Hakki Pilke: New 38 Pro takes firewood processors to a new level

By WniF editors

Introduced at the KoneAgria exhibition in Finland, the Hakki Pilke 38 Pro is the result of development work based on close co-operation with customers. Hakki Pilke delivers thousands of processors to more than 30 countries on five continents each year, and a lot of information about the requirements of different markets and conditions is accumulated.

“We know professional firewood manufacturers and professionals know us,” said Hakki Pilke’s R&D chief, Timo Jussila. “For example, the 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.”

Hakki Pilke has revolutionised the market with several innovations and processor models in three decades. The 38 Pro’s cut-enhancing HakkiCut and patented AC10 are unique solutions not available from other manufacturers. Furthermore, the 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,” Mr Jussila added. “The cycle time is three 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.”

A joystick controls the main functions on the new Hakki Pilke 38 Pro.

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.

“With the 38 Pro, cutting and splitting take place by pressing a joystick button,” Mr Jussila said. “All other essential functions are also at hand, delivering top-class usability. With the 38 Pro, you can make firewood faster than with competing processors in the same size class.”
