Kinetic splitters consume less fuel than hydraulic splitters because the power requirements on the engine are less.
No hydraulic fluid, cylinders, pumps, hoses, fittings, or filters eliminates hydraulic leaks and maintenance.
The precision wedge splits clean, creating less wood-waste debris.
How It Works
Precision balanced, 70 pound flywheels spin at 325 RPMs to create and store kinetic energy.
As the flywheels turn, the pinion gear spins on the same shaft. When the control handle moves forward, the rack presses onto the pinion gear.
The rack and push plate power forward at high speed, pushing the log through the wedge. This burst of energy adds high speed to the splitting action versus a much slower 20 to 40 ton hydraulic log splitter. As a result, most logs are split in 2 or 3 seconds instead of more than 13 seconds with a hydraulic splitter.
