The scheppach Compact 8t log splitter is a powerful and reliable helper for processing logs into firewood comfortably, quickly, safely and power-saving. With the powerful 3500 watt motor and a splitting force of 7.95 tonnes, even dry hardwood can be split effortlessly.

Thanks to a patented splitting technology, the scheppach Compact 8t is the only log splitter in Europe that can split under 8 tons of metre-long wood with a length of up to 1070 mm and a diameter of 80 to 350 mm. With the integrated, swivelling table, two working heights are available: logs with maximum length are placed on the base plate and can thus be processed at ground level. Smaller logs are simply placed on the raised table for processing.

The large splitting wedge measuring 160 x 70 mm splits hardwood and softwood effortlessly. Thanks to the Vario system, the splitting stroke can also be infinitely adjusted. The scheppach log splitter requires a 400 volt power connection for operation and is therefore particularly powerful.

When handling heavy equipment, maximum safety for the user is a basic requirement: the Compact 8t consists of a torsion-resistant, powder-coated steel construction and has both a splitting material fixing device and splitting material catching bars placed on both sides. The unit can only be operated with two hands. The GS-certified log splitter therefore complies with the latest safety standards.

The Compact 8t from scheppach has a compact design and, with a machine height of only 99 cm, is particularly easy to store when retracted.

A tare weight of 126 kg and an integrated anti-tipper ensure that the log splitter always stands securely. Thanks to the two large transport wheels, the Compact 8t is still easy to transport.
