The Hakki Pilke 55 Pro was designed for effective professional firewood processing in close cooperation with firewood professionals around the world. The innovative functions of 55 Pro ensures superior performance in all conditions and situations. It demolishes 55 cm (22") logs of hardwood to high quality firewood with 40 tons (44 US tons) splitting power and high-performance hydraulic functions.
Effortless splitting with HakkiMultiBlade and automatic splitting blade height adjustment system
The Hakki Pilke 55 Pro brings the firewood processing to the modern age with innovative and automatic functions. With the new HakkiMultiBlade™ you can split up to 24 pieces and then easily change to 8 pieces in only seconds. The automatic hydraulic height adjustment of the splitting blade ensures consistent high-quality firewood even when the diameter of the logs varies. The system has an innovative sensor that measures the diameter of each log and adjusts the splitting blade height accordingly to get optimal results.
“The innovative HakkiMultiBlade™ is an idea based on the customer need: the change of the splitting blade in big a firewood processor is slow and heavy. We wanted to make this easier for our customers. Now the change between 24-way and 8-way splitting blade is easy and takes only seconds. Due to the new blade design, changing from the standard 8-way to 16-way is also fast. The HakkiMultiBlade™ and automatic height adjustment system comes as a standard to every 55 Pro firewood processor,” says Product Development Manager Timo Jussila.
Real-time information on production level and machine controls at hand
The 55 Pro has a modern data monitoring system with easy-to-use monitor screen. The monitoring system is collecting important data from machine’s productivity and processes. You get a real-time information about processed volumetric measurements, hours of operation, splitting method and safety covers.
“Our customers have been hoping to get information on the productivity level and how much firewood is made. The screen and data monitoring system comes as a standard equipment. This display shows statistics on the amount of produced firewood such as daily outputs and outputs per hour. You can also control a lot of different functions of the machine, such as the stroke of splitting cylinder and the wood measuring device, by this monitor.” says Export Manager of Hakki Pilke Jari Niskakoski.
User can easily change the wanted length for the firewood from the monitor. The measuring device moves automatically to the correct position based on the selected length. The plate can be driven manually forward or backward from the monitor’s buttons. In the monitor screen, the user can also control the half stroke function and turn the automatic blade height adjustment on manual.
The Hakki Pilke XL Conveyor is available as optional equipment. You can complete and maximize the efficiency of your firewood factory by adding either the 6 m or 8 m XL Conveyor to the 55 Pro’s outfeed conveyor. The conveyor’s 60 cm (24") wide belt transports easily large amount of firewood and it has a cleaning system that separates the debris from the firewood. The XL Conveyor is also easy to remove from the machine and transport by its own tires for short distances.
Fast and uninterrupted processing with half-stoke splitting and landing plates
The productivity level of 55 Pro is unbeatable with the delay-free HakkiSplit™ splitting system with half-stroke function for making short firewood faster. You can choose the splitting to return after full, half or one-third of the stroke. The log landing plates ensure that even the shortest cut logs land neatly into the splitting groove. The 55 Pro has automatic greasing system that pumps at standard intervals, which saves maintenance time. It has five active safety covers to ensure the user safety and to ease the maintenance and processing of work. Safety covers are light weight, easy to use and stop all movements inside the machine once opened.
The 55 pro has many other industry leading Pro Series features like the patented AC 10 automatic chain tensioner and electric automatic chain oil lubrication. The AC 10 system maintains the chain at optimal tension, improving the efficiency of the cutting and providing a significant increase to the life span of the chain and bar. The standard equipment’s also include HakkiCut™ sawing interface, automatically optimized saw lowering speed and hydraulic rolling log clamp.
Customer needs and experience are at the heart of the design process
Hakki Pilke strives continuously to develop products together with the global network of knowledgeable customers and distributors. The development of our firewood processors has always based on the needs and requirements of our customers and their business.
“The need for bigger diameter and high-quality firewood as a result was at the heart of the design process. The machine was tested around the world in three different locations with different environment where thousands of cubics were made from hardwoods such as beech and blue gum. With comprehensive product testing we ensured that the 55 Pro works perfectly in all conditions. In addition, we got valuable feedback from the machine testers so that we were able to adjust all the functions to work flawlessly,” says Product Development Manager Timo Jussila.
A firewood supplier in South Germany, Dopei’s Brennholzverkauf, was one of the 55 Pro testers. “The 55 Pro with the automatic log measuring device can handle heavy and sturdy logs. Stronger infeed conveyor with two drive rollers moves heavy logs easily to the sawing. The 24-way blade can split effortlessly different types of hardwood like oak and beech. The automatic height adjustment makes the processing smoother when the log size varies which was a needed function for industrial operations,” says the owner of Dopei’s Brennholzverkauf Mr. Dominik Peisl.
The expertise, product development and innovativeness of the world’s leading firewood processor producer is crystallized in the Hakki Pilke Pro series. The Hakki Pilke Pro series has grown over the years and now the 55 Pro is currently the biggest machine in Hakki Pilke product portfolio.
“There was a clear need for a bigger machine as exports make up about 80% of the Hakki Pilke sales. Every year thousands of machines are shipped to 6 continents and over 35 countries to process all known firewood species around the world. Big diameter logs are easy to find in many countries with relatively low cost and many times these log are difficult to process and not suitable for sawmills or the pulp and paper industry. The 55 Pro is the perfect solution to this,” says Business Unit Director Anssi Westerlund from Hakki Pilke.
The Hakki Pilke 55 Pro machine is designed for true professionals who need high productivity and uninterrupted material flow with high quality end-result. Together with HakkiFeed 472 and XL Conveyor, you will get the leading firewood factory in the market. Join the Winning Team!
