What is a screw splitter?

Screw Drive Wood Splitter Plans. Screw type log splitters utilize the concept of screwing a splitter tip that is pointed and tapered back to a wide spade that forces the wood apart as it is screwed into the log. It is a simple concept that allows many power options to propel the device.

How can I make my log splitter faster?

Only way to speed up a splitter is to move more oil. Either get a bigger pump or speed up the existing pump.

What is a kinetic log splitter?

In place of hydraulic pump systems, kinetic splitters use massive flywheels to convert energy from a motor or engine into a burst of force. That force drives a moveable rack and push plate into a log and pushes the log against the splitting wedge, breaking the wood apart.

How much is a log splitter?

The lowest price is for a hydraulic log splitter that will cost you just $649.99, while their most expensive product is a high-end Deluxe hydraulic splitter that costs $1,999.99.

How do I increase the cycle time on my wood splitter?

To increase cycle time, you will need a bigger hydraulic fluid pump; however, this could also call for the need to increase the size of your hydraulic tank. This is to prevent the hydraulic fluid from overheating.

Why is my wood splitter so slow?

A slow log splitter is often caused by issues with the power supply, hydraulics, ram, fan, pump or cylinder. Checking each element one-by-one can help you identify the cause of the problem. The speed of a log-splitter cycle ranges from 3-5 seconds up to 30 seconds, depending on age and type of log splitter.

Is kinetic or hydraulic log splitter better?

One more benefit: gas-powered kinetic wood splitters are incredibly energy-efficient tools that use less fuel than their hydraulic counterparts. Obviously kinetic splitters have a lot to offer. However, in certain cases, a hydraulic splitter still might be the better option for some people.
