Benefits of Venom log splitters

There are many reasons why Venom log splitters are a great choice. Here are the benefits of these machines.

    • Venom log splitters are built to last. They are made from heavy-duty construction which is able to withstand rigorous use. This makes it an ideal long-term investment because it is sure to outlast other, cheaper alternatives. Particularly, the heavy-duty Venom log splitters such as the 25-ton model.
    • Switch between horizontal and vertical log splitting. Most Venom models are able to offer both splitting options making it easy to tackle logs of all different sizes. They cater to a variety of log sizes and user preferences, making it a versatile and worthwhile investment.
    • Compliance with EU health and safety regulations. Many of the Venom models have optimised safety features such as a two-handled valve operation so that users can operate the machine with the assurance that safety is a top priority.
  • Added design features. Some models have design features that make the log splitter easier to use. For example, the 25-ton has a small working table for split logs and an auto-return valve to significantly reduce the time and effort in log-splitting.
  • A range of splitting forces.  No matter what your needs are, the Venom range has a splitting force that is right for you. Starting at 12 tons and going all the way up to 25 tons, Venom can provide all domestic and commercial users with the right splitting force for their needs.
