The And “Y” Knot Firewood Packaging Machine reduces packaging time and handling requirements associated with firewood packaging and reduces lead time and storage needs of packaged product prior to prime selling seasons. Traditional manual firewood packaging is a physically taxing process that makes it difficult to retain employees, because 87% of the time preparing firewood for client use is spent packaging.

A single person is capable of making 1 bag/package in approximately 2 minutes. The machine is capable of making 3-4 bags/packages in 1 minute.
