Anyone with a wood-burner or hearth to fire-up should certainly consider investing in a time- and effort-saving log splitter like this high-specification mains-driven model from German manufacturers Al-Ko.
Its very high-performance 2200w motor powers a hydraulically-driven ram that forces the log into the splitting-wedge with a pressure of 5-tons, leaving you with a piece of timber that’s the perfect size and shape for efficient burning. The maximum split-diameter is 25cm; the maximum split length is 52cm.
The Al-Ko KHS5200 Electric-Powered Hydraulic Log Splitter combines a low centre-of-gravity with a wide stance in order to ensure it remains safely stable, both when being moved from site to site, and when stationary.
It features two-handed safety-switching that works to eliminate any possibility of accidental start-up; and it sits on a pair of large-diameter wheels that make transport easy, no matter how rough the terrain.
- The wide platform of the AL-KO horizontal spiltters ensures a safe and stable operation.
- The new wide tyres on the horizontal AL-KO Wood Splitters ensure easy transportation even on uneven terrain, eg concrete, tarmac and lawns.
- Increases user safety by only allowing the unit to operate if both switches are simultaneously depressed.
