There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I was also concerned about power draw and thickness of power cord and tripping breakers. Well I was again very surprised. I strung two average extension cords together for testing purposed to a regular 15 amp circuit. Now this setup does not and should not meet the manufacturers minimum specs. But guess what? I proceeded to split logs with ease with no power issues at all. I was afraid I was going to have to run a dedicated circuit for this thing. No worries any more on that front.
The draw backs mentioned in some of the other more thorough reviews are right on the money. The throw on this is bit short. Like someone mentioned in another post, it is nothing that a piece of 4x4 as a spacer wont remedy, but it is slightly annoying. The wedge itself could be a little wider as well. So I do find myself having to finish pulling the split apart by hand if there is any material left holding the log together. Not a big deal.
Yes, the wheels are too close together, so be careful pulling it behind you. If the surface is not smooth it will easily tip over. Again, not a big deal.
As far as a stand in concerned, yes you will want one. I can point you to a really cheap one. It's called two upright logs. I placed mine on top of the flats of two 20" logs and it worked flawlessly.
This also comes with a shield to install that forces two-handed operation as a safety feature. I was happy to leave this off and enjoy one-handed operation. That is up to you.
I do hope very much that this product holds up over time. If it does, I feel like I made a great purchase. And that is the feeling we all strive for isn't it? Nothing worse than regret of a big purchase. And that's why I took the time to place this review. Because I almost did not buy this based on a couple of the negative reviews that I see do not paint an accurate picture of this unit.
I hope this helps
Once assembled, the splitter seems to work, but predictably only on softer wood. The requirement to use two hands on two levers seems to be a reasonable safety detail. I found that if I let the log pusher travel to the end of its track, the motor does not turn off but the pusher won't move forward for the next log unless the on/off switch is turned off, then on again. If I stop the log pusher before the end of its track, it returns to the start position and then moves forward again on command. Not a huge problem...so far, at least.
I am hopeful that this thing will continue to perform as it has on this first day of use. From what I have read from other commenters, it appears there is little help available if it quits. It has been fun to use so far.
