        Q:Does the motor need to be powered down after each log is split, or can it be left running throughout a splitting session?
        by|Feb 23, 2024
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi customer, after splitting a piece of wood, you don't need to turn off the motor. You can keep the motor running during the work process, and turn off the power after all the wood is splitted.

          This Yardmax 9 ton log splitter is a keeper! It is much better than the 5 ton varieties out there in the market. If you're going to purchase an electric wood splitter save yourself some money and skip 5 ton, because at some point in time the 5 ton will not deliver the perfomance you need.And you will upgrade to a more powerfull unit. This Yardmax log spliter is powerful and durable.And the most affordable compare to other brands.

          Came 95% assembled, well packed and secured. Works great, very happy with it. It is heavy - you won't be lifting this into a pickup by yourself! It's low to the ground, which makes lifting heavy logs on to it easier, but on the other hand, can be trying on the back if you are bending over it all day. I recommend buying some shin guards to protect your legs.

          Powerful
          I ordered the Yardmax 9 ton electric log splitter. I picked the splitter up myself at Home Depot. Before purchasing this splitter I contacted Yarxmax to verify this was a one hand operated log splitter. I was assured it was a one hand operated unit. After unloading checked the unit out and it was a two hand operated system. I contacted Yardmax and they sent me a new push button switch. Installed the new switch and all works great. Now it's a one hand operated unit. Just wanted to let all know you might get the two hand model, but a easy fix, Also the hydro oil dip stick bolt is a 8mm allen wrench. The log splitter worked great, split about 1/2 cord of pecan and oak logs up to 14" diameter and had no problems at all. Very pleased with this splitter.

            delivered damaged twice
            I beleive this unit is a great unit however the packaging and or shipping company needs revision. I have received my second unit today through estees and both were damaged in thsame area. The collar that mounts the motor to the logsplitter was cracked as if is was dropped and hydraulic oil all over fhe unit and on the base of the box.

              Excellent power
              My first log splitter several years ago was a 5-ton and it barely had the power to split some wood, so it was a learning experience. This splitter was almost twice the power, and really does the job! After following setup instructions, I started off with a log at least 14" from a tree I recently had cut down. Following the operating instructions of the 2-handed safety rules, it ran smoothly and easily split this log into several pieces - check the photos.

                What I think of the 9 ton Yardmax
                I love the splitting force and that it has a two stage operation, but I don't like that it puts my right leg and face in danger of being hit from any logs that sometimes pop out from the splitter due to the positioning of the power switch. I know that logs need to be properly cut, but sometimes, they are not properly cut

                Absolutely awesome!!!!!
                Can’t say enough about how incredible this guy was today!!! Exceeded expectations. If you’re not going gas powered this is as good as it gets. That being said, why go gas powered if you can go 9 ton electric ??!! Quick and easy set of the return for the shorter logs. Most all of the logs only needed 6-8” or travel before the log was split and was letting go of the lever to return to start position before re adjusting the log and then hitting the lever again to split the next. Just awesome!

                  Very impressed
                  This is the first splitter I've ever owned or even used so take my review with a grain of salt. But all I can say is, it works and works great. I've already split all the wood shown in the pictures plus more. About 3 cords of wood in all. Some logs much larger in diameter than recommended. So the splitter has already paid for itself in the price of wood My biggest complaint is the location of the start button. It's all the way on the bottom which puts your face right behind the splitter.

                    It’s a “Hoss”
                    This thing is a “Hoss”. Has the power to split logs bigger than recommended. I’ve already split a rick of wood that were 16-18” diameter. My only complaint is the wheels are a poor design for movement (they are plastic) and it is very heavy.

                      Stop reading reviews and just buy it...
                      Even though this is an electric splitter you won't be disappointed! I was a little hesitant at first but this is an absolute beast. It's compact size makes it easy to store and you don't have to fiddle with a temperamental gas motor. Since purchasing it, I have split cherry, ash, red oak, and even a few pieces of elm - over two cords now in total. If it fits it splits! Like others have said, the tires could be better...but not a big deal. This is the best $500 I have spent in a while!
