    While the physics of electric motors compared to internal combustion engines show that electric is a much more efficient conversion of energy, that's not really why. I prefer electric motors because they always start after a long winter, they are quieter, they produce no fumes, they require almost no maintenance and the electricity is delivered to my house.
    Literally plug and play.

    That was painfully slow. I do agree that an electric splitter would be nice if it would perform as well as a gas splitter but have the advantages you've listed above.

    I'm 65, the splitter is not the bottleneck in this operation. And remember, this is a $300, 5-ton unit.

    If speed is important, there is no hydraulic faster than the kinetic splitters, which are available with electric motors.

    I almost bought an electric Super Split. I'd still love to have one someday, but I decided on this instead: rps20170523_195328_848.jpg

    It's quiet too, since the motor is a long ways from the operator and it's quieter than a gas motor anyway. I like the Super split idea a lot, but this will do 32" wood, which a super split will not.

    Well that didn't take long. For the record I'm just backing that on my lot not taking it down the road.

    Nice work deets! What do you estimate you have into your splitter? I want to build one similiar to yours. I like the components you used. What's the cycle time? Any drawbacks to your splitter?
