NorthStar Horizontal/Vertical Log Splitter's multi-patented design gives you premium components and exclusive features that let you save time, increase performance and work effectively. You can count on NorthStar to bring strength, durability and innovation every time. The backbone of this log splitter is an industrial-strength I-beam with heavy plate steel reinforcement. The patented wedge design, made with alloy steel, maintains consistent split and has a unique curve that reduces initial contact area for maximum penetrating force.

Handles the Toughest Jobs

You'll never have an easier time tackling the toughest splitting jobs than you will with this NorthStar Horizontal/Vertical Log Splitter. It has a Concentric hydraulic pump that can sense when it is or isn't piercing a log and automatically adjusts flow and pressure accordingly, reducing travel time and increasing productivity.

Fuel-Efficient, High Output Honda Engine

When it comes to small engines, there aren't any names better than Honda. That's why we put a Honda GX200 engine on our log splitter. This engine packs a punch and has an exclusive idle down feature that saves fuel and reduces noise while you load the next log. Lower noise levels, lower vibration and lower emissions. Its design gives you better fuel economy.

Built to be the Best

At NorthStar, we think our log splitters are better than the sum of their parts. When you take a look at the high-quality components in our log splitters, that's really saying something. We use a two-stage Concentric pump that can deliver the same amount of pressure as a single-stage pump, but uses less horsepower. That saves the engine from wear and tear and keeps you splitting longer.

Premium Hydraulic Filtration

We gave the Horizontal/Vertical Log Splitter an exclusive premium Quad Filtration System. This system uses a four-step process to protect and prolong the life of the log splitter's hydraulic system components. These components include a 100 mesh suction strainer pre-filter, a 40 micron breather, and a 10 micron return line filter that can remove particles that are smaller than a human eye can see. The magnetic drain plug and tank baffling attract metal shavings and particles, preventing them from flowing through the hydraulic system.

Rugged and Easy to Maneuver

We know that there are times in life when you're going to have to go where the work is. The NorthStar Horizontal/Vertical Log Splitter has a two-inch ball coupler, an adjustable jack with oversized wheel, high-speed tires and fenders to make getting to and from the woodpile quick and easy.

Unparalleled Testing

No one builds better log splitters and no one tests log splitters more than Northern Tool + Equipment engineers. We put each NorthStar log splitter component through a series of extensive, real-world procedures in our Faribault, MN, testing facility and in the field. Before you put your log splitter to the test for the first time, you can feel confident that we already have.
