Our horizontal splitters can ship on a pallet, or via partial flatbed / hotshot trucking.  If you have a freight terminal near you we can arrange freight to that location.  Or, if a semi truck can get to your address, we can arrange a shipment with liftgate service.  You could also pick up your new machine from the closest Wolfe Ridge dealer.  Check out our dealer locator.
Please note: 

  • If you have a machine shipped via partial flatbed or hotshot, you will need a piece of equipment for unloading.  Such as a forklift, tractor or skid steer with pallet forks and sufficient lifting capacity.

  1. Doug One Eye Customs

    I absolutely love the 28C, it is the perfect size for my wood yard and has all the power a person could need!
    Don’t forget the extension sorting table and the 6 way wedge.

  2. Matt Firewood On The Hill

    I love my 28C. This log splitters has a fast cycle time and plenty of power. The best part about the splitter is it’s in a small package but doesn’t sacrifice power or speed.

    I have the 35c with a 36” stroke. it’s ate everything I’ve fed it.

  5. Jon

    If you are doing this as a side business don’t be put off by the price. This machine will save you time and money in the long run. It’s worth every penny. The best part though is the customer you get. Chris gives customer service like they did 25 years ago. Even if you screw something up they will do everything they can to help you. I had an issue with my engine after a rain storm like no other. Emailed a few times with Chris and boom he helped me fix it. If you want old school customer service this is the place to get it. No I don’t have a YouTube channel or was given anything in return for this review. Wait I lied I was given great customer service that made me want to leave a review. Now go order your splitter.

  6. Rick’s Outdoors

    I have the Pro 28c. It is powerful and quick. I love the ability to change the wedges by hand in less than a minute unlike the other companies splitters. The Customer Service is 5 stars. I have owned a Wolfe Ridge for going on 5 years now. Best decision I ever maded.

  7. Chris Brown

    The 28C is the best option available on the market today for a one man operation. If you look at the competition, no one is offering the same level of performance for the price. The Small frame size allows for one person to work around the machine with ease, and the 13hp Honda motor coupled with a 22 gpm pump is the right balance of speed and fuel efficiency. If I’m really moving I can produce 1/3cord “facecord” of firewood in 15 minutes by myself. Don’t be fooled into paying more for a splitter that’s the size of a small processor, log cradles work nice splitting perfect wood on YouTube, but splitting real world tree service wood they hinder production. This splitter design allows you to get right next to the beam and easily resplit and position large and ugly pieces. If you need to tow a lot at highway speeds get the HO. If you have multiple people working the machine get an SHO or HDI. For one man this is all the performance you’re ever going to need.

  8. Joe Shamrock

    Absolute beast! I have the 35C with the table extension. I don’t sell firewood, just heat my shop with a wood stove. Some of my friends think it is overkill, but it is so much faster and fun to run than my old husky splitter. My time is valuable and I can easily split a winters worth of wood in a weekend. Plus, these things hold their value, used ones almost bring new prices. Go for it!

  9. Danny Clark

    I absolutely love my 35 ton compact commercial. Have only put 26 hours on it. It has been flawless. Thanks Wolfe ridge team for making a great machine.
