Vertical log-splitters are designed to handle a wide range of log-sizes and types and the heavy-duty build-quality of this model makes it suitable for domestic operators seeking a top-end machine that will handle large quantities of wood quickly and efficiently.
The Lawnflite LS2800EV Vertical Log Splitter has an extremely powerful 3000w electric motor and employs a hydraulic ram to exert 8-tons of pressure. It will split both soft-woods and close-grain hard-woods, such as cherry.
The base-plate on this log-splitter can be adjusted to three separate positions depending on the size of logs you're chopping. In position one, the log-splitter can be used to split smaller logs up to a maximum length of 55cm and the maximum recommended log-diameter for each of the three positions is 30cm.
The overall weight of the Lawnflite LS2800EV is just 55kg, making it more manoeuvrable than many of the other models in its class. It comes fitted with wheels and a transport-handle, enabling it to be easily transported from its place of storage to your area of work.
To ensure safe operation, your hands have to be holding onto the activation-levers attached to the outer parts of each of the clamps that hold the log in place. The levers are shielded from the splitting-action; and the unit will only work when your hands are clear of any danger.
