World's Best Log Splitter
"It's the best log splitter in the world," says the manufacturer of the just-introduced Barracuda from Italy. With one big jaw exerting 25 tons of pressure, the new splitter will split wood of any size even large stumps and can cut through lengthwise or crosswise.
"Most splitters don't have the power to cut wood crosswise but, because of the unique design and the tremendous power exerted by the positioning of the one large cylinder on this machine, it'll cut through wood even up to 3 to 4 ft. in dia. no matter how the log lies on the splitter cutting table. And, it'll even cut up stumps, which ordinarily are next to impossible to handle," says Mario Cecolin, inventor of the new splitter.
The splitter is self-contained with its own hydraulic power, requiring only the pto power of a 25 hp. or bigger tractor. The cutting table of the saw is 48 in. long. The saw blade takes 5 sec. to make its downward cut and 3 sec. on the return. Cecolin says the design of the pivot on the splitting jaw is the key to its tremendous power.
Sells for about $1,400 in Italy.
