Wood chipper


Skorpion 500 RB is a drum-type chipper, meant for cooperation with a min. 120 HP farm tractor. The drive is transmitted from PTO shaft of a tractor with the speed of 540-750 revolutions per minute. Due to the large size of the material to be chipped (with a diameter up to 300 mm) this chipper is dedicated to the mechanical loading of wood wastes with the use of a hydraulic crane (as a standard the chipper is equipped with base for its attachment). Large loading area and 550 x 370 mm inlet allows chipping broad branches and other bulky forms of wood wastes.
The feeding system consists of installed on a rocker 380 mm in dia. toothed upper roll, which pulls in and press the wood and toothed metal crawler (680 mm in length), preceded by the foldable feeding table with additional, 600 mm in length metal crawler. The roll and crawlers are both driven by hydraulic motors, powered by own hydraulic pump, installed on the chipper.
A sector-type drum with four cutting knives (one rotation of the drum for one full cut) allows to achieve a very high potential of the chipper with a relatively low power of the tractor. Knives can be sharpened several times – even 55 mm of the nominal size - assuring theirs long-term use.
Installed screen ensures high regularity if chips. Chips are advanced from under the screen to the fan by two screw conveyors, than discharged thorough the ejection tube. This chipper is equipped with hydraulically foldable ejection tube with automatic swivel control by 240°, both controlled by hydraulic divider or joystick.
The construction of the chipper is set on a single axial chassis allowing the towing of the machine on all types of roads. As a standard, the machine is equipped with a rigid suspension without brake, allowing to move it with a speed up to 25 km/h. Chipper can also be equipped with a sprung axle and 40 km/h towing speed or an air-type suspension and 80 km/h speed – both axles are equipped with air brakes.
Loading table positioned at 90° to the direction of travel allows simultaneous transport of the chipper and trailer with a tractor (chipper is equipped with approved towing device).
The chipper is equipped with modern LED road lighting.
As a standard, the chipper is also additionally equipped with one of the most advanced electronic system of work control available on European market automatically protecting the propulsion system of the machine against overload/excessive duty through temporary stopping the feeding unit.
Easily editable software of the No-stress system provides a simple way to change the settings of the machine adapting it to individual needs. Preset "thick wood" and "thin wood" modes allow fast and easy change of the operation of the chipper in order to match the current material to be shred and increase the effectiveness of work. Total- and daily- hour meter is built into this system.
Produced chips may be used as a solid fuel for heating, as a raw material for production of paper, furniture boards, and a
