How To Operate a Log Splitter

Recommended Posts

You seem like a really nice guy however with the qty your cutting/splitting you really need a better setup.  Working on the ground with a slow splitter is not great.  Here in the uk we cut logs shorter & thinner, average length would be 9 or 10" and max width upto say what would fit in 1 hand so 6".  We also generally process hardwood.  A processor may be a investment worth having, at worst a faster & better splitter.

I’m lucky in that both my 10kw Stoves take 450mm and 500mm logs.

Is there a word missing from the title of the clip..........the word 'not' by any chance? After 5 minutes there was more physical work being done to separate the part split logs than anything else and the thing nearly tipped over twice dealing with a couple of knots! If this is how they operate and how they are meant to be operated I will stick with my axes, wedges and sledgehammers thank you.

they must have 37hr days over there if he can afford to work at that speed🤣

I think he makes the most of his money continually posting links to his youtube page on here.
