Chop-chop! Fast and Powerful Log Splitters

Portek Quik-Split 7

Get your hands on the fastest log-splitter on the market today… at Truro Tractors Chacewater.

Watch the Quick-Split 7 in action

The QuikSplit is a super fast, powerful and portable machine, with a build quality you expect from Portek.

Portek Quick Split 7

With a convenient handle, strong chassis and wheels, the QuikSplit can easily be positioned on any flat ground, ready to start work. Two large spinning flywheels, powered by a 1.5kw electric motor, drive the powerful ram with a force of 7 tonnes. The machine uses kinetic energy to hit your logs with high impact; cutting them quickly and safely.

For the release mechanism, 2 hands are needed. One to engage the drive mechanism, the other to release the ram. The ram springs back in no time at all, ready for the next log. The heavy duty steel guards ensures you are safe from the mechanics – and the safety switch is located next to the handles, for extra fast stopping if required.

Handy THPL – 6 – Plus

Of course, it you don’t need so much power, the more modest 6 ton, hydraulic log splitter from Handy may be more up your street.

The Handy THLS-6-PLUS Log Splitter comes complete with a stand that brings the machine to waist height, making the task of log splitting even less stressful. It has a 2200 watt electric motor, is compact enough to be stored easily in either your shed or garage.

With its 6 ton capacity, this log splitter has been designed and manufactured to quickly and easily split logs, a great timesaver. You can split your logs safely due to the two-handed operation, and the log splitter has been mounted on wheels and features a pull handle enabling easy transport, when you need to move it to your work area.

Autumn leaves – Beautiful, but back-breaking

Making Light Work of Leaves

“Leaves covered pavement like soggy cereal,” wrote Patricia Cornwell in her novel The Body Farm, and whilst autumn is a magical season of soft russet and saffron shades on a changing landscape, it does create work for the gardener.

Draper Leaf Rakes

Extra-wide Draper leaf rake
Extra-wide Draper leaf rake £13.20

Truro Tractors has a range of tools to make your job easier.  Starting at the small end of the scale, choose from a selection of leaf rakes. The Draper Garden Leaf Rake comes in two sizes: large 550mm (£5.70), and extra wide 700mm (£13.20 – pictured).

The large rake has a 23-tooth head, whilst the extra wide model has 30 teeth. Both tools have comfortable handles of varnished natural wood; and heads made from strong, flexible plastic, and make raking the grass much easier and quicker.

Darlac Rake ‘n’ Shift

Take a new look at grounds maintenance with the Darlac Rake ‘n’ Shift innovation.

Amazingly lightweight with a long handle to eliminate backache – the large model also has a curved handle to assist use with larger loads. Use as a standard rake for leaves, grass cuttings, clippings etc, then turn over and shovel up.

Honda Cordless Leaf Blower

If you have a bit more ground to cover, you might be interested in the Honda HHBE81 BE Cordless Blower.  This attachment is powered by the 56v lithium-ion battery, and provides 120mph maximum air speed.  Its quiet, lightweight, compact, and operates for up to 30 minutes, (on a 4A battery), making easy work of a back-breaking job, with-out the inconvenience of an electric cable!

You will need to purchase a battery and charger for this product (if you do not already own them).  The battery and charger are available separately, at the price of £185 and £50 respectively, from Truro Tractors – your local Honda Authorised Dealer.

Portek Shred n Vac

The Shred n Vac can be used on any surface.  The powerful 1200W motor sucks up leaves and other garden debris into a large, (but easy to empty), 25 litre waste bag.

Debris is shredded to make mulch.

The machine light and easy to use, and is also height adjustable to make it even easier to manoeuvre.

Celebrating William Morris

Beautiful gardening gloves, featuring prints by William Morris.

William Morris 1834-1896

Google is marking the anniversary of the birth of Victorian textile designer William Morris, with one  of it’s celebrated Google Doodles.  Morris was more than just a designer:  he  was also a poet, philosopher and political theorist.


Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.

Morris saw the beauty of repetition, symmetry and simplification in design. His textiles represented nature and the organic world around him.

The garden company Briers, brings together these colourful, floral prints with a range of their quality garden tools and accessories in their William Morris Range.  The Strawberry Thief Collection has received fantastic industry recognition – having succeeded in being nominated as a finalist in the Brand & Lifestyle Licensing Awards 2016 (winner to be announced on April 20th).

At Truro Tractors, you can get your hand on Briers gardening gloves with either the muted greens of the May Morris’ Honeysuckle print designed in 1883; or the indigo shades of Edward Morris’ famous Strawberry Thief design, inspired by a thrush he watched stealing fruit from his kitchen garden in Oxford.  Both pairs are available in store at the Chacewater branch of Truro Tractors, or in the on-line store for the low price of £9 (RRP £12.99)
