POWER EQUIPMENT AND WHITLANDS ENGINEERING A HOT COMBINATION

As temperatures drop across Australia production is hotting up at Whitlands Engineering for the latest high-speed firewood cleaner  -– the Rex Trommel.

Powered by a Yanmar engine, the Rex Trommel can process almost a cubic metre of wood per minute.

Combining a traditional “trommel” drum with input and output conveyor belts, the Whitlands’ creation is simple in design and purpose-built for separating dirt and kindling from wood.

This ensures high quality firewood is delivered to market.

“Our Rex Trommel is proving to be very popular with businesses that produce large quantities of firewood,” says Whitlands Engineering CEO, David Burder. “Cleaning wood is not new. But what we’ve done at Whitlands is develop a machine using high-class engineering, robust materials and a powerful and reliable engine to ensure the wood is cleaned quicker and better, producing only the best quality firewood which retailers prefer.”

The powerful machine is easy-to-use and easy-to-move.

Newly-cut firewood mixed with unwanted waste such as dirt, grass, stones and kindling is simply tipped into a hopper at the back of the Rex Trommel.

Once the machine is switched on, the floor of the hopper comes to life – slowly feeding the load into a large metal trommel drum.

The 3m long, 1.2m wide trommel is the belly of the beast, made up of strong metal bars set wide enough apart to allow smaller waste products to fall freely from the load, while keeping hold of the market-grade firewood.

The trommel rotates steadily and powerfully, churning the wood and separating unwanted waste. The waste material is neatly discharged along the waste conveyor into a skip, leaving the clean, high-quality firewood to move along a nine and a half metre conveyor into a truck ready for market.

At the muscular heart of the Rex Trommel is a Yanmar 3TNV76 diesel engine. The 20kW, three cylinder engine, supplied by Power Equipment, can easily cope with the weighty demands of cleaning firewood.

Whitlands Engineering always use Power Equipment and the trusted Yanmar engines in their products, for its quality and reliability.

“We expect our engineering to last for years and years,” explains David Burder, “so we needed an engine to match our high quality. We believe the Yanmar 3TNV76 does exactly that – it’s a top, top engine, and perfect for the job. It’s no good our engineering lasting 20 years if the engine keeps failing, so we’re happy to work with Power Equipment to produce long-lasting, quality products.”
