What is a Kinetic Log splitter?

Your first question is what makes a log splitter kinetic? I wondered this too. Well, it first removes all the hydraulics which in itself elevates problems – I’ll come back to this. Instead, it uses kinetic energy via a flywheel system that stores energy as it spins. Then, you engage the lever which then transfers the energy to split the log. (here’s a handy wiki page to explain more)

Speed wise, our kinetic log splitter is unmatched. Their cycle time is usually around 3 seconds – quick right! Typical hydraulic fluid cycle times are 15-30 seconds, imagine how much more wood you can get through. Moreover, the splitting wedge returns to the starting position automatically.

As mentioned earlier, the kinetic log splitter cuts out the hydraulic fluid, and as such removes the wiring. So, as you can imagine, this dramatically reduces the need for maintenance. Likewise, there’s no fluid, so there are fewer opportunities for leaks. The only area that would require maintenance is a typical petrol engine.

Reliable, cheaper to run but incredibly quick – you need a kinetic log splitter. Why? Well, despite this you don’t lose any performance. In fact, because of the “burst of power” system – there’s few logs it can’t split. It makes light work of soft, hard, and knotted wood.
