Today we are looking at the slightly smaller, but still powerful Feider FBE-8T100 8-Ton Electric Log-Splitter. Yesterday we looked at the larger Feider FBT-10T100 10-Ton Petrol Log Splitter, which is currently on special offer.
We are currently offering the Feider FBE-8T100 8-Ton Electric Log Splitter for £699 which at the time of writing is a £70 saving. This eight-ton machine is one of the most powerful electric log splitters that will prove invaluable if you are running a log burner.
I personally prefer petrol or diesel equipment, however, I have to admit that there are advantages of electric-powered equipment. Especially if you are using the wood splitter in an outbuilding, there are no fumes or noise to contend with.
This product arrives boxed, however, the machine does require assembly.

- Makes light work of log splitting.

Powerful Electric Log Splitter
The powerful Feider FBE-8T100 8-Ton Log-Splitter is one of the most powerful splitters on the market designed for domestic use. Feider is a brand that seems to be growing greatly in popularity over the last few years due to their products offering excellent value for money.
With a 3000 W electric motor that equates to just over 4 hp each has plenty of power to cope with the toughest and most difficult logs. The powerful electric motor in turn enables eight tons of hydraulic pressure to be forced onto the logs.
I have always liked the simplicity of hydraulic power. Hydraulics power offers a very simple solution to power equipment. Over the years, having owned many machines which have been hydraulically powered, I have had minimal issues.
The hydraulic system on the Feider FBE-8T100 8-Ton Splitter is very simple indeed. Basically, there is a 4 hp electric motor that powers a hydraulic pump, which in turn forces oil through the hydraulic ram. This, in turn, enables the wood splitter to slice through logs with ease. The hydraulic ram is what we call a double acting ram, which means the hydraulic ram has the power to go up and down.
How Much Can The Log Splitter Handle?
Although the Feider FBE-8T100 8-Ton Log-Splitter is slightly less powerful than the petrol equivalent that we looked at yesterday. It still has the capability to deal with the same size logs. The maximum log length which can be split is 106 cm and the maximum diameter is 40 cm. This is more than adequate for the average homeowner.
Fortunately, the Feider FBE-8T100 8-Ton Electric Log-Splitter comes with a pair of 200 mm transport wheels which helps to make moving the wood splitter easy. This is ideal if you want to move the electric log splitter to various sites around your garden. Just make sure that you have enough electric cable to reach the machine.
The Feider FBE-8T100 8-Ton Electric Log-Splitter is a heavy duty wood splitter that offers quiet splitting. Although slightly less powerful than the petrol version that we looked at yesterday, it still has a great capacity for splitting wood. Of course, although I prefer a petrol machine, this electric log splitter is considerably cheaper than the petrol model and offers quiet power.
With a two-year standard warranty and an optional five-year warranty, the Feider FBE-8T100 8-Ton Electric Log-Splitter is definitely worth looking at.
