The log splitter parts can be sized to suit portable petrol engine units, tractor PTO set-ups and electric motors. When designing your log splitter take into consideration the throughput you would like to achieve. The more horsepower you have, the faster you will be able to split the wood. Don't be fooled by firms advertising massive tonnages of cutting force. You could achieve this with a tiny 1 HP motor. However the cylinder would have to be huge, the pump small and it would take you all day to split a few pieces!
A 5 HP petrol unit can be suited for use with Briggs and Stratton, Honda or Tecumseh type engines. A Bucher Hi-Low (2-stage) hydraulic pump that is designed to use the available horsepower in the most efficient manner with a fast approach at low pressure, and a slower splitting action at high pressure. In conjunction with the Bucher pump is a Brand log-splitting control valve that has a built in return function that allows the cylinder to return while the operator loads the next log.
The kit includes: Hi-Low pump, log splitter valve, cylinder, return line filter, filler / breather, and a temperature / level gauge, (we also stock oil tanks). For pricing on the cylinders and engines please call us on 1800 497 732 and talk with a sales engineer or email us.

• At 3000 RPM and 3000 PSI this system will give approx 9 tons of cutting force
• The low pressure cylinder extension time = approx 4 seconds
• The high pressure cylinder extension time = approx 8 seconds / 10 inches
• The cylinder retraction time = approx 3 seconds
