Your electric log splitter is a durable tool that you can entrust with your most grueling jobs. Log splitters make quick work of wood rounds, even those measuring more than a foot in diameter, thanks to a high-powered hydraulic ram that cuts smoothly and accurately. If you're building designer furniture for a client (or simply for yourself), cracks and imperfections may seem like a selling point. Until, that is, they form full fissures and split in two.

Electric log splitters use hydraulic power that frees you up from the headache of running gas-powered engines. They're compact, lightweight, and portable, making them perfect for throwing on your flatbed and hauling out to a construction site. Most hydraulic log splitters also feature wide track wheels for added convenience, two-hand- operation for better safety, and a heavy-duty design that withstands abuse from the elements as well as everyday use.

More Advantages of an Electric Log Splitter

In the old days, chopping wood was a strictly manual task. Even if you had the strength to repeatedly lift and wield your maul, there was no guarantee against slippage, breaking, and rusting. An electric splitter, on the other hand, boasts an ergonomic design that's easy on joints and muscles, saving you the energy you need to handle your other construction needs.

There's a wide variety of electric splitters out there, and as you might suppose, some are better than others. Be sure to look for a model that's built for (relatively) quiet operation, is UL and CSA approved, and offers a money-back guarantee in case it doesn't fit your chopping and cutting needs. There's no reason you shouldn't be able to find all of these features in a single package that costs less than 500 bucks.
