With the log splitter, chopping trees is done efficiently, quickly and safely. With it, you do woodwork for sauna and fireplace heating or cooking needs easier and more relaxed than with an axe. A log splitter is a handy tool, especially for larger woodwork, if you need a large number of appropriately sized clappers at once. Log splitters are well protected, but as with all woodworking, it is still recommended to be careful and wear gloves to protect against sticks coming off the trees. Compared to an ax, using a log splitter does not require the same amount of force, and even for a first-timer, chopping trees goes smoothly.
