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 4.4 out of 5 by 47 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. October 22, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by I do not recommend any electric log splitter now because of the new wedge less safety split invention . I will ad a before and after photo. Inventor Walter Rodler October 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent product. works as advertised. even splits logs larger than 10 inches. October 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by split it More than I expected. Raised it up on a sturdy platform and split oak and ash. Great job, it went thru everything I fed it. Careful to not stand in front of the splitter as an occasional log will be split so powerfully it will EXPLODE off the splitter. Can't go wrong with this machine, no more rentals no more excuses not to get the job done!. October 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great This log spliter is better than expected. I fully recommend it. September 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wen 6 ton splitter Good. Solid. Does what you need. Split some large wood for me. 6 tons is a lot of force. October 18, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by new log splitter Easy to assemble, but be careful unit is quite heavy. Found extra part, evidently a stop of some kind in the bottom of the shipping box. Can't find part on diagram of splitter. Called and emailed Wen, they have never responded. So I don't know if this part is critical. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Electric 6-ton log splitter Very satisfied so far. True test will be 3-5 years from now. So far, works well and meets my expectations. I expect this to last 15-25 years. We'll see... August 23, 2016
