Just Saws/Charterhouse Turf Machinery launches The Badger firewood processor

Just Saws, a division of Charterhouse Turf Machinery, has announced a new dedicated firewood processor, which is intended to speed up the process of preparing and splitting logs into firewood.

The Badger, manufactured by Hud-Son and intended for tree surgeons and foresters, will tackle logs up to 40cm in diameter. It picks them up with a special winch and can chop them into pieces of any length before splitting them into wedges. The Badger is powered by a 16hp Briggs and Stratton engine and can work without the need of a tractor.

Just Saws product manager Curtis Allen said the main benefit of the machine, which costs around £13,000, is that it saves on labour. "A job that would have employed two men for 2 days can now be done in one morning," he said. He added that the Badger was especially useful because high quality firewood now commands a high price.
