Our horizontal splitters can ship on a pallet, or via partial flatbed / hotshot trucking.  If you have a freight terminal near you we can arrange freight to that location.  Or, if a semi truck can get to your address, we can arrange a shipment with liftgate service.  You could also pick up your new machine from the closest Wolfe Ridge dealer. Check out our dealer locator.
Please note: 

  • If you have a machine shipped via partial flatbed or hotshot, you will need a piece of equipment for unloading.  Such as a forklift, tractor or skid steer with pallet forks and sufficient lifting capacity.
  • If you have your machine shipped LTL on a pallet, we can also offer optional liftgate service.  Your new machine would get unloaded at the end of your driveway closest to the road – provided a semi truck can get to your address.

    Excellent splitter! Very well built, plenty of power and good cycle time. Purchased with auto cycle, great for one man operation.
