What is a Wood Splitter Machine?

A wood splitter, a kind of firewood processor, forestry machinery, is mainly used to split large logs into smaller, more usable lumber. The wood splitter is a powerful equipment for splitting firewood. It has a wide range of applications. The log splitter can be used as an important material preparation machine for papermaking, the wood-based panel industry, wood pulp processing, and other industries. This equipment can split the wood with too large diameter, too long length and special shape which is not conducive to processing.

The wood splitter machine made by YG Machinery is composed of a cradle to hold the log, a hydraulic ram powered by a pump, and a splitting blade.

It is a special product for cracking large tree roots and irregular thick branches. It is suitable for density board factories, wood-based board factories, papermaking, biological power plants, etc.
  5. Kinetic wood splitter: Kinetic splitters use massive flywheels to convert energy from a motor or engine into a burst of force. If you’re looking for commercial wood splitter, then a kinetic log splitter will definitely save you time and money in the long run.

How to choose a wood splitter?

First, the horsepower of the log splitter engine is a major factor.

Secondly, where do you want to use the wood splitter? If you need this machine for your small garden, then a small electric log splitter maybe is enough for you.

Third, cost. If you do not have too much budget, the cheap manual and conventional electric splitters are suitable for you. The price of gas-powered models is a little high. And the kinetic wood splitters are the most expensive.

Finally, you should think about maintenance. The manual and electric splitters do require little maintenance. But gas-powered splitter engines need some more maintenance than the electric type. And all types of wood splitters need periodic lubrication and servicing of the hydraulic system.
