Free Wood Processor

What is a Free Wood Processor?

A free wood processor is a tool used in the lumber industry to process logs into boards and planks of a specified size. It typically consists of a track, a motorized saw, a power head, and a conveyor belt. The saws can be adjusted to cut to a desired depth and width, allowing the operator to customize the cut. The power head is responsible for driving the saw and moving the log on the track. The conveyor belt transports the processed wood away from the machine. Free wood processors are cost-effective and efficient, making them a popular choice among lumber companies.

A free wood processor can be an excellent investment if you’re looking to make your own furniture or cut down on your wood-cutting bills. These machines are incredibly durable and produce a very high rate of production. Repair frequency is very low because the construction allows for the replacement of the most vulnerable components.


A free wood processor is a device for splitting a log into pieces without the need for an operator’s intervention. It includes a carriage that receives the log and clamps that secure it in place. The carriage then advances along an axis to contact a pair of parallel rotating saw blades. The saw blades operate by pushing cut log pieces onto cradle members that tilt to dump the sections of log alternately on either side of the axis.

This system has a high production rate and relatively low repair frequency. The machine is designed to be modular enough to easily replace the most vulnerable components. It is also aesthetically appealing, with minimal parts. This allows you to use a wood processor for a wide variety of purposes. Moreover, the device is highly durable.


The operation of a free wood processor consists of forcing log sections through a funnel member 22 and onto one of cradles 23a-23f tilted in opposite directions. These cradles feed log sections to splitter devices 24a-24f. Each pair of splitters feeds one log section to the other, and the processor rotates to split the log into two or more sections.

The firewood processor has a hydraulic circuit and works by using the low-pressure portion of the hydraulic circuit. The sequence of operations is shown in FIG. 14. An example of a firewood processor is shown in FIG. 14. The hydraulic circuit of a firewood processor includes a hydraulic cylinder and low pressure portion for processing firewood.

Another aspect of the invention pertains to its safety. The free wood processor is very safe to operate and requires minimal operator involvement. A preferred embodiment of the free wood processor has rotary saws arranged inside a housing. The carriage is inserted into the saw area through a small opening. Once the saw blades have cut the log, a pusher rod moves the cut log pieces along an axis to cradle members. The cradle members tilt so that log sections are dumped alternately on either side of the axis of movement.


When selecting a firewood processor, the safety of your workers should be your first priority. Firewood processors should follow the proper safety procedures to minimize the risk of injuries to employees. They should also provide detailed information regarding WISHA rights. A firewood processor should have an ergonomic design and ergonomic controls to ensure that workers are not injured while operating it.

A preferred embodiment of a wood processor includes a base 12 and operator station, and a set of rotary saw blades. The blades are enclosed within a housing. A carriage is positioned adjacent to the saw blades and is adapted to support a log 20. Opposing pairs of clamps 17a and 17b hold the log in place while the blades are cutting it.


The first benefit of a free wood processor is that it’s completely free. The second advantage is that most people can process their own wood, which is a great way to save money. You can also save time since you don’t have to move the equipment. However, you should be aware that your neighbors might not be pleased about you processing their wood at home.

A firewood processor is a device used for cutting and splitting firewood. It typically has four main parts, each of which performs a specific function. First, logs need to be de-limbed and cut to appropriate lengths. Then, the processor will split the logs into 8 to 12 pieces. The processor is most effective if two people can operate it.
