Splitter Mounts On Compact Tractor
With its new bolt-on pto kit, Split-Fire makes it possible to split wood with tractors as small as 18 hp.

    “Customers wanted to use compact tractors as their power source when splitting, but many of these tractors do not have an adequate hydraulic system,” says Kyle Kirktown, sales manager.

    Split-Fire’s bolt-on kit is compatible with its entire line of 3-pt. hitch models. The most popular is the 3203, rated at 20-ton splitting force. The kit and splitter costs about $2,600 (U.S.).

    The Norwich, Ont., company has been manufacturing wood splitters since 1984, with a 2-way split design. The innovative “V” shaped log “stops” force wood to fold around them, relieving pressure. Split-Fire is also known for its low frictionless slider system with Ultra-High-Molecular-Weight polyethylene slide pads that resist abrasion and prevent wear.

    In addition to 3-point hitch models, Split-Fire offers a range of self-contained and skidsteer splitters. They even have splitters that mount on backhoes.

    Split-Fire offers a no-questions-asked full 1-year warranty and has distributors in Canada and the U.S.
