Product Description

Take all the work out of splitting that wood pile with the new WoodEze 4-Ton Electric Log Splitter. The dependable 15 Amp, 1.75 horsepower electric engine runs on regular household current and features a ground fault breaker that protects against overload. With 4 tons of splitting force, this unit will split logs up to 20'' long and 12'' in diameter. The all steel construction makes this splitter durable and tough allowing for years of dedicated service. Fully assembled when delivered this 4-Ton Wood Splitter makes splitting logs a simple task.

The logs delivered to the house last year were much too thick for starting a fire in the basement woodstove. I'm not in great shape and splitting them to useful size with an axe was killing me.

So I ordered the Woodeze 4-Ton Electric Wood Splitter on Feb 14th, 2012. It arrived on the 17th. Used it today (Feb 18th).

I love it. Just take it out of the box (it's fully assembled), open the hydraulic air bleed valve, plug it in, and start splitting logs. When you're done, close the bleed valve and put it away. We put ours on a wooden work table to save us from squatting over the machine. Most logs just fall apart to either side of the machine before the end of the stroke. The ram retracts immediately when you let go of the button. It's great for making kindling; just run them through again. There's almost no noise. The sound of the logs splitting was louder than the machine.

I paid $306 total. Shipping included. Well worth it.

I bought this splitter for light occasional use and works great. Ready to use out of the box. This is my first log splitter and didn't want to spend $800 or more on something I wouldn't use very often.

I recommend this to those looking for a small, easy to move and store, light duty, inexpensive splitter.

Lightweight and portable. I roll it out of garage, plug in with extension cord, and split the largest logs in my yard with ease (so far, the largest log I've split is 20 inch diameter black cherry).

Update 10/14/2014: Device has become unreliable. The motor will not start about half the time - intermittent.

This arrived 3 days after I ordered it. I opened the box, read the manual, and within 15 minutes I had hooked it up (to a 15 amp extension cord, thanks to the reviews) and was using it. Don't forget to open the little valve on one end, it's simple (I just keep it open, no reason not to). I have a home with several fireplaces along the CA coast where we can have a fire pretty much every night. Our wood comes from a yard where it is only split into quarters, about 18" long - mostly too chunky for my taste. I get a mix of fir/pine and almond hardwood. After whacking myself in the leg several times with flying wood while using a double-bit axe, and realizing that only about 1/3 of the pieces could be split with an axe (and the fact I'm in my 60s now), I decided to get a log splitter. Being electric, this one only makes noise or uses energy when it is splitting; it's fairly quiet - the noise of the wood splitting is louder than the hydraulic ram. After using it for 4 weeks now I have only come across 2 pieces of wood that could not be split - and I was actually trying to find some. They both had huge knots in them. This will split any regular wood from limbs or rounds, in my experience. One word of advice: I was leaning over (it takes two hands to run it so you cannot sever any fingers...) at the side of the splitter, I had a couple pieces of wood that, when split, literally explode off the machine to the sides - they 'pop' as they split. I avoided getting hit, but since then I now work from the back (near the cord) as nothing seems to go that way. Wear plastic protective eyeglasses (cheap from the hardware store) as good insurance - you never know. And Gloves. I reached over to pull a log off and ran a splinter under my fingernail - ARGH - so gloves are a must.

In a nutshell - for the money - this is a keeper. All my friends want to split wood when they come over now!

I've owned this splitter for only one day, but I want to share my early experience.

As a test I selected a 19 ½ x 13 log that had seasoned for a year in a sunless location. Still damp inside, it split easily. Within 90 seconds I had 10 pieces of kindling for my campfire.

This product sure beats the foot-operated 8-ton splitter I struggled with for 2 seasons. I highly recommend the Woodeze 4-Ton Electric Wood Splitter for home use.

FOR YEARS I'VE SPLIT MY FIREWOOD THE OLD FASHION WAY..WITH AN AX. MY FAMILY & I MOVED INTO A NEW HOME WITH 25 ACRES OF TIMBER. SO I DECIDED TO INVEST IN A SPLITTER. I CAUGHT THE 4 TON WOODEZE ON SALE. THIS LITTLE FELLOW WORKS GREAT. I LOAD IT, MY GENERATOR & CHAIN SAW INTO MY GARDEN WAGON BEHIND MY RIDING MOWER & CAN PULL IT AROUND WHERE EVER I NEED IT....THE ONLY SET BACK IS THAT IT WILL NOT OPERATE ON A LONG EXTENION CORD. I DO RECOMMEND THIS SPLITTER.

For the money you can not beat this log splitter. Saying "for the money" is not a negative since it preforms like a champ probally as well as units costing a lot more. This is a perfect for the home owner that just supplies wood for their own use. I've got a lot of trees on my property and every year I thin out the wood around the house since over the tears the trees have just gotten too big. I have split trees , so far, up to 8 to 10 inches with NO problems. It is a bit clumsy to move around, for me, but it is a heavy unit but it is well built and quite easy to operate. Stay warm...........
