Elliot .....when you split the wood....throw it off to the side and back and you will not have the problem of moving your splitter.

The hydraulic splitter is old technology.

Your just trying to talk yourself into believing you did not get screwed buy the Toro unit. The Kinetic splitter in most cases is just a better splitter.

Interesting study, one has filters, pumps, hoses, cylinder, valves, and hydraulic oil. The Powerking has none of these maintenance components. Just grease the ram. Powerking PK0303 is built for residential use and was overloaded to the max on this video, I was pleased it did well. Just a note for the future, in the directions it shows the hitch is reversible and stores under the work table. Look under your unit, there is a mounting bar for it. This keeps it out of the way when wood splits off the end and keeps it out of the wood pile so you can turn the unit when done and tow it it away. When splitting to the rating on the Kinetic at 1 Sec cycle time vs 12 sec cycle time on hydraulic you will find Kinetics 6 times faster as your not waiting for ram deployment and retraction. BTW Donnie Hazelwood comment is spot on, Powerking has a PK0342 42 ton with patented ABS and Brake Clutch technology that is the proper unit to compare for Commercial use which has heavy tread plate table. wheel jockey, swing away hitch, log cradles, big metal frame, all the stuff you need for big wood. You tested a residential splitter. Good video though, thanks for all the good comments on the Kinetic, I liked the video a lot, the 34 ton did perform well on the over all test. Keep up the good work guys, I was impressed. Gregg Neuer - Founder of Powerking - Las Vegas NV.

One thing I'm concerned about is the warranty. I was looking at a Power King wood chipper And they proudly proclaim a "Commercial 3 year warranty" but when you look, you will find that that is ONLY the engine that is covered. The rest of the machine has a 30 day warranty. 30 DAYS! Talk about a vote of no confidence. If they don't have any more faith in it, why should I? So I wondered about the splitter. (Don't assume, LOOK) Engine Warranty Kohler engines are covered with a 3 year commercial warranty for command pro series. Parts and Labor are covered. Visit your engine manufacture for warranty details or visit www.QVtools.com Equipment warranty Manufactures defects of chassis and components parts are covered for 30 days. Parts only are covered.

Power King does a faster more powerful Powerking Kinetic log splitter than that one but why didn't you get a Super Splitter, the original kinetic log splitter, they've been around for 40 years and there are some of their original spilitters are still in daily use.

Stanley, your uncle Harvey and your cousin Brad and I put up TONS of firewood. Now I burn mostly 34" logs in my outdoor boiler.

Turned out pretty much like I expected. The kinetic splitter works well on small, medium wood of uniform grain that's NOT green. The hydraulic splitter don't care what you feed it. It just humps.

You gotta let that ram go all the way back each time on the kinetic log splitter before pulling the lever or your gonna destroy the rack way before it's time.

Will take a hydraulic log splitter anyday. Have one for over 25 years. Never found a log it could no split, including aged Osage orange.
Mark Gutekunst, DC (9 days ago)
You also had 2 operators on the kinetic splitter and 1 with the toro. Operators are expensive.
WildXNature (9 days ago)
You didn't do a cost comparison.

The two small wheels in front, in mud will actually be harder to move than just two.

If frankie ran the kinetic splitter, it would be faster. He knows how to split wood with an axe, so he will know how to load it on the splitter properly. It would make a huge difference on that light duty kinetic.

After watching this I think I will stick with the old 50 year old home made would splitter with the dozer cylinder.
john doe (9 days ago)
It will come down to cost for homeowners. Most will burn 5-6 cords a year so the kinetic will be more than enough and it might last 10 years or longer with good Maintainance. The toro will last a lifetime for a homeowner but most will not spend the money for that machine. I would like to see a side by side of chippers(homeowner size 5" opening)

I could see both being used together effectively with a team of 4. Anf then PRIORITIZING the logs All the smaller or easily split logs is used by the kinetic splitter,for the ones that will take more than 2 hits on the kinetic splitter, the hydraulic splitter is used.

The smart thing to do with the connetic splitter is leave it hooked to the truck and as it splits toss the pieces in the truck so you're not double handling it.

I like to roll my big logs into the bucket of a tractor or skid steer and tote them to the splitter. Much easier to roll it out of the waist high bucket than to muscle them off the ground.
Thank for the input Chris!

I process 200 cords of wood with $1400 dirty hand tools log splitter from Lowe's. It's worked fine for over five years now.

For 30 plus years my dad and I cut, split and stacked a minimum of 500 cord a year . I started out with an “AMERICAN “horizontal wood splitter. This was a heavy duty commercial splitter keep in mind now. We replaced the motor 3 times because it just slap wore out. Hydraulic valve 3 or 4 times, it just wore out. The pump 2 times, because of ware. The oil filter was in the same spot as yours and never got damaged believe it or not. Since that splitter I bought a “Northern Hydraulic” 30 ton vertical \ horizonal. It’s at about 10,000 cord split with no ware, or major breakage. I also have a 3pt hitch tractor powered splitter but prefer for the most part the northern Hydraulic 30 ton model. My wood ranges from 12” to 52” plus inches across and very Knarly. Hydraulic in my book is the only was to go but . . . For the average urban home owner, kinetic is the way to go. Thanks for the video Stan, I enjoy them greatly.
Great info, thanks for sharing John!

With that type of splitter you keep the truck hooked up to it. Once the wood splits you throw it in the back of the truck with the tailgate down. Perfect for 1/2 cords.

Another great video, Stan. You and the kids make some really good points concerning log splitters.
Thanks Don 😀

I notice that there was a guy with brains using the hydraulic splitter.
Frank Reading (9 days ago)
You know you can install a jockey wheel for like $100 right?
Tim C (9 days ago)
Can't put time on safety. Hydraulic splitter is the only way to go
Donnie Hazelwood (9 days ago)
If your gonna compare it to the biggest hydraulic splitter you should get the biggest kinetic splitter to be fair. The same company has a bigger stronger kinetic splitter. Just saying!

It's best to have an extra set of hands when handling your massive log.
