Rainier Hydraulics’s patented CHOMPER system
If you’re looking for a portable wood processor, consider the Wood Beaver Model 16. This unit is very easy to use and can process logs up to 12 feet in diameter. It’s made by Rainier Hydraulics, one of the leading companies in shear technology, and is equipped with a patented CHOMPER system, which breaks up large logs. The machine is lightweight, weighing only 1,800 pounds, and requires only one operator. It’s also diesel engine-powered, which makes it even more portable.
Bob uses the machine to do various jobs for his home. During the summer, he might cut the grass in the backyard, but in the winter he may make custom planters. This enables Bob to process two to four cords per hour without getting wet. He also uses a Bobcat S175 to move the firewood away from the machine.
Chomper machines are self-powered. They use a 45-horsepower tractor. Rainier Hydraulics offers four self-powered and one pto powered versions. Chomper can handle logs up to 16 inches in diameter. They are equipped with automatic cycles that shear the logs automatically to the correct length. This means Bob can keep his business going.
Bob processes close to 1,000 cords of wood per year. He does custom cutting and also processes semi-truck loads. His one-half ton Ford F15 pickup pulls the Chomper. The mobility of the Chomper is vital to Bob’s success. The Chomper system is built to withstand even the roughest wood conditions.
The apparatus for wood processing according to the present invention comprises a frame and wheels that are rotatably coupled to a trailer. Each wheel is carried by an axle 18. The frame generally comprises a series of steel tubing. The hydraulic pump is coupled to the various operational elements of the apparatus.
The system is extremely safe to use, requiring no operator intervention. The preferred embodiment of the system includes rotary saws enclosed in a housing. Logs are introduced through a small opening in the housing. The carriage then withdraws the logs from the saw area. The next operation starts only when the previous operation has been completed successfully. If any component fails, the entire system is automatically interrupted.
