Eagle Wood Firewood Processor

The Eaglewood firewood processor is an excellent tool for homeowners looking to save money on their heating bills. It has a wide range of features to help you cut the wood into usable firewood in the shortest amount of time. It features an improved splitter that produces better-looking firewood segments.

Cradles 23a-23f are tilted simultaneously.

As the wood firewood processor cuts the log into shorter pieces, it tilts the cradles simultaneously to dump sections alternately on either side of the axis. The process starts with the carriage’s record, secured by clamps. The carriage then advances the log toward the rotary saw blades. The saws cut the log into pieces, and a pusher rod moves the details along the axis. The pusher rod pushes the cut pieces onto the cradle members, which are tilted simultaneously to dump the cut log sections alternately on either side of the axial log movement.

The cradle assembly 110 includes cradles 23a-23f, each mounted on two longitudinal shafts 111 and 112, spaced transversely. The shaft ends are journaled in bearings 113, carried by a vertical support plate 114. The cradles include an inverted trough 115, which contains a combined mounting and stop block 116.

Once the log is tilted, each section is delivered to a separate splitting device. The cradles can operate individually or in groups. A splitter may work while another log is sawed. With a splitter like this, the split wood is fed simultaneously to two or three splitters.

The hydraulic cylinders 118a and 118b carry a piston rod that pivots the cradles. A hydraulic cylinder 118b also has an eye member. A piston rod 123 associated with cylinder 118a moves a pin 124 attached to the eye member. The abutment shoulder 117 rests upon shaft 111.

The hydraulic ram 95 then pushes individual log sections through the funnel member 22 and into the cradles 23a-23f. The hydraulic splitter then splits these wedges into firewood. This means that a log section can be processed in approximately 70 seconds.

Splitters 24a-24f are located on either side of a log.

To operate the Eaglewood firewood splitter, feed the log into the cradle on either side of the record. The rams advance forward and downward to split the log into wedge-shaped pieces. Splitters can operate simultaneously or in groups. In some instances, the splitter can work while another log is sawed.

When working with firewood, it is essential to keep in mind safety precautions. Splitting wood is dangerous and should be handled with care. Standing in the same area as a splitting log splitter is not a good idea. It can cause eye injuries, foot injuries, or damage to the feet.

The strength of the hydraulic ram is essential to the splitter’s performance. This determines the power of the splitter and the amount of force it needs to split a log. Ideally, a machine with higher pressure will split harder and bigger logs.

There are two types of firewood splitters, hydraulic and manual. Both types are designed to split logs into smaller pieces. The hydraulic type can split logs by exerting up to 30 tons of force on the record. However, the manual uses mechanical leverage to push logs through the blade assembly. Another option is to use a screw log splitter, which drives from a tractor power take-off shaft.

Choosing a suitable log splitter is essential for the success of your firewood project. You should carefully consider the type of wood you plan to split and the size of logs that will be broken. For example, if you want to split aspen wood, you will need a machine with a minimum of 27 tons force.

Log splitters are instrumental pieces of equipment. They transform a potentially hazardous chore into a safe and efficient operation. Log splitters can also help you move logs from one location to another. The splitters can be controlled remotely and load the records directly into trucks, trailers, or bulk bags.

Cradles 23c-23f are located on either side of a log.

The Eaglewood firewood processor comprises a pusher ram 95 positioned longitudinally within a base 12. The ram forces the cut log sections through funnel member 22 and onto the cradles 23a-23f, which tilt in opposite directions. The cradles then feed the log sections to the splitter units 24a-24f. The splitter devices are disposed at varying distances from the ram 21 and effectively split each previously sawed log section into wedge-shaped pieces of firewood.

A cradle 23c-23f on either side of a log allows for a high production rate. The preferred form of the processor can process up to 10 cords per hour. It is also completely automatic and requires little to no workforce.

Once the cradles are in position, a telescoping cylinder 15 moves toward the saw blade 14 to begin cutting. The carriage then retracts to its original position. Afterward, the feed ram and carriage move the cut log sections along an axis. A conveyor supports both cradles.

The cradles are attached to shaft 112 using a set screw. The shafts are connected via a pressure line 179. The cradles move inwards and upwards.

The logs are stacked on a log deck and pulled into a log trough during the splitting process. The records are sawn using a hydraulically operated chainsaw harvester bar, a large circular saw blade or a guillotine splitter. These splitters also split wood as it is cut.

cradles 23f

The Eaglewood firewood processor cradles are designed to process logs and displace them into splitter devices. These devices may operate separately or in groups. They effectively split each previously sawed length of log 20 into wedge-shaped firewood. The two primary splitter devices are on either side of the pusher ram.

The two cradles are connected to a pressure line 179. This line feeds pressure to cylinders 118a and 118b. They are also connected to the tilt cradles 23a-23f. When pressure line 179 is energized, pressure from the valve supplies the two cylinders.

The first pair of splitters is fully advanced and splits the firewood. The second pair is refined to divide log sections. Once the splitting action is complete, the third pair is retracted. This process takes about 70 seconds per eight-foot log section. This means a log can be split into 36 firewood pieces in a single pass.

The cradle assembly 110 is similar to the one shown in FIGS. 2 and 3. Cradles 23a-23f are mounted on two longitudinal shafts, 111 and 112, spaced transversely. The shafts extend through the cradles, and the ends are journaled in bearings 115, carried by a vertical support plate 114. The cradles also include a combined mounting and stop block 116.

The preferred embodiment of the wood processor is shown in FIGS. 1-3. The processor includes an operator station and a base 12. The base 12 is adapted to hold various processor components. A housing 13 contains several parallel rotating saw blades, and a pusher rod moves the cut log pieces along the axis. The pusher rod then moves the cut log pieces onto cradle members. The cradle members tilt in opposite directions to dump the log sections alternately.
