A log splitter is a bit of kit used for splitting firewood from softwood or hardwood logs which have been pre-cut into portions (rounds), ordinarily by chainsaw or on a saw bench or pto saw benches for logs. A log splitter for sale consists of an electrical or hydraulic rod and cylinder construction and those are often classified by the tons of force they can create. The more powerful the force rating of the log splitter, the more formidable the thickness or length of the rounds that can be cut. The hydraulic log splitter consists of four main hydraulic elements.
Many log splitter designs for home use have a number around 10 tons, but professional hydraulic log splitter models may handle 30 tons of force or higher. There are also hand worked log splitters, which use mechanical power to force logs through a sharpened edge construction; and spiral or 'corkscrew' compact tractor attachments that are operated directly from a compact tractor's PTO shaft where the log splitter is attached to the 3-point linkage of the compact tractor.
