Pow ‘R’ Kraft 65575 7-Ton Electric Log Splitter Reviews:

Research on the Pow ‘R’ Kraft 65575  indicated that it is a safe, effective way to get your firewood cut for the season. Reviewers said that it is delivered fully assembled and is ready to be used immediately. All you have to do is unpack it, place it in your desired location and read the instruction manual.

Reviewers mentioned using this log splitter successfully on several types of wood, such as oak, maple, mesquite, pine, ash and walnut. Some mentioned the fact that this product cut their splitting time and that using this log splitter made their job much easier than doing it by hand.  They enjoyed the ability to use this splitter with a choice of two speeds.

By placing this splitter on a table, reviewers were able to save their back from the strain of having to bend down to place the logs. They were also impressed with the easy, two-handed operation of the unit which is a safety feature that keeps users from injury. When used with wood of the recommended size, this product was reported to work as well or better than expected.

One thing that several reviewers mentioned was that the wheels on this log splitter do not seem to be made for rocky or uneven ground. When used on a smooth or hard-packed surface, though, they seemed to work fine.

A couple reviewers stated that the unit did not perform to their expectations and that they were not happy with their purchase. They said that it did not split the wood that they used it on and gave the product a low rating. However, several reviewers commented that the manual plainly states that there is a bleed nut that must be loosened before every operation and tightened afterwards for the splitter to work. If you neglect to do this, the product will fail and become damaged.

Based on the amount of satisfied customers who used the Pow ‘R’ Kraft 65575 7-Ton Electric Log Splitter according to it’s directions, we highly recommend this product as a way to quickly, safely and efficiently split your firewood. More electric log splitter reviews available here
