The Portek charger quiksplit has plenty to boast about, the
8.5 ton impact electric log splitter is the fastest log-splitter on the market.
Ten times faster than hydraulic splitters, the Portek charger uses kinetic
energy to split logs quickly and efficiently. Simple to use and fully-portable,
the log splitter can be positioned anywhere on flat ground.
Its 1.5Kw electric motor powers the flywheels and propels the
ram forward with an impressive force of 8.5 tonnes. With a speedy cycle time of
less than one second there is no waiting around or crouching down for long periods, the log
splitter cuts the logs into manageable sizes safely with minimal user effort.
With a build quality you would expect from Portek, the
charger has a sturdy chassis, robust wheels and a practical handle. For safety,
there are heavy-duty guards and a safety switch conveniently positioned next to
the handles. Two-handed operation is required to engage the mechanism and
release the ram.
