The Swisher 120V 22T electric log splitter is the perfect home accessory for fireplaces or wood-burning stoves. This log splitter provides a quieter option than traditional gas engines and can be used indoors on a standard outlet. The heavy-duty 2-stage pump provides maximum splitting performance. The splitter can function in both horizontal and vertical splitting positions. Just raise it with the beam lift handle and secure it in place with the vertical beam lock.

The log cradles reduce the chance of the log rolling off the beam. You can easily transport your splitter anywhere you want to go as it's road towable.

Other features include: 25-Inch opening, 2.5 gallon protected poly hydraulic tank, and a log stripper. Swisher log splitters allow you to buy a quality American made product for the price of many imports. Made in the USA!

Assembled Unit Dimensions: 88" x 41.5" x 39" 456 lbs

Please note about residential / lift gate delivery:

You must select the $75 lift gate option if this shipment is going to a residence (unless you can unload the 500+ pound crate with something like a fork lift).

Glad I went electric

I’ve owned several woodsplitters in my 73 years on the planet. All have worked well, but the gasoline ones require too much “babying” and thus are too temperamental for a needed machine (yes, we heat primarily with wood). So I bit the bullet and went electric with the 22 ton Swisher splitter. I was helped in this decision by several years of positive experience with a 16 ton electric splitter that served many needs, but struggled with big rounds of hardwood. Here are my experiences and recommendations:

1. You will need at least two and, for one step in the assembly process, three people. The splitter comes mostly assembled, but you will need to lift and move several heavy assembled parts. Do NOT try this by yourself alone unless you have access to heavy lifting machinery.
2. The motor really does require a 20 amp circuit. Because electrical power at my splitting site is far from my house, and because I have an older house with only 15 amp breakers, I ended up buying a 3500 watt generator which worked fine for the woodsplitter. Do this if you don’t have a dedicated 20 amp outlet near your splitting site.
3. One negative is that this splitter has no “stuck log removal brackets” on the splitting shaft. This is an easily corrected design flaw that is very occasionally needed.
4. Overall the splitter is well designed and built to last. Unless you are doing all your splitting in a garage or shed (and thus protected from the weather), buy the cover.
5. The hydraulic fluid reservoir really does require 2.5 gallons of hydraulic oil. I had no hydraulic leaks in my system, as noted by some observers.
6. Yes, this unit is pricey, compared to gas engine-powered splitters. But you pay for reliability of electrical power, which is where we all are headed anyway for many aspects of our industrial-consumerist lifestyles.
7. This machine is made in America, which still means something, at least to me.

Great splitter. We had a problem with hydraulic fluid tank leaking at first but they immediately sent a replacement tank and it seems to be working really well. The customer service is great! The splitter almost makes wood splitting fun.

I Like It! I Like It A Lot!

Easy than I thought to assemble. Took less then hour to have it up and running.
Works great with my RV Generator.
Just the right amount of features to make it a great splitter.
It ain't perfect, but it's pretty close.
No regrets buying this beast.

James M. (Eugene, US)

Fantastic unit. I love that it is electric, works great in the garage and my fears about strength were quickly allayed. It powers through very gnarly ash even with a 4-way splitter head on it.

Vito P.

The LR22E split even maple & alder with ease. the 4 stars is only because it's much louder than it should be for an electric motor. Other wise it's great swift & durable, after 4 hours my wife said I like splitting wood.

Thank you for your review. These do come with a very powerful electric motor, so they are not silent by any means but still much quieter than the gas motor. Thanks again!

Work smooth and strong great product

Very Satisfied

Wanted larger electric splitter. Found several manufacturers, but most backordered or out of stock. The Swisher splitter was more expensive, but after unpacking, inspecting and then using the splitter, it was worth the extra cost. Very well packaged in a crate, simple to assemble (did it alone, likely easier with two people as the components are heavy) and easy to use. My only criticism is the clutch assembly between the electric motor and the hydraulic pump was not assembled correctly so it did not engage when I first turned on the splitter. Ten minutes of investigation and I saw the problem. Fixed in another ten minutes. The problem was the set screws which hold the clutch in place were loose allowing the lower portion of the clutch to slide down the shaft of the hydraulic pump. Not fatal, but might have created some trouble for the mechanically challenged. Once the splitter was operating correctly, it worked flawlessly and nothing in my wood pile slowed it down - oak, knotty pinion, cedar……. Very satisfied, should meet my needs for the next 20 years.
