The robust WS3150 is suitable for processing larger volumes of firewood for farm, hire or commercial operations.

Featuring a 200kg capacity hydraulic log lifter, larger wheels, larger workbench and a larger frame – the WS3150 is the second most powerful splitter in the range. The innovative double handed control with auto return ensures ease of use, quick cycle times & unmatched safety. The WS3150 is fitted with a 9hp engine delivering a whopping 21 tons of splitting power and a 7 second cycle time. Couple with optional infeed hoppers and/or outfeed elevators for even greater output.

The WS3150 is also available with a 13hp power pack. This model has all the attachments required to fit/retrofit an elevator. Call us to discuss the options.

Please note ** In early 2018, this machine was rebranded as Superaxe from the older name ‘Aussie Chopper’. The model and specs are the same, just the name has changed**
