Log Splitting or Wood Splitting can take on a different meaning depending on which region of the world you live, what type of wood you’re splitting, and for which purpose you are splitting it. That is why we offer a variety of different splitters to accommodate all types of projects.
Even those of you who are equipped with wood processors, need to get a log down to a certain size, so you can process the wood into smaller pieces. We have the right kind of splitter for that. Others may want to split for outdoor wood boilers and others use it for firewood. Those of us with mini-excavators know that it will save your back and do the job so much faster by using the machine to cut the wood down to the size you need. Here are some examples of the types of splitters we offer:
The Solaris Skid Steer or Excavator Wood Screw Log Splitter Attachment gives you a variety of motor options. Whether you have a mini skid steer or excavator, a walk-behind mini-loader, a tele-handler, standard flow, or high-flow Skid Steer or Excavator, we can accommodate nearly every kind of skid steer or excavator machine, compact track loader or multi-terrain loader in the market. Whether you have large logs, knotty logs, stringy wood – this skid steer & excavator wood screw log splitter attachment will split virtually anything! Great for cold or nasty weather because you can stay in your cab, lift a log by screwing the cone in part-way, then placing the log where you need it and unscrew it. The cone is around 7.5” thick at its widest point, which allows for great success in this log splitting attachment for skid steers and excavators.
Next, we offer a professional-grade, 30-ton log splitter (that is the amount of force it produces, not how much it weighs) that will allow you to power through your firewood very easily. The main advantage of the attachment being mounted on an excavator is the handling of the wood you are processing. It also allows you to stay in the cab while picking up and splitting your wood over a pile. This attachment is offered in three different models for excavators of varying sizes, from 6,000-18,000 lbs.
Our commercial grade OMEF Log Splitter utilizes excavators to handle large log from both sides and apply blades from both sides to split the wood with hydraulic force. There are handles to allow the operator to lift pieces and pile them. As an add-on, we offer a rotator, so you are able to rotate the attachment without having to turn the machine, making it exponentially more efficient for wood splitting.
If you are in a land clearing project and need to address stumps, instead of splitting logs or splitting wood, then the Solaris Shark Tooth Stump Splitter is the right answer for you. Check out the videos and images on the Shark Tooth Stump Splitter page and see how much more efficient and less messy it is than a dedicated stump grinder – not to mention a fraction of the price of a stump grinder. For smaller excavators, we offer a stump planer with an auger motor. If you already have an auger motor, you can fir just the stump planer bit for efficient and clean planning of stumps with your mini-excavator or skid steer.
