3 Reasons to Go Electric
Electric log splitters are the ideal alternative to the traditional gas powered log splitters for many reasons. For the sake of time, we're going to narrow our list to the Top 3 Reasons why we love the electric log splitters for sale here at Log Splitter HQ.
Number One: Decreased Operation Noise
This isn't usually something that's taken into account when choosing larger machinery. Many of us simply accept that powerful equipment is going to be loud. It doesn't really seem like much of a problem at first, but when you realize that prolonged exposure to loud noises can permanently damage your hearing, it's time to start thinking about it.
The folks over at Dangerous Decibels state that for every 3 Decibels (dB, for short) over 85dB the amount of "permissible exposure time" is cut in half before damage may occur to your hearing.
Noise in Decibels by Source
- City Traffic: Approx. 85dB with a safe exposure time of about 8 hours
- Hair Dryer: Approx. 90dB with a safe exposure time of about 2 hours
- Gas Mower: Approx. 94dB with a safe exposure time of about 1 hour
- Chainsaw: Approx. 106dB with a safe exposure time of about 3.75 minutes
- Rock Concert: Approx. 112dB with a safe exposure time of about 50 seconds
- Leaf Blower: Approx. 115dB with a safe exposure time of about 30 seconds
Number Two: Zero Liquid Fuel
Based on some of the most popular electric log splitter reviews, this is the most common reason why people convert to electric splitters. Without having to worry about gasoline or oil (in most cases), you're able to eliminate one of the biggest hassles of owning and operating a log splitter: refilling tanks. Which also eliminates irritating trips to the gas station when you suddenly realize you used the last of your back-up gas reserves already.
Number Three: Job Site Flexibility
What a lot of electric log splitter owners' forget is that you can safely use your splitter indoors without the need of special - and expensive - ventilation. This is because electric log splitters don't spew harmful exhaust and fumes! Not only is this perfect for those of us who living in colder weather, no one enjoys working in a blizzard, but it also makes your new splitter environmentally friendly, too. What more could you ask for!
Electric Log Splitters: By Usage Grade
Just like their gasoline cousins, Electric Log Splitters are divided into 3 Major Categories: Consumer Grade is perfect for light usage, Prosumer Grade is the way to go for medium usage, and Professional Grade is the must have for heavy duty usage.
Consumer Grade Electric Log Splitters are machines with up to 6 tons of splitting force and most operate using standard 110V outlets.
We Recommend: The Boss Industrial 5-Ton Electric Log Splitter
Prosumer Grade Electric Log Splitters are machines between 7 tons and 15 tons of splitting force and most operate using standard 110V outlets. Some splitters may have the option to be wired for 220 outlets, so be sure to double check the specs chart before you buy!
We Recommend: The Boss Industrial 10-Ton 2-Way Electric Log Splitter
Professional Grade Electric Log Splitters are machines with 16+ tons of splitting force and may require specialized outlets; few will function with standard 110 outlets (although our recommendation below will)! Always double check the spec charts before you purchase a Professional Grade splitter!
You will find several configurations and customizable options to choose from when shopping at Log Splitter HQ. Always be sure to look over the product descriptions and spec charts carefully.
