You have several options if you are looking for a wood processor for your Kubota tractor. You can choose the S2X 800, Halverson HWP 140B, or Japa 365+ Pro. The Japa is one of the most potent options on the market, and it has a long list of features. It also boasts excellent uptime and high output. A short-throw joystick helps you operate the processor.
The S2X 800 wood processor for the front end of a Kubota tractor was designed to improve the firewood processing operation of contractors and landscapers. It replaces a four-way log splitter that requires two operators to process each log. Its front-end quartering and feeding capabilities produce cleaner records that are easier to split.
Bill Mollard, the owner of Timberline Landscape Care in Davis, West Virginia, recently became a dealer of the Black Splitter S2X 800 wood processor for the front end of Kubota tractors. This German-made tool allows an operator to split large timbers without leaving the tractor’s cab. Timberline has serviced commercial and residential customers for eight years in a heavily forested area near Blackwater Falls State Park.
