Features & Benefits

Patented bottom feed stop bar

Enhance operator safety with the patented bottom feed stop bar with dual reset/hold-to-run buttons. The feed stop bar is strategically located to make it possible for an operator to strike the bar and shut off the feed either intentionally or automatically in an emergency.

SmartFeed system

Increase operator productivity and reduce strain on components with the exclusive SmartFeed system. The feed-sensing control system monitors motor current and automatically stops and reverses the feed roller when processing larger, hardwood material.

Large feed opening

Avoid having to trim material before feeding into the chipper, thanks to the large 30.5-cm x 43.2-cm (12-in x 17-in) feed opening.

Produces consistent-sized chips

Produce consistent-sized chips for biofuels, waste reduction and other industrial uses.

Siemens induction motors

Chip through tough material via its two Siemens induction motors ― a 55 kW (74 hp) motor that powers the drum and a 3 kW (4 hp) motor on the infeed rollers.

IP55 rated enclosures

Operate without environmental damage to electric motors thanks to IP55 rated enclosures that protect from dust and low pressure jets of water.
