About WS100

The smallest Aussie Chopper in the range, the WS100 is the ideal solution for processing domestic volumes of firewood. Fitted with a 6hp engine, and a 100kg capacity cable operated log lifter, the Aussie Chopper WS100 is surprisingly powerful. The WS100 features a single-handed control system that is compliant to Workcover guidelines. The 6hp engine delivers a whopping 19 tons of splitting force and 14-second cycle time.
