Now Palax focuses on consumers by launching the new PALAX ACTIVE. Despite its compact size, this powerhouse ensures that the production of firewood is easy and convenient. Although its external dimensions are small, the machine’s solid structure and safety of operation have not been ignored. This compelling machine is easy-going and effortless to use. And thanks to its fully opening protective net, the PALAX ACTIVE is quick and easy to service. Distinguished from its competitors, this reliable and versatile machine is also equipped with a hydraulically-driven feed roller, which considerably reduces the effort required for handling logs. And the crosscut handle having a lateral motion instead of the traditional up-down motion, means that the operating ergonomics of the machine are excellent.
The machine’s 4-ton cylinder guarantees that the splitting force is more than sufficient for consumer use. Cutting is effected by means of a 13' saw-bar and a chain-saw. The user himself can sharpen the chain neatly, ensuring that progress will not be impeded by unnecessary waiting.
In order for all users to find the model that is just right for them, the PALAX ACTIVE can be selected from a range of four different optional power sources: external hydraulic system (from tractor or mini loader), PTO shaft of a tractor, electric motor of 4 kW or Honda combustion engine of 13 hp.
The PALAX ACTIVE can also be equipped with a convenient 2.6-metre-long discharge conveyor, which ensures the trouble-free production of firewood, for example into a bag or onto a trailer.
The optional convenient transport platforms enable easier transferring of the machine: one for off-road use, the other for use on public roads.
