New kid on the chopping block

Recommended Posts

HI WOOD how much was it thanks jon :thumbup:

 

They start at £7600 for the 12.5 ton semi automatic and go up to £11500 for the fully automatic 25 ton. Mobile version ads 2k and diesel engine ads 2k

 

Considering the build quality ie it was built like a tank I thought it was well priced.

The guy on the stand said that that spec, with a diesel engine and an electric engine, comes in at 14k plus the vat. I spoke to Riko and they wanted 10k plus the vat for a WP36. I couldnt belive how cheap it was, considering it is specced to cut a 450mm log, but i think you could get a bigger one in there. Shame it wasn't running would of loved a go.

Shame it was not better set up as mobile unit. No log lifter and this machine was high plus the sawdust chute went out straight on the wheel. Other oddities was it appeared you had to undo 8 bolts every time you want to change the blade which could be pretty tiresome. Basically a static unit plonked on a trailer.

Looks well built...but heavy!!! My WP36 is so easy to move around when on site, and does a great job!

 

Agreed but would you not like a slightly tougher version? I don't think this one is yet a replacement for the Farmi but with some R&D it might be. Thought it a lot of machine for the money and if I was after a static machine this would be on the short list.

It's nearly 2 ton, so nice and heavy! Like it's been said to get A log on that is at the c picty to cut would be hard for most people. And after watching and comparing videos, the split speed seems pretty slow compared to some of the others out there.

I'm looking at a mobile processor, but the wp36 will probably win my vote
