Whitlands Engineering design and manufacture a small range of hoppers and elevators to further increase efficiency in commercial firewood production.

3.6M ELEVATORS FOR WS3150 & WS4150

Load your wood directly into your truck or trailer and save double handling. This 3.6m Elevator fits to the WS3150 & WS4150 Superaxe models. The elevator will reach up to 3 meters and folds for travelling. It utilises a manual winch mechanism to fold and unfold elevator and set up takes only a few minutes.


The 3.6 meter fold out elevator can be ordered as an add-on to any new machine orders, or ordered separately to be retrofitted to an exisiting machine WS3150 or WS4150. 


The innovative design folds for travelling, utilising a manual winch mechanism to fold and unfold elevator. Set up takes only a few minutes.


Like all machinery built by Whitlands Engineering, the elevator is built to last.


Available in various sizes, free standing elevators allow flexibility in wood handing + movement

Infeed hoppers have the potential to more than double splitting production by reducing wood handling. The hopper is filled with a loader, which means the operator spends less time away from the splitter. This 4m3 hopper feeds timber onto the wood splitter bench for splitting, and is powered by the hydraulics on the wood splitter.


Since 1993, Whitlands Engineering has been designing and building legendary firewood machinery. From humble beginnings, Superaxe transformed the wood splitter industry, earning an unrivalled reputation for innovative design, safety and ease of use. Still family owned, over the last 30 years our company has grown to employ over 30 people and manufacture a whole range of options from the smallest Superaxe to the most powerful Log Saw. Every machine is built from the ground up in our north-east Victorian workshop by a highly skilled workforce. Many of our staff have been with the company for decades and bring with them genuine expertise in the design and building of our machinery. The quality of the construction is unmatched – these machines are built for a lifetime of use. Furthermore, we build every machine to order and only sell direct, meaning that our customer support team is on hand to assist with any product or technical enquiries. We go to great lengths to source from Australian suppliers, contribute to our local community and provide a positive work environment for our staff and their families. We’re extremely proud of what we do and what we build… Support Australian made – we do!
