Wood splitters | AL-KO Tips for splitting wood

Tips & Tricks

Heating with wood is becoming increasingly popular. Many people appreciate the feeling when they sit in front of the fireplace in the living room on winter evenings, or they enjoy the warmth of a tiled stove. A saying goes: "Wood warms three times": first when the wood is cut/sawn, then when it is split and finally when it burns. With the help of wood splitters, the sawn wood can easily be chopped into suitable logs. Here we give you some advice about splitting wood:

Horizontal or vertical log splitters?
With standing log splitters, the splitting wedge is driven vertically into the log, therefore higher forces can be used. With horizontal splitters it is the other way round: The wood is pressed horizontally into the wedge.

The horizontal log splitters
| Powerful log splitters with splitting pressure up to 5 tonne
| Ideal for splitting firewood up to 52 cm long
| Space-saving and mobile
| Ergonomic and safe


The vertical log splitter
| Extremely powerful log splitter with splitting pressure up to 6 tonne
| Powerful for logs up to 55 cm
Extremely robust construction
| Mobile and space-saving storage


Saw first, then split
Saw the wood to the ideal splitting length of your log splitter so that you don't have to hold it twice. Please wear safety shoes, goggles and gloves.

Split wood as freshly as possible
Split freshly cut wood along the grain. Splitting dry wood is risky because it can burst and parts can fly around. The ideal time to chop wood is winter.

Store
After splitting, store the logs in a dry, well-ventilated place and not stacked too tightly. Before the firewood can be used for heating, it should be stored for at least one year or longer, depending on the type of wood, so that it is sufficiently dry for clean burning.

Accessories
For your safety, only use original accessories for log splitters.

Wood splitter: horizontal or vertical?

Wood splitters from AL-KO can be used for logs of different lengths and for pieces of wood with different diameters. In our assortment we offer you both standing (vertical) and lying (horizontal) wood splitters. Their construction is robust and their operation is characterised by comfort and maximum safety. For your protection, they are therefore equipped with a two-handed safety control.
 
All our log splitters can be easily transported to the desired location thanks to the integrated wheels. The horizontal splitters are not only convincing in terms of stability, but are also particularly safe thanks to the protective cover. For exact splitting, the splitting wedges are welded several times and therefore very durable. Our upright log splitters have holding claws which fix thin and diagonally cut wood and thus enable precise splitting, as well as a practical quick-release screw so that you can limit the splitting stroke precisely.
