NorthStar's best horizontal/vertical log splitter has a multi-patented design that gives you premium components and exclusive features that let you save time and energy. This log splitter has a Honda GX390 engine, a premium filtration system and a high-speed towing package. 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. The NorthStar Wedge Wings make each stroke more efficient. Auto-return wedge saves time and effort when splitting.
The premium hydraulic system is protected by a quad filtering system that uses four different components to protect the hydraulic system from contaminants. Large hydraulic oil reservoir allows fluid to cool, reducing wear and allowing fluid to last longer. Slide-action self-leveling pivot makes it simple to switch between horizontal and vertical split. Designed to be easy to use in both orientations. Ultra-Tow™ Ultra-Pack high-speed hubs, torsion axle, 12in. high-speed tires and integrated trailer lights make it easy to get to the worksite. Some assembly required.
Features + Benefits
You'll never have an easier time tackling the toughest splitting jobs than you will with the NorthStar Deluxe 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.
We know that there are times in life when you're going to have to go where the work is. The NorthStar Deluxe Horizontal/Vertical Log Splitter has a two-inch ball coupler, an adjustable jack with oversized wheel, plus a high-speed towing package with Ultra-Tow™ Ultra-Pack high-speed hubs, lights, torsion axle, 12in. high-speed tires and fenders to make getting to and from the woodpile quick and easy.
When it comes to small engines, there aren't any names better than Honda. That's why we put a Honda GX390 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.
At NorthStar, we think that our log splitters are better than the sum of their parts. When you take a look at our 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. That’s what we call precision engineering.
We know how much you rely on your equipment working properly. That's why 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.
When you get a NorthStar log splitter, you know that you're getting a tool you can rely on. The backbone of this log splitter is a durable, long-lasting industrial-grade I-beam. To make your job easier, the log splitter has bolt-on log tables that center logs on the wedge and prevent them from rolling off the beam. When you need to split a log that is too large to lift onto the beam, converting to vertical splitting is as easy as pulling a pin. To make yourself even more efficient, this splitter comes standard with NorthStar Wedge Wings, which makes splitting logs 3 times faster than conventional single-blade splitters.
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.
From the very beginning, our goal was simple: Build the best log splitters on the market. The result—NorthStar log splitters outclass the competition in every category: quality, performance, reliability and value. NorthStar has set the standard for over three decades. Professionals and do-it-yourselfers trust the superior quality of NorthStar to get the job done right the first time, every time.
