Palax KS43 Firewood Processor not fast enough

Recommended Posts

Hi, this topic may have already been covered but cannot find it! 

 

I have a 2011 Palax KS43 firewood processor, now powered by a generator (used to use a tractor PTO). The chainsaw is very slow, even slower that what a petrol chainsaw cuts at. We have new chains, tried new bars, the speed of the chain can be speed up and down, although this makes no difference. We are cutting Wattle, which is a hard wood and semi dry. On a log say 30cm diameter, can take 7-10 seconds to cut, and on a log around 40cm diameter it can take around 15 seconds! Shouldn't it only take about 3-4, maybe 5 seconds max? Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
