Item No. HD36-DB
Removing dirt and small rocks embedded in the bark ahead of the cut reduces blade dulling. This
improves performance, speeds up cutting and increases time between sharpening (meaning less
time and money spent on blade maintenance). Norwood’s unique debarker design mounts the
12V, 1⁄2HP motor on the sawhead platform, positioning its weight directly in line with the sawhead’s
vertical up/down plane of movement. This innovative system eliminates the imbalanced forces
inflicted on sawheads by traditional direct-drive debarkers where the motor’s heavy weight hangs
cantilevered out in front of the blade.
The motor’s torque is remotely transmitted to the triple-stacked 5 1⁄2” carbide-tipped circular
blades on the debarker head via a high-strength flexible shaft. Stackable blades permit pre-cutting
up to 3/8” wide. Linearly adjustable, the debarker accommodates logs 10” (25cm) to 36” (92cm)
in diameter. Quickly remove the debarker head for safe storage or transport – simply disconnect
the flexi-shaft and a couple of wires. The easily accessible control box features an audible warning
sound when the system is ON.
