YS0552 – Electric Log Splitter
Good, Clean (Log-Splitting) Fun
The YARDMAX 5-ton electric log splitter offers the strength, speed and durability of a gas log splitter at a far more reasonable price. This 5-Ton Electric Log Splitter is high-powered, lightweight, quiet, and easy both to operate and to maneuver – inside or outside. The YS0552 comes with a removable stand, so you can split without bending over even if you don’t have a workbench, and with log trays to catch the split logs of wood. Runs on standard 3-pronged power outlet.
YARDMAX’s lineup of electric log splitters provide the ruggedness needed to take on the job — with the ease, portability and convenience of clean, electric splitting. Choose from 5-ton force or upgrade to the powerful 9-ton unit!

Can I sharpen the wedge?
Over time your YARDMAX log splitter wedge will dull. If you notice decreased performance, we recommend sharpening the wedge using a fine-toothed file, smoothing any burrs or crushed areas along the cutting edge. For questions about sharpening the wedge, call us at 844-YARDMAX.
