Wood Splitter I-Beam Dimensions

Getting that wood splitter that you are about to build to stand the test of time requires a few components to be sized properly in order to withstand the force you will be submitting it to.

The I-Beam is a big factor here and making sure you have what you need in size and weight will insure nothing gets bent!

The I-Beam is a Key Hydraulic Log Splitter Component

The I-Beams are identified by:

W DEPTH (inches)

WEIGHT PER UNIT LENGTH (pound force per foot)

For Example: W6 25 is an I-Beam with a Depth of 6.38 inches in the chart below, and having a Nominal Weight per Foot of 25 lb/ft.

 

These three units a,b,c, are calculated in combination to determine the tonnage capacity of the wood splitter I-Beam.
