Unelmien Talo & Koti magazine gave ideas for the summer vacation in their newest issue. Among other ideas – the magazine wrote (6/2017): “It is Easier to Move Logs to the Fireplace or to the Sauna by Fleimio Woodhopper.”
The magazine presented the grey model of the fleimio woodhopper in their article with an emblem “Prefer Finnish Products”.
Fleimio Woodhopper is cart for transporting fire wood. Product is meant for those, who feel carrying firewood logs as heavy or for those, whose distance from the woodshed to the fireplace or to the sauna is long.
That is, it is a log cart that helps you to move more firewood easier. You are able to store and move approximately 2-3 times more firewood in it compared to a regular log holder. You are able to use it for rug rags if you like.
It is designed for outdoor use – for firewood logs that are longer than 25 cm. It is agile to drive, because it has only one wheel. It is possible to be stored in horizontal or vertical position.

Keski-Uusimaa newspaper wrote a story about Fleimio Woodhopper which was published 2.11.2016. Newspaper wrote:
“Firewood cart that is agile to drive over the roots on the yard.”
In this story, the entrepreneur from Tuusula Jussi Leimio tells that the idea behind the product was based on fact that in
nordic countries the firewood logs need to be carried from outside in. With the help of Fleimio Woodhopper this is easy.

newspaper writes, that Fleimio Woodhopper has already 60 retailers in Finland who sell the product. The northest retailer is l

Fleimio Woodhopper is a firewood cart that enables moving easier more firewood at once. It has been designed to open air keeping in mind, that it should be agile to drive since there are stones and small hills in the gardens.
Therefore it has only one wheel – making the driving experience agile and enjoyable. We recommend to drive with both hands on it.
The 26 cm diameter wheel is appropriate for the standard stairs: we recommend to drive in reverse and carefully in stairs.
Pile more than 25 cm long firewood on it as shown in the image above. It is possible to store the Fleimio Woodhopper in horizontal or vertical position which gives versatile storing opportunities for it.
In Finland approximately 10 million pile-m3 of firewood logs will be transported from the woodshed to the fireplace every year (source: VTT 2008). Normally these logs will be carried, which may be heavy duty and boring for some of us.
The Fleimio Woodhopper is designed and manufactured in Finland. We recommend to use it only in open air.
