A global benchmark for high volume firewood production, capable of producing 15 cubic meters an hour of split firewood with only one operator
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 50hp 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 towards the blade by the steel cleat conveyor. The operator stands between the hopper and the blade, arranging the blocks on the conveyor to feed underneath the blade at the correct rate. The multi head blade cycles automatically every 5 seconds splitting up to 5 or 6 pieces of timber per cycle, which is then carried away for stockpiling (or loading) on the 9.5m 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. 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 100 units in use across Australia and New Zealand – most with thousands of hours of trouble free operation.
