Fastest splitter costing over £ 1500

Recommended Posts

Mate sent me this video recently.....
crazy contraption but it certainly gets through some knotty lumps.
I’d love to see the risk assessment for it......

You would be needing a big old motor. Our 55hp tractor stalls with tough wood on eco. So an equivalent power is 41kw motor Say electric at 15 p per kWh (don't know what 3 phase costs) That's £6 per hour in electric. I can run our tractor all day on less than £6 of red.

If that's the case, explain to me why the tajfun 11kw motor powers our tajfun 400 to exactly the same performance as the tractor does when it supposedly requires 35hp? I think the same motor does the 480 too with 25t split power...

 

Ive run the processor for 6 weeks on less than 300 litres of diesel. I'd have refilled the 100litre tractor tank every 3 days.

I never quite got my head round the seemingly straightforward

WWW.RAPIDTABLES.COM

Horsepower (hp) to kilowatts (kW) power conversion: calculator and how to convert.

HP/Kw equivalances, where an electric motor of lower power will apparently do the same work as a higher powered diesel.

Max torque at zero revolutions for the electric is part of this equation, and per the fuel burned comment, no wasted fuel "ticking over" between work cycles helps.

Still perplexing to me.

I wouldn't want to use a tractor PTO splitter alot as you get gassed by the fumes.

 

 

Anyone run  a hose etc  to take the exhaust fumes  further away?
