Frequently asked questions

How much does one need to tighten the bundler twine when tying the bundles?
Due to shrinking of the firewood when drying the twine will slacken somewhat so excessive tightening is not required.

Isnīt there a risk that the bundles will fall apart if the twine is insufficiently tightened?
Short firewood in large bundles have to be handled with some care but normally you only need some practise to handle even loose bundles without problems. Loose bundles can be reshaped more easily which facilitates storage on pallets or transport by trailer.

Isnīt it troublesome to tighten the twine?
The bundles only need to be tightened if you want to sell them piecewise. This operation takes just a few seconds.

Why is there a special kind of bundler for longer firewood?
The wider model provides more distance between the twines to make bundles of longer wood more stable to handle.

What is the weight of a bundle?
The weight varies due to moisture, sort of wood etc. A bundle of birchwood (60l) might weigh some 35kg and after drying 20-25kg. Aspen and alder etc. are lighter sorts of wood, ash and oak etc. are heavier. By using the Mini-bundler the weight of each bundle will be halved but the number of bundles doubled.

How many bundles are there in a cubic metre?
18 pcs of 60l bundles makes up one cubic metre of stacked firewood and can also be transported on a pallet.

Isnīt there a risk of damage caused by damp when covering the firewood with tarpaulins?
The woodstack must not be covered all the way down to the ground but needs an air gap of about 60-100cm for sufficient ventilation. The lower part of the woodstack can be protected from rain and snowfall by garden fleece or other suitable material.

How does the laser guide work?
The laser guide is intended for somewhat larger wood dimensions or firewood that can be securely fixed. A laser line is shown parallel to the saw blade, marking the desired log length. By fixing your gaze at the mark you will easily find the right cutting position. By making light markings with the saw chain you can easily divide a log into equally long logs of wood to eliminate waste.
