This machine has a firewood chipper attached to it. The firewood chipper takes off the branches of the wood that are too large and difficult to cut. It can also be used as a stand alone wood processor. The firewood chipper is what makes this a very efficient and profitable machine to own. Most firewood processors will not be able to sell the wood they get from this machine because they only want large sized wood and the wood comes in various sizes and are different lengths.

Commercial prices for firewood vary depending on the area and the time of year, but typically wood is sold by the cord, which is 16 feet long and 4 feet wide and has 128 cubic feet of volume.

Your profit per cord varies depending on the local market conditions, but typically starts at $1.20 for an 8-foot long log and can range to as high as $4.00 for an 8-foot long round. If you are on a fixed income and need an affordable, renewable form of energy, then firewood could be right for you.

Wood Chipper VS Firewood Processor
A wood chipper is typically used to quickly process firewood into smaller, more manageable pieces of wood that can be more easily transported and stored. Firewood processors are designed to efficiently process firewood into usable sizes. Here are a few of the benefits of using a wood chipper over a firewood processor.

Since there are no motors or blades to wear out and require maintenance, wood chippers are usually quieter than processors.
As previously mentioned, a wood chipper is typically smaller than a processor, which means it can be left outdoors to process all of the firewood that is brought in. When there is firewood to process and no chipper, an alternative is a manual chipper. While these are great for processing smaller amounts of firewood, they require the operator to be in the same room as the wood chipper. This makes for a tedious task. A wood chipper can process about four times as much wood as a manual chipper.
A person might choose a firewood processor over a wood chipper if they need a lot of firewood in a short amount of time. If you are planning to sell firewood and you don’t have time to cut the wood, then you might need a wood chipper.

After I got home from school one day, I decided to process a couple of logs that I had cut down for firewood. I was tired of just stacking them up in the woods, so I went to a local firewood company to process it. I had to have the logs chopped up into smaller chunks, because they need a certain size to be able to sell them as firewood. After that, I had the lumber hauled to the processor. They usually charge about $50 for a truckload of firewood. You can get a pretty good price if you cut them into smaller pieces, but I decided to just stack them up in the woods to save money. I saved up enough money to purchase a processor. The next day, I went to the local processor to find out how much I’d have to pay for it. I was shocked. The price was only $25. I knew I had the best deal in town, so I decided to go ahead and purchase it. I was happy to have the extra money in my pocket. I spent the next week or so picking up pieces of wood, taking them to the processor, and then hauling them back home. It was actually pretty easy and I made some extra money.
