Gas Powered Log Splitters 4290

Gas Log Splitter 4290

The 4290 2-Way gas log splitter boasts a Split-Fire industrial rated 32 tonnes of splitting forcewhich makes this machine the perfect solution for Forestry, Commercial use, or for Equipment Rental shops that cater to Contractors, Farmers, and Woodlot Owners who need to process extreme quantities of wood, or manage the largest and heaviest of logs. Not unlike all of Split-Fire’s gas log splitter products, and our 3 point hitch, skid steer, and excavator log splitters; the 4290 features our innovative 2-Way wood splitting mechanismthat doubles the operators’ productivity and efficiency whilst keeping the user safe.

Split-Fire’s 4290 gas log splitter is powered by the powerful Honda GX270 Engine which is proven in heavy-duty applications and features a quieter performance, lower fuel consumption, and lower emissions than previous versions. The 4290 is designed to endlessly split through the largest and gnarliest of rounds – it can easily handle splitting 48” diameter logs within an 11 – 13 second cycle time with its’ 32 tonnes of splitting force that’s delivered via our unique and most efficient forward-and-reverse stroke knife, pushed by an internally mounted and protected 4 ½” cylinder. With the cylinder mounted on the inside of the frame the rigidity of the equipment is increased to counteract frame twisting (and the resulting loss of splitting force).

With this added power and due to Split-Fire’s friction reduction engineering attributes, the over-all splitting force of the Split-Fire machine (versus competitor products) is measurably greater; even versus machines that claim a higher tonnage rating. This log splitting efficiency is also due to our innovative ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMW) sliders that glide the knife effortlessly; and “V” Shaped Log Stops that ensure logs split more naturally with less pent up force (and protects against dangerous log flyouts or from wood catapulting out sideways).

“…Your Commercial Investment into the 4290 Log Splitter Affords You Year-over-year of Service, with Low Maintenance Costs; All the While Keeping a Super-high Resale Value Even After 20 – 30 Years of Use for the Best Possible Return on Investment (ROI).”

Add even more value to your investment by specifying your machine with Various Options that increase your productivity, ergonomics, and safety; including the Hydraulic Log Lifter option that enables you to use the machine to lift the heavy logs for you (and doubles as a worktable in the upright position).

After-all it is the Split-Fire Advantage that’s established our products as the standard in the Equipment Rental Industry, i.e. the invention of the 2-Way gas log splitter close to forty (40) years ago that’s allowed its’ operators to consistently split twice-the-amount of firewood in half-the-time, every-time, and safely with reduced physical effort; but don’t just take our word for it, see what our valued customers have to say about their experience with our products and company on our Reviews Webpage.
