Log Splitters

Electric, Petrol, Diesel, Hydraulic wood splitters

All of our log splitters have hydraulic rams which do the hard work. This means that they are all classified as Hydraulic Log Splitters.
The main difference between each type is what provides power to the hydraulic pump. For log splitters the pump is driven by either an electric motor or a fuel combustion engine such as petrol or diesel (where higher power is required).

Before you buy - Buyers guide:

Here are a few things to consider before purchasing a log splitter to help you make the right choice...

Electric Hydraulic Log Splitters:

These are the ideal solution for home and small rural properties. Electric-hydraulic offers great performance and enough power for most firewood and kindling with splitting forces from 7 ton up to 12 ton at the ram.
Pros:The Electric-hydraulic solution would be perfect for locations where 240v power is available. Electric is also suitable for indoor use as they produce no fumes or exhaust and run relatively quietly. They are also suitable for outdoor use in dry weather.
Cons: Electric splitters should not be used outdoors during any poor weather conditions. Often not suitable for massive logs or hard wood such as redgum.

Petrol Hydraulic Log Splitters:

These more powerful splitters offer a higher level of splitting force, from 15 ton up to 60 ton, so they are ideal for larger splitting jobs including light commercial work and rural property work. Petrol splitters offer greater versatility over electric
Pros: Can be used anywhere outdoors without the need for electric power, and in poorer weather conditions where it would be unsafe to use electricity.
Cons: Because petrol splitters emit exhaust they should not be used indoors or in confined spaces. Because they run a combustion engine they are a little noisier than electric.

Diesel Hydraulic Log Splitters:

Like the 60 ton petrol, the diesel splitters are ideal for heavy workloads and long working hours. The huge force available will cut through the toughest of logs and can be operated either horizontally or vertically, saving you the back-breaking work of lifting logs off the ground.
The pros and cons are the same as for petrol but diesel is better suited for properties where diesel may be a more readily available fuel source on hand.
