Ryetec Eco 50 Horizontal 5 Ton Electric Log Splitter

  • Product Details

    Fire has always been at the heart of human life, giving warmth and comfort and providing a focal point around which family and friends can gather. This is no different today: imagine toasting your toes in front of a fire of sweet apple logs while the sleet comes down outside, or sipping a glass of white wine beside a brazier on a lazy summer evening. The only downside is the knowledge that once the woodpile is gone, someone has to struggle out with an axe to replenish it. Or do they? You may have thought a log-splitter was a big, industrial piece of machinery, but a small one such as the Eco 50 is ideal for taking all the strain out of re-stocking that woodpile.

    This log-splitter is the smallest in the Eco range: its compact size and light, easily manoeuvred frame make it ideal for domestic use, and it offers a much safer and easier way to split small logs than using an axe. The machine will cope easily with logs up to 520mm in length, making it ideal for those who just want an easy and effective way to split logs for themselves.

    The machine can be used at ground level, but as standard it is supplied with a horizontal frame which allows for easy cutting at waist height, to allow you to work without uncomfortable stooping. The hydraulic ram pushes logs against the static axe with a splitting force of 5 tons, and once the log is split two powerful springs return the ram to the starting position ready for the next one. The ram is extendable, to save time when splitting shorter logs. The 1.5hp motor is powered from an ordinary 13 amp socket, to make it as easy as possible to use domestically.

    For maximum safety, the machine is fitted with a two-switch start system: a push button on the motor and a hydraulic valve lever. The machine will only run if both of these are operated simultaneously, to prevent trapped fingers or the splitter from starting by itself. To make this machine even more user-friendly the trolley is fitted with wheels, to allow you to transport it easily between storage and usage area.
