First Electric Log Splitters Introduced
"It always starts and will outlast about six gas engines," says Bachtold Brothers Mfg. of the company's 1 hp. heavy-duty electric motor that powers their new Model HE-26 log splitter.
Available with small wheels for around the farm portability, or larger 4.80 by 8 in. pneumatic tires for towing down the road behind a pickup or car, it's equipped with a 2,500 psi two-stage Power Pak which provides 12 tons of splitting force.
The electric splitter handles logs of any diameter up to 25 1/2 in. long. The
Power Pak hydraulic unit can be removed and used in the farm shop on a hoist or press. The ram of the 3 1/2 in. by 24 in. cylinder cycles out in 9 sec., and back in 7 sec.
Sells for $840, including the heavy duty 1 hp electric motor and 10 in. by 2.75 by 5/8 in. semi pneumatic wheels and tires. Over the road pneumatic wheels and tires are $191 extra.
