Wood-Mizer Introduces FS150 Dual Action 20 Ton Log Splitter
By Chase Warner, Wood-Mizer Contributing Author
Wood-Mizer introduces the FS150 dual action 20 ton log splitter designed for homeowners and small landowners looking for an affordable and highly durable American-made log splitter. The FS150 log splitter expands the Wood-Mizer firewood processing equipment range that includes gas powered and skid steer commercial log splitter models.
The FS150 combines a 7HP Kohler gas engine with 20 tons of splitting force to split hardwood and softwood logs up to 24” long. The log table height is 30” from the ground to provide a comfortable working height for the operator and the convenient operator panel features intuitive left/right controls for the log splitting wedge. Once a log is loaded for splitting, the 8 ½” high carbon steel wedge splits wood in both left and right directions for increased speed and efficiency. This unique two-way design can double firewood production compared to traditional one-way wood splitters. During the splitting operation, two side trays catch material for additional splitting or for convenience in handling wood when stacking. Featuring a compact design for easy storage and mobility, the FS150 also includes a standard trailer with a 2” hitch that is towable at speeds up to 45 mph.
