The hydraulic pump is driven by a very robust, high-quality 6.5 hp Kohler gasoline engine or a powerful electric motor (400V, 2.2 kW). You can freely choose between electric drive or gasoline drive..
In the course of our product improvement this log splitter has been continuously optimised. In this way the current versions have several notable advantages compared to previous models... e.g. direct operation at the cylinder has been made much easier through improving accessibility in the vertical operating position. Furthermore, many flexible lines have been replaced by fixed, mounted metal tubing, which makes the device look much less cumbersome and more professional. Last but not least, the wheels are ball bearing mounted; this guarantees significantly quieter mobility. The latest highlight, however, is the possible combination operation! That is, you operate the splitter either with the 6.5 hp gasoline engine or the electric motor. Depending on the place of use, you are thus ready for action accordingly.
In our log splitters, the splitting force is measured directly at the splitting wedge so that this value corresponds to the actual fitting splitting force. Many other sellers give unrealistic values here, such that are never achieved in practice.
The same is also the case for the log length; we give the actual, real value of 110 cm that a piece of wood may be long. Our competitors give lengths from which you still have to subtract the length of the splitting wedge, which is very confusing. You should also take note of the cylinder piston stroke. For our model, this measures 100 cm, the splitting wedge runs almost completely through the wood; in doing so, successful wood splitting is guaranteed! In the majority of splitters of this size the cylinder piston stroke only measures 50-60 cm, which has the consequence that the wedge only runs through half of the wood, and you have the danger, that you have to “free” the piece being split with an axe or chain saw from the wedge.
This splitter will split every piece of wood, guaranteed, and will not surrender to any log.
The log splitter is easy to operate. You can start the engine simply by pulling the recoil starter cord, and it even starts well in below freezing temperatures. For the electric motor you only need a suitable cable and power connection.
You can transport the device easily using the existing tow hook and towing assembly. The device is not, however, approved for road traffic, i.e. you are not allowed to tow it behind a passenger car on public roads. Alternatively, of course, you can put the log splitter onto a trailer using a ramp.
Along with the splitter we deliver a free of charge 4-way wedge, which can be simply pushed over the splitting wedge. You can change between wedges in a matter of seconds!
Using the 30 cm long splitting wedge or 4-way wedge you can also split logs of a larger diameter in one cycle. This often does not work with shorter splitting wedges and the log must often be rotated 180 degrees, which costs time and effort.
The hydraulics have been made in such a way that the splitting wedge can be held in all positions and can be moved forwards or backwards as desired. The force always remains the same and the splitting wedge, unlike many competing products, does not have to return to the starting position.
We have been selling these devices for many years, and they have been tried and tested by hundreds of customers. This log splitter will not fail on any piece of wood; no customer has ever been able to bring us a piece of wood which this log splitter could not split.
Compare our machines with competing products! You won’t find anything comparable. We didn’t only develop these devices ourselves, but also offer excellent service (master technicians workshop) and spare parts. We have almost every part in stock. In the event of questions or problems we are only a phone call away. With us you speak with knowledgeable staff and not with “call-centre agents”!
We have almost all of our products assembled and ready for operation in our exhibition halls. We would love for you to come by to test them!

The device is delivered well packed and part-assembled in a wooden crate. You should allow approx. 2-3 hours for final assembly. Step by step assembly instructions as well as several exploded-view drawings are part of the manual that comes with your log splitter. Assembly is not difficult. However, in the event that you require any assistance, we are happy to help you. Required components for conversion and operation in gasoline or electric mode are included in the scope of delivery. You will need approx. 20 litres of hydraulic oil to make the device ready before use. A hydraulic oil of classification HLP46 would be ideal and is widely available. In addition you will also need approx. 1 litre of engine oil for the engine. For this purpose we recommend multi-grade oil of classification 10W40 or 15W40.
