Toro introduces the all-new log splitter to its rental product lineup. Combining durability, precision and reliability, this new machine is ideal for any log-splitting job — large or small.
Powered by a Honda GX270 engine, the Toro log splitter provides high levels of productivity and jobsite efficiency. This heavy-duty unit has a 22-ton cutting force that can easily split even the toughest logs. Featuring a 12-second cycle time, the 9-inch solid-steel wedge allows for a rapid and clean cut every time.
“The new Toro log splitter was designed with a strong focus on the overall operator experience,” says Sean O’Halloran, marketing manager at Toro. “Its extremely durable design makes it an ideal addition to our lineup. This intuitive and easy-to-use unit is sure to make quick work of any splitting job, while being backed by the durability and support that Toro is known for.”
In terms of productivity, the new unit boasts a dual wheel jack to assist in maneuverability over difficult terrain. Additionally, the unit can be operated horizontally or vertically for greater flexibility, and an intuitive control lever simplifies operation.
The log splitter also comes with a variety of standard features, including amber front and rear tail lights to meet U.S. and Canadian towing standards, as well as added tail light protection. A heavy-duty-catch assembly and durable fenders protect the machine during use and help reduce replacement part costs. An adjustable swing-away towing jack with dual pneumatic tires allows for simple transport even in remote areas.
The log splitter will begin shipping in summer 2017.
