The Boss Industrial 7-ton electric log splitter is a powerful little splitter that still runs on a 15 amp 120-volt circuit. So nothing special needed.
It has a quick 14 second cycle time to give you time to prep logs and move split logs out of the way. One-hand operation works well when you are splitting logs without the help of others to position logs for you.
A solid sturdy structure incorporating a handle and wheels make transporting this unit a breeze. This splitter also can have a 4-way wedge added as well, allowing you to split more logs in a shorter amount of time. It’s unlikely that you will have reason to use it, but Boss Industrial backs up their splitters with a two-year warranty as well.
This is my first electric log splitter and well worth the price. It was very easy to use, not too heavy to haul around, and performed as well after three hours of use on a downed hemlock as it did after three minutes. I watched a few videos before using it for the first time and was glad I did; there were a few adjustments I may have missed otherwise, even after reading the instruction manual. Can't recommend this product highly enough!
I just split 2+ cords of wood in three days with the Boss 7 ton electric splitter. it's not just a little splitter for occasional back yard fire pits. I was stunned how well this went through oak rounds. Occasionally it would not split a full round in half but if you hit it off center it would usually get through.
Great little splitter for a home owner who needs to occasionally split wood for a fireplace or fire pit. I would not recommend this splitter for someone who heats their house with a wood stove. I don't believe this splitter would have the power or capacity for that amount of work. I split wood for a backyard fire pit used 3-4 times a month and it works great. I split small to medium diameter oak logs, maximum 11 - 12 inches, and this splitter only bogged down twice on pieces with large knots. Had to work several angles to get those two pieces split. All other pieces split quickly.
Thanks for the review Mike. I'm glad you like it and it meets your needs. Thanks again for your purchase!
