All the 30, 40 & 50 ton modela come as stadard on a solid axle, towing eye, 2-4 way knife with hydraulic height control and an adjustable leg at the knife end.
Truly versatile log splitters for splitting larger lengths & diameters of timber or for splitting a row of ‘rings’. Power options are electric, petrol, diesel, Tractor PTO or Tractor hydraulics. Horizontal log splitters are ideal if you have large diameter timber that is too heavy to lift and position vertically.
The wood is pushed through the 2 or 4 way knife, so ideal for Billeting long timber. The splitter can be used on the ground or held in the air on the tractors linkage or we can supply the splitter on legs so split timber is pushed through the knife onto a table or falls straight into a bag or box.
On some models it is possible to add a 6-way or 8-way knife but remember this greatly reduces the splitting force. Thin along these lines. To split a 30" diameter piece of timber in half you need the splitting knife to be at least 30" high. 30 ton splitting force with a 30" knife means 1 ton per inch of knife. a 4-way knife means 60" of knife so reduces the force to 1/2 a ton per inch of blade. A 6-way knife means 1/3 ton per inch of knife. An 8-way knife means 1/4 ton per inch of blade. Even with a 60 ton spitting force and 30" diameter timber a 4 way knife would mean 1 ton of force per inch of knife. It can be quite surprizing what even a 30 ton splitter will split in half, but remember the harder the timber and the more knots / twists there are then the more likely it is that you will be disappointed! A big horizontal log splitter will not necessarily solve your ‘large timber’ problems.
