New! 3 Point Gravity Fed PTO 5″ Wood Chipper
Our Wood Chipper is powerful and reliable, but still easy to handle. It shreds all kinds of woods up to 5 inches in thickness. It includes the PTO shaft with a shear bolt and connects to your CAT I 3-Point Hitch. The upper and lower pins are included and additional bushings for Cat II mounting are available.
For maximum performance and flexibility, we recommend you operate your tractor between 25 – 35 HP and a PTO shaft speed of 540 RPM. The direct PTO drive system turns the well-balanced 82 lb. rotor with its four 8″ knives, made from hardened tooling steel.
The fast-turning rotor is cutting the wood about 9 times per second and creates the centrifugal force pulling in the material. The counter knife setting produces shredded material from ¾ in. to 1 ½ in. size. The rotor speed and the specially designed rotor winglets create the air suction which throws out the shredded material and makes wood jams virtually impossible.
The heavy half-inch thick rotor disc is equipped with branch breakers processing very thin branches as well. The rotor is directly driven by the PTO shaft (which is included in the shipment).
The discharge funnel is located at 62in. in height and can be turned by 230° with an adjustable throwing angle. The shredded material can be thrown up to 20 ft. in distance making it easy to fill trailers or containers. The shredding capacity is 200 to 250 cu.ft./hr. depending on the type of material to be shredded.
