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.

bigger than 10" diameter?

can you do logs larger than 10" in diameter?
Asked by: homesplitter
We've split up to about 24" rounds of dry cedar, maple, alder and fir with no problem. We accumulate, cut to burning length and store to dry for a few months. Then we split rounds to firewood size and store for drying for the next year. This splitter works great this way and has been for five years. I would definitely recommend two adults doing the splitting together no matter what the size of the wood.

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 967.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Homelite Splitter is worth the money! This machine is a work horse...6 truck loads of logs 16... The Homelite Splitter is worth the money! This machine is a work horse...6 truck loads of logs 16 to19 long, 7 - 9 inch diameter, split them NO PROBLEM! I'm a tall guy and wanted a way to move the splitter without carring it. The machine is a little heavy to carry to my shed for summer storage or to the garage, so I bought a Gorilla (green) Cart and put a piece 3/4 plywood on top. The plywood is 2 x 4 and pre-cut at Home Depot in the pine boards and plank section of the store. Works perfect and it adds the height without hurting my back trying to cut logs down by my feet. Also, for stationary cutting I use saw horses for waist high cutting. Make sure you grab Power Care AW ISO 32 1 gal. Hydraulic Oil, you'll need to add this before you start cutting. REMEMBER, when your done cutting or storing the splitter for the season, STAND THE MACHINE UPRIGHT! If you don't do this oil will leak out and make a mess. I see many years using this wonderful machine...I put my axe away for good!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the money I live in a townhouse and there are other families in close proximity to me, so a gas splitter was not a option. I looked at the other small electric splitters out there, but noticed the noise the other ones made was quite a bit louder than this one. The wood splitting makes more noise than the pump & motor do. So far I have split ash, oak, almond, pine & cedar, the only problems being with crotchwood. The splitter won't touch those. Everything else straight grained has been no problem. The one thing I changed was the 6 ft, 14 ga cord. It wasn't quite long enough to reach the outlet, so rather than use a long extension cord, I replaced it with a 9 ft, 14 ga cord. Home Depot sells it as a replacement power cord. The need for two hands to operate the splitter has it's good points and bad. It does keep your hands out of harms way, but does not allow for steadying a odd shaped piece of wood. I highly recommend the Homelite 5 ton electric splitter for light home use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exactly as advertised I purchased this to split logs from two trees that were cut down on a neighbor's property. It performed exactly as advertised. It splits the medium logs and not the real big ones. I split 2-3 cords in about 10 hours. The large pieces were split in half by hand and then by the splitter. I am very satisfied with this purchase. There were two negatives. It stopped working after stalling on a large log. I took the cover off and found a loose wire. It was reconnected easily and the splitter worked fine since then. When trying to split a large piece, the ram was bent slightly. I could see it bend under the pressure. As a result, the ram no longer goes all the way back on the return cycle. I read where this happened to another person on the Home depot website. That's O.K. with me as I now cannot put huge pieces of wood on the splitter, which it wouldn't split anyway, so this will force me to put just the size wood on that the machine will split. Excellent purchase. It has met my needs perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great My son and I bought this together after I was given what turned out to be 4 cords of unseasoned Black Locust and about a cord of seasoned Elm all not split and most at the maximum size for the splitter. It split all of the wood even the pieces with notches. Since then we have picked up more wood and have now split 8 or 9 cords. We both are very happy with the splitter. We read some reviews that said it would be nice to be able to adjust the travel to go further through a piece of wood. We found this could be achieved by putting a 3 inch block of wood behind any log that needs to be pushed further through the wedge. I’ve used bigger, gas powered splitters in the past but this 5 ton electric gets the job done. And it’s nice to be able to use it in a closed garage in the winter, quietly and no fumes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Many improvements over my last "no name" splitter Purchased this model to replace a previous model from a competitor big box store that lasted three years and lost its hydraulic power. This Homelite actually came with both instructions and a parts list! Some safety modifications are noticeable (addition of a cotter pin), but, so far, it works great. Just need to buy a 5/16 (I think) Allen wrench, because it has a huge uncommon slot to check the hydraulic oil level (wish Homelite would have included the wrench). Convenient storage standing up on its wheels and relatively easy to maneuver. So far, this unit performed well, even on an oversized recently felled tree. Only negative is the necessity to push a button and a level with both hands while leaning down to the unit resulting in back pain the next day. Otherwise, great unit to split firewood for the wood stove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits all my parameters I enjoy woodturning as one of my hobbies. I also enjoy bonfires. I select some wood for turning, and the rest is for burning. Less than a mile away, I can rent a 30 ton tip up for $65 for 4 hours. Transportation and set up still loses an hour, and it all has to be done in one shot, and done fast. This little gem has already split more than a full cord of wood flawlessly. It was still wet, and I had many 14-16" diameter pieces. It stores on end with very little floor space. For the average homeowner, it is ideal. If you are splitting giant stringy fresh wet hardwood logs as a business, buy a 30 ton tip up. If not, just remember to open the vent, plug it in, and split as much as you want, whenever you want. Put it in your tractor's lawn trailer for a perfect height, and to catch the wood as you are splitting it. A+++++ Be prepared to respond to loan requests, as everyone that sees it has to try it, and then they will want to borrow it. Who needs to sell wood? Just charge your friends rental "fees" of choice! (Don't tell them how affordable it is, or they'll just go buy thier own, instead of paying for yours!)

Very sturdily built (heavy: 100lbs) and high quality piece of equipment. No matter what diameter log I put in, it split it effortlessly. Wheels and stand-up storage make it easy to put away. You are limited to 20" length logs, which is about all the average home fireplace can handle anyway. Assembly is just putting the wheels on. Requires two separate switches to operate which keeps your hands out of the "business" area.....not that things move that quickly as to be hazardous. Excellent product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING SPLITTER!!!! Bought this from the home depot a few years ago and man it split just about everything I could put in it. Even some logs I couldn't lift myself. Splits straight oak good and everything in between maple ash (almost anything). Won't split curly or knotty wood well. May have to ram it a couple times for those logs. It's a little heavy but I don't need to move it much. I watched it on YouTube and read a few reviews on it. A great splitter. You can't run it on a long extension cord. I've been very very happy. Can't beat no gas or oil changes. Just plug it in a go. Sometimes mine will shoot the logs out the end like a gun. It doesn't bother me. Just don't stand there any you'll be fine with it. I also had a firewood business. It's paid for itself over and over. Would buy another in a heart beat. Very very well pleased.
