Harness Up to 28 HP of Splitting Force!
How Do Our Splitters Deliver Up to 28 Horsepower of Splitting Force?
Instead of hydraulics, the DR RapidFire Log Splitter employs our Pulse Power System, consisting of twin 74-lb flywheels (PRO-XL Model) and a commercial grade rack and pinion system.
The two massive flywheels act like a giant battery, but instead of storing 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 PRO-XL's 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!
