Woods launches into the firewood processing market

With the introduction of the high-speed Commercial Kinetic Log Splitter, Woods dealers have a new tool available for commercial firewood producers, tree service companies, campgrounds, and landscapers.

“Time is money for the commercial firewood business owner. Our new Woods high speed kinetic log-splitter will split wood six times faster than a conventional hydraulic unit and consume less fuel as well,” according to Scott Baylor, Product Manager for Log Splitters. “We are very excited to be able to add this quality built, high performance log splitter to the array of products we offer our loyal dealers.”

Key features include a 196cc Kohler SH265 Horizontal engine, 2-second cycle time, 32” heavy-duty work table that allows rounds and re-splits to be staged on both sides, flush-mounted beam that doesn’t snag when pulling logs back for re-split, and a patent-pending handle that is designed to absorb energy in the event of a stall.

“The torsion springs in the handle that reduce kickback to the operator, combined with the minimized handle travel distance and actuation force mean that the ergonomics on this unit are second to none,” says Baylor. “We had commercial firewood producers in different parts of the country test units for months at a time, and give feedback. That was critical to the evolution of this design.”
