Overview
K10 RapidFire


SIMPLER—the K22 has very few moving parts to go wrong, especially compared to hydraulic splitters with their pumps, valves, pistons, hoses, and fluid. Plus, there's no gas, oil, or fumes. Just plug it in and start splitting. What could be simpler?

STRONGER—a 55 lb. flywheel spinning at 400 rpm stores energy from the K22 Electric's 1800-watt, 120-volt electric motor.

FASTER—energy is unleashed via a rack and pinion gear, achieving a lightning-fast, 2.5-second cycle time (the time it takes for the ram to split the log AND return!).

Product Summary
  • 2.5-Second Cycle Time
  • Outsplits any 22-Ton hydraulic
  • Automatic ram retraction
  • Splits logs up to 18" long x 30" diameter
  • 1800-watt, 120-volt electric motor
  • 55 lb. flywheel
  • 2 Year Warranty (90 day commercial)
Features

1800 Watt Electric Motor

onvenient 120-volt, plug-in motor delivers a powerful punch without the hassle of gas, oil, and fumes. Plus, enjoy the flexibility of splitting wood indoors or out!

55-lb. Flywheel

The K22’s cast-iron flywheel has more than double the weight and momentum of our K10 Model’s flywheel -- for splitting longer, larger, tougher logs.

Twice-Hardened Steel Pinion Gear

The Pinion Gear transfers energy from the Flywheel to the Ram. Industrial steel is case-hardened twice during manufacturing for bomb-proof durability

Auto retraction on a DR log splitter

Auto Retraction

With ordinary splitters you have to engage the return lever until the ram is back to its starting position. The RapidFire retracts automatically, leaving your hands free to load the next piece of wood for splitting.

16-inch DOT approved all-terrain tires on a DR log splitter

Easy to Maneuver

With a built-in handle and 11" pneumatic wheels, the Premier model is easy to maneuver around your property by hand. Or, purchase the optional Yard Towing Kit and you can tow it behind any vehicle with a pin hitch.

Optional steel work table on a DR log splitter

Heavy-Duty Steel Work Table

The RapidFire’s steel work table means no more stooping down to pick up split logs. After a log is split, the pieces remain at a comfortable working height, so there's no need to bend down to retrieve them for a second split.

Extremely fast cycle time. I had to cycle multiple times for some of those gnarly knotted pieces we're all too familiar with. Motor has a very nice quiet hum. If you are going to be splitting wood over 18 long, or sizable rounds, then you're going to want to get the larger K34 model. The delivery crate was very strong and well made. Don't attempt to have it delivered to your home unless you have a forklift. It's way too heavy.

Splits fast any wood size I give it. Has draw back

Rating: Product Review Stars: 3.00 star rating
Works preety good for awhile then motor stops by protection of reset able fuse many times through out operation and have to rest after it cools for 5 to 18 minutes. I think the motor is too small for the log splitter and needs 3hp from 1/2hp on it. You spend more time waiting for it to cool the longer you use it. Not happy about that. Other than that it works great and is quite. Fastest log splitter I ever used.

Fantastic Time Saver!

I tried out my electric motor powered K22 Rapidfire this weekend. I purchased it for home use, splitting about one and a half cords of wood per year. In my side yard I had about ten rounds that I was not able to split by hand using a maul and wedge because the wood was too dense, knotted, or just plain ornery. The rounds consisted of various scrounge woods (mulberry, sycamore, and Chinese elm) that I had acquired through on-line ads. I must admit, I had my doubts based on the low number of reviews for the electric motor powered splitter on the DR webpage, a number of on-line videos, the omnipresent Internet “experts” and their comments, and my own experience trying to split some of the rounds. (I’m no shrinking violet, I’ve got plenty of experience with a splitting maul.) However, I could not be happier with my splitter. In many cases, the rounds were not a one stroke split. I wasn’t surprised by that because I’d had my maul bounce off the sycamore rounds in previous splitting attempts. Imagine how happy I was to discover that the splitter was able to split all of the logs! Not only that, but it was able to handle some of the nastiest knotted mulberry that is impossible to split by hand. After the tough stuff, I split another 20 or so rounds of ash. The splitter went through them like butter. I am so happy I bought the splitter because I got my side yard back. All the rounds are split, cleaned up, and stacked. I know that the electric powered unit was the right choice for me (and my neighbors). As I was splitting, the wife came out and commented how quiet the motor is. The ram certainly makes noise, but I don’t have a gasoline engine blasting for an hour or two while I spilt. Because I live in town, noise is a concern – portability isn’t much of an issue. I didn’t have any problems with my electrical outlet, but I did use a heavy gauge extension cord. In short, I highly recommend the device I bought. It is going to save me a lot of time. Thanks DR!

I am quite pleased with my splitter, but I feel that it isn't quite as powerful as advertised. The logs I split have no knots and about 15inches long so it doesn't give it the true test. All said it is adequate for what I need it for.Log

Electric K22 with tow kit and cradles
Posted by: John S. from LAKE GROVE, NY on 04/03/2015
Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
I have rented hydraulic log splitters in the past in the 18 to 24 ton range. The compact size and lack of hydraulics really attracted me to this model. So far I have split about a 1/2 cord of Oak logs up to about 30" in diameter and some rally knarly base sections with irregular grain that i could not do with the rentals. This unit really works and it is fast. Some of the more irregular grain logs took two or three hits to get through. These were the logs that stalled the hydraulic unit. Pretty impressive machine and I love the electric motor, I was splitting logs in my garage in the rain - awesome! super quiet and I am yet to trip the motor's breaker. I give this machine high marks, just be careful towing i on a side slope, it is a little top heavy. My only critique is the the wheel base should be a little wider for better stability. I still give it 5 stars

Premier K22 Model, Electric Powered
Posted by: Bruce B. from Chichester, NY on 11/17/2014
Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
My son and I split the purchase of this electric powered K22 splitter. The splitter is fast. We cut up a variety of wood such as Ash, Poplar, Maple, Apple, and Elm. The Elm was stubborn and did not split easily. Elm can be a challenge for any splitter and the K22 was no exception. This splitter is much handier than a gas splitter for so many reasons. No effort to setting it up within a few minutes making it available at times I might not want to drag out a large hydraulic gas splitter. I don't think I would use this electric model for a commercial fire wood application, but for my home this splitter is more than I would ever need. As I mentioned earlier, this splitter is fast and efficient. I highly recommend this electric model K22 to anyone how is splitting their own firewood.

A little dissapointed in the motor
Posted by: Jeff T. from HENDERSONVILLE, TN on 10/08/2014
Rating: Product Review Stars: 3.00 star rating
I just received my rapid fire electric log splitter. Works good except the electric motor is too small. When I am splitting a larger log, it tends to trip the breaker on the motor a lot. Perfect for very small logs but I don't believe it matches a 22 ton unit it is supposed to be equivalent to. I wish I had gotten the gas powered unit. Unfortunately a paid a little more and got less it would seam. I hope DR will address this issue because I believe if they would increase the size of the motor, it would be a great product
Response from DR SupportTo ensure peak performance, your all electric DR® Rapid Fire log splitter should be used as close to your primary power source as possible. We recommend that your log splitter be no more than 50 feet away from the power source. Please note that if the power source is a remote location, such as a shed or barn that doesn't have its own breaker box, the distance of the outbuilding to the main power source should be considered as well. Additionally we recommend a heavy duty extension cord for use with your all-electric DR® Rapid Fire log splitter. For distances up to 25 feet we recommend a 12 gauge extension cord. And for distance up to 50 feet we recommend a 10 gauge extension cord. See both of these extension cords on our website at www.drpower.com and you can find them on the log splitter accessories page. Please contact us at 1-800-376-9637 if you would like to discuss your concern with one of our Technical Support Representatives. We appreciate your feedback and want you to be satisfied with your log splitter. Thank you for your business.

first experiance with K22 electric model rapidfire
Posted by: John D. from coopersburg, PA on 09/18/2014
Rating: Product Review Stars: 1.00 star rating
I am very sad to say how disappointed I am in this new log splitter after i took it out of the crate and tried it out for a bit. I tried it on wood that has been drying for about 1.5 months in 17 inch lengths. The largest I tried to split was about 20 inches in diameter. The splitter has a difficult time splitting some moderate sized logs like 15 inches in diameter. Many initial splits required several blows to try to bust the log apart. If the ram does not complete its stroke and gets caught half way, the electric motor overloads easily and has to be powered down and reset (not to time consuming, but as often as it happens it is very inconvenient). I bought this because of everything that I read and watched about the bigger brother and I was able to negotiate this price tag. I am very disappointed in its performance and plan to return it and go buy a 20 ton hydraulic with a 4 way splitter. This splitter is too light duty. I recommend saving your time and money for a different option.
Response from DR SupportThank you for your feedback on the DR Rapid Fire Wood Splitter. We are sorry that there have been problems and we are going to have someone from our Tech Support Department give you a call - you can expect to hear from us in a day or two. We welcome all of our customer's comments and want you to know how much we appreciate your business.

Q.Will this equipment split elm and juniper (cedar) logs ?
A.Our RapidFire splitters are very powerful machines. They are capable of splitting any hard or soft woods within their splitting capacity. On the electric model it is 18" in length for a max. If the wood is knotty or rough, it may require an additional run through the splitter. However, with a 2.5 second cycle time, it would still get the job done fast.

Thank you for your inquiry. fc

Q.What is the horse power rating of the motor on the K22 electric wood splitter?
A.The Premier Electric Log Splitter has a .5HP electric motor. The 115 volt 3.1 amp motor has a thermal breaker for overload protection.

This compact log splitter can propel the hardened steel ram forward and blast through logs up to 18" long. We recommend a good extension cord for maximum power and effective splitting.

Q.I've looked at electric/hydraulic splitters and they have a low temperature operating limit of about 40 degrees. Does this have any temperature restrictions? Also if I pick it up at the factory store, will it be assembled or in a crate?
A.The only temperature restrictions would be on the engine oil & the battery. You would want to switch to a lighter weight oil. Please refer to the engine manufacturers manual fro recommendations. As for the battery, you don't want to let it freeze.

Give us a call if you have any other questions.

Q.when shipped is it assembled? can it be rolled down ramps to unload it off of the truck?
A.The K22 comes almost fully assembled. You will need to attach the tray and leg support, that's it! The wood splitter will be on a pallet and in a crate. The wheels are already attached, so after delivery, you can uncrate it and roll it out of the bed of your pick up truck. However, if you are having this delivered directly to your home, you will not be able to uncrate it in their truck. We have lift-gate options available or you can take it off, in the crate yourself.
