Product Summary

Play Video

The NorthStar Horizontal Log Splitter with Log Lift gives you premium components and exclusive features that let you save time, increase performance and work effectively. The backbone of this log splitter is an industrial-strength I-beam with heavy plate steel reinforcement. 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. High-speed hubs, torsion axle, 12" wheels with high-speed tires and integrated trailer lights make it easy to get to the worksite. Comes with hydraulic log lift, capable of raising logs up to 340 lbs.

Handles the Toughest Jobs

You'll never have an easier time tackling the toughest splitting jobs than you will with the NorthStar Deluxe Horizontal Log Splitter with Log Lift. 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.

High-Capacity Log Lift

You can always rely on NorthStar — even on the biggest jobs. That's why we gave this log splitter a high-capacity hydraulic-powered log lift. It hoists logs that weigh up to 340 lbs. onto the splitter, making them easy to split. It also makes a convenient staging table for smaller logs.

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 Log Splitter with Log Lift has a two-inch ball coupler, an adjustable leg, plus a high-speed towing package with Ultra-Tow™ Ultra-Pack high-speed hubs, lights, torsion axle, 12in. high-speedtires and fenders 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 GX390 engine on our log splitter. This engine packs a punch.

Superior Engineering

Built to be the Best

At NorthStar, we think 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.

Premium Hydraulic Filtration

We know how much you rely on your equipment working properly. That's why we gave the Horizontal 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.

Fully Equipped

When you get a NorthStar log splitter, you know 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 built-in cradles that center logs on the wedge and prevent them from rolling off the beam.
