"...I have seen other models of wood splitters but none have the same values as Split-Fire.  It is much more comfortable to work with. My first machine I owned since Oct. 10 1997 and it has paid for itself 100 times over and I know from experience that the second one will do the same.  I am glad I bought Split-Fire model SS290 and SS294.  Glad to have done business with Split-Fire.”

wood splitter testimonial

Terry P.A. Taylor's Split-Fire SS290 and SS294 log splitters have served him without fail since 1997 (available today as Model 4290).

“…I bought a Split-Fire 4403 10 years ago and every single time I use it I marvel at the brilliant well pondered design and supremely heavy-duty construction. I pat myself on the back for buying such a quality product. I heat my home with wood and supply my neighbors with firewood so my log splitter is a very important machine on the farm. I just wanted to say “Thank You” for not cutting any corners and for building a product that will last more than a lifetime. I’m extremely tough on my tools and equipment, the Split-Fire takes everything I throw at it with no signs of ever letting up. It is built, as you know, like a tank. Literally. Appreciate your Integrity!”

"…after several months of shopping for a 4" or 5" woodchipper, I was lucky enough to find the Spit-Fire website. The specifications and price were what I had been looking for but could not locate. After visiting with Kyle Kirktown, I made a very wise decision and ordered the 4020. Delivery from Canada to Colorado was prompt. The 4020 exceeds my expectations! Everything on the chipper is quality, even down to the Carlisle tires. I feel very comfortable recommending a Spit-Fire to anyone in the market for a quality unit!!”

~ Bill Hakala, Buena Vista, Colorado, United States

“…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.  I would recommend a Split Fire product to anyone, no faults to be found what so ever, great machine."

Alan Whitlam has been using his trusty Split-Fire 2-Way Log Splitter to prepare his firewood for over 30 years!

"The Split-Fire was more expensive than some of the other brands, but it looked like it should take the abuse of being a rental unit. It has been a very good rental unit for about 2 years now. We have not had to repair anything since it was bought. The only thing we have done is maintenance - change oil and replace the air filter."

~ Dale Cameron / Battle Lake Standard, Battle Lake, Minnesota, United States

"...I purchased one of the first machines off Split-Fire years ago. I’m on my second machine and I split 30-40 cords per day without missing a beat. Such a kickass machine, I always recommend people get a Split-Fire as they won’t let you down.”

“…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!”

~ Charles Crossman, Wheaton Settlement, New Brunswick, Canada

Owner of Split-Fire 2265 Gas Powered Log Splitter

2-way wood splitter

" wife and I have rented a variety of log splitters since 1986 (Black Forest, Colorado, 7700’). In the 1990s, when our regular Rental Company first offered Split-Fire 2-Pass log splitters, we tested one and immediately liked its simplicity, efficiency, and dependability. Since the beginning of this century we have never used any other system; we (among others) asked for the Split-Fire 2-Pass log splitters by name. By 2010, due to customer feedback and its own reliability, the Split-Fire became the only log splitter that the Rental Company would carry. We liked the Split-Fire so much that eventually we bought one for ourselves."

I am still amazed! The wife says I am like a kid at Christmas with a new toy. It is incredible how fast and powerful this thing works. Makes splitting large amounts of wood easy and fun.

~ Bryan Lombard

Renter of Split-Fire 3255 2-Way Gas Log Splitter

Wood Splitter

“…Split-Fire Wood splitters split in both directions. The time, and fuel saving are greatly enhanced by this design feature. The relatively thin splitting wedge makes much better use of available engine power, cutting through heavy knots easily. 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.”

“…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.”

Jim Scott and his Split-Fire 3265HT 2-Way Log Splitter with Optional Log Lifter.

“…Split-Fire offers the ability to split blocks of wood up to 48” in length. Because I am feeding an outdoor wood-fired boiler, this is a valuable option. I could simply cut wood to a manageable length/weight. However, I have found that by cutting wood to the longest practical length then split it to a manageable weight is most efficient. I have found that it is faster to split wood than to cut it. The splitter uses less fuel than the saw. I’m not bent over while splitting the wood as I am when cutting it (easier on my back). I spend less time sharpening saw chain because of the reduced number of cuts.”

“…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.”

“…the Split-Fire two-way log splitter is amazing. They split twice as many blocks as compared to the single stroke splitters. You almost need three people to split with this machine. One on the controls and two feeding the blocks.”

"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 business - people keep coming back for the red log splitters!”

~ Brian Grant / Grants Rentals, Bridgewater, Massachusetts, United States

Owner of Split-Fire 3255 2-Way Log Splitter

“…I recently purchased a model 4403 splitter with a log lifter for my tractor. My uncle and father burn a good amount of wood in their outdoor furnaces and I wanted something reliable and efficient for them that could also take the heavy lifting out of the equation for them. Not only does your splitter exceed my expectations, your customer service is even better! No more heavy lifting, much more efficient splitting, and a company that answers phone calls even 2 minutes before closing time! Thank you!

“…The optional hydraulic lifting table is well worth the investment. It lifts those really large blocks off the ground for you, again saving your back. This will allow those of us who are getting a little older to continue gathering firewood for several years beyond our youth. Additionally, it is very handy for stacking several smaller blocks of wood from the pile in preparation to be split saving steps, and time.”

“…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...”

“…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.”

“…we purchased the 3-point hitch model over 30 years ago from your shop. I would like to brag about it in the Farm Show Magazines “Best and Worst” buy section. This would be written as the Best Buy as it has worked flawlessly since purchased. It has split 10-15 cords of wood every year. Only maintenance we have done in 30 years is change the Teflon sliders once. Great product!

“…I got the wood splitter yesterday, and my son and I put it to work today. Wonderful machine, real quality item! I'm really pleased with it. It'll be nice to have it available since, in the past when I've rented a log splitter, I usually try to do too much before it has to be returned, which means I'm beat by the end of the day, and I've increased the risk of getting injured. Now, if I've bitten off more than I can chew, I can leave it for another day. Well worth the cost, especially when measured against getting a finger caught because I'm tired. Anyway, you guys make an excellent product!”
