Frequently Asked Question

How many ton log splitter do you really need?
There are many factors that influence the need for a log splitter. First of all, it depends on how much you intend to split. If you only want to split small logs and kindling, then a smaller machine is more than enough. However, if you want to split logs up to around 1 ton, then I would suggest looking at some larger machines such as those from Green Star Industries or Ditch Witch which have very large capacity engines.

If your main objective is commercial logging, where the logs are mostly over 2 tons in weight and possibly over 6-8 inches in diameter, then I would definitely recommend looking at some of the larger hydraulic machines like those from John Deere or Case New Holland which can handle even the largest log loads while still being extremely efficient.

Can you split logs with a chainsaw?
Yes, you can use a chainsaw to split logs. When the engine of your chainsaw is running at full speed, the saw will move through the log quickly and with great force.

This means that the saw will have enough power to easily cut the log into small pieces. The only problem is that it might be difficult for you to control the speed of your saw so that it doesn’t move too fast or too slow which would result in having broken logs instead of clean-cut ones.

In order to help you maintain a steady pace while cutting logs, I recommend using a log splitter machine rather than trying to cut them on your own with just a chainsaw because they are much easier and safer to use.

What size log can a log splitter split?

It depends on the type of log you are splitting. If it is a small diameter log, then you can split it into 2 or 3 pieces. But if it is large diameter logs, then you will need to use a larger-sized splitter that can split up to 10 inches in diameter logs.

Conclusion

There are many log splitters out there. You need to choose the one that will be efficient for your purpose. In order to find the best log splitter, you need to consider how much power it needs, how long does it take to start up and shut down, and what is its price.

If you want a log splitter that can do most of the work for you, then a cordless model might be best for you. If you want an electric log splitter that runs on gas or electricity, then this might not be the best choice for you.
