A Homemade Wood Processor Needs a Hydraulic Grain Loader

Before you buy a wood processor, you may want to know a bit about the machines first. There are many choices out there. Read on to learn more about the SSP-180 Pro, the Hahn HFP160, the Timberwolf PRO-MP, and the Apache Model 300 Japa. All of these tools are powerful and can help you make the job easier. In addition, they are able to split large logs quickly and easily, which makes them an excellent choice for wood processing.

SSP-180 Pro

A homemade hydraulic grain loader is one of the most popular tools for farming. It is easy to build and cost effective, as it only requires a battery and some basic tools. The SSP-180 Pro homemade hydraulic grain loader is capable of a wide range of agricultural tasks. The unit includes the drive train, hydraulics, frame, controls, and a battery for power.

Hahn HFP160

For those looking to make their own firewood and grain, the Hahn HFP160 hydraulic grain loaders can be an excellent solution. With their compact size and versatile capabilities, these machines can process firewood at the point of cutting, splitting, and dumping. The HFP160 is designed for use on a skid steer loader, but some customers are making modifications so that the machine can be used on an excavator. The HFP160 has been in development for over two years and just recently completed a six-month field trial on a commercial woodlot. Despite its small size, the price is on the lower end of the commercial grade firewood processor market.

The HFP160 is not only easy to use, but is highly productive. Rodney Rosetta, the owner of One Man and a Load of Firewood, is using the Hahn HFP160 to increase his productivity. He began by learning how to use the HFP160 over the course of six months, taking advantage of all the available variables.

While the HFP160 is designed for 16″ logs, Rodney has modified his machine to cut logs up to 18″. He sells 14″ lengths and eight-foot logs, while hand cutting twenty-four inch lengths for his model homes. The HFP160 is equipped with eight push buttons and a detachable cable. A hydraulic lift raises the processor six feet off the ground to provide a better view of the process.

The Hahn HFP160 Firewood Pro is a high-production firewood processor. This machine can pick up a log off the ground, cut it into eight-foot pieces, split it into four or six-foot pieces, and place the split pieces on a conveyor belt or on the ground.

Timberwolf PRO-MP

The PRO-MP hydraulic grain loader is a simple live deck, hydraulic winch and chain-run 10ft feed trough. Its hydraulic piston is also equipped for faster setup. Top Roll Clamping System applies even pressure and allows knots to pass through the trough.

This hydraulic grain loader is operated by one operator. Its patented Top Roll system and 4-Way Wedge allows the machine to process logs up to 14′ in diameter. The machine’s fast cycle time is a bonus, as is the 36 HP Yanmar engine. The PRO-MP is also available with a 4 way wedge or a standard hitch.

Apache Model 300 Japa

The Apache Model 300 Japa hydraulic grain loader is a high-quality piece of machinery that can meet a variety of needs. This machine is equipped with a hydraulic outtake, a powered infeed conveyor, and a hydraulic pusher. Other features of this machine include an adjustable knife and a lubrication pump. These features make operating this machine safe and easy. In addition, it features Japa’s “perfect split” technology, which produces a consistent size of firewood regardless of the diameter of the log.

Pilkemaster SMART 2

The Pilkemaster SMART 2 hydraulic grain loading system is a high-speed firewood producer that requires no belt conveyor for log feeding. It processes logs at twice the speed of its predecessor. It also allows logs to be cut and split directly above the big bag or trailer. It also has the capacity to process two logs at one time.

The Pilkemaster SMART firewood processors are fully adjustable to your preferences. They can be attached to a tractor, hydraulic excavator or front loader. The Pilkemaster SMART has a redesigned splitting wedge that automatically centres the split wood.
