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.

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!

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 tbird5 i used this on pine poplar and oak worked great the i got some hickory that was dry
then we used a 21 ton gas splitter and it bogged down on some of the hickory but we got it busted but the electric is still a great splitter so dont try hickory first pine poplar and even oak busted good but its not for hickory turns out hickory is about the hardest wood in ga. love my wood splitter made for home-lite good home machine..

Solid unit for the price. Excessive amount of non-recyclable padding that will be adding to the landfill.
