Used wood splitter
In DIY stores we can easily find a used log splitter; since these machines are often used only occasionally, the purchase of a second-hand product allows you to have an instrument of excellent quality, but at an affordable price. Log splitters are not cheap machines, and the used resource leads to making the purchase interesting even for those who will not make it a daily use. When buying a second hand model it is important to check that all its parts are in good condition; first of all the engine: ask for a field test, before accepting the purchase, because over time some models tend to lose strength, and to exert less pressure on the logs than that declared for a new factory product .
Log splitter prices
There are many models on the market, the most common are motorized, with an electric or internal combustion engine, and differ from each other in the pressure they can exert on the wood, to crush it; generally a medium-sized model, with a pressure around 4-5 tons, can cost around 200-300 euros. Motorized products that can exert higher pressures, up to 8-10 tons, can even cost 500-800 euros, depending on the maximum size of the wood logs that can be placed in the machine. By purchasing a used tool these prices can also be halved, allowing the purchase of a tool of this type even to those who make occasional use of it. On the market we also find manual log splitters, which assist human effort during the log splitting operation; these products are hardly found used, because the initial sale price is low, generally less than 50-80 euros.
