We really value our customer’s feedback, and testimonials regarding their experience with our 2-Way Log Splitter, and We Thank Them for it.

After-all, it’s for that very reason we invented and perfected the best log splitter on the market – the original log splitter to double-your-productivity with a 2-Way Splitting action, while keeping you safe!

“..with either the two-way knife or four way-wedge the 3455 easily cut through 15 cords of red & bur oak this season and some pieces were pretty gnarly. The unit is completely solid and stable under any load. The 3455 is everything as advertised, and I cannot overstate the value I found in the two-way cutting. I am very pleased with this unit and its performance and I believe you just can’t do better.”
~ Bob Summerville, West Nipissing, Ontario, Canada


“…I purchased a 3203 recently and had to call Split-Fire to tell them how impressed I was with the customer service I received! As you can expect we don’t split a lot of wood in south Alabama but I can assure you for those that do I’m doing it better with more production than the rest! I’ve purchased 100’s of pieces of assorted equipment in my career and seldom do we experience this degree of “truth in advertising”. It exceeded our expectations both in simplicity and performance! We got a little carried away and now hoping for an extended winter in south Alabama as I’ve got enough firewood for another couple of months.”
~ Gary Cox, Alabama, United States


“…quality, longevity and efficiency, were the highest priorities driving my decision. Most splitters were quickly eliminated from my consideration due to poor construction, and inferior components. There were a handful of brands that I considered to be of quality construction utilizing top-shelf components. Split-Fire won my business for the following reasons: purchasing a Split-Fire wood splitter is a substantial investment; however, when longevity, reliability, efficiency, fuel cost, maintenance, and operator comfort / fatigue are considered, Split-Fire brings value to your dollars.”
~ Jim Scott, Townsend, Montana, United States

“…we have purchased three 3255 log splitters. Being able to split on both strokes is a great selling feature because it’s easy to tell people that production is doubled. The Split-Fire is a great revenue builder for our [rental] business – people keep coming back for the red log splitters!”
~ Brian Grant, Grants Rentals, Bridgewater, MA


“…this is the best splitter I have ever seen or used. Delivery was faster than Amazon. Split-Fire 4490 Gas Powered Log Splitter with Custom Options.”
~ Richard Evans, Smithers, British Columbia, Canada


“…I’ve used the Split-Fire for a total of about 4 days now and have completed splitting about 5 full cords of wood. Total time spent was perhaps 12 hours. It’s an extremely well-built machine, and handled all my wood, even the gnarly stuff, with ease. It’s also extremely fast, and the hydraulic lift was great for handling those 2+ diameter pieces. Now if it would only pick up and stack the wood…”
~ Ken Ketcham, Michigan, Illinois, United States
