Forestry Wood Chipper CH180
The Avant CH180 wood chipper attachment is an efficient and modern disc chipper equipped with 4 blades. It is for use with Avant 600-800 series compact articulated mini loaders. Dry twigs, branches and tree tops up to 180 mm diameter can be chipped with this attachment. It makes 12 mm long chips.
Material is loaded manually into the infeed chute. The chipper is equipped with hydraulic feeding rollers and a Smart Feed system which monitors rotating speed of the cutting disc. If too much wood is loaded in the infeed chute and the speed of the disc slows down considerably, the rollers reverse slightly to prevent blocking and stoppage of the chipper.
Adjustments of the Smart Feed system can also be programmed if necessary. The required electric current to the Smart Feed system is conducted either with the cable delivered with the chipper, or with the optional Opticontrol system on the mini loader.
The discharge chute can be rotated manually 290° and the throwing height can also be adjusted by hand. Thanks to the modular design maintenance is easy, and with the discharge chute turned into transport position the CH180 is a compact package.
The Avant CH180 Wood Chipper attachment complies with the latest EN 13525 standard for wood chippers. It meets the Standards criteria for the distance between the infeed chute and blades (min. 1500 mm), and infeed chute’s bottom must be at least 600 mm above the ground. The Smart Feed system also includes an electric emergency stop switch.
