  • CH9540H PTO Chipper

    The CH9540H is really the flagship model of the Bear Cat PTO range. You will see many of these on orchards around New Zealand, especially in the larger avocado orchards. It is also very popular with farmers as it allows them to stop burning their wood waste and instead transform it into valuable calf bedding or garden mulch. Some commercial contractors have even favoured this model as it is half the price of an engine powered equivalent.

    The unit can handle logs up to 9" in diameter and is plenty powerful enough to snap off tough side branches. The chipper has a smart feed system which detects if the tractors engine revs are dropping too low and cuts the feed roller off until it has recovered, then resumes feeding again. It also has a 'Try Again' system; when a log jams, it will automatically reverse the log back then try re-feeding it.

    Rotating 360 degrees, the 8 inch round discharge chute gives you accurate control over the flow of chips produced. Inside the chipper is a 30 x 1" thick, dynamically balanced disc that weighs 275 pounds. The disc has 4 reversible chipper blades and cuts against an adjustable 4-sided anvil. The feed roller on the CH9540H is 15" in diameter, containing 10 knife blades for enhanced, powerful feeding. A hydraulic jack is mounted on the hydraulic feed system for ease of maintenance. Plate steel construction means solid performance for hundreds of hours, and maintenance is enhanced by a hinged disc cover that provides wide open access to the chipper blades and disc.
