SK1200/30: Uncompromising strength.

Its special plus points are the two hydraulically adjustable side bolsters, each of which can be controlled separately. This allows for the log to be effortlessly centred against the splitting blade. If both side bolsters are set horizontally, they create a flat working surface on which the wood can be easily turned to the desired position. The flat wood loading trough and the smooth lifting forks makes it easier to move the wood along with a hookaroon. The optimised splitting speed of around four seconds running forwards and around seven seconds running backwards enables quick, cost-effective work. 

SK 900/20 and SK 900/24: The powerhouses

The SK 900/20 and SK 900/24 models are practically identical in their construction and offer a perfect combination of performance and manoeuvrability. With splitting pressures of 20 t and 24 t, they deliver the perfect splitting results – though they weigh only 700 kg. The 24 t design can also be fitted with an 80 L pump and speed valve.
