Easy Split Wood Splitter Information

How It Works

Before you start always wear eye, ear and foot protection and work gloves when splitting wood.

  1. With one hand, hold the grip and place the splitting tip on the end of an upright log.

  2. Keeping a firm hold on the grip, toss the hammer in a downward motion.
    Caution: Be sure to release the weight before it contacts the splitting tip!

  3. Repeat step #2 until the log is split.

Wood Splitting Tips

  • Placing a board under your log will keep the tip sharp. (Tip can be sharpened with a metal file.)

  • Place the tip in seasoning cracks. This works best for all wood, especially knots.

  • Ease up on the last stroke to increase tool life.

  • Some logs are too big to split in half (as is true with axes and mauls.) Start at the outside of the log, splitting off wood, and work around until the log is fireplace size.

  • If, in the unlikely event, the tool becomes stuck, do not try to force the tool out. The handle may bend (if this happens, bend it back the same way.) Drive the tool all the way through. Or in the extreme case where the tool resists movement in any direction, it may be necessary to use a wedge and sledge to free it.

  • For safety reasons carry the easy splitter upright by the handle. This will prevent the hammer from pinching skin or fingers.

Testimonials

"Although I was skeptical of your claims, I ordered the Easy Splitter because it looked like such a great innovation. I just received my splitter yesterday and I must say, I am astounded at how well it works. However, I believe you have undersold yourself - many of my large pieces did NOT have natural cracks. It did not matter - the splitter made its own crack and went right through even the biggest pieces of firewood. I will be spreading the news about this incredible tool to my family and friends. I am 110% satisfied!!
Great job!"

"I actually got wind of this from a coworker who was loaning it to a friend. He was on the elevator and I asked him where he got it. I got it yesterday and tried it out today and LOVE IT! No more breaking my back with a maul and splitter. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to escape backbreaking work. Thanks for a great product!!"
B. Callahan- Dale City, VA

Just received the wood splitter, man that was fast! Of course, the first thing I did was grab a chunk of wood and give it a go. COOL!
When my kids got home, I helped them split some wood. With a bit of help (and keeping them safe), 7 & 8 year-old boys have no problem splitting some well-seasoned ash.
Nice product, I'll be recommending it to my friends!
David Yates- West Chester, OH

"Thanks a lot. In my humble opinion, your product is one of the greatest
inventions known to mankind, or the lucky ones anyway."
Doug Gibson- Arlington, VA

"We borrowed the Easy Splitter from a friend and could not believe how handy and easy it was to use to split wood! We would like one for ourselves. Please forward all info on how to obtain one. Please include the price as we would like to order it immediately. Your immediate reply in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thank you,"

"I received a Easy Splitter last week as a birthday gift and, already, I can't imagine how I got along without it for the last 17 years. I'm currently using it daily inside my woodshed. In just a couple of minutes I can split the next day's wood without worrying about pieces flying all over the place, etc. Next summer my wife and I plan to use it outside at the wood pile where we'll be able to split at least twice as fast since she will use the Easy Splitter while I go back to the old splitting maul. In the past, my wife was unable to help because the maul was too heavy for her to use. Now I'm betting she'll split more than I will. Thanks for a great product."
Michael Abbott- Atlantic Mine, MI

"My tests confirmed that the device worked as advertised. I was easily able to make smaller splits out of firewood that had been too large to fit into my stove. I even tried it on a larger log (14") and was able to split it into pieces by going around the outside and splitting it with the grain. It won't replace a 10 ton hydraulic gas-powered splitter, but for re-splitting, making kindling and other tasks usually done with a maul or wedge it serves the purpose well."

"What I had expected to be a monumental task for me me to split our wood, proved to be much easier and faster than I thought with the help of your Easy Splitter."
Gloria Thompson- Binghamton, NYY

"I am a paraplegic, and burn wood for the major portion of my heat. It is essential that I am able to split my own wood. This splitter is the safest way for me to do it. Now I even enjoy making kindling! This tool is invaluable to disabled people."
Donald Gotschall- Choconut, PA

"This wood splitter has been great for my husband who had a stroke seven years ago, and had not been able to split wood until we discovered your product!"
Mrs Jean Schrade- Duanesburg, NY

"Your Easy Splitter is far safer than the wedge and sledge hammer method. I feel very comfortable letting my own son use it, and because it does not require great strength, my wife also uses it."
E. Kraus- Computer Specialist, Binghamton, NY

It did take a little getting used to, but it works like magic. ...at first the price seemed high but after using the Easy-Split it is worth the price. It does the job very well. My husband gave his approval, because he was able to split a log with your splitter that an ax would not dent. Thanks for a fine idea, made real."
M. Proctor

"... It is great. My wife has already split a few with it and pronounced it to be very user friendly! Everyone I show it to says the same thing --- "Why didn't I think of that!" carl krupp, publisher: self reliant living magazine- wolf creek, oregon

"The man who supplies me with my winter wood brought me huge chunks this year. They actually smother the fire they are so big. I've been very upset with the whole situation. I received the wood splitter yesterday and am now enjoying my fireplace again. It's simplicity and ease of use are a wonder. Thanks!"
Joan Autilio

"Your Easy Splitter is a great device. Not only is it utilitarian but it provides good non-impact aerobic exercise in the process. ... The beauty of the device is that it is not hard on tennis elbows or creaky shoulders."
Willie Jay

"Congratulations on designing such a great product. I recommend the Easy Splitter whenever I get the opportunity to friends and family. I wish you much success in your future."
Sincerely,
Mrs. John P. Willis

"It's great, though not quite as easy as it looks from the web page. Even so, it's much better for my back than whacking with an axe. Thanks again, it's a great product!
Sequoia Schroeder- North Hills, CA

"Wow! Thanks so much. I never thought I'd be able to split wood by myself. Another great step toward self-sufficiency! I'm actually having fun splitting wood. Thanks!"
