Log Splitters Direct Recommended

Simple and efficient is the best way to describe the YARDMAX YS0552. Great for anyone looking to easily split wood inside or out. The YS0552 provides 5-tons of splitting power and saves your energy and back from doing it by hand.

Powered by a 15-amp electric motor, this 5-ton splitter allows any user to split in the comfort of a garage or shed or outside. Since it runs off a standard 120-Volt household outlet, it can be used just about anywhere there is power.

YARDMAX really thought... more

So Far Very Pleased, Have Split About A Cord Of Oak
I did add larger wheels (10") and added a "U" shaped handle made out of 3/4" conduit pipe (local hardware store used a pipe bender to make the "U" for me....now it's extremely easy to move anywhere and on any terrain.
Cost was about $30. to do both....makes it a very high quality splitter.
Pros: Price, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Features

It Does The Job And Seems To Have Plenty Of Power
Surprising power for an electric splitter. I wish that it could be operated with one hand so that you could position the wood with the other hand. Also the plate that holds the wood after splitting needs to be attached more securely. Otherwise, I'm very happy with this unit.
Pros: Price, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again

So Far Fantastic Tool
I bought this to split firewood for our sauna. What sold me on this model was the built-in stand. People who bought other electrics commented about building a stand or putting on saw horses. This is definitely a back saver.

I used it once and it is easier than a maul, and quicker for me. I considered a kinetic model. The stroke time and return time with this model concerned me.

That concern was unfounded for three reasons: 1) The wood splits quickly such that you don't need to... more

Great Deal For The Price!
Love it! Makes splitting wood fast and fun! The wheels are a bit flimsy when moving it around, but, overall, it's a great deal for the price.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Price, Easy To Store

Love The Height. Tray Is Shakey
From the back of the truck to the splitter with no bending over. Tray is shakey and needs a way to lock in place but is functional. Wish it had more power for large logs and wood like ash. It slows down further in a hard split and I wound up backing it up some and inserting a small short log to help finish. The start button is low and hard to push and after time my hand cramped. For the money? I love it.
Pros: Price, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Durable
Cons: Heavy

Works Great In My Garage
I already have two heavy duty log splitters but can't use them inside. The Yardmax is set up in my garage where I can use it if its snowing outside. There's no excessive noise or unhealthy fumes. It is exceptionally good for splitting smaller pieces of firewood that I use in small heaters
Pros: Exceeded Expectations, Durable, Reliable, High Quality
Cons: none

Fantastic Splitter!!!!
I have had other electric log splitters in the past, but this is the best one for the money!! It splits the logs with ease-as long as you don't go over the log sizes it recommends. And with the stand and tray, its a winner! If you buy one, ask if you could have it sent by a freight carrier (NOT FED/EX)
Pros: Durable, Features, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: NONE

"I had a great buying experience with Log Splitters--the ONLY issue I had was that the first splitter came to me by FED/EX damaged. They lied about where the shipment was, box was relabeled-told me the label "came" off -unit came in the wrong box-FED/EX re-boxed the unit after they broke it. Dropped it off at my home so I could not inspect it. Log Splitters sent me out a new replacement one right away!! I will do business with them again!!"
