Wood splitters 27t 111cm

with maximum splitting force for continuous commercial use

The HMG meter log splitter of the HSP 27M series is equipped with maximum splitting power in order to be able to effortlessly process meter logs up to 111 cm in length. With a splitting force of 27t, maximum and permanent splitting performance can be obtained. The robust and welded construction ensures maximum stability. An effective and easy-to-use two-hand control enables simultaneous HOLDING and SPLITTING without having to fix the wood separately.

A robust and welded steel construction ensures maximum stability. All HMG wood splitters are powder-coated and go through a complex process (sandblasting, immersion baths, priming) before painting.
An effective and easy-to-use manual control enables simultaneous HOLDING and SPLITTING without having to fix the wood with an aid. With the left control lever, which is guided on a ball bearing, the wood can be held from above, regardless of whether it is knotty, crooked, thick or thin wood. The piece of wood can still be brought into the correct position by pushing it. The knife is controlled with the right control lever (position I at normal speed but with full power and in position II at maximum speed but with reduced power). As soon as the control lever is released, the knife automatically moves back into its position (you do not have to start moving back separately) and you can immediately take care of the next piece of wood.

A mechanical lifting device connected to the knife by a steel chain helps to set up heavy wood. If the knife is moved downwards, the lifting device is lowered with it and by pulling a lever the device can be stopped in any position, which makes it much easier to use wood. By gently pressing the control lever, the blockage is released and the knife moves up and sets the wood up. An adjustable lever can be used to decide whether the lifter should stop permanently and serve as a deposit, or whether it should pivot back down so that the next log can be set up. In the case of electrically powered log splitters, there is also an anti-tip device so that the device cannot tip over to the side when lifting a heavy log.
For even more performance, the stroke of the knife can be continuously limited, thereby avoiding unnecessary strokes. The required height and depth of the lifting range can be quickly set using simple screws.

After the splitting process, a sturdy bracket catches the split wood and, thanks to its design, even shorter pieces of wood cannot fall over. If the bracket should interfere with the wood assembly, it can simply be swiveled upwards. The massive, continuous bracket prevents the bracket from bending. For safe transport, the bracket is swiveled up and moved inwards into a system where it stays safely.
High-quality brass on the splitting knife are not only very stable and more resistant to high loads than plastic guides, but also have excellent sliding properties. In addition, they don’t wear out as quickly because the knife rail is made of special steel and not of coarse steel, such as a T-beam.
The 29cm long knife is made of special steel (Hardox) and shaped in such a way that the resistance decreases shortly after splitting, which ensures even more performance.

The cylinder can be lowered quickly, making it easier to transport. To do this, the knife is moved down against an end stop (no piece of wood has to be placed underneath), the cylinder fork is pulled out and the cylinder is lowered. In the lowered state, the cylinder is secured by a fixing ring and thus protected against beating back and forth during transport.
For a quieter hydraulic pump, a maintenance-friendly industrial pump is installed as standard in the HSP 17M, HSP 22M, HSP 27M and HSP 19ML series. In the HSP 11M and HSP 14M series – which are mainly used in the private sector with smaller tractors – a hydraulic pump with gear attachment is installed.
The smooth-running and powerful electric motor, which runs at only 1400 rpm, is equipped with a switch-plug combination, motor protection and phase inverter. A rubber coupling between the electric motor and the hydraulic pump protects the pump shaft from damage or leaks. A bellhousing keeps heat build-up between the engine and the hydraulic pump apart.
For the longevity of the hydraulic system, a very fine oil filter is built in, which filters the smallest dirt particles and thus avoids deposits that could later lead to damage. An oil and filter change can be carried out quickly and easily using a drain plug on the oil tank and by opening the cover on the filter housing.


An adjustable three-point suspension for CAT I and II and a large transport hook are standard, even with purely electrically powered devices. Two support feet at the rear of the machine prevent it from tipping backwards. If necessary, these can be exchanged for various available chassis variants.
The electric motor and PTO are installed in a vertical and narrow position, which protects against damage during transport in the forest.


Subsequent retrofitting of structural components is possible at any time due to the modular system (e.g. electric motor for PTO drive, cable winch HSW 500 and much more)
