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
"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
"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 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!"
