The FRED hydraulic feed PTO wood Chipper is one of the most simple and lowest maintenance on the market. We offer the chippers with our hydraulic feed and they all feed extremely well.
The benefit of the hydraulic model is the feed speed can be made faster or slower that it can chip at a speed that the out shoot can handle.
Using the hydraulic feed model there is less preparation work cutting branches to feed as the duel barrel feed rollers will drag the branches in and this is a great help when chipping the heads of trees.
The feed has 3 settings, neutral, feed and reverse.
The Hydraulic feed chipper runs 2 support arms to each side of the hopper with a hydraulic motor on each side, many similar looking hydraulic chippers only run a single sided support arm that results in the mount twisting through constant load and vibrations.
It runs a direct drive from the PTO shaft without the need for gears or belt drives.
Very little horse power is required with heavy weight rotor fitted with 4 double chipping sides blades.
The horse power range is from 30hp – 100hp, tractors in the lower end of this rang will struggle operating at the full 6’’ capacity when chipping hard woods, knots etc., slowing down the feed speed will help smaller tractors work efficiently.
Our chipper bodies are CNC machined to give 100% alignment of greasable rotor bearings.
Many chipper on the market are far too complicated and a simple job such as replacing blades can be very difficult. The FRED PTO chipper gains complete access to the rotor for servicing by removing one bolt and the top half of the housing opens for easy access, the hopper can also be fully opened by removing only 2 bolts and nuts.
The internal paddles fitted to the rotor through the chips out the shoot and they also create a vacuum assisted by the vents at the front of the housing to help discharge lighter material.
They are a must have item around the farm, eliminating the need to burn during fire restrictions and great mulch for the garden.
Oversized Chipping Rotor
At the heart of the BXS Chipper is an oversize heavy duty rotor and double chipping blades. The large diameter rotor has a faster tip speed for improved chipping action and the heavy gauge steel keeps your momentum to power through 4'' to 6'' diameter tree trunks. CLICK HERE FOR A PICTURE
Hydraulic Feeding Hopper
The hydraulic-feed hopper is designed to angle the brush against the rotor and blades, pulling the branches into the chipper. CLICK HERE FOR A PICTURE
Easily control where you want the chips with the double adjustable Exit Chute. The chute swivels 360 degrees and the top deflector adjusts the distance. CLICK HERE FOR A PICTURE
Double-sided Chipping Blades
