The portek Charger log splitter is a super fast, powerful and portable machine, with build quality you would expect from Portek. With a convenient handle, strong chassis and wheels, the Charger can easily be positioned on any flat ground, ready to start work.
Two large spinning flywheels, powered by a 1.5kw electric motor, drive the powerful ram with a force of 8.5 tonnes. The machine uses kinetic energy to hit your logs with high impact; cutting them quickly and safely. For the release mechanism, two hands are needed. One to engage the drive mechanism, the other to release the ram. The ram springs back in no time at all, ready for the next log. The heavy duty steel guards ensures you are safe from the mechanics – and the safety switch is located next to the handles, for extra fast stopping if required.
