What do you know about horizontal and vertical log splitters

There are different kinds of log splitters. These are divided and categorized based on a number of factors. They are categorized based on the power source, on the tonnage, on the type of log splitters and also on the positioning.

The Best log splitters perhaps are the ones that are horizontal. These log splitters have the user putting the log on top of the splitter and then there is a ram that pushes this against a wedge which is stationary and this is how it gets split.

However, if there are logs which are enormous then this is not possible to use because it will be very difficult to carry those gigantic logs and lift them on the log splitter. Therefore, when the logs are humongous, instead of using horizontal log splitters, vertical ones are used instead.

The vertical horizontal log splitters are those log splitters which allow you the best of both worlds. These can be pivoted into either a vertical or a horizontal position and so the log can be rolled as well as put in position without it having to be lifted. It is for the versatility that these are considered the Best log splitter.

The horizontal only splitters are used to split small logs. If the logs can be put on a cart or on a tailgate, then the piece can be placed on the splitter without bending it and then when the log is split, the pieces can be tossed on the cart. There are also dual action log splitters. These have added convenience. The user is allowed to split the log in both directions. Therefore, the user can continuously split without having to wait for the ram to come back to the starting position.

However, horizontal splitters do not allow you to roll massive wood chunks on to it. For this purpose a horizontal splitter with a hydraulic lift can be used. This lift will help you lift the log and therefore the user need not put his or her back out of joint trying to do the same and at the same time the splitter’s orientation also need not be changed.

The log splitter when used in the vertical position allows you to split enormous logs without having to lift them at all. Incase the maximum of what is split is too large for lifting, then a splitter which is vertical horizontal should be used. In this, the splitting edge is on the ram and the base is flat of this and therefore, the log can be rolled without having to lift it.

When there are vertical/horizontal wood splitters, the splitter end can be lowered to the ground and rolled on the large round. When the splitting of the large round is done, the splitter can be again put in the horizontal position and the smaller chunks can be split then. It can also be used to tow around and split small logs. It can also be pivoted for large logs which are too big to be lifted.
