AN AUSTRALIAN FAMILY OWNED BUSINESS, WHITLANDS ENGINEERING HAS EARNED AN UNRIVALLED REPUTATION FOR THE DESIGN AND MANUFACTURE OF QUALITY MACHINERY FOR THE FIREWOOD INDUSTRY.
Since 1993, we’ve been building Superaxe wood splitters and the Rex range of log saws, firewood processors & wood handling attachments. Our products are designed to be safe, productive, innovative and most significantly, built to last. We use the highest quality components and build each machine from the ground up in our Victorian workshop. Every model is covered by a comprehensive warranty, and when you buy from us you can expect great service & genuine expertise. So, if you’re starting to get serious about firewood, you’ve come to the right place.
Designed for commercial operations, the Rex 600 features an efficient 3 tooth-blade splitting system built into a compact, towable processor. Blocks are loaded via a powerful hydraulic block lifter and the 5m fold up outfeed elevator makes stockpiling or loading simple.
The Rex600X incorporates the same firewood splitting system as the standard Rex 600, yet features an inbuilt hopper that holds 3.5m3 of blocked timber. A conveyor belt feeds the blocks directly to the operator essentially halving labour requirements. Two-handed controls ensure safety and the standard 5m outfeed elevator also includes a griddle.
The REX 900 sets the standard for maximum output, capable of splitting and loading up to 15 cubic meters per hour with only one operator. Featuring a fully automated moving cutting floor, the REX 900 is fully self -contained and portable and features a large infeed hopper, fuel efficient Deutz engine and world-class hydraulic system.
The REX 650C circular saw performs extremely well on a wide range of logs, especially dirty, dry, bent, uneven or partially hollow logs. The 28 tungsten tooth x 1.5m diameter blade is driven by a fuel efficient 70hp Yanmar engine. On average the 650C will complete 10-12 cuts per minute for 400-500mm logs. The REX 650C is also capable of cutting multiple smaller logs utilising a dual clamp system.
The REX 800 makes turning logs into blocks an easy task. This firewood docking saw is a very productive, hydraulic drive chainsaw, capable of cutting up to 800mm diameter logs using a 43” harvester bar with 3/4” chain. Designed to work in conjunction with a processor like the REX 600X or REX 900, this machine cuts logs into blocks safely & efficiently, out feeding the blocks via the elevator.
The REX 1050 is the ultimate machine for turning large logs into firewood. The REX 1050 is the big brother of the REX 800, utilising a 48” harvester bar, larger log infeed, larger trough and larger out feed block conveyor. Driven by a 50hp Deutz diesel engine, all built into a standalone, towable unit, the REX 1050 is able to handle logs up to 1050mm in diameter.
