Product Overview

The WEN 56206 6-Ton Electric Log Splitter quickly turns that pile of wood into something useful firewood for your fireplace. Safer and more productive than swinging an Ax. Our heavy-gauge welded-steel construction handles all of your log-splitting demands. A powerful 2 HP 15 Amp motor applies up to 12,000 lbs. of force, effortlessly splitting any log under 20.5 in. in length and 10 in. in diameter. A 4 in. by 4 in. push plate connected to the 15-1/2 in. ram pushes logs into the 4.5 in. wedge, splitting the wood quickly and efficiently. For safety purposes, WEN designed this operation to require both hands. Removal of a hand returns the ram to its starting position, decreasing the chance of bodily injury. The electric power allows for lower maintenance costs and for indoor usage without worries of exhaust fumes. No gas to run out. No batteries to change. Just plug it in and go. The splitter includes convenient comfort-grip handles and 6 in. tires to easily transport to your work area when necessary. Use up to a 50 ft. twelve-gauge extension cord. Includes AW32 hydraulic oil to fill the 2.8 qt. reservoir. Use Dextron auto transmission fluid for operations below 40°F.
  • Reliable 2 HP, copper-wound motor uses household current, no problems with cold starts or gas shortages; quieter, less expensive plug it in and go
  • Safety first, operation requires 2 hands to keep hands clear of the ram while fume free electric power allows for usage both indoors and outdoors
  • Built-in log cradle/guide keeps logs on track for even splitting
  • Maximum log capacity: up to 10 in. in diameter and 20.5 in. in length
  • Portable with 2 comfort grip handles and 6 in. tires
  • CSA approved with a 2-year WEN warranty

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product, good value. Delivered on time. Very easy wheel assembly (took only 5 minutes). What is a common flaw with all these electric moldels is that they are designed to be operated at ground level. Very difficult to bend over every time to split a log. These units weigh about 100 lbs so you really can not lift them onto a table. My solution is to use my pickup ATV loading ramp. Then role the unit up to the bed of the truck and do the log spliiting on my tailgait.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little splitter Had it shipped to my cabin in the Redwoods. The UPS driver was glad I was around to help him unload it. This thing is heavy! It was packed well to prevent damage in shipping. All you have to do is put on the wheels, easy. You'll want to elevate it for easier use. I placed it on a 3/4" piece of plywood on two saw horses. Works great. We have a lot of fallen trees around so I was splitting 12" to 14" in diameter pieces with no problem. Only a couple of times it did not look as if it were powerful enough to split the real big pieces, so I just stopped, flipped the piece over and it split perfectly. WEN only recommends 10" max in diameter and it easily handles that. I would definetly recommend this splitter for home owner use but not commercial.

I attached the wheels and the unit was ready to split wood. I have 30 cords of pine to split and unit is working as advertised. My only complaint is the 2 hand operation which makes for an almost unsafe operation for odd shaped pieces.

One guy showed his video doing that. Unfortunately the one I got only split 1 undersized log out of about a dz I attempted. Consequently I did return it. I really, really wanted it to work.

It split some logs I did not think it would and did not split some logs I thought it should have. Overall I am happy with it. I set it up on a stand so I can work standing up and that makes it better for me. Only time will tell how durable it will be.

I'm recommending this splitter because it worked great initially. Will return for a new one hoping that malfunction was a isolated one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but powerful. This splitter handled almost everything I threw at it. One concern, I'm not sure the ram that pushes the log into the wedge is made out of thick enough stock. Time will tell.
