Pow' R' Kraft 65575 7-Ton 15-Amp 2-Speed Electric Log Splitter
If you’re looking for one of the more innovative electric log splitters out there, the Pow'R'kraft 4-Ton / 7-Ton 2-Speed Horizontal Electric Log Splitter may be just right for you. It runs on 120 volts and a dedicated 15 amp circuit, with a 3 horsepower motor that will split a 12-inch diameter log.
What makes this model unique is it generally uses less power and only 4 tons of force. However, if you run into a difficult piece of wood, the unit automatically cycles up to 7 tons of wood-splitting force giving it adaptability unmatched by any of the others on this list. This model also has a cycle time of about 7 seconds on small, thin pieces of wood and up to 15 seconds on larger pieces.
Weighing in at 175 pounds, this log splitter can be hand pulled to any location where it’s needed. It is built low to the ground so there isn't any high lifting, and the large rail adds stability when a log is placed on top. Although covered by a two year warranty, it’s a bit expensive for a 7 ton splitter, but the 2 speed splitting innovation might be worth it for those who are power conscious.
