Kinetic Energy Instead of Hydraulics!
We threw out the hydraulic fluid, pumps, pistons, and valves! The result? Fewer moving parts, less maintenance, and a 2.5 second cycle time (compared to about 18 seconds for typical hydraulic splitters). Here are the features that make this design, fueled by kinetic energy, so much better than any hydraulic splitter:
A 55-lb flywheel creates a mass that spins at 3600 rpm, storing kinetic energy...
A hardened pinion gear transfers the energy from the flywheel to the rack...
the rack hurls the log into the splitting wedge. Then the rack auto-retracts, so that the G22 is instantly ready for the next log.
POWERFUL OVERHEAD VALVE ENGINE. 3.5 ft-lbs of torque are magnified many times by the 55 lb. flywheel. Stored energy is then released in a rapid stroke (similar to a karate chop) to split the toughest logs (up to 18” long x 30” in diameter) in less than 1 second.
STEEL WORK TABLE reduces backstrain by capturing split pieces, all but eliminating the constant bending to retrieve them for resplitting.
2-YEAR WARRANTY on the complete machine (including the engine) for Homeowner Use. (90-Day Warranty for Commercial Use).
