Abstract

Describes a new machine designed to reduce small-diameter logs into small chunks or blocks. The chunks can be used to manufacture flakeboard and composite wood products as well as for energy wood. Presents data on the physical character of chunkwood produced; production rates; and torque, power, and energy requirements for two species and two nominal chunk lengths.
