Please note new model 2019 with twin lever to meet UK safety requirements.
The Black 12Ton 53 is a very powerful, horizontal wood splitter in the compact class. He has real 12 tons splitting force and a very robust 6.5 hp Briggs and stratton petrol engine.
The nip pressure is measured at our log splitters directly on Cleaver, so this specification also corresponds to the actual abutting nip pressure. In many other suppliers here unrealistic values are given, which are never achieved in practice.
The max. Length of Logs is 53 cm.
The splitter is easy to use. The engine can be very easily start with a rope pull starter and works well in freezing temperatures.
To facilitate the displacement is a drawbar on the device (without ball head shot). A road authority to operate behind a car does not have the device. The use behind an agricultural or forestry tractor would be suitable.
You can also carry the 12 ton on a conventional trailer for ease of moving araound.
We deliver to the splitter with the mounted riving knife still charge a wedge, which is simply pushed across the gap wedge. A change between wedge and cross is thus done in seconds!
By splitting wedge or wedge you split thicker stems with larger diameters in one operation. The special feature of this device is the wedge / wedge are permanently mounted and press the cylinder, the wood against it. Once pinched a piece on the cross, so it is usually sufficient simply the next Log you would split ! this will allow you can work quickly and efficiently.
The hydraulic system is designed so that the 4 way knife stops in any position and either forwards or can be moved back. The force is always present and the 4 way knife must not, as many competing products, be driven back again and again up to the starting position.

The device is delivered well packed and part-assembled in a wooden crate. You should allow approx. 1 hour for final assembly. Step by step assembly instructions as well as several detailed diagrams are part of the manual that comes with your log splitter. Assembly is not difficult. However, in the event that you require any assistance, we are happy to help you. You will need approx. 8 litres of hydraulic oil to make the device ready before use. A hydraulic oil of classification HLP32 would be ideal and is widely available. In addition you will also need approx. 1 litre of engine oil for the engine. For this purpose we recommend multi-grade oil of classification 10W30 or 15W30
