The HS-12L53 is a very powerful, horizontal log splitter of the compact class. It has a real 12 ton gap pressure and a very robust 6.5 HP OHV petrol engine.

With Jansen log splitters, the gap pressure is measured directly on the splitting ax, so that this information also corresponds to the actual gap pressure. 

The max. The length of the split material may be 53 cm.

The splitter is very easy to use. The engine is very easy to start with a pull starter and starts very well even in freezing temperatures.

To make moving easier, there is a drawbar on the device (without ball head mount). The device does not have road approval for operation behind a car. The use behind an agricultural or forestry tractor would be license-free and therefore legal (please observe the traffic regulations -> light, license plate, etc.).

Due to the small overall width of approx. 84 cm, you can also transport the device on a conventional trailer.

We deliver a splitting cross to the splitter with the mounted splitting wedge free of charge, which is simply pushed over the splitting wedge. A change between wedge and cross is done in seconds!

With a riving knife or splitting cross, you can also split thicker logs with larger diameters in one operation. The special thing about this device is that the splitting wedge / splitting cross is fixed and you press the wood against it with the cylinder. If a piece is stuck on the cross, it is usually enough to simply push the next piece! So you can work quickly and efficiently.

The hydraulic system is designed in such a way that the riving knife can be stopped in any position and moved forwards or backwards. The force is always there and the riving knife does not have to be moved back up to the starting position, as is the case with many competing products.

The Jansen HS-12L53 is delivered with a high-quality Kohler engine.
