Brute Force 24-30 Firewood Processor Has Several New Features



The Brute Force 24-30 now comes standard with several new features, including a 59 HP Kubota turbo diesel engine.

In addition to this new power plant, the 24-30 features a 2-stage pump as standard equipment.  The 2-stage pump gives this firewood processor the best of both worlds, power and speed.  Combine the 2-stage pump with the 5" cylinder and our fast split system (also standard equipment) and this machine is not only extremely powerful, but it's also blazing fast.

Another standard feature on this processor is the hydraulic log support.  Whether you're using it to support the last cut on a log, or just to ensure those big rounds drop correctly into the splitting chamber, the hydraulic log support is a great safety feature that helps keep your hands away from the chain saw.

For more information on the new log support, check out the videos at the bottom of the 24-30 Firewood Processor page.

EPA To Alaskans - Stop Burning Firewood


January in Fairbanks Alaska is cold.  Very Cold.  Many Alaska residents burn wood to stay warm in the winter, but burning firewood may soon result in a fine imposed by the North Star Borough, which is home to Fairbanks & North Pole and it's approximately 100,000 residents.

According to this article in the New York Times the EPA could declare this entire area to be in "serious" noncompliance of the Clean Air Act.

In another article published by the FEDERALIST, they say that the EPA thinks this is a big problem and that eight years ago, the EPA ruled that large areas of the most densely populated parts of the region were in “non-attainment” of federal air quality standards.  This ruling prompted state and local authorities to look for ways to cut pollution from wood-burning stoves, including the possibility of fining residents who burn wood. After all, a declaration of noncompliance from the EPA would have enormous economic implications for the region, like the loss of federal transportation funding.

Burn Wood. Feel Good. - National Firewood Association

The National Firewood Association recently launched their "Burn Wood.  Feel Good." campaign, which is meant to give firewood a positive voice in the public sphere.

When burned locally using proper techniques in an efficient wood stove, firewood is an eco-friendly fuel that’s renewable, inexpensive and readily available to millions of people. It has a place in discussions about alternative fuels and renewable resources. It also has a rich history of saving lives when all else had failed. Little in this world is as dependable and useful as firewood.



Burn wood, feel good.
Nearly every conversation about burning wood begins with criticism of the environmental impact of harvesting trees and pollution. But experienced wood burners know that wood can burned without smoke, and we can see the positive effects of a properly managed forest in our local areas.

Firewood for heat is typically harvested and produced within an hour’s drive from where it’s burned. No tanker ships, no pipelines. That alone gives it a head-start on environmental responsibility. It also stimulates the local economy. Even those who cut their own wood need chainsaws and service, a chimney sweep, a new stove, maybe a chiropractor.

The problem is that there is no loud, unified voice to speak on behalf of firewood. With no big corporations funding PR and ad campaigns, firewood is vulnerable.



The NFA speaks for firewood
As of November 2016, there are 13 bills specifically mentioning firewood before the United States Congress. Today, at the state level, 58 bills concerning firewood are under review. Further restrictions on burning, transport, and storage crop up every year in local government actions across the country.

The “Burn Wood, Feel Good” campaign is designed to deliver the good news about firewood. The NFA message also offers solutions. It is our contention that misguided practices by inexperienced or ill-informed wood burners are the single largest cause of problems and complaints about burning wood. Our program will deliver basic educational messages targeted at educating the public on best practices.

A short list of common errors to be addressed: Not burning seasoned wood, not knowing when/how to regulate the draft on the stove, shoddy installation, substandard chimneys. That’s without mentioning safety, a favorite topic of the insurance industry. We also address the general lack of professionalism in the marketplace that often results in short loads of poor-quality firewood.

The most important thing to understand is that these problems will continue no matter how many regulations are placed on wood stoves.

It is necessary for the people to support firewood simply because there is no one else to do it. We must become stewards of the practice, and take it upon ourselves to improve our own lot.

The NFA is proud to speak for firewood on its merits alone.  Firewood is:

  • Renewable
  • Responsible
  • Reliable
  • Simple
  • Inexpensive
  • Available to millions
  • Local
  • Enjoyable
