We recently saw this review online from a satisfied RedGum log splitter owner called Chicko. "Wow! They claim it can split any Australian hardwood log.
I find if it fits between the end plate and the splitter ram it will, and so far that seems to be true regardless of log diameter.
It uses an easy start and reliable (genuine) Honda GX200 motor powering a massive hydraulic ram. They do not specify a tonnage claiming it to be an unreliable benchmark of performance given the existing claims that cannot be substantiated made by many foreign imports.
I made my decision to spend the extra and purchase a unit MADE for Aussie hardwoods, not the American or European pine and soft woods which seem to dominate the market. That choice seems to be vindicated given the increasing cost of firewood and my advancing reluctance to swing an axe each winter." Thanks for the great review Chicko - glad to hear that you are loving your RedGum log splitter!
