Title: STONE SPLITTER WITH REDUCED HANDLING FORCE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a stone splitter (1) with two height-adjustable columns (7), a support platform (5) which is arranged between the two columns (7), and a cutter (9) which is arranged above the support platform (5) and is held on the two columns (7). The basic height of the cutter (9) over the support platform (5) can be adjusted by means of the columns (7), and the height of the cutter (9) can be adjusted relative to the set basic height by means of an eccentric (10). The stone splitter also comprises an actuation element (11) which acts on the eccentric (10) in order to adjust the height of the cutter (9). Each of the two columns (7) is equipped with guide means for adjusting the height of the respective column (7). According to the invention, the guide means of the two columns (7) are coupled together such that the guide means can be actuated identically by means of a common handle (18), and the eccentric (10) has a lifting height of less than 7 mm.
