Mother's Hydraulic Log Splitter

Our crack MOTHER EARTH NEWS research team has designed a powerful, versatile, yet entirely affordable hydraulic log splitter you can build yourself.

Our hydraulic log splitter will do even more in its completely self-powered form. You can latch the hitch to your car or truck and tow the splitter to the trees, where it will either cut wood while still mounted to the hitch, or can be detached and rolled up to the job. Or you can pull the entire cutting assembly away from the chassis to tackle tougher tasks.

The easiest and least expensive way to build and use the hydraulic log splitter is to construct only the three-point tractor mount and the cutting assembly, and let your tractor be the power source .
