January Hakki Pilke User of the Month is Niko Kotikulma from Karstula, Finland. Their family owns over 20-year-old circular blade equipped Hakki Pilke OH60 (newer models are called OH27). He mentions with strong central Finnish dialect that it’s a damn fast processor and they’ve made thousands of cubics of firewood since 1997. They had it since new and never had any major issues with quality other than normal wear out. Congrats Niko!

”A new generation is taking the lead”, managing director Anssi Westerlund summarizes this autumn’s brand new Hakki Pilke 38 Pro firewood processor and the Hakki Pilke Pro series being announced now. ”The Hakki Pilke Pro series takes firewood processors to a new age and level. We provide professionals with the output and speed of a new processor generation. We bring productivity-enhancing innovations and market-leading performance to firewood manufacturers”, Westerlund promises.
First introduced in the KoneAgria exhibition in Finland on October 12th-14th, the Hakki Pilke 38 Pro is a result of our development work based on close cooperation with customers – careful listening and responding to wishes. Hakki Pilke delivers thousands of processors to more than 30 countries on five continents each year; a lot of information about the requirements of different markets and conditions is accumulated. ”We know professional firewood manufacturers and professionals know us. For example, 38 Pro’s HakkiCut cutting control, where cutting takes place with optimized speed just by pressing a button, and AC10’s automatic chain tensioning are responses to distinct customer needs. This is the direction where we will increasingly steer our operation and R&D”, says Hakki Pilke’s R&D chief Timo Jussila.
Hakki Pilke is the world’s leading firewood processor manufacturer, who has revolutionized the market with several innovations and processor models in three decades. 38 Pro’s cut-enhancing HakkiCut™ and patented AC10 are unique solutions not available from other manufacturers. Furthermore, 38 Pro includes many new functionalities and improved features. ”The splitting power has been increased compared to the previous Easy 38 and it’s easily sufficient for even the hardest wood species in different parts of the world. The cycle time is 3 seconds, making the processor even faster with small and big logs. The enlarged hydraulic oil tank cools temperature and extends the operating life of the parts and oil. The reverse valve of the outfeed conveyor is also one of the new features”, Jussila lists.
Apart from power, speed, and productivity, professionals making a lot of firewood demand ergonomics and ease of use as well as uninterrupted operation from their processors. ”In 38 Pro, cutting and splitting take place by pressing a joystick button. All other essential functions are also at hand, delivering top-class usability. With 38 Pro, you can make firewood faster than with competing processors in the same size class”, Jussila says.

October Hakki Pilke User of the Month comes from Australia!
Keith Ashby from Encounter Bay, South Australia, bought his Easy 42 in 2015 and has been since processing firewood at eucalyptus plantations. He’s especially happy with the sturdy HakkiFeed 472 log table and fast cutting that are both required for smooth and efficient processing of eucalyptus. His machine also has one of the early prototype versions of automatic infeeding (moves in next log automatically when splitting starts) that is installed as standard to all Easy 43 firewood processors sold today.
Australia is one of the oldest export markets for Hakki Pilke firewood processors. Old models 2x30, 1x37 and 1x42 have been cutting the toughest Aussie Eucalyptus already since mid 1990s. Congrats for Keith for winning the Hakki Pilke jacket!
