Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rick Good purchase
I really took my time in determining what log splitter to get. My needs are relatively modest. I have a lot of logs on my property from past tree cutting as i live in a suburban foresty area. I only need firewood for occasional fires in my fire pit in my back yard, but definitely needed a log splitter to do this. . Didnt need to be fancy but had to work. This one does. Sends it straight thru safely with the 2 handed opperation and it splits the logs easily. I also like that there was virtually no assemply as that is not my strong suit. So far, so good! So good price and a good product for cutting logs that are up to 20.5 inches long.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Oregongirl This machine is great!
Brought this to use because my boyfriend had shoulder surgery a I didn't want him to have to split wood this year by hand. Th little machine works l a charm! Did use a 4x4 with it to help push through tougher, more knotty pieces of wood. He actually put it to the test putting 35-40 inch rounds on it used a maul the top of the wood and whacked it and then let the splitter do it's work. I never would have believed it could be done but he did that with at least 10-13 rounds and it worked every time. We cut about a cord and a half of cedar, hawthorn and maple and never had a problem. Fantastic little machine so worth the money!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by randall Does the job and then some
I split a lot of wood and got tired of swinging an axe, yet didn't want to spend over $1000 for a large splitter. Read the reviews, did some research and bought the Homelite. I split mostly seasoned mesquite and some that is a little green, both are pretty hard woods. Except for a couple of odd shape pieces it split everything I put to it. Yes I exceeded the max. recommended diameter wood and it still split it without any issues. This is a heavy duty little unit and great for the weekend wood splitter. It's a bit difficult to roll around but I didn't have any issues with that as other reviewers did. Recommend you get yourself a piece of hard 4 x 4 to shorten the distance between the ram and the splitter head, makes things to faster. When you want to split a log into quarters, just split it once, keep the halves together and rotate over to make the 2nd split and you have your quarters. I didn't have issues with the 2 handed operation like others did, its a safety design. I did put mine on a waist high table which keeps you from bending over so much. With a 10% off Home Depot coupon this unit was $260 and it was delivered within 3 days, free shipping. Also, you can keep the ram from retracting fully using the lever, that way the unit cycles faster for faster splitting.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HomeownerInVirginia Very happy with this product
So far I have been very happy with this log splitter. It has handled the vast majority of the logs I have split without issue. You do have to make sure the logs arent too big as it can struggle with fatter logs especially if they are still not completely dried out. That said overall this is a good purchase for anyone who needs a moderately sized/priced log splitter.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chuck I was sceptical
If you're skeptical about this product like I was, don't be. Splitter is small enough to fit on the tailgate of my Tundra and provide plenty of work space. Since its electrical, I don't have to worry about gas, noise, and could be operated indoors. I waited after splitting season to review this. Never had any issues with any logs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jrl Great product for the money
Was skeptical when I first bought it that it would be strong enough for the job, I split at least 6 cords of wood after I got it home and was surprised at how powerful it was. Easy to use and quiet also since it is electric, Light weight and stands up straight for easy storage and doesn't take up much room. I would recommend placing it on a table for easier use. I used a stack of wood pallets to place it about waist high and that made it much easier on my back.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Preacherman Great Purchase
The splitter is just the right size for what we need. Needs to be put on a table, but works very well. Was missing a wheel when it arrived, but we called and they shipped the wheel out right away at no extra charge to us. I would recommend this splitter for normal to small wood splitting. Good product.
Sorry I am unable to send a picture or video of my splitter. My phone does not have the capability to do that.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tony Excellent log splitter
Received my log splitter but it was damaged. I contacted HD and a new splitter was shipped and the damaged unit was picked up. When I received my replacement I split a face cord right out of the box. Assembly was very simple and the powerful splitter exceeded my expectations. Easy to move around and store. I would recommend this purchase to a friend.
