The Boss Industrial 20-ton gas log splitter offers you 20-tons of dual-action (two-way) splitting force with a 6-second split time in each direction. This gets you on to other tasks or just relaxing more quickly.
Includes a tow package and is equipped with a 6.5 HP Kohler Courage 4-Cycle Engine. This splitter is made to endure heavy use on the farm or at home and is ready to split most all of your firewood.
I am very happy with the GD20T24 log splitter. I have split about 4 cords of Ash, and it has plenty of power to get through the larger pieces. I am glad I went with the 20 ton splitter over the 16 ton version due to the additional power and the ability to splitter 24” long logs. The dual action cuts down split time significantly. Ryan at Wood Splitter Outlet was very helpful and timely with email responses regarding the tracking of the shipment. I highly recommend this product and Wood Splitter Outlet.
Great little unit and Ryan at Wood Splitter Outlet was super helpful in determining what I needed. It was refreshing to have someone from an online store actually answer the phone. Better yet, someone that could actually answer the questions. I tried talking with another online retailer, but they had no idea about the equipment and couldn't answer any of my questions. Ryan helped me pick this unit and it's been exactly what I needed.
The competitor tried to sell me a much larger unit than I needed. Ryan asked me questions to figure out what I really needed, not what I thought I needed. I went from looking at a $1600 35 ton unit to settling on this 20 ton unit that was $400 less and could split in both directions which saves me a lot of time working. We are very happy with the splitter and look forward to using it for years.
I bought this splitter nearly 2 years ago. I received a request from WSO to write a review and I'm happy to do so. This splitter has worked great and I've split 10-12 cords of wood over the past years. The dual action splitting saves a ton of time and rarely do I have issues with the wedge hanging up or stopping. It just powers through what I'm splitting. WSO took good care of me, had a great price and the shipping was really fast. Would definitely buy from them again and I suggest this splitter and the Boss brand to my friends all the time.
The splitter was shipped very quickly and arrived fast. Once I got to assembly, ran into a handful of issues.
1. The tank flange was welded crooked, so I had to bend it into vertical position in order to get the bolt started.
2. There was a hose that leaked - was able to remove, reseat and retighten (hard) and the leak stopped
3. The pin hole for the retractable front leg was slightly misaligned, so I needed to use a hammer to get the pin in and out. The solution was to round file the hole so that it is slightly larger.
4. The Kohler engine's choke lever kept falling off. The solution to was to super glue it back on.
Ryan got me in touch with Boss and they helped work through these issues. Having gotten through them now, the splitter is great. The bidirectional wedge saves a lot of time. I also bought the 4 way splitter which is also extremely useful. I would give the splitter 5 stars but I think they need to tighten up their quality assurance a bit. Fortunately all of these issues were fixable by me.
