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

6-Ton 15 Amp Electric Log Splitter is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 64.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Splitter I was very pleased when I got this splitter. Price compared to others was a no brainer. Bought online and was delivered to my house. Was in the garage splitting wood 20 minutes later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For the money... If your application is medium sized logs near an electrical source, this splitter can't be beat.

Was working fine for 25 logs then the Motor seized. All we heard was humming when we put another log in and tried to start. Never blew breaker (not a good thing) Thought it may have overheated so we waited 30 minutes and tried again. NO GOOD. Unit was returned. Tried to re- order new to give it another shot but was unavailable. Very disappointed, looked like it could have been a nice unit. DJW, Farmingville, NY

This was the first time I have ever used a splitter. Worked great and extremely happy I made the purchase. For the price alone it was worth saving my back. Split everything with ease and simple to use. The negative reviews I find hard to believe they actually made the purchase and probably attempting to promote a competitor...
