As a professional gardener and owner of the best garden yard in the neighborhood (according to my wife), I don’t like to deal with the logs and big branches after cutting trees. That’s why I started to look for a special tool – log splitter – made to cut even the thickest branches left after a long gardening day.

Usually, I start with explaining the advantages of my gardening tools – but this time, I want to say about the serious drawback of any expert (not DYI) splitter for logs. On average, their price varies – $200 – $300. So, the choice must be very considered to avoid spending investments in vain. You ought to understand the pros and cons of every model before making a purchase. To save your time and money, my friends and I tested over 15 different log splitters and chose the top 10 models that are worth spending money.

  • Powerhouse XM-380 – my overall decision based on such criteria as capacity, power of the motor and 15-inch distance;
  • WEN 56207 – this instrument has the most powerful engine (15 A);
  • Boss Industrial ES7T20 – its “splitting force” is amazing 7 tons, I couldn’t ignore such a distinctive feature;
  • Southland SELS60 – can boast 18-second cycle time and a stroke limiter;

Surely, I have other 5 models if you didn’t find any good instrument for cutting logs.
