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
