Model 18 – a little bigger, a little stronger

The Model 18 is quickly becoming our most popular machine – a real work horse (or rather, beaver!).
Capable of doing 2 + cords per hour with good size wood, it’s fast and efficient. With our proprietary Super Split regenerative hydraulic system the splitter cycles at an incredible 4-4.5 seconds!

We will be happy to assist you with choosing the best options for your firewood processor.

The live in feed is standard on the 18 – choose a log lift, dead deck or live deck for loading and you have a full on production machine that will keep the wood pile ready.
Equipped with engine-driven, tandem 10 gpm pumps, and with our exclusive serial hydraulic valve system, the 18 thinks nothing of multi-tasking. Go ahead, run the saw and splitter together – it not only won’t flinch, it won’t even slow down.
For engines, choose from the standard Honda GX630, or optional Honda GX690 or Kohler ECH 749 EFI, or even a Kubota 902 or Kohler 1003 diesel. The optional highway package makes it easy to move around the woodlot or down the road. This machine is THE firewood factory!
