A tool that makes splitting the wood by hand obsolete is definitely log splitter.

Types of log splitter
A log splitter is rated by the tons of splitting pressure or force they generate.
There are certain guidelines when choosing a log splitter to fit your needs.
There are factors to take seriously when choosing the right log splitter for you.
- Diameter of the log
- Seasoned or green wood
- Hardness of the wood
For branches that have the diameter of 15 cm a 4 tons log splitter will suffice. However, logs that have a diameter of 60 cm will need a 20 tons splitting force to be cut, and that’s if the wood is seasoned.
Green wood with the diameter of 60 cm will require a 30 tons log splitter to do the job smoothly.
Hardness of the wood depends on other factors, including the type of wood that you need to cut. Logs can be divided into hardwood and softwood. Simply knowing what type of a log you’re cutting can be helpful, for example if it is oak which is considered to be the hardwood or pine that falls into the softwood category.
