CH 140 Skid Steer Mounted Hydraulically Powered Wood Chipper
A Hydraulically Powered Woodchipper
The Valby woodchipper adds versatility to the contractor's arsenal of skid-steer loader implements. The skid-steer enables the chipper to be used in hard-to-reach and environmentally-sensitive areas.
The woodchipper is powered by oil flow from the skid-steer loader. The chipper has 3/4" pipe thread hoses for pressure and return sides. Quick couplers to match the skid-steer's standard are not supplied with the chipper.
A hydraulic motor powers the chipping disk of the chipper.
The Valby CH 140 chipper produces uniform chips which can be used for burning, animal bedding, landscaping and mulch. The chipper can chip soft and hard woods, green or seasoned. The chipper is capable of chipping 6 1/4" diameter round wood. It can handle residue from logging, land clearing, orchards and gardens. The chipper can also handle slabs up to 9" wide. The material is drawn into the chipper at the speed of 1 to 3 feet per second. The chipper is self-feeding and draws in the material without pushing by the operator.
Ease of Operation
The low feeding point ensures effortless feeding of the chipper, therefore, allowing the operator to stand with a straight back. The chipper stands by itself on the ground and is easy to hook up or remove from the tractor. The large feed chute takes most unpruned branches, eliminating time-consuming pruning.
The Valby CH 140 is the machine for people who have use for a small, durable chipper. You know this machine was built to last because of the hefty 690 lb. weight. The heavy cutter disk carries a lot of inertia, which helps the chipper run smoothly.
The Valby chippers do not have any knife motion toward the operator. This reduces risk of material flying back through the feed chute. The discharge height is under 4 feet so the chips fly out below eye level. To accomplish safe operation in various wind directions, the Valby chipper's discharge direction is adjustable 360 degrees. An adjustable deflector bonnet enables blowing the chips near or far. The chipper feeds the material smoothly and does not jerk it from the operator's hands. The speed of the feed roller can be adjusted to the operator's liking. The knives are counter sunk into the disk for safety.
Ease of Service
The knives can be sharpened about 50 times before replacement. The changing of the knives takes about 10 minutes.
The knives are easy to get at, and no special tools are needed for the change.
The discharge chute is low so the chipper can be stored in low buildings.
Hydraulic Power Feed Option
The Valby CH140 HMD can be ordered with a hydraulic power feed. The power feed is useful when whole trees with branches are chipped.
The hydraulic feed is controlled from a control bar which runs on top of the feed chute. The operator can select feed, stop and reverse from the control bar.
The large 10 1/8" diameter top feed roller will climb on top of the material and drag it in. The roller is spring loaded and it pushes the material together so that it will fit through the feed chute.
The bottom lip of the feed chute can be folded up for transport. The power feed chute can also be folded up so that it will not protrude outside the width of the skid-steer loader.
