Forestwest 18Ton Log Splitter is upgraded with heavier and stronger flywheel system, generating more power to split hardwood, stronger stand and bigger wheels for high maneuverability. This is a more advanced model, which is also called Kinetic Log Splitter. It generates up to 18Ton splitting force powered by a 3HP 4-stroke petrol motor and is more efficient with only 2-3 seconds per split cycle, much faster than hydraulic ones. It requires little maintenance that only needs to keep it clean and lubricated.

This machine is up about waist high with a stand, so you don't need to bend over to do any splitting, and the front tray will catch all the split pieces ready for the next split. The recommended log size is 14” long and 14” round, while the max log size is 16” long and 16” round (this may vary for different types of wood). Perfect for domestic use.

Note for Petrol Engine: Adjust the speed of the engine to make sure the cycle time is around 2-3 seconds. It is recommended to try and split at a lower speed, and gradually increase the speed of the engine if necessary. Engine running too fast may cause extra wear to the gears inside.

18ton kinetic log splitter Features:

  • For kinetic log splitters, the average cycle time is about 2s to 3s, much more efficient than hydraulic models.

  • This petrol log splitter is more flexible with the petrol motor - no need to find a power point for operation.

  • This 18Ton log splitter can split firewood up to 16” long and 16” in diameter, suitable for most cases.

  • This splitter is on a stand to avoid bending for operation, easy to use. Large wheels make it easy to drag around.

  • Perfect for residential use or small rural areas. If you are tired of the slow motion of hydraulic splitters, this could be the right choice for you.

Small and powerful

I was sceptical but it even handled the 30cm knotted ones with a couple of extra blows. I had over 3t of wood to my o through and I was done under 3hrs.

18 ton petrol log splitter

This splitter is perfect for the type of hard wood I'm splitting. Plenty of power and the fuel efficiency is great. Great investment

Best value for money

Delivery was next day. It does need a bit of assembly before use and probably the only thing that is annoying is the very poor instructions. The engine is easy to start and i split a couple of tonne of yellow box with ease. A few curly grain bits had to have 2 goes to split them but that was with engine on half speed. I can鈥檛 imagine anything it couldn鈥檛 handle. It reloads in 2-3 seconds.


Great machine makes for quick and easy work
