In the current market, there are three types of log splitters. The three include manually powered, gas powered and electrically powered. The three log splitters have different features which are all positive. In this article we are going to look at the features of the three and you will choose the best among them.
The first splitter we are going to look at is the manually powered splitter. This type of a log splitter is a hydraulic jack that is laid on the inside. The splitter has a hand pumping jack that causes a rod to ram or a log against the splitting wedge. This type of a log splitter can be termed as the best because it has an effective process, easy to use, safe and quiet. It does not require electricity or gasoline for it to operate. It is environment friendly, compact and it can be stored easily and can be used anywhere. This is the best option for homeowners who burn less than a cord of firewood in a year.
The second type of log splitter that we can have a look at is the electric log splitter. It is one of the best splitters that you can try using. Homeowners who burn two to ten cords of wood annually will appreciate the of an electric log splitter. It is a machine that is light in weight and it can be moved from one place to the other easily and can be stored easily. It operates using standard household currents. It is so unfortunate that this type of splitter cannot be used in remote areas not unless there is a power generator backup. They are quiet and they are safe to use. They are environment friendly because they don’t produce harmful toxins because they don’t burn gasoline. They can also be used indoors and they are user friendly. They have a dependent productivity on several factors like diameter of the log and the hardness of the wood.
The last log splitter we are going to look at is the gas powered log splitters. It is the best to use on commercial or remote application. They are large, heavier and they require more storage space. Also the log splitter is capable of processing logs that have large diameters quickly. The machine cannot be used indoors because it produces toxic fumes and it has a noisy generator. Its high-end price range products offer the productivity and reliability by professional and commercial operations. When looking for log splitter consider looking for a vertical or a horizontal log splitter. The vertical splitter is the most preferred because the user does will not lift heavy logs taking them to the machine.
