Firewood Processor. Does this look good?

This looks like a different way to sorting out dragged wood. Is this machine over here. Has anyone used one?

Firewood Processors Chomper Rainier


If you look for the video thread and select what you need.

Is that really cool, with the shear, or is it not really cool, and just very silly?

Re: Firewood Processor. Does this look good?

Thanks for posting that link. I plan to visit the manufacturer when I see mom on Mother's day.

The Simplex PTO version looks good for my 406 Mog at about $14,500. At 3000lbs I am wondering if my mog can carry it on the front. The back is already loaded with a crane and Werner forst equip.

Drying wood in half the time could make it possible for wood to remain on property cutting transport to market weight in half as well.

There is some fantastic US and Canadian equipment but fairly often by the time it was made to meet UK HSE regs it wouldn't be anything like the same machine anymore

Re: Firewood Processor. Does this look good?

Some good ideas there. It would work better in this country if you had infeed conveyor and log deck. I like the way the logs cant fall end on before splitter. Also I bet it could handle the 6" logs everyone seems to want for tiny wood burners. That looks a fair size engine with a fair size price I bet 30k plus.

Small sticks of birch. I would imagine the end product may not look great.
