The manufacturer of the cord king firewood processor claims they build the fastest portable firewood processors. The cycle time for cutting and splitting is four seconds. These firewood machines come from Ottawa, Canada and are claimed to be North America’s first commercial firewood processors.
Cord King firewood processors use a circular cutoff saw instead of the more common chainsaws. The manufacturer claims the blade will cut around 1500 cords before the blade needs to be sharpened. Sharpening takes about 20 minutes with a simple sharpening tool. They did not mention how clean or dirty the logs were to get that 1500 cords.
They offer several options for a power plant including a John Deer diesel engine. Many of the components are “off the shelf” parts that are readily available from many sources.
These firewood processors can be custom built and come with a 2 year warranty.
