Boss Industrial ES7T20 Electric Log Splitter on grass

Boss Industrial ES7T20, 7-Ton Electric Log Splitter, Review 2023

The Boss 7-ton electric log splitter has a 2hp, 115Volt, 60Hz, 3400rpm, 13.5 Amp electric motor.

It’s designed for one-handed operation and has an auto return.

The splitting cycle is 14 seconds (9 forward & 5 backward).

It has wheels for ease of movement, and it only weighs 133lbs, but being electric, you probably won’t need to move it too far.

It doesn’t sit very high above the ground, but you can purchase an optional stand if you don’t like the standard low profile option.

You can purchase an optional four-way splitter attachment for 

time-saving if you’re splitting wood into smaller pieces.

The log splitter comes pre-assembled with hydraulic fluid supplied.

The log splitter is most suited for private back yards or small farm use.

Being an electric log splitter, you can only take it so far, so running it from a generator requires one that can handle the motor’s capacity. Unless you want to use it near a power outlet or have a decent generator, I suggest you consider buying a gas-powered log splitter.

A vast majority of the customers who buy this product appear to be very happy with it.

It does appear that some customers who have had issues with this product have not followed the correct operating instructions. I know from personal experience that reading the manufactures operating instructions is sometimes a bit of a bore. Sometimes things that appear straight forwarded and simple have a hidden catch. So it does pay off to read it.

The Boss 7 ton log splitter does come with a two-year product warranty.

Although some reviews state that the log splitter can handle a log diameter of 18in or more, you would have to know what type of wood they were talking about and whether it was dry/hard/soft.

Realistically for a 7-ton log splitter, you can confidently say that it will split logs around 10in in diameter. If you regularly split bigger wood, you need to confirm that its hardness rating is less than what the splitter can handle.

All in all, it seem s like an excellent product for its price range and intended use.
