What is a log splitter?

Updated: Dec 23, 2020

A log splitter is a piece of equipment used for splitting firewood from softwood or hardwood logs that have been pre-cut into segments (rounds), generally by chainsaw or on a saw bench or pto saw benches for logs. Many a log splitter for sale consist of a hydraulic or electrical rod and piston assembly and those are often ranked by the tons of force they can generate. The higher the force rating of the log splitter, the higher the thickness or length of the rounds that can be split. The hydraulic log splitter consists of all four major hydraulic elements.

Many log splitter models for home use have a rating around 10 tons, but professional hydraulic log splitter models may exercise 30 tons of force or more. There are also hand-operated log splitters, which use mechanical advantage to force logs through a sharpened blade construction; and screw or 'corkscrew' compact tractor attachments that are driven directly from an agricultural tractor's PTO shaft where the splitter is fitted to the three-point linkage of the compact tractor.
