Brilliant machine. It slices through red gum, messmate, iron bark and blood wood with ease. If the log is to big or dense, chop it back from the outside in then drive up the centre for the final split.
Another great feature is the overload cutoff. If the machine struggles chopping through knotted or branching sections it’ll turn off. Just press the reset switch, reposition the log and go again.
I am really happy with this products. It saves my dodgy shoulders and back... so much fun & it’s addictive too! Way better than the hydraulic machines!
This machine far exceeds my expectations.
Shoulder problems spelt the end of my firewood splitting with a maul so I was considering building a powered splitter when I saw this Masport Kinetic splitter at Bunnings for $499 and knowing Masport's great reputation I figured they would not put their name on an inferior product, so I bought it.
At just under 100kg in it's wooden crate it took some maneuvering but we got there in the end.
Once I'd unpacked it and began the small amount of assembly required I realised why it was so heavy.

Questions & Answers
Can you send me or tell me where I can get a full instruction for use of the 5 ton Kinetic wood splitter.
I purchase a new one from Bunnings in the last month and have not used it as yet.
My log splitter sometimes jams on a log. I have to give the splitter a belt to release it. Will this damage the unit?
It is generally when you are splitting a toughie, the log does not split first go and jams on the knife. Because it pushed so hard the anti slip projection on the front of the ram gets stuck in the back end of the log and the whole lot just jams up ( this is why it is important to have the belts correctly adjusted so as they can slip and not stall the motor). Solution... I took to the projection on the front of the ram with my angle grinder and almost completely removed it before the problem was alleviated. I works fine now without jamming up.
