Flywheel Wood Splitters

With original designed flywheel wood splitters, kinetic energy is stored in the revolving flywheels weight and RPM, offering a tremendous power advantage.  Several blows may be made to drive through any type of hard wood grain in order to split the log. With dense hardwood the flywheel may stall on overload impact but can recover in a split second.

Modern Flywheel Splitters work differently. Kinetic energy is stored in revolving wood splitters flywheels. These flywheels are firmly secured to a one-piece pinion gear. To transmit power from the pinion gear to a log, a rack gear is engaged by a cam-lock method. The rack gear, now fully engaged and locked in the pinion gear, moves out with a 12 to 24 ton force.

Because of the flywheel weight and RPM, being mounted on ball bearings and secured to the frame, the pinion gear has a tremendous power advantage. At the end of the full 24" stroke, the rack being spring loaded upward and backward disengages the cam lock and immediately returns to start position.

Super Split Flywheel Wood Splitter

The SUPER SPLIT® log splitter is a semi-automatic machine designed with safety in mind. For Because of  this safety feature, every cycle must be manually activated. However, after activation it will complete a full cycle and return to the starting position. The rack, however, can be disengaged at any time by tapping down on operating handle.

With super dense woods, the flywheel may stall on overload. Flywheel recovery time is about 1/2 second and several blows may be made to drive through any type of hard wood. If you have ever swung a heavy maul to land a big blow on a log, you can easily see why the SUPER SPLIT® wood splitter principle works so well for splitting wood.

Modern flywheel log splitters produce more firewood in less time!
