  1. I have had this problem in the past. It tends to happen more often with timber with a high moisture content. If you make sure there is plenty of air flow around the bags then they should be ok. You may still find a few logs in the middle of the bag with mould. I just put them in a separate bag and a few days later the mould will be gone.
  2. For me using a bench grinder is the way to go. Easy to use, gives a great sharp finish and its quick and easy to use. I have found that there is no need to buy an expensive one. Spend £40 to £60 and you will soon get your money back on the time you save.
  3. They have contacted me, are you happy with the logs?
  4. Got a four way, six way and 8 way splitter. Done around 800 ton.
  5. Selling my hakki pilke 1x42 firewood processor looking for 12k plus V.A.T Only 2 yrs old comes with 3 different splitter knives
  6. Have you had and reliability issues? Hakki dealer is close to me so any issues I have can be dealt with quickly
  7. Thinking of upgrading from a Hakki pilki 42 easy to a 50 any feedback on this machine would be appreciated. Or a similar priced/size machine Thanks in advance
  8. I do have a cone splitter but i do find it can make a bit of a mess of the timber
  9. that is the other option i am looking at. not sure the best way to go at the moment. Got a log grab so its easy for me to just lift full length on to a log splitter
  10. anything over 40 cm up to 70cm
  11. Its for big stuff so it will then go thro my processor
  12. Looking to buy a 3mt horizontal log splitter. Hope to get a tow able engine mounted one. Any recommendations? Thanks
