Thinking about upgrading my processor
« on: February 17, 2017, 07:58:01 am »
Well as some of you know i purchased a new wallenstein firewood processor this past year.  It has been a great machine for me and has worked for me pretty good. It has boosted up my production and has made some money for me but its time to up  grade. I have been doing some research on a few different processors to replace it with.

Too small, too slow ?  Or what is it you don't like on it, or why upgrade ?
Just think it would be interesting for people who are looking at the wallenstein products.
Make sure you know how to fall properly when you fall and as to not hurt anyone around you.
Also remember, it's not the fall what hurts, its the sudden stop. !!

Well my deman has increased yet again. So im having trouble keeping up a little. And i am getting tired of having to stop and fuel up the saw. It has nothing to do with me being fidgety its lack of production.

Might want to consider a remote fuel and oil tank for the saw.

This machine isn't worth the effort to modify it. Im hoping to be bought out by Clayton at brute force manufacturing and get one of thier model 16-24 processors.

I heard from several people that they are junk but idk. And brute force may be buying my machine but nothing has happened yet.
