Log splitter purpose-built for rental
Split-Fire has introduced the model 2265, a new log splitter for rental equipment dealers. Featuring a unique, two-way splitting action from the knife which splits wood in both the forward and reverse stroke, the 2265 Split-Fire log splitter is more productive and safer than standard single stroke splitters. Operators don’t have to wait for the knife to cycle back before putting another log on as they can now split wood on the return stroke, making wood splitting fast and easy.
The 2260 log splitter has a very fast cycle time completing a full stroke, forward and reverse, in only four to six seconds. Rated for logs between 18 and 20 inches diameter, the model 2265, two-way log
splitter features a unique stop design that prevents dangerous fly-outs when splitting knotted hardwoods, or from logs that have been
cut on an angle.
Powered by a Honda 6.5 HP GX-series engine, Split-Fire two-way log
splitters are manufactured from a solid steel tube with the cylinder
inside the frame sliding on hardened plastic sliders running down the
entire bearing area. This unique design avoids metal on metal friction
and keeps the cylinder positively in place to prevent the rod from
bending and the frame from bowing. Five to seven HP Subaru Robin engines are
also available as an optional power source.
Using North American-sourced raw materials and components, Split-Fire
self-contained log splitters are safe, long lasting, low maintenance and
simple to use machines that allow rental companies to get a fast return on investment.
