If you're a fan of top-quality German engineering, but don't wish to spend excessively to benefit from it, then the highly-versatile Al-Ko LHS5500 could well be log-splitter for you.
Its versatility is down to its adjustable base plate, which can be set to any of three-stages, depending on the size of the log to be split, in turn reducing energy consumption and saving you a significant amount of time. The three settings are for maximum log-lengths of 570; 810; and 1050mm.
The Al-Ko LHS5500 Electric Powered Hydraulic Log-Splitter has been fitted with a beefy 3000w motor that offers the sort of powerful performance you'd expect from a petrol engine, but with none of the associated headaches (maintenance, starting, etc).
It develops a massive 5.5-tonne splitting-force, so all manner of wood types can be split with no fuss; and it's equipped with four tubular base supports for rock-solid stability during operation.
This model's all-steel construction confers outstanding strength and durability, with Al-Ko offering a two-year manufacturer's warranty.
