Questions & Answers

Is there a specific type of hydraulic oil to be used on the electric log splitter?

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.

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 ?

Customer Reviews

5-Ton Electric Log Splitter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 723.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Homelite 5 ton electric log splitter I don't normally leave reviews but this thing deserves one. I had a tree giving to me that was knocked down during hurricane Harvey. I got rid of my 20 ton splitter a couple of years ago because I do not use much wood anymore. I figured that I would give this thing a try due to price compared to a larger splitter that I only use every couple of years. This thing split logs up to 18 in dia. with little to no problem. The only cons that I have is having to make a makeshift table to get it off of the ground to safe back and logs are a little heavy lifting that high. I would recommend this thing for anyone that only splits a cord or less a year. Small and easy to store. Follow directions and this little horse will work great for you. The only reason that I did not give it 5 stars is that nothing is perfect.

So far I split about 12 cords of Tamerac, fir, pine and lodgepole fire wood. Runs like a top, I was afraid a electric splitter would be useless but its not at at all. I love this little splitter. It does a great job and I will recommend it to anyone. All I had to do is put the wheels on with a pin and it was ready to go. Thank you Homelite and Home Depot! This picture is only 5 of the 12 cords I split. The rest is in my wood shed all ready for another hard Winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works incredibly! I'm amazed at the abuse this thing can handle. I used it to split up some 30" diameter oak and it worked like a champ. If you line it up with the natural cracks it really destroys it. It hung up on a couple large knots, but given it was larger then the advertised size I'm not going to ding it for that. Smaller pieces are still more easily handled by an axe.

If a log had a crack already, it would work. But other logs like juniper, ash tree, birch were no problem to cut.

I am on season 3 and I have split 18 full cords with it. It does 95% of what a 22 ton gas splitter would do. It is a bit slower. I have split oak, Hickory, and white pine. Some logs weighing over 125lbs that barley fit. Make sure you have a quality extension cord and have the unit level for it to work properly. I have used this splitter hard going beyond what is recommended it owes me almost nothing at this point. While it is still going strong I do not expect to get too many more seasons out of it. If going to get a gas unit over this electric make sure you get a 4 way wedge to make it worth your time and money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 27 Ton? That's what I used to have in my previous home but I couldn't see spending $1000 on another one. Do you really need all that tonnage? I didn't know so I thought I would try a small 5 tonner and was I surprised. This thing split 18" round Oak, 18" long and 45% moisture. It took 2 passes but it split it. After that I was convinced. Yes the 2 handed operation is a pain so I replaced the push button with a relay and put a limit switch on the hydraulic lever. Only issue so far after nearly 3 full cords is that I bent one of the support arms by dropping a log on it by accident. Unless you're splitting tree trunks you can really do with a unit like this.

I have only used this log splitter to split about 2 cords of wood so far, and could not be more pleased with it. It saves so much time and energy as compared to splitting wood with wedges and heavy hammers. I only wish i would have gotten it two or three years ago. It splits almost everything that i have put in it so far with ease, a great product!! I did like the fact that there was nothing but 2 wheels to put on it after taking it out of the box and it was ready to go. Just remember to open the air valve at the end of of it about 3 turns just before using it and close it before moving it. and it takes up very little space to store as it can be stored in an upright position. Can't find anything i don't like about it. A great product!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked great but leaked oil I ordered the splitter online amd when it arrives at my house the box was badly damaged. After initial inspection everything seemed to be okay other than I was missing the hardware for one of the wheels a quick call to customer service and the part was on the way. As for the splitter itself it was great. Worked like I expected and split some pretty big oak logs with no issues. The reason I'm only giving it 3 stars is the unit leaked oil right away and nothing I did seemed to stop it. I contacted Homelite about this and their only suggestion was to take it to an authorized repair facility for warranty work. Unfortunately both facilities in my area are about an hour away so it was cheaper for me to return the unit instead of getting it repaired.
