I’m happy I made the choice. The new Brute Force 18-24 HD was my first firewood processor, as a matter of fact, I bought the very first one built. After producing wood with log splitters and chain saws I decided this is the way to go. And I’m happy I made the choice! The 18-24 HD was super easy to operate, I was running it like a pro within a couple of hours. The round log trough lets me run some ugly crooked logs and the swing outfeed conveyor lets me run much longer without moving the wood pile. And service.. Well it’s just a phone call away! Clayton is always there to help a new guy like me and always goes the extra mile. Simply couldn’t ask for more! Steve Hollingsworth Chippewa Falls, WI
