Wallenstein 22 Ton SELF-Powered Horizontal / Vertical Log-Splitters

This WXR545PL Self-Powered Horizontal / Vertical Log Splitter from Canadian manufacturer Wallenstein is towable with a 2″ ball hitch, and is self-supporting too.

And more interestingly, it can split in the horizontal position, or you can pull a pin and set it up to split vertically, eliminating the need to lift logs up to the split bed. It also has a third locking position of 20° for a slightly higher working height.

The WXR545PL is powered by a 6.5 hp Vanguard engine and has a 22 Ton Split Capacity, 24″ Split Opening, with a 5s cycle time on a 24″ bed.

This model is fully highway towable with a Torflex Suspension Axle, a foldable trailer hitch, safety chains, highway tires, and full trailer lighting with LED Lights. Lighting kits are factory installed, and equipped with brake lights and turn signals. They use a standard 4-pin connector. Wallenstein even includes mud flaps!

The adjustable ladder hitch and hand-crank jack makes for easy connection to any height trailer hitch.

Utilizing Wallenstein’s Firebolt Technology, the splitter is always at full power thanks to a regenerative valve design.

A stout engine guard prevents damage to the engine from the towing vehicle. A 12″ hitch extension is required to pull behind an ATV.

A 2-Way Wide Wedge is included that pops the log in a short distance. A 4-Way Wedge is an option.

To return the cylinder, just pull back on the lever and it will return to its starting position automatically, and then pop into neutral.

An optional stroke limiter is available to stop the cylinder from fully retracting, reducing your cycle time by almost 50% (for use on shorter logs).

An optional clamp on side-shelf is available to catch your split logs.

All in all this is a very well thought out log splitter with more features than most.

How to Choose the Right Log Splitter:

There are 4 main choices to consider: 

1) TYPE: Do you require an engine-powered model or would you prefer to power it off your tractor or skidsteer? 

2) POWER: Most wood can be split by a 20-ton splitter. However, hardwoods with gnarled, twisted grains, such as those that often grow up along a fence line may require a splitter with a higher splitting force. 

3) ORIENTATION: Vertical 3-point hitch models, inverted skidsteer models and horizontal-vertical woodsplitters are very helpful when the wood being split is too large or heavy to lift onto a log bed. The Log Lifter fitted to some of the WX900 series models is also helpful in this regard. 

4) SPLIT LENGTH: Do you require 24”, 36” or 48” lengths of split wood? If you are interested in a trailer model, consider how much wood you intend to spilt, is it for commercial or rental use, does towed equipment require lights and licensing where you live. If available in your chosen model, a “T”, or Tall version of the splitter can raise the working height to a more comfortable level. The horizontal / vertical splitters can also help in this regard.
