It is designed for contractors, who process logs from trees of extremely varying diameter.

The KS 45s is able to chop logs with a diameter up to 45 cm. It stands out from its contenders by its pulling log clamp, and the dropping plate, which directs the truncated logs in the correct position to the splitting wedge. Sometimes even a professional needs relief: The all-hydraulic joystick control of the KS 45s makes the working effortless, and a fully opening, protective net makes the maintenance easier. The KS 45s comes with an efficient crosscut sawbar of 20”. The splitting operation begins immediately after the log has been cut off. The machine has a patented three-speed-cylinder, which speeds up the processing of smaller logs.

The KS 45s does not yield – no matter how heavy the load. The force of up to 16 tonnes is sufficient for even large logs. The contract work is finalised by the hydraulically driven 4.3-m long discharge conveyor that takes the ready firewood into bags or onto a pallet.

Because the Palax firewood processors are always delivered ready-assembled, they are quick and easy to put into operation. The in-feed conveyors and discharge conveyors of the machines are fitted with quick-releases. In addition, the discharge conveyor is equipped with a winch that enables the machine to be easily made ready for operation without the use of tools.

The advanced Palax firewood processors are fitted with a discharge conveyor with two chains with a completely open underside, which ensures the trouble-free processing of firewood. The conveyor can also be turned to the side, which maximises its capacity: you can allow the machine to continue its work by turning the discharge conveyor onto another trailer or a bag-packing stand, as the previous one fills up.
