Brave E-Z Split 8 Ton 5.5 hp Log Splitter
The truth is that most people don't need a log splitter that does anything more than this model. The lightweight, Brave EZ Split 8 Ton Horizontal Gas Log Splitter is the least expensive log splitter on this list with practicality which is hard to beat. 8 tons of ram pressure will split 80-90 percent of all wood intended for fireplaces or wood stove, so getting a bigger splitter is just wasting money and gas. The 3.5 horsepower Briggs engine is a quality unit and although not fast by any mean, the 18 second cycle time is still quick enough to get your splitting chores done efficiently. It will take on an 18-inch diameter log up to 190 pounds and is covered by a one year warranty.
