Contract splitting by Wessex Biofuels

Our splitting service has two main aims:

  • Splitting large diameter timber to aid the drying process, especially with species like poplar which retain a lot of moisture.
  • Splitting large diameter timber to fit the chipper in-feed

The splitter is crane fed and powered by tractor PTO both crane and splitter are operated from the cab of the tractor. It will split up to a four feet diameter log in manageable lengths
