Do you know what is the superiority of this NorthStar Horizontal Vertical Log Splitter?
This NorthStar Horizontal Vertical Log Splitter s multi-patented design gives you premium components and exclusive features that let you save time, increase performance and work effectively. You can count on NorthStar to bring strength, durability and innovation every time. The backbone of this log splitter is an industrial-strength I-beam with heavy plate steel reinforcement. The patented wedge design, made with alloy steel, maintains consistent split and has a unique curve that reduces initial contact area for maximum penetrating force. Add the optional NorthStar Wedge Wings Item 110910, sold separately to make each stroke more efficient. Auto-return wedge saves time and effort when splitting.
The premium hydraulic system is protected by a quad filtering system that uses four different components to protect the hydraulic system from contaminants. Large hydraulic oil reservoir allows fluid to cool, reducing wear and allowing fluid to last longer. Slide-action self-leveling pivot makes it simple to switch between horizontal and vertical split. Designed to be easy to use in both orientations. Some assembly required.
What s Included
Handles the Toughest Jobs
You ll never have an easier time tackling the toughest splitting jobs than you will with this NorthStar Horizontal Vertical Log Splitter. It has a Concentric hydraulic pump that can sense when it is or isn t piercing a log and automatically adjusts flow and pressure accordingly, reducing travel time and increasing productivity.
Rugged and Easy to Maneuver
We know that there are times in life when you re going to have to go where the work is. The NorthStar Horizontal Vertical Log Splitter has a two-inch ball coupler, an adjustable jack with oversized wheel, high-speed tires and fenders to make getting to and from the woodpile quick and easy.
Built to be the Best
At NorthStar, we think our log splitters are better than the sum of their parts. When you take a look at the high-quality components in our log splitters, that s really saying something. We use a two-stage Concentric pump that can deliver the same amount of pressure as a single-stage pump, but uses less horsepower. That saves the engine from wear and tear and keeps you splitting longer. That s what we call precision engineering.
When you get a NorthStar log splitter, you know you re getting a tool you can rely on. The backbone of this log splitter is a durable, long-lasting industrial-grade I-beam. To make your job easier, the log splitter has bolt-on cradles that centers logs on the wedge and prevents them from rolling off the beam. When you need to split a log that is too large to lift onto the beam, converting to vertical splitting is as easy as pulling a pin.
No one builds better log splitters and no one tests log splitters more than Northern Tool Equipment engineers. We put each NorthStar log splitter component through a series of extensive, real-world procedures in our Faribault, MN, testing facility and in the field. Before you put your log splitter to the test for the first time, you can feel confident that we already have.
Setting the Standard for Over 30 Years
From the very beginning, our goal was simple Build the best log splitters on the market. The result NorthStar log splitters outclass the competition in every category quality, performance, reliability and value. NorthStar has set the standard for over three decades. Professionals and do-it-yourselfers trust the superior quality of NorthStar to get the job done right the first time, every time.
Premium Hydraulic Filtration
We know how much you rely on your equipment working properly. That s why we gave the Horizontal Vertical Log Splitter an exclusive premium Quad Filtration System. This system uses a four-step process to protect and prolong the life of the log splitter s hydraulic system components. These components include a 100 mesh suction strainer pre-filter, a 40 micron breather, and a 10 micron return line filter that can removes particles that are smaller than a human eye can see. The magnetic drain plug and tank baffling attract metal shavings and particles, preventing them from flowing through the hydraulic system.
Fuel-Efficient, High Output Honda Engine
When it comes to small engines, there aren t any names better than Honda. That s why we put a Honda GX270 engine on our log splitter. This engine packs a punch and has an exclusive idle down feature that saves fuel and reduces noise while you load the next log.
Customer reviewsBuilt like a tank-assembles like one too
First, I have to say this machine is seriously well built with all solid plate steel construction and full welds. The instructions are difficult to follow and I feel some tasks would be easier if done in a different order but two people assembled it in less than 2 hours. Be sure to lay out all the nuts and bolts. I found some hiding in fittings and it made everything more clear when they were discovered. The hose clamps need to be bigger and stronger but that is a minor detail. I am also concerned about the oil filter using the painted surface to seal against the gasket but it isn t leaking yet.
