Log Splitter Hire

Split your winter firewood with powerful hydraulic log splitter hire complete with lifting table. This log splitter will split commercial quantities of firewood easily, quickly and safely.

Log splitter hire with built in safety. A Log splitter can be dangerous.

Dual Hand Controls: keeps BOTH hands away from the dangerous bit of the log splitter so you will still have all your fingers at the end of the hire.
You can only make the splitter head move having a hand on each handle – ie away from the log and splitter.
Horizontal Log Splitter Hire: We do not hire this type of log splitter as when we did we saw some customers come back with bits of their fingers missing. We think your fingers are way more important than the little bit of extra speed they give.

Watch a video so see how easy our log splitter is to use.

(Turn your sound off if you’re at work – we forgot to remove the noise).

Most of our log splitter hire is to the same people each year. They come back every year to hire a log splitter for their winter firewood.
The “busy” time of the year starts in January as the well prepared hire a log splitter on a cool day knowing there’s another few months of hot weather to dry out their logs. The longer the wood can sit after being split the better it will burn.

What is a Weekend?

What is a weekend?

Saturday morning through to Monday morning. If the log splitter is available Friday after 4.00 we’re happy for you to pick it up earlier.  We open at 6.00 Monday for returns – but so long as it’s returned by 7.00 the weekend rate will apply.

What if the log splitter breaks down while we're closed?

Just call the branch you hired from and follow the instructions – someone will answer your call and work out a solution. Most problems with a log splitter are simple and can be fixed over the phone – if not we’ll swap over or arrange another solution.
