Meet the RS 728-30-RE

This RS 728-30-RE log splitter delivers impressive power on an elegantly designed platform constructed from commercial-grade materials and components. The horizontal, push-through design utilizes a steel push plate to drive wood against a 2-way blade welded to the end of the solid steel i-beam. When ready to ramp up production, slip on the 4-way blade to crank out four split logs in one powerful stroke.

With this RS 728-30-RE, we truly paired brawn with beauty. Let's start with the hydraulic log lift that easily raises those hefty rounds into the splitting position while a bi-pod support leg provides stability and can fold out of the way when towing. Once a round is split, the extra-wide catcher tray at the blade end keeps logs from dropping to the ground.

This log splitter's power platform features a 420cc Raven electric start engine and a 22 GPM, 2-stage pump.

Fast Cycle Time

3.5" Cylinder Rod3.5" Cylinder Rod

A 3.5" cylinder rod, 3/4" work ports, and 3/4" hoses help to reduce cycle times. No more wasted time between rounds!

Ergonomics & Speed

While RuggedSplit log splitters are engineered to handle the tough stuff, they are also a breeze to operate. The waist-height beam means less bending over and less back strain. The optional work table is covered with a solid steel sheet to slide partial rounds off to the side while you split. There is no need to straddle the wheel and tank to reach the dual valve power-beyond system, which mounts on a platform located up high over the main cylinder. The main cylinder valve has an auto-return detent.

The enormous 3.5" rod makes for a rapid return stroke, reducing overall cycle time. Big, free-flowing 3/4" ports on the cylinder, connected by 3/4-inch hoses to 3/4" ports on the valves, mean no bottlenecks in the hydraulic system.

You can install the dual valves in five different positions onto their platform: 45 or 90-degree angles to either side of the beam or straight down the centerline -- you decide what's best for how you want to operate the splitter.

The RuggedSplit Difference

RuggedSplit log splitters feature commercial-grade design and construction at a price the average homeowner can afford. Precision laser-cut steel; strong, solid welds throughout; and powder coating for long-lasting protection mean our wood splitters will stand the test of time. We only use steel-reinforced hoses, heavy-duty steel fittings, and steel-grade hardware to withstand the high pressures, force, and power our splitters provide. We stand behind our product 100% because we know we have engineered a firewood splitter that you can rely on, cord after cord, season after season.
