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

Asked by: Ropo
Coming from an electrician, 14 ga up to 25 ft. 12 ga up to 50 ft. 10 ga for 50 to 100 ft. I personally wouldn't use anything under a 12 gauge wire. Voltage drop will only affect you at around 50 plus feet. the heavier the gauge the better. Even though the manual may say 14 ga is okay, be safe and go up one size.

fluid leak on Homelite 5 ton log spliltter

The bottom of my homelite 5 ton logsplitter is covered with oil. The oil is coming from around the silver end. You can see it running down the seam where the end is placed on the unit. Is this something to be concerned about? I tightened the 4 bolts at the other end and fluid still leaks. My opinion is that the fluid should stay inside of the unit. If the fluid is running out the seal is not doing its job. At one point there was a small puddle about an inch or so under the unit the next day after using it. I think I should take it back and get another. What do you think ?

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!

Get the right extension cord to properly operate the splitter. Got a 12AWG cord 25' long, worked great. This Splitter needs 15Amps to run, and I had it on a circuit that was 15A, but had a few light bulbs on it as well. Tried to run the splitter and tripped the circuit. Ran fine with all the lights out. Split quite a few logs, and will do more next time the weather is nice. Would recommend to anyone who has a few logs to split.

I had cut around 3 1/2 cord of wood and had a bunch of pieces that I just didnt want to tackle with my maul. Also I was planning to cut my own wood for the next few years so decided to by a splitter. I was not going to spend $1,000 so looked at this little beast. Took it out of the box and went to work....WOW went through every piece flawlessly!! A little slow and a little to low to the ground. Will be finding a way to get it up higher next year but definitely worth it!!

This splitter did everything the description and reviews said it would do. I was a little hesitant based on some of the reviews concerning its ability but after using it twice, I am very impressed. It never hesitated to split some green sweet gum logs up to 12 inch. You must be careful and set the logs correctly to make certain they properly contact the ram, but you can easily tell if it is correct before it causes any danger if you pay attention.
