A firewood processor is a sensible purchase for anyone who wants to efficiently harvest firewood, whether they are a firewood collector, supplier or private forest owner. Used firewood harvesters can be found here cheaply to save having to rent out the machines out at an expensive rate or purchase them new.These days, firewood production with a firewood processor is a safer and more effective method compared to the manual production of wood.Firewood processors (also called firewood harvesters) turn tree trunks up to eight meters in length into firewood.In the firewood harvester, the saw blade cuts the timber to the required length.Cut pieces of timber are then taken in to a splitting chute which takes them along a conveyor belt for further processing.Here, depending on the model, you can choose between different split-cutting options (2, 4, 6, 8, 12 or 16 pieces).
When it comes to the firewood processors, various models and sizes are available. Normally logs with a diameter of 10 to 45cm will be processed. The latest machines can cut tree trunks up to 80cm.The woodcut length is also adjustable.Firewood harvesters operate using either a petrol or diesel motor or they are driven through the power take-off shaft of your vehicle.If driven via the power take-off shaft, the tractor should have a minimum power of 35kW.New saw machines, for example those made by Hakki Pilke, are fitted with a wood chipping cutting system and a standard shavings extraction system to process logs effectively and impeccably.Modern saw and splitter machines perform outstandingly, an advancement in forestry technology as they produce as much wood in as short a time as possible.To make the operation even more efficient, many manufacturers offer accessories such as a chain-belt, wood storage bay or combi deck in addition to the firewood saw machines.
