Steele 5 ton Electric log splitter is everything we expected.

The steele 5-Ton electric log splitter was everything we expected.  Small, lightweight easy to store.  Splits up to 20" long logs with ease.  Hubby loves splitting wood now!

Good Luck with yours

Took delivery March 18th, finally received missing parts today, May 12 and guess what, THEY WERE THE WRONG PARTS! Called Sears to express my dissatisfaction with this line of product they are carrying and the gal at Sears was very understanding and helpful, thank you Phyllis. She is issuing a return order to UPS and they are picking up this item for return and refund. Can't tell you how it runs as I have never plugged it in. Without those parts this cannot be operated safely. By the way, instruction manual was also missing but I did end up with 3 of them. Don't ask. Needless to say I will not be trying the Steele brand again as I was more than patient and civil with this manufacturer but this experience and it's lack of a positive conclusion has put me off (surprised?). Thankfully Sears is standing by their merchandise and rectifying the problem so I remain a loyal customer as I have been for more years than I care to divulge..

not as expected

My husband and I were upset to learn that the log splitter was purchased from an out side source that was portrayed through the Sears web site. the wheel broke off the second day and we learned the product can not be returned. So we are stuck with the log splitter.

WORST EVER !!!

I got this little thing to save money but wish I had listened to the smarter guys because the 5 tons power is just not enough.
Buy a splitter with a 9 tons power if you want to enjoy your life!!!

Good value for occasional use splitting chores

This tool is very similar to many other Lawn & Garden electrical tools.

You are going to get a lot more work done, over a longer period of time, than attempting to split the same volume of wood armed with just a splitting maul.

An electric tool also has advantages of speed over a manually "pumped" hydraulic splitter.

This tool is basically ready to go, with a quick connection to a near-by electrical outlet.

If you have a "wood lot" then you will eventually be going gasoline engine powered hydraulic splitter.

But, this model electric splitter is an excellent intermediate use tool.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
