The SideTool Mechanical Wood Splitter greatly increases efficiency in splitting wood without the manual lifting. Depending on the size and weight of your machine, you can split 30-42 inch rounds and 12-30 inch lengths. The heavier the machine, the easier it will be to split green wood, knotty wood, hardwoods, etc. – up to 16 pieces a minute.
Each splitter is made custom in the United States and uses professional grade and strength steel. The optimal machine is 3-8 metric tons, but even 4 ton machines easily split the toughest woods. We also have splitters for as large as 15 ton machines. You can stack the wood in a pile, bin, trailer, or inside your wood shed, instead of having to carry pieces around by hand.
The wood splitter attaches to the hydraulic or non-hydraulic thumb of the mini-excavator and uses your current coupler system. The attachement goes on and off in just a few minutes. Optimal size machines are in the 3-6 metric ton range, although we do have customers who operate the wood splitter with as small as a 1.5-ton machine or as large as a 7-ton machine. What makes this task even more efficient, is that you can use the wood splitter to lift the split pieces on to a pile or place them directly on your truck bed. This eliminates the need for additional labor to move the split pieces.
It helps move your order along faster if you can provide the four pin grabber measurements in the appropriate field above when submitting an order. If you use a pin grabber, please provide us with the Coupler Width, Pin Center to Center, Pin Diameter, and Thumb Width measurements. See the four illustrations below for a visual reference.
