  1. 5 out of 5

    What a power house no matter what kind of wood it cuts threw it like butter and the dual split you get it done half the time

  2. 5 out of 5

    I am 57; I am not easily impressed. I will write this review with the caveat, its a first impression. If the future allows I will come back and update or write a follow up review next year. I have a beautiful 30×40 workshop that is loaded with tools of every kind. I am a Tim Allen around the house.

    I spent several weeks studying splitters. I read as many reviews as I could find. Interesting there are not many reviews on this machine. I chose this machine because the reviews on most of the others ranged from atrocious to so so. The few I could find on these seemed acceptable. I also studied the manufacturer and they passed muster. I liked the manufacturers point of view on the hydraulics. I learned from reading many reviews that the hydraulic element is much more important than the power source. I liked the fact that the hoses were coil wrapped on the standard machine; it was not an additional option. That spoke to the quality of the hydraulics.

    Additional factors revolved around the fact that I was buying as a home owner. I plan to split wood for several widows who also have property with available wood. I live on a small ranch with plenty of cut it yourself wood available. Our sole heating source is wood. I was not looking for a production machine. As I considered the fact that I would use this machine for a week or two each year and then store it, I decided electric was the way to go. I wanted a power source that required NO maintenance and I wanted a small footprint for storage purposes. I have a powerful electric pressure washer that is over 30 years old. It was in storage at one point for over 15 years. When I got it back out, checked the oil in the pump and fired it up, it ran perfectly. Its also a smaller footprint than gas powered pressure washers so it stores in a smaller space. That is what I wanted in a splitter.

    The machine arrived in about 5 days. It arrived in perfect shape. No abuse of the shipping package. It was well packaged with a wood bottom in the packing box and it was strapped to a custom built pallet just the size of the box. I used an overhead hand winch to lift it from the box. I wanted to save the shipping packaging in-case it needed to be sent back. I did not want to cut the box. The splitter only weighs 215 lbs. However when you get it out and start trying to move it around you quickly realize this is a beast. Based on the picture and the description, and the weight of the competitors at 600 to 1000 lbs, you think this is going to be a bit dainty. You think you are going to have to baby it a bit. You could not be more wrong. You are not going to break anything off by leaning on it. There is no plastic and this is not made with thin gauge metal anywhere. I repeat this is a beast; it is built for the job.

    I read all the instructions. It doesn’t really say if it comes full of hydraulic fluid so I stood it up per the instructions and found no oil on the dipstick. I went and found some AW32 hydraulic oil. I had to research hydraulic oil to learn about this because I did not find any in my little Podunk town. I had to drive 10 miles to the next town. You can find it in most chain auto part stores. It actually says AW32 on the container and comes in gallon jugs. So I ended up putting 1.5 quarts in the machine before it came up to the proper level. You only need buy a gallon because it only holds 3.7 quarts if completely empty. I don’t think it comes in quarts.

    I put on the handle, wheels, and log racks. I put some hydraulic oil on a rag and oiled the wedged and sliding ram area. I plugged it in and turned it on. Wallla, it ran. I cycled the ram through 3 cycles per the instructions (with the vent screw loosened). I stood it back on end and checked the fluid. No change in fluid level. It was late in the day and very cold. I did not want to wrestle this thing over to the wood pile (about 100 yards away). Besides it was raining out and I wanted to split the wood in the doorway of the shop. I took my lawn tractor and wagon and went to the wood pile and got a load of wood. I was splitting seasoned black walnut about 16″ long and 8-10″ round. Black walnut is tough and stringy. It is often twisted and the grain curves. It has very little straight grain. It split beautifully. I was impressed. I love the dual direction splitting. It helps with twisted grain and it speeds operations up. I am in no hurry of course because I am not a production outfit. At no time did the machine sound like it was under any strain. There was nothing in my pile it would not split. At this point, first impression, I am impressed. I had fun splitting wood for the night. I am making an 80’ 10/3 extension cord to use over by the wood pile. Tomorrow I will go split a cord of wood and see how it goes. At this point I can only conclude that this is the splitter of choice for any homeowner or small group of homeowners to share.

    At the ripe old age of 52, I was getting tired of axe and wedge splitting. Looked around a little and decided to try this one. Simply put – I’m very pleased! I just spent a 3-hour stint doing a bunch of maple from 6 to 16″. Had no problems whatsoever. Even tackled some pieces that were all knots, crotch and cross grain, and the only groaning I heard was coming from the logs. Wood that I previously would have chain-sawed up, or just left in the woods as “unsplittable”, I was munching up without issues.

    In the interest of complete disclosure, I’ll mention a couple of very minor, almost insignificant problems. First, the stance of the wheels is rather narrow, and I would be wary of moving the machine over any sort of non-smooth terrain at all. For me that’s not a problem – I’m using it in my garage. Second, one of the hydraulic hoses was potentially in the way of a log when spitting “towards” the valve. This required about 15 seconds of crack-the-jam-nut, move the fitting about 5°, then re-tighten. Finally, there is a minor leak at the copper sealing washer on the fill plug. I’ll attend to this soon – should be easy to find one. These mentioned items are extremely minor, and should not deter anyone from getting this machine.

    Back to the good stuff. The only non-metal parts appear to be the wheel treads and the hoses. Everything else is welded steel construction. The crate said 214 lbs. and that seems about right. I got it off the back of my truck myself, but it was not fun and I wouldn’t recommend it. Get a buddy to give you a hand!

    The dual action feature is great. No waiting to return before the next cut. Really kept the cycle time down. I haven’t yet had the opportunity to beat the machine up for weeks or months, but my first impressions are quite positive. At no time was there any doubt about whether or not the log was going to split. A few ugly ones I had to flip end-for-end for a second pass, but these were logs that would have just laughed at an axe or maul. This time it was me doing the laughing!

    It’s been a month since my purchase arrived and I wrote my first impression review.

    I have been splitting black walnut and pecan. We had a small tornado come through our back yard about 4 years ago. it blew down a couple huge black walnut trees and about 6 large pecan trees.

    I cut them up and stacked the rounds along the fence line last year. The largest rounds were up to 5 feet across.

    I have been cutting the 3 foot diameter rounds in half, with a chainsaw. The larger rounds, I make several cuts. Then I lift these large chunks onto the splitter. I always oil the blade. Hummm, groan, crack. Everyone of them splits. The machine never sounds stressed. I have cut through a cord of wood. This machine is amazing. Everything smaller than 20″ diameter and 18″ long simply cracks apart.

    I cannot imagine why a homeowner would ever need or buy anything larger than this machine.

    I will follow up again next year.

    [Wood Splitter Direct Response]: Gland to hear your great success! Please note this log splitter is not designed to do such large logs and could result in more wear faster and should not be expected based off this or any other review.

    I received my Boss 10 ton a couple weeks ago and used it for the first time recently. Needless to say I am very impressed. I did do ALOT of research and appreciate all the previous reviews as they were very accurate. The unit comes shipped on a pallet and packaged decently. The cardboard on one end was crushed but zero inside damage. I would definitely recommend the additional lift gate service as I’m not sure how one would unload this as it is very heavy. (Unsure why lift gate service is extra, it’s required! There is no way UPS could deliver this)The unit requires a 20amp outlet and heavy duty power cord. I had an outlet installed which cost another $125 but I felt that electric was less maintenance and less mess. Also there aren’t many new gas log splitters in the $1,000 price range. As I said before the unit is heavy and heavy duty although I wish it was made in USA. I was impressed with the sturdiness of all the components. I would recommend having at least 2 strong adults on hand to put the legs on. My one wish would be for a wider stance on the wheels and possibly bigger pneumatic tires. Be sure to have a couple quarts of the AW32 hydraulic fluid as the unit is shipped with no where near the correct level (confusing because the manual says the level has been set by the manufacturer) Having experience with hydraulics I cycled the splitter a few times WITHOUT any wood with the cap off to expel any air in the hoses and also to meet the correct oil level. The electric motor will let you know when you’ve gone too far one way (screams a bit but not overly alarming) The dual action feature is awesome and will no doubt save you time. Easy one hand operation and the wood trays on either side are a huge help too. It was easy on my lower back as the unit sits just over waist high for me (I’m 6′) I didn’t split anything huge but the unit didn’t blink at anything I threw at it so I would feel comfortable in going up to the 12″ limit. I am extremely satisfied with my purchase and highly recommend it.

    I received my log splitter a week ago. It comes in a metal framed crate which really protects the machine. It was a pleasant surprise when the truck arrived. I have been doing a lot of research on electric splitters and settled on the Boss 10 ton as the best out there in its class. I couldn’t wait to assemble it and get to splitting. This machine is very heavy duty and a bear to assemble alone. I did but much easier if you have an extra set of muscles to help. After looking through the parts list I discovered it was missing a dozen lock and flat washers, also missing was the axel bushing. I immediately emailed Boss directly and after 6 days still no answer. Anyway I assembled the unit with my stash of washers and did not install the wheels as I am waiting for parts. You will need to level the machine if you choose to go this route. Hydraulic fluid was low but only by a few ounces. One of the side log racks also did not properly fit on its brackets, I had to persuade it into place with a hammer. Once I turned it on and started splitting this machine for the most part is unstoppable. I split ash logs that are not even dried out and this machine just kept going. It has no problem going through knots or “Y” shaped branches. I am not disappointed in the operation of this machine and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a garage or woodshed splitter. The only reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is the lack of quality control and customer service. Once beyond that this beast is amazing to use.

    Good news:
    I was looking for a powerful but small electric wood splitter that would fit in my 10’ X 16’ cottage shed and still allow space for the rest of my equipment/supplies. After much research I came across this one. I purchased it without any trouble. It was delivered without any problems. I had purchased the lift gate drop off option and the truck driver was nice enough to roll it up my driveway and into the garage (gave him a nice tip). I uncrated it and everything looked ok. I checked the oil level as recommended by other reviewers and found as they did that it was not filled to a usable level like it was stated on the unit. I had already gone out and purchase a gallon of the recommended fluid. It took an additional ½ gallon of fluid to bring the level up on the stick.
    Bad news:
    I had purchased a 1 ton lift to raise it up to complete the leg installation. The front stand went on without an issue. Installed one of the two rear legs into the splitter and it went in fine. Tried the second and it wouldn’t go in. I tried swapping it to the first legs location and it would go in. Tried sanding the end of the leg to take off any burs. Still would not go in to either side. I got out the dead blow hammer and it started moving. After 40 hits it was in place never to come out again. Now I went to install the axle. It went through the good leg, but wouldn’t go through the one I was having trouble with. I measured the holes and found that the good leg had a 5/8” hole for the axle and the one that was giving me trouble had a ½” hole. I drilling out the hole to 5/8” and almost broke my wrist when my low speed/high power drill motor caught and spun. I was able to final get everything assembled.
    Final Thoughts:
    I love the machine!
    Putting the assemble problems behind me the splitter works great and I’m glad I had selected this one. It is very nice to be able to run the splitting wedge control with one hand. The height is nice and the side racks are very helpful, so you don’t have to keep bending over to pick split pieces off the ground. It didn’t have any problems splitting 12” to 14” logs. I would recommend this unit. My 4 star verses 5 star rating was also due to poor quality control.

  8. 5 out of 5

    this machine is simply a godsend, most of it the fact that you can work upright. it splits everything period.
    there could be improvements such as the ends should accommodate a 2×4 stub so as not to torque the motor off.
    it should be more open underneath so as to eject wood scraps and not clog itself so you need a screwdriver to fish out the scraps.
    its quite heavy. too heavy for me to move much .
    i think it would benefit from 3 wheels and a wider stand so to move it in rough terrain easier.
    if the cpy could sell a ramp with rolls so the split wood can be placed on it to roll right into a container that would be useful.

    overall: a terrific machine, best i have ever used. highly recommended.

    I had a couple of spruce trees that were destroying my driveway cut down and bucked up this spring. Knowing that I was old fat and very out of shape I knew I would not be splitting them with a maul and wedge. So I started looking for a small splitter that might do the job. found this ed10t20 boss splitter which seemed like it might do the job. It arrived on time and I proceeded to assemble it. I sure wish it came assembled, it is pretty heavy for one guy to manhandle. I had ordered a game hoist to hold it up in the air which worked good while I put the legs and wheels on. I then went to screw on the control handle and found the slot in the control valve cover it had to fit through was covering a third of hole it had to screw onto. so I removed the cover and made a wider slot. I checked the hydraulic fluid and it was ready to go.
    The trees were extremely knotty and up to 26 inches in diameter so as I waited for the rounds to dry out I worried that maybe this 10 ton splitter was not strong enough to do the job. I sure did not have to worry. despite the knotty, stringy and twisted wood the boss splitter powered right through the rounds. it did stall out on two occasions but we just took a new bite and it powered right on through.
    My daughter and I were constantly amazed at the way it just powered through the toughest looking round without a problem.
    PROS: good price for such a powerful machine, it is waist high, great design, one handle operation, large heavy duty log trays on the sides, did I mention how powerful it is?
    CONS: a wheel or wheels on the front might be nice, definitely needs a wider stance on the rear wheels for stability, Judging from my experience and the other reviews here the Chinese factory could use a better QA inspector. which is the reason I gave it four stars instead of five.

    I was using a 5 ton electric and it was not getting it done. Bought the Boss 10 ton and it has split everything I put in it even old hedge.
    Other than weighing a young ton it is everything I hoped it would be.

  11. 5 out of 5

    two years later: refilled oil once. still the best splitter ever used. best is that you do not have to bend over picking up pieces, lifting them: they are in my military trailer, at hip level and after splitting they fly into the woodstack. i can do a cord in an hour without fatigue!

    Just what I wanted. I have a hydraulic splitter that mounts on the back of my tractor at home, but at my second home, I rented a splitter when I needed one. I found that rather inconvenient unless I had a lot of wood to split, but I didn’t want yet another small engine to run and maintain in order to have it work when I need it. This Boss splitter looked like the right size and quality level for me…and I was right. I have used it for several hours now and it hasn’t failed to push through anything I’ve tried so far.

    Shipping went well. I added lift-gate service and the driver placed the unit in front of my garage where I requested. She was very nice. The splitter was extremely well packed. It actually had a custom steel frame protecting the carton on all corners and elevating the shipping carton, so that it could easily be moved with a pallet jack or forklift. It was in perfect shape when it arrived.

    I grabbed my tools and removed the shipping frame, then opened up the box. This unit is heavy. I’m a young 65 and still in good shape, so I was able to do the unpacking and assembly alone, but you might need two people as the instructions suggest.

    The instructions recommend setting the splitter up on a support so the legs and wheels can be installed. This, of course requires that you have something of the correct height and strength to hold the splitter off the ground. Also, this would require a vertical lift of the entire weight of the splitter. Definitely a two man lift, unless you have an overhead hoist. I gave it some thought and decided I could take a different approach. I laid the corrugated flat to use as protection for the finish and tipped the splitter on end with the motor end down. Prior to this, I checked the oil plug to be sure it was secure and it was, so I didn’t lose any hydraulic fluid. It required care, but I was able to install both the front leg and rear legs and wheels with the splitter on its end. Then I braced one foot on the center of the axel and tipped the splitter up to the normal horizontal position.

    The splitter is really well made in my opinion and has an excellent fit and finish. Rugged, but very nice looking and durable. I bought a 25’ 10 gauge power cord and plugged the splitter into one of my covered outdoor outlets. The power switch is a single spring loaded push button that depresses for ON and pops out for OFF. I think a rocker switch or two button switch would be an improvement, but it works if you are careful and precise in how you press the button. The motor for the hydraulic pump does emit a pretty significant whine when it is running, so even though hearing protection isn’t necessarily required, you might want it. I will keep a set with this for future use. I love the lack of gas fumes while I’m splitting … what a difference. Like others, I also appreciate the standing height of this splitter. It is much easier than bending over for hours…though you do need to pick up your wood blocks or start with them in a trailer as someone mentioned. Use your knees!

    It isn’t speedy, but the two way wedge makes a pass in either direction productive, so it is fine. The bed was long enough to handle the longer blocks in my pile which can sometimes be problematic for smaller splitters. Thank you, Boss!

    As one reviewer noted, debris can get packed into the motor end of the wedge carriage. Be sure to clean that out periodically. Also, this splitter is fairly heavy even just to roll around. Be sure to pull the wedge carriage all the way back to the motor end to place as much weight as possible over the wheels. Even so, I might get a small four wheel dolly to place under the stiff leg when I’m moving it around on cement or asphalt, just to make it easier. The wheelbase is narrow, so be very careful if you move it on uneven or sloped terrain. It wouldn’t be fun (or safe) to tip this over and you could lose hydraulic fluid if the breather cap fell out, as I suspect it would. The manual says to keep the shipping plug for the oil reservoir, but that is a cheap disposable plug you would normally discard, so you will need to find a safe place for it. If I was going to transport this periodically, I might look for a pipe cap that fits on the fill tube and use that rather than the plug that came with the splitter.

    Overall, I am very happy with my purchase and hope to enjoy many years of use.

    I bought the ED10T20 at the beginning of August (2019). Read all the reviews, watched all the Youtubes, and talked to the Woodsplitter folks. This felt like the splitter for me. It arrived via semi. Driver allowed me to unload it into the back of my pickup, and I was on my way.

    The splitter was in proper working condition out of the crate. It was a chore for one person to uncrate as it is very heavy (over 200lbs.) it is very well made.

    While waiting for the splitter I collected two standing beetle kill ash trees, most of a buckeye tree, a felled norway maple, and a good bit of a honey locust for a total of just under two cords of firewood. I started splitting on a Wed afternoon and finished splitting all that wood by Thursday eve.

    Three things stood out in the process. 1) get the 4 way wedge. It’s a time saver. It makes 8-10″ logs a one pass split – done. It will split logs up to about 16 inches but there will be two little pieces and two big pieces after the first pass. The two big pieces will need to be split again. 2) The dual action split is a HUGE time saver! I soon learned to position the splitting wedge just so, so that as fast as I could move log, I could split it. This not only speeds the process but makes it fun. I split 18 rounds (up to 16″) in less than 30 minutes. I thought that was pretty good. 3) The log racks are a must. These racks are a back saver.

    The splitter jammed on two occasions. Both were when I was splitting the honey locust and when I was splitting a log that had a branch. It can’t quite break that tough crotch wood. It DID split crotch ash and buckeye though.

    Late in the splitting week I came into a bit of 14″ round mulberry and it split that up without effort.

    I am very impressed with this machine and look forward to next years splitting. I highly recommend the ED10T20. If you are considering the ED8T20 spend the extra money and get the 10. You won’t regret it. The machine is quiet, efficient, and easy for one person to operate.

    Splitting wood with the sun!
    I am impressed with this machine.
    We live in an off grid home and are always looking for ways to use up extra power on sunny days, this is why we decided to try the electric splitter.
    I did have my doubts, would it have enough power? 14 inch diameter 18 inch lengths of standing dead pine did not load it at all.
    It looked top heavy in the photos, I was concerned the legs might be flimsy, happy to report it is rock solid. The log racks each side are strong and well designed.
    The shipping crate was surrounded by welded angle iron! It was very well protected for the trip.
    The small bit of assembly required was quick and painless.
    It is SOOOO nice to do this chore with the smell of split wood and the hum of an electric motor instead of listening to and smelling a gas engine.
    The hydraulic reservoir has a temporary plastic plug for shipping that you swap out for a dipstick/cap. If you pull the plug at 8,500 feet elevation you will get a face full of hydraulic fluid spray, use a rag to cover it.
    The shipping was super fast. My only (very small) issue was that Boss did not seem to get the shipping details to Woodsplitters Direct fast enough to let me know the thing was here!
    Thanks for the great service and machine
