Hakki Pilke USA and the National Firewood Association conducted a survey about the challenges modern firewood businesses face in the United States. We found their two main concerns to be low firewood prices and the quality of their firewood.

Running a profitable firewood business requires minimizing labor requirements, overhead costs and maintenance expense. Success in tackling these issues comes down to choosing the right machine for your operation. Hakki Pilke offers the most cost-effective solutions that enable you to outperform your competition with an output rate of up to 4 cords per hour.

Producers are not satisfied with their firewood quality

One out of three respondents told us that rising firewood quality requirements are affecting their business profits. They were either unsatisfied with the quality of firewood their machines were producing or worried that they might not be able to meet the quality standards of their customers.

Hakki Pilke firewood processors are equipped with the most advanced splitting knife technology on the market that minimizes debris and maximizes firewood quality control in terms of size and clean split. Up to 12 (and 16) way splitting knives are developed in close cooperation with international operators processing hardest woods.

All our firewood processors have patented debris cleaning and pivoting outfeed conveyors that clean most of the smaller slash before it ends in the firewood pile. For larger operations, we offer state-of-the art cleaning equipment such as the Hakki Pilke Roller that works with multiple firewood processors feeding it.


"Our machine completely changed our business. Immediate production increases and no down time. It's very portable and quick to set up. I think the cleaning outfeed conveyor is a great innovation. We actually sell some of the pieces as kindling. Thanks to the 8- and 12-way knives, we don't have to worry about constant re-splitting anymore and processing is extremely fast.”
