Woodstar IH45 37cm Log Splitter 1500W
Solid little performer
Saw something similar on Youtube so my wonderful wife picked one up for my birthday. Arrived with a cracked switch plate but a call to the UK service centre had a replacement plate in the post the next day, no problems at all. Just tried it with some old, knotty, oversized beech and it did really well, going through most of the 20 inch long 20+ inch wide logs with no problems. The rest I will need to saw down to 10 inch long and I think it will split them no problem. If you stick with the log sizes suggested you'll have no problem! When using it you would do well to stand back a bit as knotty wood seemed to split with a bit of a bang, some jumped a good foot quite quickly!

Unable to Chop some wood
Disappointed as I have logs it won't split. It worked fine on less dense logs.
I spoke to the company who were helpful but stated if it didn't chop, you need the more powerful machine. On reflection I wish I had paid more as this is limited.

Ordered this product after reading a number of favorable reviews on the Screwfix website.
The product I have received is Scheppach HL450 as the supplier has run out of Woodstar.
The supplier informed me that this item is made by the same German company.
It is identical to Woodstar with exactly the same features.
Received the item yesterday and so far so good, early days.
Happy with the little use I have had so far.

Early days yet but it works just fine. Just remember the bleed screw. This has to be turned a few threads before it will work efficiently.
Only one gripe, strictly speaking not Screwfix's fault. The packageing was damaged quite badly
On arrival. However upon inspection the machine was unscathed.
