DR Pro XL Rapidfire Log Splitter

DR Pro XL Rapidfire Log Splitter

The top of the line! With splitting power equivalent to a 34-Ton hydraulic splitter, and a blazing cycle time of just 3 seconds, this is the fastest log splitter available anywhere!

One Log, One Second!
Ordinary log splitters are slow…painfully slow. Because they use hydraulics to gradually force a log to split. The DR RapidFire harnesses the power of two massive flywheels and a rack and pinion system to pop logs open at rapid clip. And it's instantly ready to reload. No more waiting...the DR RapidFire will work as fast as you can feed it!

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!

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!
