Ariens offers a full line of log splitters engineered for efficiency and ease of use on a variety of jobs. Powerful and robust, these log splitters feature Subaru engines with a noise-reducing muffler design, 5-inch bore position, and 12- to 17-second cycle time. An open operating zone reduces operator bending, reaching and fatigue by allowing operators to walk right into the work zone. Centrally located controls make it operable from either side, while vertical and horizontal splitting capacity allows the operator to split larger logs with less lifting. Critical components and hoses are located at the front of the machine to reduce the likelihood of damage to the unit from dropped logs. A work table and log cradle come standard for productivity and ease of use, eliminating the need to set logs on the ground or having logs drop to the ground.
