The Barreto log splitter is the industrial standard with a 790 lb. frame, high carbon wear-alloy wedge, and a 6” x 25 lb. wide flange beam, this splitter is built to endure. The knife plate features high wear nylon pads. Torsion axle suspension reduces bounce and improves tracking and towability when transporting. The cushion mounted log cradle is designed to snap out of the way when using the splitter in the vertical position. A rubber bump stop protects the splitter when transitioning from vertical to horizontal and spring loaded lock bars secure the splitter in place. The engine is mounted on rubber isolators to protect from vibration when towing or operating.
