CHIPS OFF THE OLD BLOCKS: Wood splitters are custom-made by Power Hound to fit commonly-used machinery and deal with Australian hard woods.

AUSTRALIAN made attachments for skid steers, tractors and mini excavators are offered freight free-to-freight depot by Power Hound.

Power Hound was established to provide attachments for tradesmen, farmers, hobby farmers, landscapers and machinery dealers.

Power Hound also boasts a range of wood splitters which are unique to the market place as they are made in Australia and designed to operate with machinery, such as tractors, skid steers and excavators.

"The excavator and skid steer log splitters are designed to operate from the seat of your machine making it safer and easier to manage, especially your back, as no lifting of heavy logs-wood," Power Hound managing director Steve Thwaites said.

"Designed and made in Australia by ourselves for hard Australian wood.

"The advantage of operating from the seat of your machine is it saves time and money, you can use the splitter as a grab lifting the tree or branch off the ground or off the fence then cutting to the right size to fit your fire place, then from the seat of the machine you pick up the wood and split over a trailer or wood pile saving that time and saving your back."

The wood splitter has a stroke of 60 centimetres, or 2 feet, which is common for most wood heaters; the hydraulic cylinder ram has a 30 tonne capacity which is more than your machine can produce so it comfortably splits all Australian hard wood with ease, Mr Thwaites said.

"The splitter comes with 1.6 metre hydraulic hoses and quick release couplings," he said.

"We custom make the hitch to fit your excavator and also make a universal skid steer hitch which fits most skid steers sold in Australia.

"The Power Hound wood splitter is multi purpose, being a splitter and a grab for your machine.

"The beauty of the Power Hound splitter design is you can comfortably break down a 1 metre-wide tree which normally you cannot get on a traditional splitter, or lift on to any splitter.

"You simply place the splitter over the log roll and split again until you break down the log once again.

"We also have a range of heavy duty, Australian made rock stick buckets ... made with high 350 grade steel large floor to maximise capacity, heavy duty box frame, with skid steer, or tractor hitches."
