18 Ton Horizontal Wood Splitter Plans

This set of plans is for a hydraulic horizontal 18 ton wood splitter (AS SHOWN IN PICTURE BELOW) that tows behind a vehicle. It is a simple construction plan that can be put together from scrap materials you can find often at your local scrap yard metal recycler.

With a basic I-beam construction, along with some square tubing and channel steel you can piece together the main beam assembly and add scrap yard axels, rims, and tires for your main structure.

From there you assemble the hydraulic tank that will become the center base where you attach your beam assembly and axels to give you your main structure for the motor and hydraulics.

Most of your investment for this horizontal hydraulic log splitter will be in the power unit, hydraulic cylinder and pump. Aside from that the I-beam is the biggest hunk of steel you need. From there you will be able to fabricate a lot of the rest from many variables from your scrap yard to put together the splitting wedge, towing tongue, hydraulic tank, log butt plate, and peg leg with foot. Build it yourself and save $.
