I’d just like to say that these things work. I have a smaller model. I was in home depot looking at gas models and a sales rep encouraged me to take an electric for a ride. I was skeptical, but he assured me I could return it if I was not delighted. I actually was delighted. This thing sits in the back of my garage and required zero maintenance. When I take down a tree, I drag it out, split the logs, and put it back.
I am a lumberjack and I’m okay. Now you can be one, too.
Yes, electric log splitters work. I don’t have this particular one, but a different make and model that is very similar. It splits wood that it looks like it shouldn’t be able to, but does. It does struggle and fail with large knots, but it’s usually possible to split around the knot and end up with usable pieces of firewood. No, this isn’t going to compete with a gas splitter, but for the average home owner this will be sufficient.
I have this…me like…VERY good.
If you’ve made it this far, you really want a log splitter. Don’t hesitate - this is a great deal. Mine works well, albeit a bit slow. But I can sit down next to it with a cold Coke and a ballgame on the radio and have a cord split by the third inning.
are these “refurbished” or new?
Yes to all the above, also the potential buyer should consider these to be “light duty”. I burn quite a bit of firewood from December through February and I wore one of these out in two years. But they do work and they’re much more convenient than the gas models.
I’d like to add a competing view here. While it does ‘work’, I cannot stress how slow it is. In the time it takes to split one piece, I can swing an axe to split 2-3 pieces.
Also it doesn’t do knots nor ‘split’ pieces almost at all, so if you’re looking to get this one to handle the pieces that are difficult to split by hand, you’ll be disappointed.
I have an electric log splitter (not this one but same size) and find its best use is to cut kindling to start our fire.
Just ordered, been looking at this and the Harbor Freight 5 ton unit. Must say I don’t ever recall paying tax on Woot purchase until this one.
Ahhh, Woot bought by Amazon, Amazon about to open a warehouse in Maryland and started charging sales tax, as does Amazon so does Woot. Got it!
Those must be some crazy strong wheels!
Just think how good the deal is with Woot’s $5 shipping.
For anybody who is confused: the “6 tons” in the title refers to the amount of pressure the splitter can exert on its cutting head to drive it into a log.
I have one. It’s slow but dependable. If you heat with wood and split a lot of wood, you probably won’t like it. If you’re like me and just want a cozy fire with the family once in a while, have at it.
Bought this last August. LOVE IT! Agree that it works slow and sometimes seems to need a break but does a great job and splits larger logs than it lists. Right now we have it in our garage and split logs as we need them for the fireplace since we didn’t split enough last fall.
Although I know you were just being funny, for anyone confused, the things sets on feet when it’s actually splitting wood. The wheels are just there for transport.
