Australia’s market leader for over 21 years! Featuring the innovative and efficient pivoting blade the Superaxe is the ideal solution for processing larger volumes of firewood for small to medium scale commercial, farm and agro forestry operations.
The Superaxe is available in 3 different models – the WS300, WS400 and WS450. All of these models have the same frame and axe configuration; yet feature different power pack (engine) sizes giving varying cycle times.

WS 100 AUSSIE CHOPPER

The smallest Aussie Chopper in range – the WS100, is the perfect solution for domestic volumes of firewood. Fitted with a 6hp (Subaru or Honda) engine, and a 100kg capacity cable operated log lifter, the Aussie Chopper is surprisingly powerful.The WS100 features the patented vertical sliding blade and the innovative single handed control system for safe and efficient splitting.

A 9hp engine is fitted as standard (13hp also available) delivering a whopping 21 tons of splitting power and a 7 second cycle time. The 3150 can be optioned with a 3.6 m elevator.

WS4150 MAIN PIC-thumbnail

WS 4150 AUSSIE CHOPPER T-BLADE

The WS 4150 is revolutionising the firewood splitting industry. Built on a similar, but bigger frame than the WS3150, the WS4150 features a T blade as standard, or a + shaped blade as an option. Heavy duty rollers embedded into the bench enable easy manovering of large blocks. With the 3 or 4 way blade, this machine has the potential to dramatically increase productivity by reducing the number blade cycles per timber block. The 4150 can be optioned with a 3.6 m elevator

REX 600  & 600x FIREWOOD PROCESSOR

From Whitlands Engineering is the best of both worlds – combining the multi-head blade from the Rex Firewood Processor, on a compact (trailered) work station.

REX 900 FIREWOOD PROCESSOR

The only machine of its kind, the revolutionary Rex 900 Firewood Processor is an incredibly fast and efficient system of splitting firewood for commercial operations. The Rex 900 guarantees very high output with very low overheads by optimising the splitting process from blocks right through to saleable firewood

Rex Log Saw Thumbnail

REX LOG SAW 800 & 1050 

The REX log saw range has been developed to dock large diameter firewood logs into blocks for splitting. It may be used in conjunction with the Rex Firewood Processor, where the blocks are fed directly into the hopper – creating an extremely efficient firewood processing system.
