Rex 600 X Firewood Processor – with infeed hopper

About Rex 600 X

**Please note – the video above shows the Rex600 – we’re creating footage of the 600X to be released soon!**

For more productivity, the Rex 600 X incorporates the same firewood splitting system as the standard 600, yet features an inbuilt infeed hopper, which holds 3.5 cubic meters of blocked timber. The hopper is filled with blocked firewood with a loader, with the conveyor belt feeding the blocked firewood directly to the operator. The inclusion of the hopper essentially halves labour input – one person using this machine can split and load in excess of 10 cubic meters per hour. The Rex 600 X will dramatically increase profit margin by increasing production efficiency and reducing labour input.

The Rex 600X model is a jump up from the 600 due to the inbuilt hopper. The multi head blade system however is the same, and can produce up to four pieces per stroke resulting in high output with minimal labour. This machine is powered by a 37hp Yanmar engine and features a 6 second cycle time and 5 meter fold out elevator fitted as standard. Rollers in the bench make for easy block movement. It is fitted with the innovative and safe (auto return) double handed control system and easily accessed elevator & hopper controls. The Rex 600X can also be fitted with a registration kit for safe and legal road towing.

Since 2010 Whitlands Engineering has built over 110 600 & 600X machines, earning a reputation for being the most reliable, cost effective & productive firewood splitter on the market.
