Log splitters are becoming increasingly popular in the UK as a safe and easy way to chop wood for a fire pit or oven without an axe, cutting work time in half.
They're useful for anyone with a fireplace in the garden or home, and they can easily chop wood down to the perfect size for chimineas and wood-burning stoves. Split wood is also more efficient for stacking in log storage, making it easy to stock up for winter months. Log splitters work by applying pressure on logs with a dull wedge, cleanly and safely splitting wood into two or even four pieces depending on the model you buy. Attached wheels on most options make them easy to transport and store.
Log splitters come in two styles with different power options to suit both domestic and commercial situations. Horizontal models are smaller and less expensive, perfect for chopping smaller logs in low volumes. Vertical log splitters typically apply more pressure and work well on larger logs. Electric splitters are a great option because they can be used in garages and workshops, but a petrol model will have more power and may be preferred for professional use. There are also manually operated options for sale that are easy to use and offer a great value.
