I have a cool mother in law. Really, I do. She bought me a log splitter for Christmas last year. We discussed it, and we simply couldn’t justify the cost of a gas splitter at this point, so we went with an electric version. Harbor Freight tools is known for low cost tools. Some of them are pretty good, some, not so much. One thing about Harbor Freight, I have always found that they stand behind their goods, and have a more than fair return/exchange policy. After coupons I think we got this guy for around $200.
I put the log splitter to the test, and here are the results.
