Pretty cool, like an arbor press. Looks like a good machine for easy splitting. Comparing it to a 34 ton hyd. splitter is a little silly because a 34 ton machine could push that wood through an 8 way wedge thus outproducing the DR.

Never used one.

Always used the old briggs and straton powered whatever my old man has.


One thing I will say, if you get a splitter, get one that sits higher, IMO I would rather lift the log higher to get it on the splitter then be bent over all day working on a splitter that is only a foot or two off th3e ground.

Or just wait until it freezes and swing a maul. Wood splits so much quicker and faster with a maul, at least if it isn't pine and it is frozen again IMO.

I wonder how much grunt it really has.
We have one thats around a 30 ton and when we run into knots, it will stop it or really bog it down.

How Does a 6 HP engine deliver 28 HP of Splitting Force?

Instead of hydraulics, the DR RapidFire Log Splitter employs our Pulse Power System, consisting of twin 74-lb flywheels, and a commercial grade rack and pinion system.

The two massive flywheels act like a giant battery, but instead of storing electricity, they store mechanical energy. Their spinning weight is a force multiplier, accumulating energy created by the 6 HP engine in between splits, then releasing it in a sudden burst that equates to over 28 HP. Any log is simply overmatched!

Video: See how the RapidFire works!


What's the "tonnage"?

When most of us comparison shop for log splitters, we look to tonnage. And we assume that the higher the tonnage, the more powerful the splitter. With conventional hydraulic splitters increased tonnage compensates for the slow nature of the hydraulic ram. The DR® RapidFire™ is different, and because we've replaced hydraulics with the Pulse Power System, we don't talk in terms of tonnage. The RapidFire™ uses speed and force to split more efficiently. As for sheer power, our promise is simple…it will split any log, guaranteed!
