As we have already mentioned, electric splitters are the most popular among homeowners who need to split wood only occasionally. They are not as expensive as gas machines but still provide enough power to deal even with fairly large logs.

And the necessity to use an extension cord doesn’t hurt that much in this case – they are simply not meant to be taken into the woods to tackle felled trees.

Also they are quieter, require less maintenance and you can use them even indoors as there are no exhaust fumes. That can be useful particularly in bad weather – you just move from driveway or patio into the garage.
