10ton kinetic log splitter UPGRADED Version:
1. 1800W Electric Motor; 2. Heavier Flywheels; 3. Thicker Rack.
This Forestwest 10ton Kinetic Log Splitter BM11110S is a more advanced model call Kinetic Log Splitter. Tested with Jarrah, Yellow Box, String Bark, and Red Gum (Straight Grained). It is a lot more efficient with only 2-3 seconds per split cycle, much faster than hydraulic ones. And it required very low maintenance, you only need to keep it clean and lubricated.
10ton Kinetic Log Splitter BM11110S can generate up to 10ton splitting force, powered by an upgraded 1800W electric motor. This machine is up about waist high with a stand, so you don't need to bend over to do any splitting, and the front tray will catch all the split pieces ready for the next split. The recommended size is 350mm long and 300mm round while the maximum log sizes are 400mm long and 350mm round (this may vary for different types of wood). Perfect for domestic use.
Note: Please wear necessary safety gears(gloves, goggles, safety boots, etc.) during operation.

Does a good job of splitting jarrah in a fraction of the time it used to take me manually.
I have only trialled the unit. It is effective but I will reserve judgement until I have split a substantial quantity. In general I am happy with construction, paint quality, welding etc.. There were quite a few loose nuts and bolts. This is not acceptable and torques should be correct on all preassembled elements. When assembling, excessive paint on both axles had to be removed with emery strip so as to be able to fit the wheels. For a unit that costs this much a better manual outlining assembly and maintenance and routine lubrication etc. is warranted. The assembly diagram is not highly detailed so positioning of washers is not clear. Details on lubrication are vague even though it is important. Also on my unit the inside lock nut on the threaded tube where the cable is run through the wall of the power box is missing. This means the cable is not properly secured. To fit an inner locknut means the box has to be opened and cable unscrewed from terminals. I have had to use the outer luck nut on the inside and then I have used a jubilee clamp to secure the threaded sleeve on the outside. This is far from ideal. If an operator doesn’t have disconnect / reconnect qualification you are placing owner in poor position if they effect this repair themselves. The plastic cover over the red and green off / on switches is ridiculous and flops over the buttons making them difficult to acccess. I have had to remove it. I’d also suggest the switches are too close together. The unit should have a mushroom off button that can be operated more easily than a button you need to poke down with a finger. I’d question whether the current switches are compliant with any Australian Standard. You should also make it clear that the unit is fitted with a 15 amp pinned plug. Most domestic users will not have a 15amp circuit and PowerPoint. I have had to modify an extension cord that has 10 amp make on one end and 15 amp female in the other to accept the 15 amp male plug on the unit. I would only recommend the product if I can be confident these faults are addressed.
Very happy with it's performance.I like the stand and rack. On logs with twisty grain which do not split through, I use a block of wood between the log and the head of rack. It would improve the manouvreability if the track of the wheels was wider because the machine is very top heavy.
