The Determining Factor for which Log Splitter You actually Get


Whether you are a carpenter, builder, or have a fire place, chopping wood can become a tedious and exhausting job really fast. A log splitter is operated by using a hydraulic piston that puts the wood through either a steel blade or rotating cone-type mandrel that hoists the log over a wedge. If you are interested in purchasing a diesel log splitter, you probably have more than your fair share of chopping wood to do on a regular basis. However, it is important to know whether you plan on cutting wood for personal use only or if you plan to chop enough wood that warrants running a business. This may be the determining factor for which splitter you actually get. There are numerous options for diesel log splitters for sale, so it is important to know specifics while shopping around on the market.

It should be noted that splitters can run off both petrol or diesel. While petrol powered splitters are much more common that diesel ones, you should know that diesel options are always cheaper to operate in the long run and last much longer too. While they may be more difficult to start, once you get educated and in the routine of using a diesel splitter, you can be sure that you will be happy that you went with the diesel option instead. When considering a diesel log splitter, there are numerous options available for customers in search of the right fit. It is advised that the shopper begin a general search on the internet to determine what is actually available on the market and where their price point actually falls. While there are large equipment stores that are available for shoppers to go to, scoping out the field before going to a store will help you understand your options a lot better.

When researching what splitters are for sale, it is important to consider how thick the logs are that you are cutting and what type of wood you are going to be primarily chopping. If you are cutting logs that are 200mm in diameter, you are going to be fine buying a 6-ton splitter. But, if you are cutting 600mm pieces of wood, you are going to need a much bigger piece of equipment. It is also important to know if you will be chopping wood that is green or seasoned. Green wood doesn’t have all of the moisture evaporated from it, so it is much denser than season wood that has had the chance to expel its inner moisture. If you are chopping wood that is both thick in diameter and is green, you really have to make sure you have a splitter that can get the job done properly without buckling under pressure.

Knowing what splitters are best is always going to be a source of anxiety since splitters can be pretty costly. But by understanding what is for sale, you are going to be able to save yourself a lot of headaches in the future!
