Earthquake Portable Electric 5-Ton Log Splitter, W1200 is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 582.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Earthquake splitter If you're looking for a small, portable log splitter, for rounds up to about 20 inches, this works well. If you have the idea of using this like a 20 ton splitter, forget about it. I had a similar unit for over 10 years and used it every winter. I finally wore it out. It's nice to have another of these splitters again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from electric Log Splitter Easy to Assemble and to operate and is quiet. Just to low to the Ground.Had to set up on a bench to make it easier more comfortable to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like it, a good kindling maker. Works as advertised, runs slow in the cold but works for what I need.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functional I used the splitter on seasoned (1 year) post oak. The logs ranged from 12 to 18" long and between 5 and 16" in diameter. The splitter functioned as advertised for "most" of the logs. It did however struggle or stop with a few. Once those were split by hand with a maul, I was able to split them further using the Earthquake. A ton or two more would have made a great deal of difference. Seemed those pieces were just a little denser than the others. I thought overall that the splitter helped, perfect size of an 'occasional' user, am glad I purchased, but thought the price point was a little high. At this point I could see myself buying it or similar electric unit again, but would also consider a small gas powered unit that had just a slight more power. Tip; I put my unit on the tailgate of my truck and fed the logs from the same truck bed to the splitter and then tossed the split wood to the stack; back saver. Also always read the manual. I always get a little satisfaction as I discover things that I know a user who does not read instructions will or will not properly do.

You may split the green mesquite, but, the drier the wood the better and ensure you are splitting with the grain of the wood. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact Earthquake. You may reach them at 800-345-6007 option 1, then option 5 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Central time.

We used our splitter one time...split one log perfect then as we went to split the second log the push button doesn't work! We checked the outlet and fuse box then tried another outlet...should we exchange the log splitter or try something else?

Asked by: Tk94
Hi, I would try plugging it directly into the outlet to see if that works for you, otherwise try shortening the extension cord (50 ft max), it sounds like it may not be getting enough power. If you are still having issues after trying these please contact our customer service team at 1-800-345-6007 they may be able to diagnose it further by talking with you and if they find that it is a faulty reason they will help you with getting it returned and making it right. Thank you!
