BLACK SPLITTERThe Black Splitter S2, S2X and SG1 wood splitter attachments are designed to fit all models of excavators. The unique rotating threaded cone provides extremely efficient wood-splitting power for various timber types including hard, soft, straight, twisted, stumps and roots. The two piece chromiumsteel cone with replaceable tip has a double helical thread design with a thread pitch of 24 mm for rapid penetration into the hardest of timber. The cone can also be used to maneuver and position individual logs before and after splitting, which the powerful grapple arms of the SG1 – each boasting 3500 kg of compressive force – make particularly easy to do.
The SG1 attachment is available with two motors (630 and 800) and is distinguished by its pincersshaped grapple, which permits the excavator operator to gather, split and collect timber with this single attachment. The SG1 requires two auxiliary control circuits but can be manufactured to accommodate excavators equipped with only one auxiliary control circuit. For such excavators, a special system can also be incorporated into the SG1 manufacture to enable wood-splitting threaded cone operation within the grapple’s grasp.
All Black Splitter attachments are sold with bracket flange, housing, hydraulic motor and cone assembly as complete units. Hydraulic hoses are not included. Excavator attachment brackets are also not included due to the wide variety of excavator bracket dimensions. However, attachment brackets can be readily welded to the bracket flange, which is bolted to the attachment housing. Instructions for safe attachment operation and handling are available in English and German.
