Wood-Mizer introduces the FS150 dual action 20 ton log splitter designed for homeowners and small landowners looking for an affordable and highly durable American-made log splitter. The FS150 log splitter expands the Wood-Mizer firewood processing equipment range that includes gas powered and skid steer commercial log splitter models ranging from $6,995 to $13,995 USD.

Starting at $2,595 USD, the FS150 combines a 7HP Kohler gas engine with 20 tons of splitting force to split hardwood and softwood logs up to 24” long. The log table height is 30” from the ground to provide a comfortable working height for the operator and the convenient operator panel features intuitive left/right controls for the log splitting wedge. Once a log is loaded for splitting, the 8 ½” high carbon steel wedge splits wood in both left and right directions for increased speed and efficiency. This unique two-way design can double firewood production compared to traditional one-way wood splitters. During the splitting operation, two side trays catch material for additional splitting or for convenience in handling wood when stacking.

The Wood-Mizer exclusive Vortex® dust-removal blade profile is now available in DoubleHard high-alloy steel resulting in a more durable blade that delivers up to twice the toughness and sharp life compared to carbon steel blades. Introduced in 2016, Vortex® dust-removal technology was previously an exclusive feature of SilverTip carbon steel material used primarily in high-production resawing operations.

Patent pending and trademarked for its revolutionary design, the Vortex® blade profile creates an extremely unique turbulence that removes sawdust from the cut. With a typical blade, sawdust can remain on the board by spilling out of the smaller gullet while sawing. By reducing the amount of sawdust left on the board, the Vortex® blade minimizes the need for additional sawdust removal after processing. In addition, Vortex® blades can be sharpened by Wood-Mizer’s blade maintenance equipment or ReSharp® blade sharpening service to extend the flex life of the blade and maintain cut quality.

"The Vortex blades leave 80% less sawdust than any other blades I have tried throughout the past 25 years,” said Mark Borneman with Timber Creek Resources in Antigo, Wisconsin. "We have eliminated the need for a deduster on a majority of our jobs.”

The Vortex® blade is now available to order in both SilverTip and DoubleHard material in a variety of widths, thicknesses, and lengths to fit various sawmill and resaw brands and models. Wood-Mizer offers an extensive range of blades with more than 100 combinations based on profile, width, thickness, tooth spacing, and alloy for any type of sawing or resawing application from green softwoods to abrasive hardwoods.
