Hydraulic log splitters come in a few different forms. Most of the time a hydraulic log splitter is a machine that has a motor mounted on it and a metal beam that the hydraulic cylinder glides down to split the log.
But there are also hydraulic log splitters that rely on the hydraulic system of another machine to work. Skid steer hydraulic log splitters use the system on the skid steer to power the hydraulic cylinder. And 3-point hydraulic log splitters rely on the hydraulic system of a compatible tractor to work.
Hydraulic log splitters have been used for a long time because they are dependable, have a high splitting force, and come in a wide variety of sizes and prices. They aren’t the only option, however. There are also kinetic log splitters and the good old-fashioned manual log splitters that might be a good fit for you.
