Palax C1000 previously the Palax 100S firewood processor.
The Palax C1000 is a firewood processor designed for professional use. An evolution from the power 100S, Palax has added features to make it the most efficient, productive and reliable firewood processor of its size for cutting, splitting big trees up to 40 cm.
Palax describe the C1000 as “One of the most productive and efficient large log firewood processors in its size category”
This robust Palax C1000 is equipped with a 1000 mm TCT blade. The user will see an impressive thrust force of 16 tons (kg) / 35,300 lbs with this machine. Fully hydraulic control for precision and ease of use. The Palax C1000 is at its best when processing hardwood. The maximum tree diameter that can be processed is 40cm/15.7 in.
As a rule, the work stroke is always performed at high speed. If the smaller splitting force induced by the high-speed function is great enough, the wood will split up. If the splitting force at high speed is not great enough, it will immediately be boosted. As soon as the splitting of the wood starts and the force requirement is reduced, the high-speed operation will automatically resume. The high-speed motion brings added speed for small trees and added force for big trees.
Optimising the stroke length increases the splitting speed
The Palax Optimi is the method for optimising the length of the splitting stroke by limiting the cylinder stroke in accordance with the length of the processed wood. A full stroke is used for processing longer sized wood. If the length of the processed wood is shorter sized, then the cylinder stroke is reduced to almost a half and thus the splitting speed is virtually doubled!
Automatic tightening of the V-belts
The transmission drive belts of the Palax C1000 are equipped with automatic tightening. Automatic tightening of the belts completely eliminates the need for repeated re-tightening of the belts or malfunctions due to slack or too-tight drive belts. Keeping the belts at the correct tightness greatly extends the service life of the belts and the entire transmission.
Long service intervals – increased productivity
Lubed-for-life ball bearings in all the control levers make operation of the machine precise, reliable and long lived, and extend the service intervals.
