 3 pcs my my hand wedge n maul wouldn't even split.

Powerful But Quit Working
I bought this log splitter and the stand/roller in November of 2014. The reviews on this website were great and I felt this would be a great unit. From the beginning I was impressed with the power. However, right away I noticed that the ram when going from front to back would continue to run when I let go of the handle and that the motor would stall when it hit the end of its cycle. The only way to get it to work again was to re-start the unit.

I called the representative since it was still... more

Todd,
UPDATE: Machine is up and running like new. Thanks again Todd for buying a Boss!



I am happy to help you with your machine. I think I also know why your machine is acting the way it is.

If the machine continued to travel, the handle wasn't releasing and returning back to neutral. Perhaps it was rubbing on the guard or something that was not allowing it to return?

As for the machine needing to be turned off - if the machine hit the end of it's cycle and pressure was still being applied. Essentially trying to push the rod through the end of the cylinder. Trying to push metal against metal.

The machines overload protector was being triggered, and that is why you had to turn it off, and let the overload protector reset before it will continue working. It is a safety device that is built into the machine. It was doing exactly what it was supposed to do to protect the internal seals.

I am assuming that is also why the machine is now moving slow - you have probably blown a seal in the cylinder or valve by repeatedly pushing the pressure limits once the machine hit the end of its cycle. It is not made to touch the blade on purpose, there is a safety space between the wedge and pushing block to protect users and the machine.

You can call us directly at 800-780-2677.

Thank you for buying a Boss,

John

Can't Beat The Customer Service
I've cut about 1.5 cords thus far with the 8-Ton. The logs have been oversized per what is recommended and with plenty of knots. The 8-ton has handled it fine. I was concerned if the splitter would have enough power, but it has handled whatever I've thrown at it just fine.

The design is simple, straightforward and the unit seems to be built to last. Having the option to split either direction is nice and keeps things moving.

Boss has made some improvements to the unit. They now provide... more

Great Log Splitter
This is my first Log Splitter so it will take some time to get a good feel for it. But as for right now It's just what I needed. I have a smaller wood stove it uses a smaller log (max. 15" and 4" round) I had 2 cords of split /seasoned wood that needed to be split again. I am splitting it as I am burning it. So all is done inside .

That is a big plus! The way it was shipped was great. It came it a steel frame carton. wow. I made a stand with the steel cage it came in great! Was... more

Better Than Expected
Split all my logs, easy to use. Never had a log splitter before, so I can't compare one to another. I did feel safe using it, my wife also split some logs with out any problems, we are both in our 60's. Tired of having to use gas all the time, mixing and adding stabilizer in fuel, more power than I need. Only had it a short time so I can't account for its durability, seems solid and well built.
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations

Boss-8 Is Great! :))
Very Courteous folks when I ordered. Delivery truck driver very courteous as well. Helped me load onto my trailer. I put unit on porch deck on a wooden bench. Very easy to work with. Some what noisy (motor). Splits seasoned Locust rounds easily. Purchased a cover for it and it fits over the splitter and the wooden bench so rain will not get to it. The dual action feature is a dream to use. My neighbor came over and tried it out on Locust. He was amazed. He really liked the dual action...not... more

Thomas,
Thank you for the review Tom. I hope your neighbor doesn't bother you too much when he comes over to borrow it, again and again. The cover is a great idea, and we should look into that for all of our machines as an option.

Need A Log Spliter?
I was in need for a splitter my health isn't very good. I bought this splitter thinking this is gonna do the job. I was right ,it works great! The on switch stays on keeping the machine ready to work every time your ready to work. The right and left splitters saves time by not having to wait for the ram to reset. It's a little heavy, but I think that has to do with this splitter being capable to make short work of a large pile of logs. Yes this splitter is a winner!
Pros: Easy To Use, Durable, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: Heavy

Thank you for the great review. The 8 ton does have some weight to it, and that is for stability and power. We don't make throw away machines, we make machines to perform and last.
We think it's a winner too!

Easy To Use By Myself, Wife, Granddad, & Granny!
We just got this boss double 8 and plugged it in to our A/C outlet , a 120v dedicated line, and it works like a champ. We all took turns operating it and filled our whole wood shed (3cords) in a weekend. Everyone thought it was easy and straightforward and fast due to double action wedges. I did have to tighten some of the screws after a bit of use, though. I dragged it up the hill to my house and lifted it onto a low table for use (half a side at a time). I love that it requires zero... more

Leo,
I hope you are not making Granddad and Granny split too much wood. I imagine they did their fair share the old fashion way. However, I am happy to see that you have turned your log splitter into a family bonding opportunity! I am not sure we have that listed as one of our product features or benefits yet.

3 cords in one weekend - sounds like you worked that machine pretty good! Glad everyone is happy with it.

Thank you for buying a Boss!

Are You Kidding Me???
I've been splitting wood for heat by hand for 16 years. I finally decided that my rotator cuffs have had enough and it was time to modernize. I spent a lot of time comparing features and prices all over the web. I wanted a splitter that would be easy for the wife to use if I became incapacitated due to my clumsiness. That ruled out anything that ran on gas, had to sit outside, or God forbid had a pull start. This Boss unit seemed to fit the bill. Let me say that shipping from this site is... more
