I'm looking to buy my first splitter, and finding conflicting information about how big of a splitter I need. I would very strongly prefer something electric (I've completely managed to avoid small engines around the homestead so far), but only if it will actually split the logs I have. I was looking at the Boss Industrial 7 ton (the 10 ton seems perpetually out-of-stock), and I'm hoping to split primarily oak and hickory, up to about 14" in diameter (though mostly smaller) and no more than 16" in length. The logs are all pretty straight - very few knots or anything in them. I rented a splitter last year that had no trouble, but it was a 22 ton gas version, so I'm not sure that that tells me much. Folks who've used an electric splitter - is this plausible? Is the Boss Industrial a decent option?
