Log Splitters Direct Recommended

The Powerhouse FX128-Z will split logs up to 20 long and 12 in diameter. The diameter may vary based on type of wood and its moisture level (length of time its been cut). When the weather turns cold you can wheel it indoors and split in comfort. You may damage the pump if you operate in temperatures below freezing. Keep it dry and above freezing and you should have trouble-free splitting for years to come.

You will need access to a 120 volt 20 amp circuit to power this splitter due... more

Great Wood Splitter
I was skeptical about an electric splitter since I only used a gas powered one before. I tried it because I didn't like the noise, heat and fumes of a gas engine. I was pleasantly surprised at the ease of use and the low noise level of the electric one. There is a size range for the splitter which was a problem for my large pieces but that is common for all splitters.

The work went extremely fast. I made a connector for the dual control handles so I could easily press the lever with one... more

I Love This Thing!!!
I absolutely love my wood splitter. I have a camp and have had many trees taken down and hate to see them sit and rot. There is no way I could split them by hand.

First of all, the shipping was free and delivery was right to my door (in the woods). Setup was very easy and the wheels make it so easy to move to the work site.

I love this because it seems so safe compared to chainsaws and hatchets. Being electric is certainly easy.
You load the log, pull the handle and SLOWLY the plate... more

All The Power I Need
I bought this splitter to replace my speeco 5 Ton. It would kick it self out frequently and I was restarting all the time splitting fir and larch. No problem power wise with FX128-Z. BUT, what a useless setup with the two hand hydraulic system.

I did not use the machine until I modified it for one hand hydraulic operation, also improved the air bleed screw and added 20" bicycle wheels and tires for easy moving.

I Borrowed My Neighbor's Last Year And Had To Get My Own.
After using my neighbors, I decided I needed one. After checking others out, the price and quality, this is the way to go. My experienced neighbor said, don't go less than 7 tons. I love how easily I can make my kindling, plus....

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

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

"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 !"

Log Splitter For Weekend Cabin
The log splitter works great and is very quiet. I was splitting some short rounds and they didn't split all the way, so I discovered the best way to do this was to duct tape a 4 x 4 block of wood onto the pusher...so that the shorter pieces would be pushed further into the wedge. That was all it took to get clean splits. This small 4 x 4 was about 5 inches long and gave me the added reach.

Many Questions
I purchased this product because the starter on my gas splitter broke and I had problems getting the part. I am a 73 year old woman who needs to put in four cords of firewood in for winter.

Questions:

What is the purpose of the two handles? When splitting wood, you frequently need one hand on the log! I stuck a wrench between the handles and covered it with duct tape to allow operation with one hand.

Why are the wheels set higher than the barrel of the motor? Makes them pretty... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Light Weight
Cons: Bad Instructions

Dale, the Log Splitter Expert

Gabriele,
The reasoning behind the two handles is purely for safety reasons and really nothing more. The idea behind it is the hope the operators will not leave any hands in the way of the ram and possible splintering (In some ways you could say it is the lawyers at work!). It sounds like you have made your own adjustments, while we always want to advise people in safety, just be careful.

In terms of the wheels being set higher than the motor, this is something which has baffled us as well here at Log Splitters Direct and unfortunately just seems to be a design flaw which has been suggested to Powerhouse.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to give us a call and we would be happy to assist.
