Mitox LS40 Electric Log Splitter

Compact and powerful horizontal log splitter

The LS40 electric log splitter is the smallest splitter in the range, but the 1500w electric motor still provides an impressive 4 tonnes of splitting force which is enough to handle most domestic wood splitting tasks. The LS40 horizontal log splitter can safely split wood up to 37cm in length and 25cm wide in seconds - simply depress the two control switches and the reinforced pushblock drives the log into the fixed splitting wedge, slicing it neatly in two. Its compact dimensions make the LS40 ideal where storage or transport space is at a premium and is easily moved around the garden thanks to it’s two large transport wheels.
