Splitting logs requires a lot of force. A few hundred years ago, most people had nothing better than an ax to split logs. These days, commercial log splitters can make quick work of logs. Even the thickest logs can’t stand up to a commercial log splitter.
Log splitters can do all the heavy work, pushing logs into place and running them through a blade. Using a commercial log splitter also allows you to enjoy dependable, predictable results. Splitting logs with an ax might produce inconsistent results but by using a log splitter, you can get pretty uniform results.
The best part of a commercial log splitter is probably how quickly it works. You can split dozens of logs within a matter of minutes. If splitting logs is part of your business, or you otherwise have a lot of logs to split, a heavy-duty log splitter can save you a lot of time.
Of course, using a commercial log splitter is a bit dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing. That said, by using basic safety methods and also taking your time, you can greatly increase safety and reduce the risk of accidents.
