Overview

You'll never swing a splitting maul again.

Not when you can split wood faster and easier with the Electric/Hydraulic DR Wood Splitter.

Small in size, but plenty powerful, this machine does the work of much larger gas-powered splitters, but without any of the hassles. And it costs much less, too!

Plug the DR Wood Splitter into any standard household outlet (110v) and you're ready to get started. Then just load a log, push a lever and watch it split tough hardwood logs up to 10" in diameter and 20.5" long in seconds. Split a little at a time or work all day.

Features:

  • Quiet, no gas or oil...you can even use it indoors
  • Uses any ordinary 110-volt outlet
  • Splits logs up to 10" thick

Very happy

I bought this splitter for two reasons, first my back was injured and I was able to swing an axe anymore and the price. The money back guarantee was also good. Use it and return it if wasn’t happy. I have a a large pile of black locusts ready to be split. Well let me tell you this wood has been drying for a couple years and I thought this would be a great test. Th3 DR splitter went through it all like butter. I will say the rear wheel don’t work well for me as I use the splitter behind the shop and have to roll it over rough terrain. Ie my lawn. I will be replacing the small wheels with a larger/wider set. After a cord of test wood my back isn’t hurting and I have the beginning of a large stack of split wood for this winter. Thank you DR

This is the second 5 ton splitter that I've purchased from DR.My wife and I split several loads of wood, without any issues. It is easy to use. For the amount of wood that we are splitting, it does a good job.

I purchased this to split wood that I cut down on my 2.5 acres. I use the wood for an outdoor fire pit. The machine is very good and split all but a few of the biggest logs. I would highly recommend this machine. It shipped in just a few days and the customer service was great!

Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
for my use it is small enought to handle all the wood I cut. My wife is able to run the controls and I stack it. It is very well constructed and ease of use is outstanding.It has yet to be stopped and it handles all types of wood and sizes. The controls are easy to use and the cleanup is very simple, moving is easy with the two wheels and storage is a snap GOOD PRODUCT for me

Does everything as advertised and then some. Wish it was built taller so an old man wouldn't have to bend over so far. Has split larger than 10 pine easily.

I bought my first DR 4-ton in Nov. 2004. I split 5-6 cords annually x 14 years equals 70-84 cords. Replaced two handle springs. Until a seal started leaking and the ram failed to return, the springs were the only issue. I now have a 5- ton. I split mostly oak and white ash. No problem even with over size chunks but don't try large elm- too grainy. I am very happy. I now have a new 5-tonseems more sturdy with improved features. And it was 100 less than the 4-ton 14 years ago.

received this unit a couple weeks ago but just got to use it on nov 10th. had a 4 ton for a least 10 years and was eager to compare. first my 4 ton was a freak. never failed to split any piece of wood, knots or not. checked oil and it came full. open air release and plugged it in. split about 40 logs up to 10 inches, no problem. this unit seems built a little better than previous model. so far i'm very satisfied. mike perry, dunmore, pa

I owned a DR 5-Ton Electric Wood Splitter made in 2006, and this year the seal started leaking around the piston. DR told me they no longer had parts for that machine, and I should buy a new one. I did, and it works great, just like my old one. But two things are missing which disappoint me. First, I bought the table for my old one, and this one doesn't fit the foot and wheel stops in the old table, nor can you secure it to the table like the old one. Second, it doesn't have the wide tray which kept the split logs from falling onto the ground like my old one did. I wish both of those features could be incorporated into future versions.

Love this little bugger! Great secondary splitter. It allows me to Taylor split according to need. A must if you are using a 'Grate Wall of Fire' vertical grate with fire back! I'm a happy camper! I rate it a buy!

5 ton splitter

I had a DR 6 ton electric splitter, lasted for like 15 years, loved it. When it died I was told DR no longer repairs those, so I bought a K 10 flywheel splitter at DR's suggestion, it is no where near as good as the 6 ton. So then I bought a 5 ton electric splitter, what a disappointment, weak, slow not 2 speed like the 6 ton was. I am disappointed in DR, spiraling down.

Q.What maintenance is needed for the Pilot 5TE log splitter?
A.Thank you for contacting us. Maintenance for the DR Pilot 5TE is pretty straight forward.

Before each use, you should check:

The log Ram and Guides

The splitting Wedge for Sharpness

The general condition of the Electric Log Splitter (e.g. nuts, bolts, welds, etc.)

The Ram for smooth travel

The condition of the electrical cord

The hydraulic fluid level



Every 150 hours you would need to change the hydraulic flui.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.
