Going With A Gas Log Splitter
A gas log splitter is, hands-down, the most flexible choice when it comes to a wide variety of log splitting needs. With over 4 major brands to chose from that range between 8 to 45 tons in rating, there is no job too small or too big for this genre of log splitter. Additionally, each gas log splitter is fully transportable and comes with a sturdy, durable tow hitch. Their wide tire base makes for a smooth ride, and also provides great ease when having to manually move them by hand. Whether you're looking to build a surplus of personal firewood, wanting to start or improve your own firewood cutting business, or preparing for potential future hardships, a gas log splitter is a must-have piece of equipment, and a valuable investment.
When it comes to selecting the perfect log splitter, one of the top criteria to take into consideration is cycle time. Gas wood splitters have some of the fastest cycle times for midrange tonnage in the industry. Fast cycle time isn’t always the best, though. Cycling any faster than 10 seconds often requires a partner just to keep up with the machinery. If you choose a splitter that’s too fast to keep up with, it’s going to wear you out, and this defeats the whole purpose of investing in a piece of machinery to take the heavy brunt of the work for you.
Power and Speed: I Want Them Both!
The great thing about a gas log splitter is that you can, in fact, have both the power and speed to take on any wood splitting job out there. There’s no reason to limit yourself to just one or the other. However, not everyone needs both power and speed, and if you’re in this camp, you can actually save yourself some money by choosing a modest splitter from our wide selection line to accommodate your needs. If you aren’t quite sure what you need yet, we’ve put together a brief list of important considerations:
If you’re consistently splitting logs 24 inches round or bigger, then you should place power above speed in priorities.
- If you’re consistently splitting smaller quantities of firewood for personal use, then you’ll likely appreciate speed above power.
- If you’re a regular when it comes to cutting multiple cords of wood throughout the year (commercial or personal use), then you should air to have both power and speed.
Brands Recommendations: Gas Log Splitters
When it comes to choosing any log splitter, a brand is far more than just a fancy name. We’ve been in the industry, now, a good long while, and put our experience into play in order to provide you with the best possible brands available. We carry the some of the most trusted, dependable, well known names like Yardmax, Swisher, & Oregon, who have been making log splitters for decades. We proudly also carry brands like Iron & Oak and Brave which are sturdy, American built machines.

- Ram Splitter
Going With An Electric Log Splitter
There are three primary reasons why having an electric log splitter might be more advantageous than a gas log splitter, so if any of them make sense to you, this could be the way to go in terms of purchasing the right splitter for your needs.
First and foremost, an electric log splitter doesn’t require gasoline or oil in order to run. The advantage is not having to buy, refill, and mix fuels for operation. Likewise, there are not engine components on an electric log splitter that requires yearly maintenance and cleaning to run properly (i.e., carburetors and fuel lines). Additionally, finding gas stations these days that sell fuel without ethanol *the best gas to use with smaller engines) is getting challenging, and if you’re primed to get some work done, but you just realize you’re fresh out of gas, then you have the hassle of driving to that one gas station across town who sells the right fuel.
Lastly, electric log splitters make significantly less noise than gas log splitters do, and while this seems silly at first, it doesn’t take that long to ruin your hearing when exposed to a continuous a continuous 85 decibels or higher.

Going With a 3-Point Log Splitter
If you’ve got a tractor, then we’ve got the right log splitter for you. Our 3-Point log splitters run right off your tractor’s hydraulics. If you aren’t equipped for that setup or have a lower flow rate, we’ve got a ready-to-use power-take-off (PTO) log splitter kit that hooks up directly to your PTO. The PTO log splitters are self contained and include a PTO pump, tank and all hoses. This eliminates the need of your tractors hydraulics. If you’ve never used a tractor log splitter before, you’ll be amazed with its versatility and balance. This self-contained unit works for any sized job, whether you’re running a firewood company, or simply building up your own supply of wood. By harnessing into your tractor’s hydraulic source of power, you’ll be able to use this log splitter with some of the biggest tree cuts in a fraction of the time. There’s no need for special fuels or electrical power cords either - with a 3-Point log splitter, all you need is your tractor to get the job done.
Between the two styles (the hydraulic and the PTO) are a few differences worth mentioning. While both split wood very effectively, the hydraulic splitter runs itself directly off your tractor’s available auxiliaries. The PTO splitter utilizes an external hydraulic pump that fits to the PTO shaft. The power to split wood is practically the same for both; however, with smaller tractors, both 3-point log splitters might experience less power with their reduced hydraulic flow rate.
We’ve got a few final points worth mentioning when considering a 3-Point log splitter. Generally, a shorter cycle time is better because it insures that you’ll be able to harvest a greater amount of firewood. The cycle time, here, equates to the length of time required to split a log and then retract for another split. The flow rate of the tractor plays a role in the cycle time. Basically, the higher the flow rate on the tractor the faster your cycle time will be. Our recommendations to run a log splitter off your tractors hydraulics as follows:
- 12-16 Ton should have 5 Gallons Per Minute (GPM) or higher
- 20-22 Ton should have 8 Gallons Per Minute (GPM) or higher
- 30 Ton should have 12 Gallons Per Minute (GPM) or higher
If you fall outside of these ranges then we would recommend a PTO kit.
Going With A Skid Steer Log Splitter
A Skid Steer log splitter is similar to a 3-Point log splitter, except that it’s made for the big industrial equipment like Caterpillars and Bobcats. Both the 20-ton and 30-ton options for a skid loader come with universal mounting plates, and have several directional configurations to choose from (i.e., horizontal, vertical, upside down). Did we mention our skid steer log splitter is made right here in the USA?!
We personally think seeing is believe when it comes to the sheer power of of a skid steer log splitter. With only the smallest amount of effort, you can pick up and decimate a humongous piece of tree cut and split it apart in just a few brief minutes - see for yourself!

30 Ton Upside Down Skid Steer Log Splitter Attachment 6 Way Wedge (SSUD30-6Way)
YARDMAX 25 Ton Horizontal Vertical Log Splitter (YU2566)
At 61 I’m forced to purchase a splitter because of the amount of wood I use. This is a high-quality piece of equipment that works great for my needs. I didn’t want another engine especially gas powered to take care of and having this 3 point splitter off the back of my 50 hp Kubota adjusting it to my height and working comfort is a big plus. I should’ve bought THIS splitter along time ago. Love the two direction split option.
Easy to use and works great! Kids can use it no problem!
Great company, customer service, and product. I would recommend to everyone who will listen!
Good addition to the tool set, as I aged, had to give up the maul. Love the machine.
Goal here is a helpful review: Purchased from Wood Splitters Direct in OR. Best price, terms, communication. They all ship from IL. Availability is on-and-off due to supply chain and demand. Excellent shipping crate packaging. Packing hardware is Metric as is log splitter hardware. Got mine in early Dec. 2020. About 3 cords of wood so far.
Get a “Briggs & Stratton 5081k Maintenance Meter” while you are waiting for delivery of your log splitter, cost about 25-30 dollars. Well worth it to properly time the care for your new engine.
Residential delivery is not available in all areas, had to pick mine up at the shipping terminal.
Review the assembly video several times and note the cautions about stability! I changed the assembly order by installing the axle and wheels as early as safely possible (before raising the beam vertical) to enhance stability and maintain solo assembly capability.
Download the owner’s manuals for both the log splitter and engine; and review them in detail.
The Yardmax oil that comes with the unit is made in China and is not graded to any API standards; therefore, it does not meet Briggs & Stratton warranty standards. I DID NOT use it. Use a quality synthetic oil graded by API as SM or SN or newer. Use the Yardmax oil to lube the chain on your chain saw. The Yardmax manual says the engine arrives without oil. Mine did have some oil in it (about a cup) that I drained before filling with high quality synthetic oil (16 – 20 oz.). Engine manufactures often test-run new engines then don’t fully drain them. DO “run-in” the engine for 5 hrs (about an hour at a time) at varying rpm unloaded and then change the oil per the maint. schedule. While doing initial engine run-in, occasionally exercise the unloaded hydraulic system after warmup.
25 ton is plenty for non-commercial use and has a quick cycle time with the 4” cylinder.
Recommend Log Table and cover. Design is strong and clean. All good for a DIY, quality tools, demand reliability kind of guy.
I found my new YARDMAX yu2866 wood splitter to be the best I have used. Easy to assemble and easy to move around by hand.
Log splitter arrived as promised. Assembly took about 70 minutes with the help of an overhead chain hoist. Instructions were clear and easy to follow. Only problem was 1 dust cap was a little loose but with a little stretching it seems to be holding tight. 2 pulls and the engine fired right up. Has a good cycle time and plenty of power. Would recommend.
I have split white oak, laurel stumps and maple directly through knots, wyes, and whatever else. The laurel stumps reset the motor fuse after 5 or 6 hits but they were the toughest wood I have ever tried to split. Fast cycle time, clean, and no maintenance. I would never ever use a hydraulic splitter ever again.
This review is about the Brave 3 point hitch mounted 20 ton log splitter.
I am 70. Splitting logs with a sledge and wedge was becoming time poorly spent.
Before making my decision, I studied available information about different styles: electric, gas powered, PTO powered, and 3 point hitch models. The 3 point hitch model seemed the right one.
When I contacted the customer service people at “Wood Splitters Direct”, I spoke with a knowledgeable woman who knew the product lines, and gave me some good information. Hence my decision to buy the Brave 20ton splitter.
If you plan to split wood for personal use, this is definitely a very good investment in one’s personal time and energy.
Thanks to the people at “Wood Splitters Direct”
I just received my 30 Ton Upside Down Skid Steer Log Splitter Attachment 6 Way Wedge (SSUD30-6Way). I attached it to my Case 450 and connected the hydraulic hoses very easily. I did have to cut the attachment holes a little bigger by about 1/4" to fit my loader attachment. Then I was off to splitting wood. So far I'm very impressed with the power and ease of use. Large clean and knotty logs split easily into 6 pieces and the pieces fell out of the wedges with no more than a couple of bounces of the loader arms. The splitter seems very solid, the welds look good, and the hydraulic hoses and ends are good quality. Made in USA! I'm looking forward to splitting wood for once!!
Wood splitters direct was great to work with, shipping was super fast. Log plotter came in a crate in perfect condition and exceeds my needs and expectations. I purchased the iron and oak splitter not only for the value in it, but it’s made in the USA. Thank you wood splitters direct and Stacy for the help!
Overall I’m happy with my purchase. Ordering was easy, pricing was fair (no sales tax is a bonus!), and the shipping was fast. I really like this log splitter. It came mostly assembled and well crated. A few bolts and you’re up and running. This thing is well built and very heavy duty. Splits logs fast (roughly 6 second cycle time) and is very powerful. I like that is has a stand and is easily connected or disconnected. I only have a couple issues. First is that the hoses don’t come with the connectors, (which I understand given the variety of setups) but there is no information available on what is needed. An owners manual is provided on the website, but it just calls for 1/2” NPT quick connects. However the hoses come with female 1/2” seal-lok / ORFS fittings. So you will need a 1/2” male ORFS to 1/2” NPT adapter if you are using typical ISO hydraulic quick connects. These adapters are hard to come by and not generally stocked locally. I had to order my online which led to unnecessary down time. My other issue is the connection to the lower 3 point arms. Again, no hardware is provided for these. I ended up picking up some lower link pins to bolt on to the splitter for ease of use in the future. Once you’re set up you’re good, but knowing this in advance would have been very helpful. Hopefully this helps someone else.
I love my Brave 30 Ton splitter.
I have used it every day since I got it.
It splits everything! Knotted elm stumps. Hickory, white oak, red oak, osage orange (tough stuff).
My wood pile has grown.
5 foot high 60 feet long 18-20 inch cuts. Made In USA! Great customer service. Prompt shipping.
Very satisfied customer!
