Drum Debarkers

Southern Cross Engineering works closely with overseas suppliers when it comes to drum debarkers, radial cranes and log merchandisers.

Drum debarkers with XHD design, VFAC electric drives & various lifter arrangements, allow for debarking perfection while reducing white wood losses in an easily maintainable power system. 

Drum Debarkers are designed, engineered, and manufactured to meet the most rigorous standards in the industry. This high-production equipment is energy-efficient, easy to maintain, and can dramatically increase throughput to the highest level in the industry. Operation costs are reduced and production rates are increased for a competitive advantage.

 Available in a range of sizes from 2.7m – 4m diameter sizes to any length for the appropriate sized wood. The rubber-tire supported drums meet the industry’s highest quality specifications, with up to 38mm (1.5 inch) shell thickness; 7% – 11% bark slot area; 30,000 lb. rated axle assemblies; plus maintenance and safety features that are extra on competitors drum systems.

Mobile Drum debarking systems are also available and overall we can supply a Drum debarker that can process from as little as 15 tonnes/hour up to 400 tonnes/hour. 

Whatever your debarking needs are we at Southern Cross have a solution for you.
