Log Splitter 4490

The 4490 is Split-Fire’s largest and most powerful hydraulic wood splitter that has been proven decade-after-decade in commercial and industrial use. The 4490 can handle just about any size log. Utilize its interchangeable 2-Way knife for stringy knotty logs and 4-Way wedge for straighter grain logs. The 4490 has a longer fully reinforced frame, larger log stops, and heavy duty 4-way slider compared to the 4290 log splitter. With 32 tons of splitting force and a 2-way splitting action, the 4490 is a pure production machine.

  1. The pictures above are from a Split-Fire 255 that my neighbour owns in Canada. I have been splitting wood on this machine since he purchased it in 2002. In that time, it has split well over a thousand cords of wood. The wood was used to heat 3 homes for the last 21 years. In that time, I don’t think it has ever not started or needed repair.
    During covid my neighbour passed away he was ill and died while the border was closed. The machine sat for 2 years unused. When we were allowed back into the country, I borrowed it and it started on the very first pull. Last fall I split 5 or 6 cords on his machine with no issue pictures above. While at home in the states I was slitting wood for my home with my splitter (not a Split-Fire). I must say it was painfully slow at that time I decided sell my splitter and purchase one of my own Split-Fire machines which I am hoping to take possession of next week. I can’t tell you how happy I was with my neighbour’s machine; I look forward to working with my new machine.
    Thank You,

  2. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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!
