Palax KS45S

It is designed for processing logs of varying diameters of up to 45cm.

It stands out from its competitors by the driven log clamp, and the dropping plate, which direct the logs in the correct position to the splitting wedge.


This machine comes with an efficient crosscut 20" sawbar and has a patented three-speed-cylinder, which speeds up the processing of smaller logs. The splitting force of up to 16 tonnes is sufficient for large logs too.

The all-hydraulic control of the KS45S makes the processing of firewood effective and easy.

It is available in models powered by tractor or electric motor.
