Log Splitter Parts - Build your own Log Splitter

The log splitter parts can be sized to suit portable petrol engine units, tractor PTO set-ups and electric motors. When designing your log splitter take into consideration the throughput you would like to achieve. The more horsepower you have, the faster you will be able to split the wood.

Contact Hyspecs

Hyspecs has a range of log splitter parts to suit a variety of size requirements and performances. Talk with one of our expert sales engineers for advise on 0508 497 732. They will be able to help with correctly sizing the components for the horsepower available, from home scale to commercial sized log splitters.

The video below shows a Hyspecs custom built commercial 30 tonne log splitter with integral conveyor. Hyspecs sales engineers designed the system with a Galtech double gear pump, unloader valve and auto kick out valve. So much easier than wielding an axe!

The log splitter parts can be sized to suit portable petrol engine units, tractor PTO set-ups and electric motors. When designing your log splitter take into consideration the throughput you would like to achieve. The more horsepower you have, the faster you will be able to split the wood.

Don't be fooled by firms advertising massive tonnages of cutting force. You could achieve this with a tiny 1 HP motor. However the cylinder would have to be huge, the pump small and it would take you all day to split a few pieces!

The petrol units have three basic sizes:  5 HP, 8 HP and 12 HP and can be suited for use with Briggs and Stratton, Honda or Tecumseh type engines. They use a Haldex Hi-Low (2-stage) hydraulic pump that is designed to use the available horsepower in the most efficient manner with a fast approach at low pressure, and a slower splitting action at high pressure. In conjunction with the Haldex pump is a Brand log-splitting control valve that has a built in return function that allows the cylinder to return while the operator loads the next log.

Hyspecs has selected the following log splitter parts for the three sizes of log-splitting systems, and is offering them as complete hydraulic component kits for new or rebuilt log-splitters.

All kits include: Hi-Low pump, log splitter valve, cylinder, return line filter, filler / breather, and a temperature / level gauge, (we also stock oil tanks). For pricing on the cylinders and engines please call us on 0508 497 732 and talk with a sales engineer or send us an email.
