BLACK SPLITTERWeighing 400 kg and boasting a maximum torque of 12000 Nm, the Black Splitter S2G wood-splitter attachment fits large excavators and is designed for splitting large timber. The unique rotating threaded cone provides extremely efficient wood-splitting power, regardless of timber type, size and diameter. The two piece chromium-steel cone with replaceable tip measures 300 mm in diameter and is available with two different thread designs: A double helical thread design with a thread pitch of 24 mm for rapid wood penetration or a quadruple helical thread design with a thread pitch of 45 mm for more powerful penetration into the largest and hardest of timber. As with all Black Splitter wood-splitting attachments, the cone can also be used to maneuver and position individual logs before and after splitting.
With a maximum hydraulic oil flow of 240 liters per minute and a maximum pressure of 370 bar, the planetary gear-driven hydraulic motor of the Black Splitter S2G attachment creates extreme torque and power. By design, the diameter of the cone’s base both shields and enables the protective motor housing to follow the cone into the depth of the timber being split without risking damage to the motor. Because of high operating hydraulic oil-pressures, a motor case drain line must be attached to prevent damage to the motor shaft seal due to possible hydraulic oil leakage into the motor casing. The port for the motor case drain line is located behind the adapter flange between the ports for the hydraulic hose connections.
The Black Splitter S2G attachment is a maintenance-free device and is sold with bracket flange, housing, hydraulic motor and cone assembly as a complete unit. Hydraulic hoses are not included. The excavator attachment bracket is also not included due to the wide variety of excavator bracket dimensions. However, an attachment bracket can be readily welded to the bracket flange, which is secured to the attachment housing. Instructions for safe attachment operation and handling are available in English and German.
Black Splitter manufactures the S2G in-house. The S2G has the required European Union (EU) CE designation. The CE marking certifies that the product has met EU health, safety, and environmental standards for consumer safety, before being placed on the market. These devices may be exported for use abroad inside and outside of the EU.
