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 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.

Split my first log in 3 minutes. Its a tad slow - but you have two controls, one to move the sled forward (power) and the other to hold the sled where it is. If you don't let it return to the farthest back position you can do multiple logs pretty quickly (if they are short) Has enough power for my needs - but I could see if you had some big logs it might be a tad small. Overall - this works great!

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 is ok on dry logs and smaller logs. Wet logs that are on the larger side were a little more difficult. In fairness I was splitting some 10" plus logs cuz of reviews I had read stating it is possible.

I didn't like having to use 2 hands to operate 1 the motor button and 2 the ram lever. this was to awkward to use and did not go through a small piece of knotted wood. I was disappointed in this splitter.
