Kindling Supplier/Kindling Machine Wanted

Hi All,

I am currently working on a project I am hoping to launch in the next month or so..

I would ideally like to purchase a kindla, or kindlett machine, or any machine that will produce a reasonable ammount of kindling for a local supply.

I have been unable to source a machine online that I can afford at the moment and so I'm looking for a wholesale supplier that could supply to Inverness-shire, Scotland.

I've also been keeping an eye open for a good second hand firewood processor, as hand splitting is going to get quite tiresome and time consuming.

If anybody is interested in giving me a price, my e-mail is matthew@highlandforestry.co.uk

Darren..

Would it be worth your while supplying 500 bags or 1000 bags at a time??
I'm not sure how much we are going to sell yet but I envisage buying in a lorry load as a starting point... wonder how much the haulage would be though. I'm based just north of Aviemore.

Re: Kindling Supplier/Kindling Machine Wanted

I think you need to keep looking for a single phase kindlett much more versatile and does round as well as blocks of wood. Saves tying up a tractor especially when you only need a kw or so. And much less noise

Drop in if you are in the area. My wife is the kindling expert. I tried using her machine once but caught my fingers in the lid would not of hurt but she was sat on it shaking her head. Wives seem to work these machines better than us Not sure if we are closer than fuelwood
