Home Depot recommends that individuals interested in renting hydraulic log splitters should check local availability by using the store's website (HomeDepot.com) or calling their local stores, since not all Home Depot stores rent out such units. Home Depot rents out hand tools and machinery of professional quality.
On the log splitter rental page, a prospective renter enters a ZIP code or city and state into a search box. Address and phone numbers of local stores with log splitters appear. Successful searches display rental costs for different periods: four hours, one day, one week and four weeks. The required deposit is also noted.
