The Mitox LS40 Select horizontal electric log splitter is the ideal companion to help take the effort out of splitting logs.  The entry-level wood splitter in the Mitox range, the LS40 is powered by a 1500W motor which packs a powerful punch to deliver up to 4.0 tonnes of splitting force, more than adequate for any domestic wood splitting task.

The long log frame can accommodate wood up to 370mm in length to be split into conveniently-sized logs for the fire. The LS40 features Mitox's Quicksplit return control valve, which enables the user to determine exactly how far the reinforced steel push block returns after each split. Simply set the correct length for fast, efficient splitting, with no waiting around between splits. Safety is ensured thanks to the two-handed operation with handguard which protects your hands during use. The push block returns to its start position when the switch is released. 

Supplied with 5 metres of cable, the compact Mitox LS40 log splitter is equipped with large transport wheels to allow easy manoeuvrability and storage.

Quicksplit Function

The Mitox LS40 wood spltter can split logs up to 37cm in length, however, when splitting shorter logs, Quicksplit saves time by enabling the starting position to be adjusted.

Safe Operation

The two-handed operation with handguard prevents the possibility of the operator's hands being pinched by the splitter. As soon as the switch is released, the pushblock returns to its start position.

Well Balanced

The wide log cradle allows you to easily place logs to be split, holding them in place on the splitting beam. Safety is improved as the operator does not need to hold the log in place during the splitting process.

Reinforced Pushblock

When working with high splitting forces and tough, knotted woods, the sturdy reinforced pushblock provides reliable and durable force without fail.

Easy Transport

The large transport wheels enable the splitter to be effortlessly moved. Work is more efficient when the splitter is moved closer to the wood pile, saving time and effort when splitting large rounds of wood.

Long Cable

All Mitox wood splitters feature long 5 metre power cables as standard, giving more flexibility when finding the perfect working location - even if it isn't right next to the power outlet.
