Product Summary


Play Video

This NorthStar® Horizontal/Vertical Log Splitter is powered by a quality Honda GX160 OHV engine with idle control to split logs up to 25in. long. Features a 2-stage Concentric pump, which decreases cycle time by delivering high flow/low pressure when there is no resistance and low flow/high pressure when cutting through a log. Uses a horizontal shaft engine, engineered for a long life with auto idle/throttle control that also saves fuel and reduces noise. Patented log stripper clears log from retracting wedge. Log cradle prevents split wood from falling onto the ground. Add exclusive NorthStar 4-way wedge wings (#1143, sold separately) and split logs 3 times faster!

Handles the Toughest Jobs

You'll have an easier time tackling the toughest splitting jobs with the NorthStar® 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.

Rugged and Easy to Maneuver

We know that there are times in life when you're going to have to go where the work is. The NorthStar Horizontal/Vertical Log Splitter has a two-inch ball coupler and high-speed tires to make getting to and from the woodpile quick and easy.

Fuel Efficient, High Output Honda Engine

When it comes to small engines, there aren't any names better than Honda. That's why we put a Honda engine on our log splitter. This GX160 packs a punch and has lower noise levels, lower vibration and lower emissions. Its design gives you better fuel economy.

Superior Engineering

Built to be the Best

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.

Fully Equipped

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 a built-in cradle that centers logs on the wedge and prevents 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.
