This splitter uses a solid steel splitting cone (you can't break it) and it has been fitted with a coupler that enables it to work from the typical compact tractors post hole diggers.
Just replace the dirt digging auger from the gear box of your posthole digger with this wood splitting Cone.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF USING THE AUGER LOG SPLITTER RATHER THEN THE HYDRAULIC OR ELECTRIC ?
And as for cutting logs in the production mode, consider this. If you had a ten foot log and needed to cut this into 16" lengths, so they will fit into your wood stove, you could split this ten foot log from the center with this splitter, but do not split it all the way, leave it hinged so that when you cut the length you want with the chain saw, you are cutting 2 already split pieces. Now you have just split and cut 16 pieces for your stove with only one splitting action. And because you can lift this log with your post hole digger and the wood splitting auger, simply by screwing down the center of the log just far enough to hold the weight of the log, now you can set the log up out of the dirt. ( Much easier on the chain saw.) Image #3 shows a log split but still hinged and ready for the chain saw.
This new solid steel splitting cone can last a lifetime. Using a category 1 diesel tractor, it can split logs as big as 4 ft, to 5 ft round and 4 ft long from the bark side, and a 7ft round 18" long in the upright position. And most importantly, you don’t need to manhandle the logs. Due to this fact you can split an entire tree from your tractor seat. It can split a 10ft long, 14" round log. Image #2 shows a 3ft round by 4 ft long log that must weigh between 250 pounds to 300 pounds. This setup can transport this log and other heavy logs. And it can also split this log easily into wood stove size pieces. The last photo is the solid steel splitting cone with a 2" diameter coupler welded to it and fits over the typical tractors post hole digger. The Atom Splitter comes with an owners manual.
The above wood splitter that is designed to operate from the typical post hole diggers made for the categorys 1,2,3, compact tractors.
IMPORTANT! IF YOUR TRACTOR HAS A HORSEPOWER OF 45 OR ABOVE, THEN WE WOULD RECOMMEND THAT YOU PURCHASE THE ATOM SPLITTER WITH THE 2" HEX DRIVER BECAUSE THE TYPICAL 2" COUPLER IS ONLY 3/16 " THICK AND THEREFORE NOT STRONG ENOUGH FOR THAT MUCH HORSEPOWER. WE HAVE FOUND THAT THE PIN BOLTS BEGIN TO STRIP, THEN THE PIN HOLES BECOME OBLONG AND WILL DESTROY THE COUPLER. THE 2" HEX DRIVER IS OVER 1/2" THICK AND WILL FIT OVER THE P.H.D SHAFT.
These splitters are are made and ready to ship same day of order.
