By Chase Warner, Wood-Mizer Contributing Author
Wood-Mizer, a global manufacturer of wood processing equipment, introduces a pallet dismantling bandsaw to their diverse and growing product line. Wood-Mizer now owns and manufactures the popular Pallet Hawg® pallet dismantling machine that has earned a worldwide reputation for being extremely durable and reliable through a simple and innovative design.
Pallet Hawg® expert, Brad Kirkaldy, has joined Wood-Mizer and brings decades of experience to the company’s pallet recycling division. “Wood-Mizer is dedicated to providing the best in class equipment for a variety of timber and wood processing needs throughout the world,” said Brad Kirkaldy, Wood-Mizer Pallet Recycling Product Manager. “The addition of the Pallet Hawg dismantler is yet another high-quality piece of Wood-Mizer equipment for the pallet industry that is backed by our established network of service and support.”
The Wood-Mizer Pallet Hawg® PD200 Pallet Dismantler is designed for a full range of pallet recycling including pallet prep, repair, dismantle, and recovery. Due to the unique combination of high torque and low RPMs, the PD200 Pallet Dismantler has an expected blade life of 1,000 to 1,500 dismantled pallets per blade which is nearly double the blade life of competitive pallet dismantling saws. Designed for one or two operators, the PD200 features a sturdy welded steel tube frame that firmly supports two pneumatic wheels. The bi-metal blade that cuts the nails to dismantle the pallet is powered by a 10HP electric motor with a gear reduction drive. A pneumatic table lift has preset heights to enable quick and convenient shifting between upper and lower cut points to easily remove stringer boards, blocks, and deck boards of a pallet.
