Skid Steer Log Splitter Buying Guide

How to Pick the Perfect Skid Steer Log Splitter

Log Splitter Product Expert

If you own a skid steer (also known as a Bobcat or loader) you already know it's a versatile tool.

What you may not realize is just how versatile it really is.

With a skid steer log splitter, you can harness the power of your machine to make short work of big logs.

This style of splitter is popular among contractors, farmers and owners of large properties.

Splitter Style
Several styles are available. There are horizontal units that work like a standard log splitter, but someone still has to lift logs onto the beam.

Skid Steer Log Splitter"Upside down" splitters are very popular because you position the splitter over the log you want to split and engage the hydraulics right from the cab. Then you can move the loader on to the next log without ever setting foot on the ground.

The best of both worlds is found in a "flip-flop" splitter. It works in both right-side up and up-side down positions.

Changing between positions can be done in just a few minutes, letting you turn a heap of tree trunks into a tidy woodpile quickly and efficiently.

Save Time & Energy
Giant log SplitterWho wouldn't want to get more work done in less time, without having to work as much? Well that's exactly what skid steer log splitters can do for you.

Instead of wrangling large logs to position them for your splitter, skid steer splitters allow you to work from the comfort of your loader's seat. This allows you to split larger logs because you won't have to lift or reposition them.

However, if you're primarily splitting small-diameter logs, you may want to stick with a standard log splitter. While skid steer splitters are great for maneuvering and splitting large, very heavy logs, they're overkill for smaller stuff that can be moved by hand.
