The standard four way wedge is over 21″ wide and is constructed out of AR-400 steel with the wings being 1/2″ thick and the center wedge being 1″ thick. This wedge is a jack of all trades being equally at home splitting small round or large blocks. It truly provides the operator with the utmost of flexibility.
The Honda GX-390 is a large displacement single cylinder engine equipped with electric start. Producing 11.7 HP @ 3600 RPM this engine combines efficiency with power to produce firewood in an efficient fashion.
For the customer that wants to make good quality firewood with the fewest strokes possible this is the wedge for them. Sharing the same robust structure as our Four way wedge, an additional two wings are welded 3″ above the horizontal wings on the 4 way allowing the machine to produce 6 pieces of wood with every stroke. AR-400 steel is used throughout.
All Alpha wood splitters come equipped from the factory with the capability of accepting the box wedge with ease. This innovative wedge and pull back arm system allows the operator to produce 4″ pieces of firewood with minimal re-handling. This is made possible by the floating pull back arm and box wedge which allow large blocks to be cycled through the machine with minimal handling.
The standard 4″ cylinder provides up to 37,680 lbs of splitting force. With its 2.75″ rod for fast retract speeds this cylinder can perform a full cycle through wood in less than 5 seconds. The cylinder as large 1.25″ ports reducing the amount of back pressure further increasing the speed. Ideal for most species and sizes of trees providing the highest possible output.
This optional cylinder provides up to 58,875 lbs of splitting force. With its 3.5″ rod for fast retract speeds this cylinder can perform a full cycle through wood in less than 8 seconds. The cylinder has large 1.25″ ports reducing the amount of back pressure further increasing speed. Ideal for the largest of rounds from tree service operations this cylinder provides the highest possible splitting force to tackle the gnarliest of blocks.
