Champion 7-Ton Compact Horizontal Gas Log Splitter

Champion 7-Ton Compact Horizontal Gas Log Splitter 2023 Advice

The Champion 7-Ton Gas Log Splitter has an 80cc OHV engine and a ram force of 7 Ton. It can handle logs up to a length of 19in (Please note this is the length of the wood lying on the splitting beam, not its diameter) and 50lbs in weight.

The Champion 7-Ton Horizontal Log Splitter has a low profile, and is compact in size. Which makes lifting logs onto the splitting beam very simple. Some customers have suggested that this may be a disadvantage as it causes them to bend more, but you’d have to say, it would be far less of a toll on your back than using an ax to do the job. The log splitter has an auto-return function to keep the job moving. You can stop the auto-return at any time if the log is shorter for quicker cycle time. With wheels, a handle, and a weight of 143lbs maneuvering the champion 7 Ton log splitter around the yard or small acreage should be a breeze. You do not have the capability of towing this log splitter. At its lighter weight, a total length of 53.1″ and height 18.1″, two people should be able to lift it into the back of a truck with relative ease. This log splitter is suitable for back yards and small acreage needs. Most costumers who purchase this product are generally happy with it.

Some customers report that this log splitter has an erratic operation and low output pressure. Many of them appear to say this when the product is new. Champion claims that this is due to not cycling the hydraulic system properly on first use.

This log splitter has a low oil level sensor, which shuts the engine down. It protects the engine from severe damage. 

I have noted that when negative comments on this product get written on buying platforms, Champion generally respond with tailored and useful feedback unlike other brands which react with the same input for any negative comment

Champion 7-Ton Compact Horizontal Gas Log Splitter

This log splitter would probably suit people that need the flexibility to move it around without having to worry about an electric power supply.

Realistically due to different wood hardness and knots. It wouldn’t suit people who require splitting wood of a large diameter but is a good option for anyone who splits logs with a diameter of around 10″, and a weight of 50lbs or less.
