Durable Design
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 600 lb. weight. The heavy cutter disk carries a lot of inertia, which helps the chipper run smoother, is easier on the tractor, and enables bigger pieces to be chipped without stalling the tractor. The quality spherical roller bearings enable the chipper to be used at any PTO speed, up to 1000 RPM.

CH 140F with a direct feed

Ease of Operation
    The low feeding point ensures effortless feeding of the chipper. The operator can stand with a straight back.  The chipper stands by itself on the ground and is easy to hook up or remove from the tractor.

Safety Features
    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 placing the chips near or far. The chipper feeds the material smoothly and does not jerk it from the operator's hands.  The knives are counter sunk into the disk for safety.

Ease of Service
    The upper-housing of the chipper folds up for easy access to the knives.  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 to, and no special tools are needed for the change.

    The discharge chute is low so the chipper can be stored in low buildings.

The lip of the feed chute extension can be folded up for transport.  The power feed can also be folded up for transport, so it will not protrude outside the width of the tractor.

Interchangeable Feed Chutes
    The feed chutes of the chipper are on a hinge, so the chute can be folded to the side for access to the anvil and knives. The feed chutes are detachable. One can hook up either feed chute option to an existing machine.

    The F 150 is a regular drop feed where the knives pull in the material. The HF 160 has a hydraulic power feed roller which feeds in the material.

Hydraulic Power Feed Option
The Valby CH 140 can be ordered or retrofitted 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 grab it in. The roller is spring loaded and it pushes the material together so that it will fit through the feed chute.  Oil required from the tractor minimum 3, maximum 10 gallons per minute.  If your tractor does not have sufficient hydraulics to run the power feed, click here for information about a chipper with an independent hydraulic system.
