If you burn wood, you should get a Smart Log Splitter!
Comments about Product: So, we had a chimney redone this fall and had a wood burning stove insert installed as well. We love burning wood for ambiance and the heat. We have had a stash of dry wood from a couple of trees we had cut down and realized now we needed the tools to pare them to size. We ordered the Smart Log Splitter hoping it worked as it showed and it sure does. So easy and not the danger of flinging an axe about. We set it up under our carport and had a lot of fun splitting wood on a bit warmer of a day. If you burn wood, you should have one of these. Not tiring at all. We store the larger piece in our basement and leave the pole attached to the stump to the side of our carport. You will like this. :)

Comments about Product: Got this to help my husband cut the wood. It did a good job for most the logs. Once the log is split in two it is easy to cut into two. For large logs husband used the maul to cut, I could do them, yet it did take a lot of slams of the splitter to get this done. Worth having as valuable tool.

AMAZING! Great for us old folks!
Comments about Product: This is an amazing product. I can literally split a HUGE log with one hand. It's easy to install. They even provide the drill bit and the wrench. What we did need to do is use the shop-vac to get the sawdust out of the hole. Recommended it to my friends on Facebook! Can't recommend this enough. Fabulous!

Works as advertised, but....
Comments about Product: Excellent tool for splitting softwood and smaller pieces of maple and oak. Large pieces 8 - 10 inches (diameter) of hardwood require many blows with the weight, providing a good upper body work out.
Smart Log Splitter
Comments about Product: I got the Smart log splitter the other day and I amazed how easy it is to use. It saved me from renting a Log Splitter or trying to split by hand. Great tool, highly recomend. Leave it to the Swedes to come up with this.

Good - but...
Comments about Product: This splitter is easy to use and the set up instructions take all of two sentences. I like the splitter, but folks should have a realistic idea of what its capabilities are. If you are cutting soft wood that is not too wide - say no more than 12 inches, this is probably a great tool. I had a few logs about 8 inches wide and it took three strokes to get through. However, my first big project was cutting oak tree sections - probably 18 inches wide. The Smart Spltter could not split the entire section, so I still had to make the initial split with a wedge and sledge hammer. Once that was done, I could use make the Smart Splitter on the two halves - which I split into four logs each. This device does not work by gravity alone on hardwood. I'm a big guy and pretty strong - I had to slam the weight down on the wood (oh by the way, do not let your fingers get too close to the top of your log as the splitter gets deeper - you'll only do that once). It probably took a good 15-20 shots to get through the wood. Now, the wood I was splitting was pretty stringy in the center, and that definitely slowed things down. On the other hand, when splitting wood with a wedge and sledge hammer, my back usually limits how long I can go. When using the Smart Splitter, there is no back pain - and that is a nice feature. You'll get a pretty good biceps workout too. All in all, it's an excellent tool for the price, but be sure to temper your expectations - it's still a lot of work to cut up firewood.

easy to use
Comments about Product: I use this to split kindling from a cord of wood I buy each fall. I've had it 3 years and absolutely love it. I'm not a muscular woman, almost 50 years old and usually have sore muscles for several days after I cut my kindling for the year. I just put on an audiobook and split wood for a few hours... no problem.
I have problems with knotty pieces, so I keep those as larger wood. No need to work hard, I try to keep everything simple and easy.
My suggestion is to buy several, (maybe 10), extra washers from plow and hearth and keep them in your tool box, labeled as log splitter washers. You will go thru them about every cord and a half.
I am currently trying to buy these washers from plow and hearth. Last year I bought them from a site in England, and the cost was ridiculous..
