Push off splitter cuts log with crosswise blade"We think it's the best log splitter in the world and the easiest to use," says Wayne Davis about the new 3-pt. mounted Stanley Logger that uses a powerful guillotine blade to cut logs crosswise and has a push-off splitting wedge that pushes split wood up an unloading ramp as it splits.
One man can operate the new splitter. The entire log is laid on the cutting table and it's cut into chunks up to 42 in. long for splitting. Davis says using a wedge-type blade to cut through logs rather than a chain or buzz saw eliminates sawdust and in-creases the amount of split wood by about 2.5%.
The crosswise cutting wedge, which is powered by a big 4-in. cylinder, can slice through logs up to 10 in. in dia. Once cut, the log chunk is rolled onto the splitting table. A ram pushes it up against the splitting wedge, and on up the unloading ramp that can be positioned to dump into a trailer or pickup box.
The 3-pt. model sells for about $4,000. Stationary self-contained models are also available.
