  • What is the price for the firewood processor, can it be delivered?
    Please contact us for a customized, non-binding offer. We deliver our machines throughout Europe.
  • How is the firewood processor delivered?
    In order to save our customers high shipping costs, the firewood processor is delivered partially assembled. This means that the complicated parts such as the engine, hydraulics, etc. are already assembled. Both conveyor belts, as well as the axle and cladding parts, still need to be attached. Detailed assembly instructions with pictures for each step are included with your order. With two people, the assembly takes about 5 hours.
  • Do I have a guarantee on the machine?
    Of course, as a private customer you receive a 2-year warranty on all machines and as a business customer you receive a 1-year warranty.
  • Can I inspect and test the machines?
    Please feel free to contact us, we are sure to have a customer or dealer in your area. Otherwise, the machine can also be tested directly at our company by appointment.
  • Where can I get spare parts?
    We have all spare parts in stock and these can be ordered quickly and easily via our website. The required parts will reach the customer within 3 working days. Care was taken to ensure that as many standard parts as possible were used in the machine. This means that many spare parts can also be purchased from local dealers.
  • Would you recommend a chain table or log lifter to make work easier?
    If a log lifter or chain conveyor is used, logs with a length of over 5 m can be processed (in the basic configuration a maximum log length of 2 m is possible). If you have a crane, loader, forklift or similar, we would recommend the chain conveyor. This allows multiple logs to be loaded at the same time, eliminating the need to lift each log individually. The log lifter and the chain conveyor cannot be used at the same time.
  • Is a combination of drive types possible?
    Yes, the version with a petrol engine or electric motor can be combined with a PTO drive.
  • What is included in the basic equipment?
    The basic equipment of the firewood processor includes: - Infeed conveyor belt - Pivoting ejection conveyor belt - 4-way splitting wedge - Firewood sieve
  • Which hydraulic oil is needed and how much?
    40l hlp 46 hydraulic oil is required.
  • Is the version with a pivot drive identical in construction?
    No, the PTO version has no chassis and is mounted directly on the three-point linkage. Furthermore, the PTO variant uses an intake chain instead of the conveyor belt.
