Portable splitter splits logs on ground
You can split huge, heavy logs right on the ground with the new portable splitter from HWH Corp., Moscow, Iowa.
The new-style splitter rolls on pneumatic tires and can be taken to the logs, rather than having to haul heavy logs to the splitter. Splits logs up to 26 in. long.
The splitting jaw can be raised and lowered, and rotated right or left 180?, to split logs of any diameter as they lay on the ground. One hydraulic lever controls opening and closing of the jaw and a second lever controls the jaw's 12 in. height adjustment. Right or left tilt of the splitting jaw is done manually, with a friction clamp holding the unit in position at the desired angle for each bite.
A remote hydraulic pump, driven by a 5 hp engine, provides the hydraulic power. The fast-operating splitting knives close in 14 seconds, then reopen to full width (26 in.) for the next bite in only 3 seconds. Cutting force of the 7 in. long replaceable knives is 13 tons at 2,500 psi.
The portable splitter, with remote hydraulic pump and 5 hp. engine, sells for $1,600. A 3 pt. hitch model, which operates off the tractor's hydraulics, sells for $880.
