Palax KS 45S

Palax KS 45S


The KS 45S is designed for contractors who process logs of extremely varying diameter. The machine is able to chop logs with a diameter up to 45 cm.


It stands out from its contenders by its hydraulic driven log-clamp and the dropping plate which directs the truncated logs in the correct position to the splitting wedge.


Sometimes even a professional needs relief: the all-hydraulic joystick control of the KS 45S makes the working effortless and a fully opening, protective net makes the maintenance easier.


The KS 45S comes with an efficient crosscut sawbar of 20”. The splitting operation begins immediately after the log has been cut off. The machine has a patented three-speed-cylinder which speeds up the processing of smaller logs. The KS 45S does not yield – no matter how heavy the load. The force of up to 16 tonnes is sufficient for even large logs. The contract work is finalised by the hydraulically driven 4.3-m long discharge conveyor that takes the ready firewood into bags or onto a pallet.
