DR Power Equipment Introduces The FASTEST Log Splitter on the Market

New DR RapidFire Log Splitters reinvent splitting fire wood with speed and power!  

DR Power Equipment has threatened to make ordinary hydraulic log splitters obsolete with the brand new DR®RapidFire™ Log Splitter. DR technology has eliminated the big drawbacks of hydraulic log splitters. Now there’s no messy hydraulic fluid to spill or replace.  DR®RapidFire™ Log Splitters have lower maintenance and operation costs, than slow hydraulic splitters. Most importantly, DR has achieved dramatic increases in speed and productivity.  

The groundbreaking DR®RapidFire™ log splitters replace hydraulics with a powerful rack and pinion system that delivers overwhelming speed and power to the task of splitting logs. The engine spins two 74 pound, cast iron flywheels to generate and store tremendous energy that is unleashed in a sudden burst, hurtling the log into the splitting wedge. The RapidFire will split a log in one second, then automatically return to its starting position, in a total of just three seconds, making it the fastest log splitter on the market—up to six times faster than conventional hydraulic splitters. The RapidFire model is available with manual- and electric-starting. DR also offers an optional steel work table for the RapidFire, which expands the work surface to keep split wood within easy reach for re-splitting or stacking.

Pricing and Warranties:  

DR®RapidFire™ Log Splitters start at $2,295, with special introductory discounts.

DR offers their standard 6-Month Hands-On Trial, but as an introductory offer that period is being doubled through the end of 2011…meaning a customer has a full year to try a DR®RapidFire™ Log Splitters on their own property. If they’re not 100% satisfied within one year of the ship date, for any reason, they’ll get a complete refund, less shipping and handling.

As with all DR® power equipment products, the new Log Splitters are the culmination of hundreds of hours of engineering and rigorous comparison testing.

In addition to the product trial period, DR® Power Equipment also offers a two year commercial warranty on RapidFire™ models
