The Halverson firewood log processor attachment attaches to a skid-steer loader and picks up logs with forks. It then rolls the record onto an in-feed table, where a high-speed bar saw cuts the log into blocks. The split block then drops into a splitting trough. The log table then moves the record into the next cutting position while the splitting ram enables the machine to work efficiently on logs up to 16 inches in diameter.
In the spring of 2015, A.J. Shaver decided to invest in a firewood processor from Halverson Wood Products, a company based in Minnesota. The processor is attached to a skid-steer, providing power and hydraulics. After purchasing the processor, Shaver decided to start a firewood business.
The Halverson firewood log processor attachment for bobcats and other large farm equipment is ideal for contractors needing large quantities of firewood. It also works well for homeowners who want to sell their firewood in bulk.
SSP-180 Pro Skid Steer Firewood Processor
The SSP-180 Pro Skid Steer firewood processor attachment is easy to operate. It is equipped with eight push buttons connected to the joysticks of your skid steer tractor. It also has a hydraulically adjustable four-way splitter for consistent firewood sizes from logs up to 18 inches in diameter.
Need for a new and improved wood processor attachment for the skid steer loader
A firewood processor is an attachment for skid steer loaders, making it easy to process and stack logs. Logs are picked up with the processor’s forks and moved up the butt plate roller to be processed. Once in position, a high-speed chainsaw activates and cuts the wood into lengths up to 24 inches. This equipment is helpful for firewood businesses, tree services, and recreational activities such as camping and resorts.
A new and improved wood processor attachment for skid-steer loaders has many advantages over its predecessors. The new unit is easy to operate and highly maneuverable and is designed to cut logs to various lengths. It also has multiple attachments and may be attached to different loaders and tractors.
There are two types of skid steer log splitters: cone-style log splitters and traditional log splitters. Each style has its advantages. You can choose the type of splitter that best fits your business. Consider the size and brand of the log splitter before you decide which to buy.
The present invention has a dual hydraulic mechanism that allows the cutting unit to pivot downwards upon the log. The cutting unit is pushed into a wedge to cut a portion of the record. Then, the wedge returns to its starting position automatically. This reduces operator effort and increases productivity.
A traditional skid steer firewood processor can split logs up to three feet in diameter. But a cone-style skid-steer firewood processor is more efficient and can handle larger logs. A cone-style skid-steel firewood processor is a good investment if you operate a commercial firewood operation. The new attachment is relatively expensive but will pay for itself in the long run.
