The PowerMax3000™ includes up to three independent product drives and a 15-inch throat. The unit minimizes mechanical guards, reducing cleaning time. The center rear loading system can be loaded from the side or the back. The lift system pivots the product into the staging area just below the slicing grip line as the previous logs are finished being sliced. Once slicing is complete and grippers are retracted, the lift-to-grip system moves the next logs into position, minimizing reload times.
