Home Depot carries a couple of nice log splitters by brands such as Cub Cadet, Yard Machines & Ryobi. If you're cutting, prepping and splitting your own logs for firewood, then you can save a lot of time and energy with a log splitter, and these models are sturdy, well made and built for lots of consistent use.
Cub Cadet log splitters feature large capacity design and come with heavy duty engineering. Some of the Yard Machine log splitters also double as shredders and they can also handle a large capacity. If you use wood to heat up your house for example and you need to split a lot of wood, then one of these machines can really make the job go a lot easier. To split firewood manually can be quite the big job: it does provide nice exerice, however if you have a lot of wood to go then it can be very challenging. Buying a log splitter can be quite a lifesaver, especially if you don't want to devote all your spare time and energy towards splitting and chopping wood. It can definitely be a good idea to buy a log splitter that also can double as a shredder if you want to shred some of your wood (perfect as mulch or in the garden for instance.)
Another option if you don't want to buy one of these machines would be to rent one for a day or two. Then you can get a lot of chopping done at one time and you don't have to worry about storing such a machine. However if you frequently want to use it, then actually buying one could be a better choice. Either way, Home Depot (or some other home improvement or hardware store) would be worth a visit since they tend to have a nice selection of products and a knowledgeable staff.
Cub Cadet 160 CC, 27-Ton Log Splitter
"What does our 25 In. log capacity mean for you? You can spend less time prepping logs and more time splitting them. But a larger capacity is just one of the many features built into our premium log splitters. There's higher pressure, more horsepower and larger-capacity tanks. Plus, heavy-duty engineering that's as smart as it is reliable"
