Find Your Perfect Match: The Essential Guide to Selecting a Log Splitter


Hello, Friends of the Great Outdoors and Firewood Fans! Confused about which log splitter will suit your needs? Fear not! We’re here to demystify the process and guide you to the ideal SuperHandy log splitter for your specific situation.

Key Factors to Consider

  1. What Tonnage Do I Need?: Understand the necessary force for different log sizes and wood types.
  2. Log Size and Type: From hardy oak to pliable pine, we have splitters for every wood type.
  3. Your Usage Pattern: Whether you’re a seasonal user or a frequent splitter, we have the perfect match for you.

Deep Dive into Wood Types vs. Tonnage

  • Softwoods (Pine, Cedar, etc.): Lighter and simpler to split. Our 6-ton electric model is more than capable for these woods.
  • Medium Hardwoods (Maple, Ash, etc.): Need a bit more oomph. The 14-ton electric log splitter fits the bill perfectly.
  • Dense Hardwoods (Oak, Hickory, Elm): The toughest contenders. Here, our 20-ton or 25-ton gas log splitters show their true mettle.

Detailed Tonnage Recommendations:

  • 6-inch diameter logs (e.g., Birch, Aspen): Typically, 4-10+ tons are sufficient.
  • 12-inch diameter logs (e.g., Ash, Maple): This size generally requires 12-22+ tons.
  • 18-inch diameter logs (e.g., Oak, Hickory): For these larger logs, 20-26+ tons are often needed.
  • 24-inch diameter logs (e.g., Elm, Walnut): The largest and toughest logs might need 27-30+ tons.

Additional Factors to Consider:

  • Moisture Content: Green logs are heavier and more resistant, requiring higher tonnage. For example, freshly cut oak may need significantly more force than seasoned pine.
  • Log Length and Splitter Bed Size: Make sure the splitter can accommodate the length of your logs. Longer logs need a larger bed for stability and safety.
