Powerhouse XM-380 7-Ton Electric Hydraulic Log Splitter
If you want the most bang for the buck in an electric log splitter, then check out the Powerhouse 7-Ton Electric Log Splitter. It’s the least expensive splitter here yet still delivers a solid 7 tons of splitting force. It has a cycle time of 15 seconds for quick splitting, features a two-handed safety operation, and the 3 horsepower motor runs on 120 volts that will split an 11-inch log.
This model weighs about 100 pounds so it’s very portable and you can just grab the handle and take it anywhere. Most suburbanites don't need much more of a splitter than this for their fireplaces or wood stoves and it also comes with a one year warranty. If you don't want any bells or whistles, and you just want to split logs for basic home burning, the Powerhouse should be first consideration on your list.
