The Harbrook Engineering Ultra Double Axe was designed by Mike Harper who came up with the idea after years of splitting wood the back breaking way. The large work area is designed for efficiency, being able to support a single ton bag with the holder attachment on one side. On the other side of the machine is a hydraulically operated lifting table for that extra helping hand with large and awkward logs, if this is not needed it can be left up to create extra work space and storage area for ready to chop logs increasing your work flow.
Safety is paramount on a machine that you could potentially spend hours using. Trapping points have been made safer, hydraulic pipes have been hidden under a large guard and others if exposed have been fitted with suppression sleeves. This machine requires both hands to operate each ram and then only one hand to operate the return stroke allowing you to clear the product quickly maximising efficiency.
The twin ram splitter gives you a choice between a 10 ton and 20 ton ram. The 10 ton will cope with 90% of your wood, being smaller allows it to be quicker, when you find a piece it struggles with the 20 ton will soon get it cracked.
Different types of wood may require different blades, we can offer fast crack blade as-well as 4 way splitting blade along with the 2 standard blades which come with the machine. Blades are quick and easy to change because of the precision engineering techniques that go into making them (block milling and waterjet cutting). A convenient blade storage rack is fixed under the table to give you the options at all times.
The Ultra Duoble Axe is fitted with 3 point linkage brackets on the back so that it easy to move with a tractor. This machine does not have to run from a tractors hydraulics though, previous customers have used excavators, porta -packs and even a jcb 3cx to operate it, as long as it reaches the required LPM.
