What experts liked
This log splitter can cut wood so amazingly fast and in the most efficient manner because of its 6 ton splitting force.
- 10 Techy
It comes with a dual handed operation system for increased safety and prevention of injuries.
- Keen Standing
Cycle time is 22 seconds so you can cut a lot of firewood in a few hours.
- A Guide Pro
One of the benefits of this splitter is its excellent portability. It comes with two wheels which make it easy to move around. What’s more, it’s also relatively easy to store, especially when stowed in an upright position.
- Chainsaw Geek
The splitter is fairly easy to carry; it only weighs slightly over 100 pounds and has a very sturdy build quality.
- Best 10 Best
What experts didn't like
Complaints that it is just for small cutting jobs.
- 10 Techy
At 101 pounds, it is considerably heavier than most models.
- Keen Standing
Complaints that it needs some assembly.
- A Guide Pro
There are problems with this splitter though, the main one being a lack of power. Despite its long running time, there are questions about the splitter’s ability to cut through bulkier pieces of wood.
- Chainsaw Geek
Can’t split harder woods like live oak.
