TG725B tiles

Editor’s note: 5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

log splitter texas tg725bExtremely powerful! The Texas TG725B has been designed to meet all the expectations of professionals, even the most specific. Thanks to its 4000 W 212 cm3 4-stroke thermal engine, it reaches up to 20 tons of pressure. This allows you to split logs up to 61 cm long, 30 cm in diameter and 45 kg. In addition to a two-handed safety system to operate the piston, it is distinguished above all by the fact that it can be mounted on a tow hook. Practical therefore, it is possible to take it directly to the construction site, especially since its 2 tires allow it to travel up to 30 km/h.

My opinion : This Texas TG725B is clearly one of the most accomplished log splitters! Whether it’s price or capabilities, it’s obviously not for everyone, but it literally outperforms every model I’ve had the chance to test. If you need a machine that can cut logs quickly and very efficiently, this is the one I would recommend without hesitation. Even being able to move it like a trailer is a real plus. She really delivers in all areas!

wood splitter ribimex prehls71t/venThis Ribimex log splitter has a vertical format which makes it very compact compared to other professional machines. Electric, its powerful 3000 W motor allows it to exert a force of 7 tons, sufficient to cut wood with a diameter ranging from 7 to 40 cm and a maximum length of 55 cm. Equipped with wheels and a rear handle, it is very easy to tilt and transport. It can therefore be moved at will, as needed. Safety is guaranteed by the presence of two arms with hand protection, in compliance with current CE standards.

My opinion : For professional needs but in a more reasonable price range, the Ribimex PREKLS71T/VEN works quite well. With a pressure of 7 tons, it is a splitter that has absolutely no difficulty in cutting any type of wood. Mounted vertically in this way, I even found it quite practical to use, especially since it does not lose mobility thanks to the presence of wheels. Being electric, using it outdoors necessarily requires a little more organization, but it’s still a very good choice.

The Forest Master FM8 is a versatile firewood splitter, ideal for making chopping work easier, especially for private individuals.

Ebert 7T

Editor’s note: 4.5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

eberth 7t log splitterVery practical thanks to its original design! The Eberth 7T is above all a powerful log splitter since it is equipped with a 2200 W electric motor whose pressure reaches 7 tons, enough to cut in half wood 52 cm long with a maximum diameter of 25 cm. But it stands out above all for the fact that it rests on feet that put it at working height, which is perfect for reducing the effort even more. It also has a protective case and only works with two hands for complete safety. The two wheels and the handle make it easy to move and store.

My opinion : I have selected this Eberth 7T for you because it has, in my opinion, a good quality/price ratio. The alliance between its engine and its hydraulic cylinder gives it the necessary power to split any type of wood without any problem… and this for less than 500 €. I agree with the various buyers that the user manual should have been more complete but, at the same time, its operation is simple enough for you to take control of it without difficulty!

Forest Master Smart Log Splitter

Editor’s note: 4.5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

Forest Master Smart Log SplitterAs a hand tool, the Forest Master Smart Log Splitter is simply the best alternative to an axe. Easy to use and perfectly ergonomic, this log splitter uses a chain guide and a blade that you simply press down to cut the wood. The effort required is significantly reduced, it does not cause muscle pain and it is safer. Made from high quality materials, it’s strong and durable, and even comes with a second blade. Please note that it needs to be installed on a wooden block, but the drill is provided to drill this block.

My opinion : No more heating or electric motors, you have to go back to the manual to find cheap wood splitters! But out of all the ones on the market, this Forest Master smart log splitter is my favorite. The only difficulty it presents is to drill a perfectly vertical hole to install it in the block. Once this step has been taken, it is a real pleasure to use: it is robust and detaches, limiting the effort required. If you are tempted, do not hesitate, you will be delighted!

Fervi S015

Editor’s note: 4 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

wood splitter fervi s015To make the job of cutting logs more convenient, the Fervi S015 comes in the form of a walking splitter. Thanks to its particular positioning, it reduces the effort required during manual actuation.

My opinion : This Fervi S015 is quite well designed and quite practical to use. I even find that it has a good relationship between its strength and the physical effort required! I have to admit that compared to others it has a little more trouble on harder or non-precut woods, but for basic home use it can help a lot. The fact that it is not expensive is also an additional argument in its favor!

Fiskars 1001617

Editor’s note: 3.5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

fiskars log splitter 1001617Effortlessly and safely! The Fiskars 1001617 log splitter is simple: with its 94 cm long handle, it offers the ideal height and working position for cutting wood without straining arm and back muscles. Usable with one or two hands, it is also equipped with a damping anti-vibration handle. Made with a steel tube that guides the movement up and down, it is extremely robust and powerful enough to guarantee a precise attack, without the risk of false hits.

My opinion : The log splitter in its simplest version! This Fiskars is ideal due to its format: light and easily transportable, it allows you to always have it at hand, even at home when you have to cut a log in two. I also found it to do quite well, although it obviously reaches its limits on the thicker parts. But if you are aware of it, it should not be too annoying a detail and therefore you can let yourself be completely seduced by this model.
