Hycrack Log Splitters – Hycrack Splitter Review
Hycrack log splitters are screw type splitters made in Britain designed to be powered by a tractor PTO. A screw splitter is a large screw cone that spins. You shove a piece of wood into the cone and it screws itself into the wood and wedges it apart. Hycrack splitters are similar to unicorn splitters but since they are mounted to a secure work table they claim they are less dangerous. I still wouldn’t want to get a sleeve or any body part or clothing caught up in one.
The manufacturer claims these splitters are faster than many other log splitters since they don’t have a ram to wait for. I have never used one of these type of splitters but I am interested in hearing about anyone’s experience with them. Watch the video below of one in action and judge for yourself.
