Powerhouse XM-380 7-Ton Electric Hydraulic Log Splitter Review 2018
Powerhouse XM-380 7-Ton Electric Hydraulic Log Splitter boasts a safety feature for eliminating injuries so you don’t have to deal with the headache or backache of splitting logs anymore. The machine’s two handles simultaneously operate so both of your hands control the splitting tasks to avoid injuries. This log splitter retracts automatically as soon as you remove your hand from its lever so the next log can be loaded with minimal effort and in lesser time.
The Powerhouse XM-380 allows you to safely split more than a hundred logs in less than an hour at the comfort of home. Splitting a 20.5 x 12-inch hardwood log merely takes 6 seconds, and its hydraulic ram returns to its original position within 5 seconds so you can be ready to split your next log quickly.

Most of the reviewers of Powerhouse XM-380 7-Ton Electric Hydraulic Log Splitter agree that it has plenty of power and so easy to set up and use. The speed is comparable to a bigger splitter and you won’t have problems with the cords. It regularly splits 20-inch long logs without any problem. If the splitter hits a knot or hard spot and can’t continue the hydraulic fluid bypasses, the unit stops working. The motor must be power-cycled to return to normal operation which is a good feature for those who tend to excessively load the unit. If you carefully follow the instructions, this log splitter works fine.
Few owners of this log splitter complained that it only handles very soft and loose-grained small limbs and logs. It further reduces pieces which are already split but can be too large for other particular application. It can stop when they try to split any serious log and it retracts with the log impaled on the wedge.
Powerhouse XM-380 7-Ton Electric Hydraulic Log Splitter is a great machine for most of the users. There are few inconveniences experienced by few users but its overall performance compensates those complaints. Our team appreciates the power that this log splitter delivers. Also, it’s so easy to move around and transport.
