In one operating cycle, the machine combines wood cutting using a chain saw with splitting and conveying onto the flitch pile using a transport belt conveyor.
PŁD-450, with an automatic high-speed splitting valve, adjusts automatically the optimum force of the main piston within the range of 9-25 tonnes, and as such the speed increases when splitting thin logs and the splitting force increases when splitting thicker logs. The automatic, high-speed splitting valve significantly reduces splitting time and significantly reduces electricity costs. The PŁD-450 splitter saw is equipped with fully automatic control: chain guide, log clamp, splitting, input and output feeder, hydraulic height adjustment of the splitting knife. All functions are performed by the operator using a joystick. The PŁD-450 splitter saw is manufactured in automatic and semi-automatic versions and as a mobile chassis version with any drive, POS, combustion engine, electric motor and mixed drive.
