5Hakki Pilke Eagle Saw Bench with screw splitter – PTO & Electric
The concept of the Hakki Pilke Eagle saw bench with splitter has been around for a very long time – cutting timber with a circular saw and dividing it with a splitting cone – First cut the trunk of a tree into stumps of the desired length and then split each stump with a splitting cone.
The Eagle is designed with operator safety and ease of use a priority. The eagle is suitable for both big and small logs and it is easy to use. The Tungsten blade is 700mm in size capable of cutting just over 10″. Available in PTO or three phase electric . We have sold hundreds of the Eagle saw bench read some of the customer reviews below.

Eagle saw bench customer reviews
Mr Simon Ward, Cerney Wick, Cirencester
Having researched the market, I eventually decided on the Hakki Pilke Eagle, PTO driven. I’ve been running it off the back of a 30-year-old, 16HP Iseki compact tractor and it does everything I can throw at it.
The log splitter was a ‘nice to have’ in my mind but is really an ‘essential’. The whole thing is brilliant with one tiny exception. It would help to be able to easily open the grille at the bottom of the main blade cover to take out the collected debris, although this has never actually been necessary.
Add to this the great customer Service from Sharon and the Team at Davies Implements. Great result all round.
Mr Wyn Harries, Eglwyswrw, Pembrokeshire
The saw bench is doing what its designed too without any complaint or problems. I would say it is at least three times faster than a chain saw and axe but more importantly far, far safer. The splitter is fantastic and requires little to no effort. All is good.
Mr. Neville Phillips, Heddfan, Whitland, Carmarthenhire
The first thing I thought when I saw the ‘Hakki Pilke Eagle’ was “Hmmm, flimsy, I’m not sure if I want to buy this” However, nothing could be further from the truth – it’s tough as nails. It’s a simple design – the PTO shaft drives a single, belt-driven shaft. On one end is the blade and the other the cone shaped splitter. The only thing you’ve got to think about during operation is the emergency stop. When the thing stalls, push it down and the belts are rendered slack, so that the blade and splitter don’t turn. When you’ve corrected things, pull emergency stop up and you’re off again – no problem.
I’ve cut enough wood to fill more than fifty front end loader buckets this winter. The only delay was when 4 out of around 1000 knotted pieces of wood clung to the splitter – all I had to do was give it some sharp pelts with a sledgehammer.
The long and short of it is, if I could personify this piece of equipment (the opposite sex of course) I would call it darling. By the way, I’m not getting paid for this testimonial, so you can’t accuse me of having ‘KERCHING’ in my eyes.

“I am delighted with my Eagle. I used it for one hour and filled three 1 ton bags”
Mrs. Jones, Carmel, Llanelli, Carmarthenshire
“We have a Rayburn to heat water, run the central heating system and cook in our 3 bedroom stone farmhouse. Prior to buying the Eagle we produced the logs using a chainsaw and logsplitter. We spend about quarter the time producing the logs now with the Eagle than we used to do. I only said to my Husband the other day that it’s the best money we have ever spent”
Mrs. McKane, Capel Iwan, Newcastle Emlyn, Carmarthenshire
“Both my Husband and I think it’s fantastic. We use it behind our 18hp Kubota compact tractor, and despite the little power off the PTO we can split and cut the wood simultaneously. We had looked around for a while and failed to find anything that allowed us do both jobs the same time and then we came across the Eagle at the Pembrokeshire show in 2007. We subsequently saw it at your demonstration day and had to have it. It’s well worth the money”
