Product Description (No Sales Tax!)

PowerKing is known for its professional equipment that perform with dependability and authority. The PowerKing 42-Ton 7HP ABS Kinetic Log Splitter uses efficient force and speed to out split hydraulic splitters 6 to 1. The kinetic flywheel design eliminates the need for hoses, pumps, valves, cylinders, filters and couplers typically used on hydraulic splitters, making for a much more simpler design.

This log splitter is built with heavy steel frame components and includes a heavy-duty tread plate 3 ft. x 4 ft. work table that is perfect for commercial use. The unit has a patent pending Auto Braking System that will automatically stop and reset the system when it is over loaded. This will prolong the life and effectiveness of the unit and its components.

This unit includes a cover, worktable, removable hitch, an expansion splitter wedge, a case hardened ram, a 3-year Kohler engine warranty and 1 sec ram speed that allows you to quickly split logs and focus on the job at hand.

Bought this machine. Came on the back of a semi. Machine had a small dent from a forklift I believe, but fired up without issue after I put it together.
How it works: this thing chews through wood faster than a forest fire! I've run a few cords of hardwood through it so far without a major issue. There are a few little things, however. The activation handle continuously works itself out and needs to be tightened every few minutes or you risk ruining the threads. The shipping damage was also a minor issue. But when you spend almost 3k on a piece of equipment, even minor issues are irritating. This is the reason for the 4 stars.
But this thing murders wood like an oak hating Ted Bundy for sure!

Hi David, Thanks for the feeback. Glad to hear the shipping damage was minor. In the future just note it on the paperwork and let us know about it. Glad to hear you love the log splitter, split safe!


Tom M. (Buffalo, US)

Product Arrived promptly. Shipping container showed signs of damage. When unpacking one of the fly wheel covers was damaged. Made contact with manufacturer along with photos of damage. Within 24 hours new cover was shipped and received it a few days later. The wood splitter works amazing. Added oil to brand new engine and engine started on second pull. Splits Oak and Beech logs 21 inches long with no problem, and Fast.

Hi Tom,

I am glad we were able to get you up and running quickly! Sorry on behalf of the shipping company with that slight freight damage. Glad you are happy with your new purchase.

Much more efficient than my hydraulic splitter. I actually look forward to using it because there is no time wasted.

joseph r. (Hawley, US)
