"I purchased a Split-Fire 230 three-point-hitch splitter back in 2000. Twenty years later it is still working perfectly, after splitting split more than 200 cords.

“…the 3203 can split many types of wood.  The hydraulic lift table worked great and provided plenty of working space while splitting 100 lbs.+ pieces.  I was able to split several slabs then stack and re-split them making quick work.  It even performed well on knotty and stringy elm.  The 3" slightly setback extension eases into the wood making for a 11" total split.

Most of the time 1300-1400 rpm was all that was required, then bumping up for tougher pieces.  This was attached to a LS 3038 tractor.  Don't buy - INVEST in Split-Fire!"

“…Split-Fire, just wanted you to put this in your testimonials, I purchased a Split-Fire 2265 at a logging show in Ohio over the weekend, and couldn't be happier with the purchase. The two way splitting is the best idea in splitting wood I've ever seen, and I split a lot of wood very small to boil sap in a syrup cooker. Basically doubling the output will make much shorter hours behind the splitter this year. I started it just to see that it would work well and worked longer than I expected and split more in 1/2 hour because due to the lift attachment my back didn't start aching like usual. Awesome machine and I'm looking forward to splitting instead of dreading it this year. Your dealer that I purchased from (Andy from Mass.) was also great and I'd recommend this splitter to anyone.”

"...as far as the 2265 goes, we are extremely pleased. The two way split system is so fast. The single knife is great, we prefer it over the four way split that we have used before, it gives us the versatility to split logs as we want to get the right size. Compared to the 3265, other than weight, we have not seen a decrease in performance or quality of construction.

The customer service was excellent, it was a pleasure to work with the staff over the phone to get the unit we wanted and ensure that it would work the way we anticipated. It was delivered on time as promised.

Thank you once again for such a great product and for all of the support, it made it a enjoyable purchase."

“…back in the late 1980’s myself and my father in law rented a Split Fire for the first time from a company in (Galt) now Cambridge, we were so impressed with the high quality and the production that when we returned the rental we immediately ordered a new one. Absolutely no regrets ... we replaced the engine once and the plastic sleeves inside the frame. About 4 or 5 years ago I purchased the hydraulic lift attachment it sure saves your back. At the same time we upgraded the axle to gain more height (following your company’s instructions), helps save your back also.

“…my Split-Fire was delivered today and as anticipated, it’s a very fine machine. I already have most of my wood split down for the season. I accomplished this over the weekend, This is a success! This splitter made this a simple, easy, and painless job. To be honest it’s a smaller and lighter weight machine than anything I have ever owned in the past. But all of this means nothing. Its much easier to move around as the 2265 is perfectly equal to my needs here with the type of wood I split. Yes, for my self it was quite a substantial investment $-wise. But on no level am I sensing I’d gone to far or made a mistake. This machine is exactly what I was looking for! Thumbs up for the Split-Fire 2265!”

“…my Split-Fire was delivered today and as anticipated, it’s a very fine machine. I already have most of my wood split down for the season. I accomplished this over the weekend, This is a success! This splitter made this a simple, easy, and painless job. To be honest it’s a smaller and lighter weight machine than anything I have ever owned in the past. But all of this means nothing. Its much easier to move around as the 2265 is perfectly equal to my needs here with the type of wood I split. Yes, for my self it was quite a substantial investment $-wise. But on no level am I sensing I’d gone to far or made a mistake. This machine is exactly what I was looking for! Thumbs up for the Split-Fire 2265!”

"...I have owned a Split-Fire splitter since 2012. It is in constant use and always runs flawlessly. This splitter is very efficient and never quits, I just change the plug and oil every season. The other day a log broke off the valve handle. When I called into Split-Fire the customer service could not have been more accommodating. I love my Split-Fire and hope to get years and years of use out of it."

“…I finally got the splitter all connected and was actually able to test it out a few weeks ago, it worked flawlessly, and I was pretty impressed with its efficiency. Believe it or not, I’m actually looking forward to using it more aggressively splitting wood for the winter. I’ll keep you posted, but my initial thoughts, great build quality and worth the money!

“I would like to thank the entire crew at Split-Fire. Your conceptual designers have come up with a unique, and efficient means of splitting firewood. Your engineering department has done a superb job of bringing strength, and longevity to this product. They have made provisions to efficiently utilize the engines power, and simplify maintenance. The sales staff provided accurate communication between myself, and the fabricators to fulfill my order … I highly recommend Split-Fire’s products, and people.

Quality, longevity and efficiency, were the highest priorities driving my decision. 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. Split-Fire Wood splitters split in both directions. The fact that the splitting wedge moves through the wood, rather than the wood being pushed through the wedge, means that the split wood remains right in front of the operator ready to be split further, or stacked without chasing, or bending over to pick wood up from the ground, saving time, and your back. The optional hydraulic lifting table is well worth the investment. This will allow those of us who are getting a little older to continue gathering firewood for several years beyond our youth."

“…we have had our Split-Fire splitter for over 17 years and counting. Every once in a while when you reflect on things you think 'that is one of the best investments I ever made'.  That is definitely the case here. We live in southern Michigan.  We split 5 or more full cords of hardwoods every year.  It splits everything.  It starts every time. And it is reasonable to handle and operate.  Even at 70 years old, I can lift it by the tongue (with cylinder retracted) and walk it around when necessary.

Too many people equate size, horsepower and hydraulics (cylinder size and tons of splitting force) with ability/capacity.  But this unit is elegant in its simplicity. It has a smallish 9 hp Honda with a 2x24 hydraulic cylinder.  I have yet to feed it something it could not handle.  The secret is in the construction of the log stops.  They impart mechanical leverage/force that when coupled with the hydraulic force is unbeatable.  The two way splitting action is a dream.  Theoretically, the retract direction has a little less force.  But from a practical standpoint there is no difference.  And running the cylinder in a piece of rectangular steel virtually eliminates any opportunity to bend the cylinder shaft. Something that can unfortunately happen on one of the brutes, with a huge engine, large cylinder and standard log stops.

The icing on the cake is the hydraulic lift.  For pieces up to a certain size leave it in the fully raised position and stack your material to be split on your "temporary work table".  When you get into the bigger material roll them up to the lowered lift and raise them with the lift.  In either case, then get to work splitting in both directions.  With the lift/table the work stays directly in front of you at all times.....no falling to the ground off the back side or the end.

One option that I highly recommend is larger tires.  It raises the level of the splitter and eliminates a lot of bending.  And it makes transporting more agreeable."
