Electric Log Splitter
From Fisch Precision Tools, Inc., Claysville, Penn., the 4-ton splitter is powered by a quiet 2 hp electric motor. That means no noisy gas engine and no messy hydraulics. It can handle logs up to 20 in. long and 12 in. in diameter. The design requires that one hand operate the motor switch and the other the operation handle, so both are free from danger. The ram automatically returns to the ready position after each use.
The splitter weighs only about 100 lbs., and sits on two wheels, which are set wide apart to give it stability. One person can wheel it around easily. Not recommended for greener, tough-to-split wood.
Sells for $449.99 plus freight and is warranted for a full year. It's been UL and CSA tested and approved.
