We spent 24 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top selections for this wiki. Cutting up wood doesn't have to be sweaty, back-breaking work. With one of these gas log splitters, you can power through hundreds of felled trees without ever having to lift an ax. Most can be towed behind your vehicle for easy transport between locations, and some are capable of both horizontal and vertical use. All of them are strong enough to handle dense hardwoods. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best gas log splitter on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

October 29, 2018:

Our goal was to provide a number of high-quality, long-lasting gas log splitters in a variety of sizes and capacities. Because of this we included some low-power, budget-friendly models that are perfect for the home users who only splits logs periodically, as well as some heavy-duty options capable of producing 100,000 thousand pounds of crushing force.

He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
