How does a log splitter work? Follow

Log splitters are, very basically, mechanically powered axes.
A cylinder, which has a wedge or ram attached to the end of it, is slowly driven into a log by means of a mechanical lever, either powered by mains electricity or a petrol engine.
Subsequently, the splitting work is being done by mechanically produced pressure, which forces the wedge into the wood, and when buying a log splitter, the amount or ‘tonnage’ of pressure is an important consideration. This pressure rating can range from 4 tons for a small electric machine to 25 or more tons for petrol machine.
