Log Splitters82 offers*
If you only want to split blocks of wood with a relatively short length into logs for your fireplace, a pressure of six tons is absolutely sufficient. For hardwoods it may be a little more.
Devices with more than twelve tons are real powerhouses that are suitable for professional forestry work.
The exact quantity varies from model to model. Exact litre specifications as well as information on the specification of the suitable oil can be found in the manufacturer's specifications of the respective device.
Another indispensable feature is an electrical start-up safety device. This prevents the machine from starting unintentionally when the current flows again after an interruption in the circuit.
Other important safety features are the following:
Safety emergency switch: when pressed, the log splitter stops immediately.
Hose covers: These prevent oil from leaking from the hydraulic lines.
Overload valve: It reduces the pressure when the splitting wedge hits material that is too hard, thus protecting the motor from damage.
