Before you start always wear eye, ear and foot protection and work gloves when splitting wood.
With one hand, hold the grip and place the splitting tip on the end of an upright log.
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!
Repeat step #2 until the log is split.
"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!!
"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!!"
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!
"Thanks a lot. In my humble opinion, your product is one of the
"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."
"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."
"Your wood splitter is terrific! I am giving them as Christmas presents
to other members of the family. Great invention!"
"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."
"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."
"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 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."
"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."
"... 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!"
"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."
"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."
"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!
"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!"
