Customer Questions & Answers

What would cause my splitter to shut off after a few minutes of use?

When I use my splitter its starts off working fine. Then, about the 3rd log I will press down on the start button and the hydraulic control lever and the motor will hum and then shut off. I have checked the oil level and it is good. I also made sure the bleed screw was loosened.

Using an extentiion cord with this unit, what length is ok?

Asked by: Ropo
It didn't specify on the outside of the box so I looked at the specs on the different cords. In the instruction booklet for the splitter it specified a minimum !4 gauge cord up to 25 feet and over 25 feet use a 16 gauge cord. I got a 25 ft. 14 gauge and ran it an hour and a half with no heating or problems.

How well does this unit split green wood? Branches were cut slightly over a month ago. Should I wait to get the splitter until logs drier??

I have mostly oak & pine.
Asked by: Candy
you should be able to split fresh cut wood with no problem. Just watch out for the sap!

How do you unlock cylinder.

Asked by: slickjde
There is a pin that has to be removed from the rear lever in order for that lever to go downwards thus allowing the cylinder to move forward under pressure. The green button has to be depressed continually to run the compressor which has to be running for the piston to move. I hate the button, which requires too much pressure from your finger to stay engaged. They need to redesign the machine to just have two levers. After splitting a face cord my finger was aching while the left hand was just fine with the lever. This a slow(ish) moving machine and doesn't even need two handed operation to be safe. An on-off rocker switch would be a welcome option as well for the compressor.

I am on season 3 and I have split 18 full cords with it. It does 95% of what a 22 ton gas splitter would do. It is a bit slower. I have split oak, Hickory, and white pine. Some logs weighing over 125lbs that barley fit. Make sure you have a quality extension cord and have the unit level for it to work properly. I have used this splitter hard going beyond what is recommended it owes me almost nothing at this point. While it is still going strong I do not expect to get too many more seasons out of it. If going to get a gas unit over this electric make sure you get a 4 way wedge to make it worth your time and money.

I have bought many Homelite products and hands down they are one of the best residential products available, I recently installed a Englander stove and have been collecting freshly cut fire woood for next winter, the only thing that has to be installed on this are the wheels and its ready to go, the wood I split was fairly large and took up most of the ram space, there was also no wood rott in most of the wood so keep that in mind, the power on this machine is insane for 5 ton, the motor never reset or strained to split what I had, NOTE: make sure before use you unscrew the bleed screw at the front several turns, in the paper instructions it wont tell you but on the warning label at the rear of the machine it does, this is very important as you will blow the ram seals. it takes 2 hands to operate for safety reasons and I am fine with that.

I BOUGHT IT JUST BEFORE I SPLIT A CORD OF WOOD. (SO I COULD TAKE IT BACK IF IT WASNT ANY GOOD) I HEAT MY HOUSE WITH WOOD AND USE THREE CORD A YEAR.. THIS THING IS GREAT... 18 REDWOOD LOGS IT DOES WITHOUT HESITATION..... IS NOT STOUT ENOUGH FOR HICKORY OR KNOT'S BUT IT WILL SPLIT ALL OAK... COULD NOT BE HAPPIER.

I fill my pickup bed with cut logs, mount the splitter on the tailgate and split wood into a wheelbarrow. EASY AS EATING PIE! Can stack wood anywhere. Splitter will run 8 hours on a 2000 watt Honda generator if you take it out in the field. Have split 24" diameter douglas fir, no problems. Durable, powerful, easy to use, great price. Buy this one first. You then won't need a gas powered one 'cause you'll love this one.

This is EXACTLY the size product I needed. 5 tons of splitting force is PLENTY for the minimal amount/size of wood I split at a time. It's fairly maneuverable. You can use it anywhere, assuming you have a generator. I had NO difficulties splitting either hard or soft woods. Larges piece I split was about 18" long and 12" in diameter. No problems. The only "downside" is that it's low to the ground and requires two hand operation, so it takes a toll on your back and knees, but not NEARLY as much as axe splitting!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what I wanted it to do I buy my Oak and Almond firewood already split, but I wanted more small stuff to get the fire going. This splitter does that easily. I have also split dry Almond logs as big as 16 inches with ease. One improvement would be to be able to limit how far the splitting wedge retracts bet ween logs. I also like that it stores vertically and takes virtually so space in my garage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Log Splitter Having experience in firewood cutting/splitting I highly recommend this splitter. It goes through some of the toughest cottonwood and pine knotted wood we have. I have split several cords since receiving the splitter several weeks ago. The two handed operation, to keep appendages away from working parts, is a bit of nuisance, but the quality of the machine makes up for any inconvenience and my wife loves that it makes me be safer. It is quick, plenty of power and light. Always enjoyed splitting with a maul, however my shoulders and back really appreciate this splitter at my age.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Fun to operate I purchased the Homelite 5 ton log splitter yesterday. Decided to try it out today. It was easy to use and delivered beyond expectations. I even split logs greater than 10 inches. All I had to do is roll the log over, align where the split was and operate the machine. Another enjoyable factor is how quite it was. My cut logs are all under cover. When I need to split more wood I'll just haul my log splitter out and split some more logs. It might be cold outside this winter, but it will be warm inside. Just another super product from Homelite!
