How to Connect a 3 Line Hydraulic Slasher Saw on a Wood Processor

Connecting a hydraulic slasher saw to a machine in many different ways. The basic setup uses five hydraulic lines:

  1. A pressure/power line that actuates the saw.
  2. A 1” return line that returns hydraulic fluid to the loader.
  3. A 5/8 inch case drain line.

In addition to the five lines, various types of orifices restrict the flow of hydraulic fluid.

Recirculation line 6

The R-60 Circular Slasher Saw is designed with a pendulum swing carriage to ensure smooth cycles and fast cuts. The machine’s powerful Parker piston-type motor is durable and built to last for years. It also features a hydraulic cushion bar stop and a one-turn cam-type chain adjuster. This allows the operator to adjust chain tension without taking the machine off-line.

A hydraulic slasher saw is an essential tool for any wood processor. It is the ideal tool for felling and peeling wood. A peeled log is perfect for a plywood veneer. It also features a plum-bob, a unique tool that uses a lead weight attached to a string. The DL-4400 also has an auto-adjusting feed system that will maintain the highest cutting speed in all conditions.

When cutting a tree, it is essential to remember to follow the safety measures. While using a saw, you should wear a shoulder pad to protect your shoulders and arms. This will prevent any injury or pain from the saw. The shoulder pad should also be made of leather, canvas, or felt.

Check valve 7

Check valve seven on a three-line hydraulic slasher saw on forestry machinery is responsible for regulating the flow of hydraulic fluid to the saw. The valve is usually located on the main hydraulic line that connects the saw to the wood processor. The valve will have two positions, one for a lower hose and one for a top hose. The lower hose connects to the motor return line 2.

To use this device, it must be connected to the hydraulic cylinder on the wood processor. This tool is connected to cylinder 15 through the “T” junction 9. This line supplies hydraulic fluid to saw 5. Cylinder 15 controls the movement of the saw.

The prior art slasher saw assembly uses five hydraulic lines. The first three lines supply hydraulic fluid to the circular saw and actuate it to rotate. The fourth line, the return line, serves as the return line for the hydraulic fluid to raise and lower the saw arm. The fifth line is a case drain line to drain the hydraulic fluid from the motor.

The invention is also related to hydraulic power lines. The story has hydraulic power lines housed within the machine’s frame. These lines convey hydraulic power from the loader to the saw, and hydraulic fluid from the saw to the cylinder. In addition, there is a return line to the motor.

According to the present invention, the wood processor is highly safe. Unlike other types of wood processors, it requires no manual intervention. Moreover, the safety of the processor is enhanced by the fact that it is only started after completing a previous operation. Hence, if any component fails, the machine automatically stops the process.

Another feature of the wood processor is that it can automatically split logs into wedge-shaped pieces that can be used as firewood. The process can be repeated up to three times with a single record. The process takes about seventy seconds per log.

The wood processor in the present invention comprises a saw assembly 25 with five circular saw blades 14. These blades are spaced to be evenly spaced in the cutting process. The log is advanced into the cutting position through an elongated opening 19. The saw blades are effective in cutting the record into shorter sections.

Flow restricting orifices

Flow-restricting orifices are used to control the flow of hydraulic fluid to a three-line hydraulic slasher saw on the wood processor. Typically, the saw has three lines: the first button on the loader controls the flow to the saw, the second button controls the flow to the conveyor, and the third button controls the flow to the saw cyl. The control valves should be pressure compensated to control the lowering rate.

Flow-restricting orifices are located between the “T” junction nine and the loader itself. The orifices create back pressure, which forces hydraulic fluid to flow through line 4. This back pressure is a critical function of our invention.

In addition to the flow-restricting orifices, the hydraulic power lines are configured in a “T” shape, as shown in FIG. 1A. These lines provide hydraulic power to the saw. The hydraulic power lines are connected to a pump in the hydraulic cylinder.

A wood processor can have multiple saws and a single movable saw. Flow-restricting orifices may be necessary to accommodate two logs at the same time. This feature allows the operator to choose a preferred saw configuration by adjusting the pressure of each saw independently. Flow-restricting orifices are also needed when a firewood processor requires more than one log processing.

The wood processor of the present invention is an entirely safe and reliable device. The operator is not required to intervene. The preferred embodiment of the processor includes a carriage for receiving the log. The carriage moves the record along an axis into contact with the parallel rotating saws. The carriage then moves the cut log pieces onto opposing cradle members.

The three-line hydraulic slasher saw on the wood processor has a ram and a longitudinal pusher 21 that forces the cut log sections through a funnel member. The chute pushes the log sections onto cradles 23a-23f, which tilt alternately. These cradles then feed the log section to splitter devices 24a-24f. The splitter devices 24a-f are disposed of on each side of the pusher ram.

FIGS. 4A and 4B show the saw’s assembly according to the invention. The mandrel housing 17 connects to a motor via a ram tied to a hydraulic cylinder. Flow-restricting orifices control the flow rate volume of hydraulic fluid to the saw blades.
