Echo Bear Cat’s new LS22 log splitter is powered by a 169-cc Subaru SP170 engine, which features easy recoil starting and better cold-weather starting performance. It’s shipped with the 4-gallon hydraulic system filled with Dexron III-rated Automatic Transmission Fluid, which provides ease of operation on components in cold weather conditions. Storing the LS22 is easy and compact with the fold-up trailer tongue. The new model has a 30-inch bed height, giving the user a comfortable operating position, while decreasing physical effort and maximizing efficiency. It can be used in the horizontal or vertical positions and comes with an engine guard plate and log stripper plate as standard equipment. The wide end plate increases stability when operating the LS22 in the vertical position. “We wanted to make sure the operator feels comfortable and safe when running the machine,” said Jory Skalsky, design engineer. “With the 30-inch bed height and new standard features, operators should find operation simple and easy.” The LS22 is available with a range of options and kits to design a custom machine to fit consumer needs.
