Log Splitter 3455 / 3465
The Split-fire 3455/3465 gas powered log splitter is the perfect machine for medium farms and large estates. In certain cases, it is also used in equipment rental locations. The 20-22 tons of splitting force has plenty of power to split large 36”+ diameter rounds. Although similar in power and speed to the 3255/3265 log splitter, the 3455/3465 offers an interchangeable 2-way / 4-way knife. And no, it’s not just an added 2-way / 4-way knife. The frame is lengthened and reinforced, along with specific 4-way sliders, stops, and stub.Read More
When time is money and the wood is straight, the interchangeable knife can increase productivity by 100%. It can be simply changed in 10 seconds by the removal of a quick-change pin. This allows flexibility when splitting large knotty logs with the 2-way knife or splitting straight grain wood with a 4-way wedge for extra productivity. With the addition of available weld-on options, the 3455/3465 can be built for your needs as a custom wood splitter. The 3455/3465 is nicely sized for medium operations, and is a perfect blend of efficiency, safety, speed and power.

Finally got my kubota tractor in and unpackaged the splitter. It works great.

A few months ago I helped a friend cut and split some very large oak rounds. He rented a Split-Fire for the day. I was very impressed with this splitter, in particular its two-way splitting action and powerful log lifter which doubles as a great working table.
I ended up doing some detailed research and a few weeks later bought my own 3265. It has operated flawlessly since I got it and I couldn’t be more pleased. It is far more efficient, faster, and safer than most other splitters on the market.
It is also very quiet with the Honda engine, which is important to me since I do my splitting in a residential neighborhood and I want to be considerate of my neighbors. If you split between 10 to 50+ full cords a year, l highly recommend this splitter!

What a machine! It has made the job so much easier and is certainly “less tiring”. The quality is obvious with the Honda engine and splitting capability. This has been my 3rd. firewood season year using this splitter. It actually makes me look forward to getting out there and doing some splitting.

I was talking to a gentleman in parts last week who very kindly sent me a replacement hydraulic cap for my Splitfire 255, unfortunately I have forgotten the name of said person. The cap arrived yesterday and as promised I have attached some photos of my splitter some of which I hope will be useful. From the date written on the serial number plate it seems I have owned it for at least 18 years. I acquired it as a gently used rental unit . In that time it has never let me down and has given perfect service with little maintenance other than periodic oil changes. It has only struggled once, and that was with a particularly miserable chunk of elm, but it prevailed! Maple, oak, beech or birch is a breeze!
The only part I have had to replace is the hydraulic filler cap but that was my fault, I clipped it with the bucket of my tractor.
All in all this is an amazing machine which has saved me an enormous amount of work and body pain! I have used one other make, an older model which we have at our camp, which only cuts one way. That really makes me appreciate the two way cut of the Splitfire with regard to both speed and convenience.

I’ve split hundreds of cords of wood with the machine over the last 15 years. Very reliable and excellent design. It’s a joy to use, one of the best equipment purchases I’ve ever made.

This machine is awesome, I use it all the time and everyone who sees it wants to buy it, my answer is you can’t afford it. Keep up the good work!

Very pleased with my Split-Fire firewood splitter purchase to date. There was a small hiccup within the first couple hours of use but the team at Split-Fire had that sorted in short time. Since then I have run a decent amount of wood through it and it has performed flawlessly. Thanks again for great service and product!
