A back-saving hydraulic lifter is a feature of trailer-mounted log splitters, available from Kennards Hire .

While powerful enough for commercial use, the trailer-mounted log splitters are easy to operate and move around.

No manual lifting is necessary. Logs are rolled along the ground on to the hydraulic lifter, which raises them effortlessly to the work bench, where they are rolled into position for splitting.

The machine is controlled with the knee, allowing the operator to use both hands on the log. With adjustable knee control and safety lockout, the unit is easy and comfortable to use.

The operator enjoys a relaxed stance, with straight back and good balance. The speed and efficiency of the operation, combined with the power of the axe blade, combine to provide great productivity. The trailer-mounted log splitter weighs just 420kg and is easy to tow.
