NorthStar Horizontal/Vertical Log Splitter - 30-Ton, 160cc Honda GX160 Engine

Item# 1109
This NorthStar Horizontal/Vertical Log Splitter is powered by a quality Honda GX160 OHV engine with idle control to split logs up to 25in. long. Features a 2-stage Concentric pump, which decreases cycle time by delivering high flow/low pressure when there is no resistance and low flow/high pressure when cutting through a log. Uses a horizontal shaft engine, engineered for a long life with auto idle/throttle control that also saves fuel and reduces noise. Patented log stripper clears log from retracting wedge. Log cradle prevents split wood from falling onto the ground. Add exclusive NorthStar 4-way wedge wings #1143, sold separately and split logs 3 times faster.

"I have recently purchased the northstar 30 ton log splitter and I must admit it was a terrible buy. After assembling the splitter both tank fittings leaked hydrolic fluid. Also The piston and the beam are much to heavy for the frame, legs and hinges to support. The outrigger legs are very hard to work with especially in the yard on uneven surfaces. If the center of the splitter was pushed forward then it would be a decent machine. This splitter is not user friendly. Only thing good about this machine is the Honda motor which can be found on cheaper easier to use log splitters"
