Hints & Tips
A sure way to a painful back is splitting wood when you are not used to wielding an axe.
Even easy-splitting wood like straight-grained ash or oak needs a bit of effort and can play havoc with your back if you’re not fit.
And remember, when it comes to logs for the fire a split log will always burn more readily than one which is not split or sawn.
So here are two bargain log splitters which have all the power you need for dealing with logs too big for the fire.
Both are the lowest priced log spliters available in their class.
The first is the MD 4-Ton Electric Horizontal Log-Splitter, a machine which uses a 1500 Watt electric motor to produce the splitting power.
Logs are forced via a ram on to a triangular splitting wedge and the machine can take logs 25 cm in diameter and 37 cm long.
You need both hands to operate the splitter meaning that they are both well out of the way when the machine is working.
With transport wheels and a rubber hand grip you can easily move it around the yard.
We deliver it free the next working day and there is a two year warranty. It costs £149.95, £100 less than the recommended selling price.
If you have closer grained wood to split, say something like apple or cherry, the
MD 5-Ton Electric Log-Splitter is the answer.
The 1500 Watt electric motor works to develop five tons of splitting power as the ram forces the logs against the splitting wedge.
Again, both hands are needed to operate the machine which will take logs up to 25 cm diameter and 52 cm long.
It costs £179.95 as against the recommended price of £299.95 and we deliver it free the next working day. There is a two year warranty and free next working day delivery.
