Key features

  • Provides operator safety with the patented bottom feed stop bar. The four-position upper feed control bar with dual stop positions and forward / reverse feed positions mounts over the feed table and enables the operator to stop the feed rollers and select forward or reverse operations.
  • A clutchless PTO system allows the cutter to be engaged without using a traditional slip clutch or idler pulley and without sliding the engine.
  • This machine offers direct access to all parts of the chipper for routine maintenance without having to climb on or remove any shields. A dripless oil filter and five grease points are provided to reduce work effort and speed up service time.
  • Protect your engine with the SmartFeed system, which monitors engine speed and stops or reverses the feed rollers if needed.
