The Buckeye Denailer

The Ultimate Nail Puller for Removing Hardware in Reclaimed Wood

“The Buckeye Denailer” is a high quality built, manually operated machine that is used to pull nails and misc hardware from reclaimed lumber and barn beams.

“The Buckeye Denailer” uses a set of custom, machine-hardened steel jaws to pull the nails. Riding on a 2-axis carriage, the jaws are pushed into the lumber by a vertical high pressure hydraulic cylinder, then clamped on hardware for extracting. The lumber is held in place by 3-clamps.

  • Very easy to operate
  • Enables you to work long shifts without being tired
  • Takes the place of 6 or more employees extracting by hand
  • 50% less wood pullout
  • Very short payoff period
