"...Split-Fire’s Gas Powered Log Splitters are Distinguished in the Marketplace as the World’s First to Split Logs in Both the Forward and Reverse Knife Stroke – Essentially Doubling the Amount of Firewood an Operator Can Split, in Half-the-Time, Safely, and Reliably Year-After-Year!"
Our gas powered log splitters product line-up meets and exceeds the requirements for splitting a variety of firewood types, sizes, and quantities; and are used by all including residential, hobby farm or woodlot owners who split less than fifty (50) cord per year; to professionals who purchase or rent our machinery for agricultural or commercial purposes, or for industrial purposes as in the Forestry or Logging Industry; who demand the highest performing, lowest maintenance, and value-added solution only Split-Fire gas powered log splitters can deliver.
Starting with the most compact and cost-effective model number 2265 in our gas powered log splitters line-up - residential, cottage, or woodlot property owners alike can now take full advantage of our“2-Way” Log Splitting Technologythat’s been proven in the most demanding of applications; including the demands of the Equipment Rental industry where our products made their name.
The 2265 is specified at a Split-Fire industrial rated 18 tonnes of splitting force; power that is not only provided by a Kohler or Honda engine, but due to Split-Fire’s combination of machine features that reduce fluid and sliding friction to ensure the most efficient delivery of that splitting force (within 5 - 8 seconds including forward and return stroke for 2265). These are engineering attributes and value-added features you will find on all of our gas powered log splitters, including the use of sliders made of extremely tough plastic (UHMW) with high abrasion and wear resistance to glide the knife back-and-forth with reduced energy losses; an internally mounted hydraulic cylinder for added system rigidity; and “V” shaped log stops that are unique to Split-Fire too, and further enhance the log splitters efficiency and safety.
Split-Fire’s models 3255/3265 and 3455/3465 are the go-to machines for professional or commercial users, and are an Equipment Rental Industry standard - Available For Sale and Rent Across North-America.

The3455/3465 also introduces a 4-Way Wedge or knife that can split a log into 4 pieces in 1 stroke(or 2 logs into 8 pieces including the return stroke).
The commercial / industrial grade 4290 and 4490 gas log splitters boast an industrial rated 32 tonnes of splitting force – which makes these machines the perfect solution for commercial, agricultural, forestry, or logging use.
