Log splitters can be great labour saving power tools that make cutting whole logs much faster and easier. If you are considering buying a log splitter, there are a number of specifications and preliminary considerations that you should keep in mind.
The length capacity is the maximum log length the log splitter is capable of accepting. Often the maximum length is around 2 feet, but smaller log splitters will not be able to split logs of this length, so make sure to check this specification out and suit it to the length of your wood before making a purchase. Go out to your wood pile and take some measurements before visiting whatever retailer, online or off, you are considering buying the splitter from.
As with any power tool, considerations of overall power come into play. You need to get a sense of how much power a splitter has and make your purchase accordingly. Often as regards splitters, power is measured in either tonnage, though it also may be measured in horsepower. The splitter may have power that ranges from around 4 to 30 tons of force. This describes how much pressure the splitter is capable of exerting on logs. The lower tonnages are capable of splitting logs that are thinner and dryer, while higher tonnage ratings make the splitter capable of splitting logs of larger diameter and that have more moisture.
The cycle time describes the length of time needed for a splitter to go from its initial position to the final one. This is the complete “cycle” of the splitter. Unless you need to split very large quantities of wood, in which case you will want a splitter of a shorter cycle, you should consider the cycle time a relatively incidental factor.
Should you buy a Horizontal or Vertical Splitter?
In some splitters the user places the wood horizontally, while in others they place it vertically. In some splitters the machine can work either way. Keep in mind that horizontal splitters require less effort for an individual to hoist logs into place. They are thus better suited to larger jobs with heavier logs. Vertically oriented splitters can be fine if the logs are not too heavy and may make the logs being split less prone to falling out.
If you plan to use the splitter in some area other than your backyard, basement, shop, or garage, you should consider portability issues. One factor here is whether or not the splitter has a ball hitch which will allow it to be towed behind a car or truck.
Another issue here is the size of the wheels. If you need to tow the splitter down a highway, highway grade wheels are necessary. Smaller wheels are fine for suburban streets, country roads, and so on. Make sure to check with the manufacturer or retailer as to the wheel size and its road usage considerations.
Take all these factors into consideration when looking at a power tool of this type. Splitting logs can be greatly facilitated by a splitter, but it is important to get the right splitter for your specific situations and requirements. Get the right splitter the first time by knowing what you are looking for.
