Rex 900 Firewood Processor – the benchmark for bulk processing

About Rex 900


The design of the Rex 900 Firewood Processor has revolutionised the industry – guaranteeing very high output with very low overheads. Designed and built in Australia, the Rex 900 has a proven reputation for good design, efficiency & reliability. Powered by a fuel efficient Deutz engine, the Rex 900 will split and load up to 15m3 of the toughest Australian hardwood per hour, with only one operator.

The Rex 900 is considered to be a ‘semi-automatic’ firewood processor. Blocks are loaded into the hopper first. Next they are carried (at a regulated speed) towards the blade by the conveyor underneath. The operator stands between the hopper and the blade, arranging the blocks to feed under the blade at the correct rate. The multi head blade cycles automatically splitting up to 6 pieces of timber per cycle, which is then carried away for stockpiling (or loading) on the 8m outfeed conveyor. The fines & rubbish are sorted from the wood as it falls over the griddle, resulting in a consistent sample of clean wood ready for sale. Importantly, the operator’s working environment is safe, as they are well clear of the splitting zone. This machine is WorkCover compliant making it ideal for firewood businesses who are seeking to reduce their liability.

The Rex 900 features an over specified hydraulic system, built with off the shelf components. Since the first prototype in 2003 it has earned a reputation for reliability & productivity with almost 70 units in use across Australia and New Zealand – most with thousands of hours of trouble free operation.
