Log Splitter Design

Updated: Oct 12, 2020

A tractor mounted log splitter incorporates a support structure having a first end, a secondary end, and an open centre portion surrounded therebetween, a splitting tool slidably coupled to the supporter structure and a drive device for driving movement of the splitting machine through a splitting region. The log splitter for sale splitting mechanism comprises an elongate beam possessing an outer surface, a first end, a second terminal, and an open middle portion between the first end and the second point, and a splitting wedge coupled to the exterior surface of the elongate shaft and having at least a splitting surface formed thereon. The log splitter UK elongate beam is arranged within the open center portion of the support construction. The drive mechanism is placed within the open centre part of the elongate beam and is joined on a first end to the first end of the supporter structure and on a another end to the second end of the elongate shaft of the log splitter.

The present device relates in common to a log splitter for sale. More particularly, the present design relates to a compact log splitter begetting a splitting wedge coupled to a beam, wherever the beam has a drive mechanism placed therein.

Log splitting processes have been in use for decades. Conventional log splitters typically involve a stationary support frame configured to carry a hydraulic cylinder and a collaborating splitting wedge. Generally speaking, splitting of timber occurs by making the splitting wedge to be forced into the wood, using the power of the hydraulic cylinder. In a fixed wedge variant, the splitting wedge is fixed to the aiding frame, and the log is forced into the splitting spearhead. In use, a log is installed in the appropriate position and is vigorously pushed against the motionless splitting wedge by force generated when the hydraulic cylinder is increased. This necessitates movement or sliding of the log to create the desired split. This required action necessarily requires that this type of splitter be placed in a horizontal manner to allow space for the log to push past the wedge. In an alternative variant, the splitting wedge is connected to the hydraulic cylinder, which is typically connected to the support frame. In this variety of design, the log is held in place by some stop, thus enabling the force of the hydraulic cylinder to push the splitting wedge through the wood.
