“Earthquake has designed and manufactured electric log splitters for more than a decade,” Noah Marach, project manager for Earthquake, the lawn and garden division of Ardisam, Inc. said in a statement. “For wholesalers and retailers looking to expand their product offerings in this category, our 5-Ton Electric Log Splitter delivers power, proven performance and new convenience features in a compact, user-friendly machine.”

In April, Kubota announced a new series of compact tractors. The B01 series includes B2301, a 20.9-horsepower tractor, and B2601, a 24.3-horsepower tractor, that can be modified with various attachments.

Both models feature Goodyear R14T crossover tires, liquid-cooled engines and a three-range hydrostatic transmission.

“The B01 Series pays tribute to Kubota’s long history of delivering quality and value to our compact tractor customers,” Jacob Sherman, Kubota product manager for compact tractors, said in a statement. “This new Series is the essence of flexibility and ease-of-use, with many features such as the Swift-Tach front-end loaders with one-lever quick coupler, and drive-over mid-mount mower decks. This series truly offers a compact tractor that can handle real work, every day, easily and effortlessly.”

The tractors can also be fitted with Kubota’s landscape rake, post hole digger, rear-mount snow blower and BH70 backhoe.
