Log Splitter is an important auxiliary equipment for the wood chip processing industry, mainly vertical and horizontal series. Its function is to use the hydraulic working principle of the tree pier, large tree branches, large round wood section and hard wood split, in order to achieve the requirements of chipper feed size, or raw materials split into other uses of materials. General stroke specifications are 1000 mm, 1100 mm, 1200 mm, nominal pressure of 30 tons, 35 tons, 50 tons and so on several to horizontal machine use more convenient, and according to user needs for the traction mobile machine.
There are three log splitters.
Manual firewood splitters are the most inexpensive models while electric log cutters are priced in the middle and gas wood splitters are the most expensive option of the three types.One of the primary advantages of a manual splitter is the cost; with these firewood splitters being the most affordable models.
Electric firewood cutters are a popular option for many people because they allow you to use these models indoors due to the lack of harmful fumes which are not released. This is a primary advantage over gas splitters while still providing large amounts of splitting capacity in comparison to manual splitters. Another advantage to an electric splitter is that you can operate this machine on a standard 120 volt outlet which is grounded in order to prevent an overload of the electrical circuit. These type of log splitters are more affordably priced than gas powered log splitters and are also lighter and more portable then most gas powered models.
Gas Powered firewood processors are the most expensive option; yet they are also the most powerful option providing up to 38 tons of splitting capacity making them the best option for consumers who have large and knotty logs to split.
