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. Swisher log splitters allow you to buy a quality American made product for the price of many imports. Made in the USA!

First, I'll say the retailer Wood Splitters Direct was very impressive. No drama. Even when a challenge to my self unloading with tractor forks vs liftgate, they made my part easy. The splitter itself: I've been log splitting since around 1980. I had an old harbor freight splitter (20 ton.) It was time to retire it and I wanted to go American made. I researched quite a bit. I needed to go with a vertical version as the wood keeps getting heavier over the years. I thought electric sounded cool, mainly to eliminate the noise. I did know from other reviewers the whine of this electric engine is far from quiet. I get that and will still use my ear plugs. I was convinced to make the investment, American made, electric, etc. and having the long travel to Oregon. At first it didn't seem to perform. I was using a heavy commercial grade extension cord from a 20 amp outlet. I then decided to run my emergency generator and run direct before complaining. It made all the difference! I'm happy I have it and hopefully it outlives me, but do know electric has it's limitations. Running a gas generator to power the "green" electric is kind of ironic. But, it is reality. Putting it together from the crate was not a problem (well, maybe a few alignment issues until my wife helps me!) I split all kind of wood and it's the "uglies" that we know when a machine stands up. I think this will now, but just be advised of the power drop using electric. The quality of all components, especially welds, seems great!
Hi Michael, thank you for the review. We appreciate you taking the time and the kind words. Glad to see your happy with your splitter. Swisher makes good products and the USA made is definitely a bonus! Thanks again and happy splitting!
Splitter works as advertised . No log stripper seems available . Would be nice if Swisher offered this splitter already set up for 220v thus eliminating the need to hire an electrician to convert the dual voltage motor . Alas, the tow ball coupler and wheel bearings are Chinese .
Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Most people do not want to be set up to run 220. I think its great you have a choice to to convert the dual voltage motor to what you prefer. This log splitter is classified as USA made, but to be classified as that status not every single part on an item has to be made in the USA.
There is a certain percentage or formula for that. For future reference of any item you buy from a store that is 'USA made' and if its important to you that a hitch coupler or what ever little part on that item is, I would recommend contacting the store ahead of time to get that information. I hope you enjoy your log splitter and thanks again!
It would be 5 stars if the paint on the top of the head didn’t chip off causing a few small rust spots in the first week. Plenty of power to split madrone and wet oak rounds. Quiet enough to run without ear plugs. I also wish the documentation mentioned the amount of hydraulic fluid I needed to fill the tank initially.
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.
Great communication fast shipping so far the wood splitter is working great
Great customer service before and after the sale!
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.
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.
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!
