Customer Questions & Answers

Is there a specific type of hydraulic oil to be used on the electric log splitter?

Brake fluid works and is hydraulic fluid

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 ?

5-Ton Electric Log Splitter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 662.

It is sturdy and compact, and the wheels make it easy to move around. I have had zero problems with it and I have used it a lot. The only drawback is having to use two hands to operate it, but you get used to that pretty quickly. Positives: quiet, no gasoline smell, consistent performance. Negatives: low to the ground ( but I see that as a good work out!), slower than larger splitters, but it gets the job done and does it well. Highly recommended.

Picked this up on Sunday night after returning a "comparable" inferior unit to Lowes. Came home and I was ripping through logs in no time. Awesome product! Here are the main points I came across in the other reviews, so I'll offer my experience: 1. Assembly time- tool free and takes under 1 minute- all you have to do is attach the wheels using cotter pins. 2. Hydraulic Fluid- The manual does not mention if the unit is pre-filled or not, so I pulled the dipstick and verified that it was already full. 3. 15A Power- I had no problems while plugged into a 15A house circuit with other items such as lights on at the same time. 4. Height- I am 6'1 and was not an issue for me. On day 2, I was going through a decent sized stack and pulled up a regular chair. No problems reaching the lever, button, and placing the logs. 5. Capacity- Tore through decent sized oak, cherry, and hickory logs. Some seasoned, some fresh. Very pleased with this unit.

Only change I made was to make a stand to set it on, so I am not down on my knees the whole time. That gets hard on the back Some sort of a remote switch to run it would work great so you don't have to get down every time, would help.

Larger logs with knots or variations in the grain are difficult to split if you can split them at all. Good straight wood is no problem though. Overall a decent small splitter

Don’t really know much about the Homelite brand, always thought it was a cheaper and lower quality version of lawn and garden equipment. I read a lot of reviews on this log splitter and it was full of love for this item. So I gave it a try and I agree with them. Love it!

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works good I was leary about buying a electric splitter. It split through the logs with ease and has a faster cycle time than any gas one I've used. It does struggle with knots though.
