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 a massive flywheel and a rack and pinion system to pop logs open at a rapid clip. And it's instantly ready to reload. No more waiting...the DR RapidFire will work as fast as you can feed it!
Kinetic Log Splitting
Instead of hydraulics, the DR RapidFire Log Splitter uses kinetic energy. Our unique Pulse Power System—consisting of a massive flywheel (weighing 55 lbs.), and a commercial grade rack and pinion system—is the source of the power and the speed that makes the Rapid-Fire the fastest log splitter available.
The massive flywheel acts like a giant battery, but instead of storing electricity, it stores mechanical energy. Its spinning weight is a force multiplier, accumulating energy created by the engine in between splits, then releasing it in a sudden burst. 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. Our testing has consistently shown that the PREMIER model will easily out-split any conventional 22-Ton hydraulic splitter. And it will do it a whole lot faster!
