The secret to the Charger’s 8.5 Ton splitting force is its two large spinning flywheels powered by a 1.5kW 240v electric motor that powers the ram using kinetic energy to drive your logs with force into the splitting wedge. This is a very quick and safe way to split many logs in a short period of time.
Two leavers on the top of the Charger are used to operate the ram. Pull one lever to engage the drive, then push the second lever to release the ram. This two leaver operation ensures safe operation. As the machine is powered by a quiet pollution-free electric motor (and not an engine or high-pressure hydraulics) it can safely be used in a shed or outbuilding making it perfect for home use.
