Palax KS40

The Palax KS40 is a powerful and easy-to-operate machine capable of splitting logs up to 38cm in diameter. It is equipped with a 4.3m discharge conveyor that can be shifted mechanically 2.2m to the side.


This machine benefits from excellent ergonomics due to the crosscut handle having a lateral motion instead of the traditional up-down motion. The discharge conveyor has two chains and is also open on the underside, which ensures its trouble-free operation.


As standard, the KS40 is available with an extra hydraulic circuit for an external in-feed roller.

As an option, the KS40 can be equipped with a Power-Speed cylinder, which increases the operating speed at three different splitting forces. It is available powered by tractor or by electric motor.
