The problem of splitting wood facing mankind for thousands of years. Primitive tools for solving this problem were created on the eve of birth of mankind. As a cleaver used stone axes. Later they were replaced splitters with metallic stitching part. However, the technique is not standing still. Even in the countryside is harder and harder to find a man with an ax.
Especially since we can not talk about industrial Kolka wood by hand. Axes Wood splitters are replaced. It is obvious that the cleaver can be divided into domestic and industrial. Their prices vary more than tenfold. Why is that? Primarily with the resource and metal work. Everyday cleaver is perfect to chop wood at his dacha on the kindling fire. But he was unable to work for a long time. Domestic Woodchopper not calculated the thermal regime, respectively, about any of their industrial use can not walk and talk.
Another class of Wood splitters are industrial. They are constructed with a view of the large share of work. Accordingly, they will be much harder. Hence, increases metal and price. Principle of Wood splitters follows. Place the file in a log chute in front of the knife. Hydraulic piston pushes on the blade and the log is split. There are several signs of the classification cleaver. One of them – is solved with a machine problem. Machines can either chop wood, or chop and trim. Accordingly, the trimming can be used to either drive or a bandsaw. Drive, as opposed to a band saw, does not require daily grinding. However, the disc models are more expensive. Professional Wood splitters differ in the maximum diameter of the block of wood, which can be cracked. With increasing diameter increases steel, power required and the cost of the machine. As the power source can be either your own engine machine, or tractor pto.
