Hud-Son CH 170 OEM HF/HD Wood Chipper



The Valby CH 160 OEM HF/HD is a chipper unit which can be mounted stationary or on a trailer.  The chipper has a self-contained hydraulic system which powers the power feed.  The hydraulic system becomes active as soon as the chipper starts turning.

Chipper is powered from engines or electric motors.

The chipper has a 8" diameter V-belt pulley with grooves for "A" type belts.  The chipper can be turned 540 to 1500 rpm.  At 540 rpm, the chipper requires 30 HP to chip 6" diameter material.  The power requirement increses when the chipper is turned faster.

The chipper is driven from a 8" diameter V-belt pulley (behind the sprocket).   The chipper has an oiltank, filter and a relief valve.  The chain drives the aluminum oil pump.

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.

Ease of Operation
Because of the low feeding point, material does not have to be lifted high, which assures easier feeding of the chipper.

Saftey Features
The Valby chippers do not have any knife motion toward the operator.  This reduces the risk of material flying back through the feed chute.  The discharge height is 86" above ground so the discharge is above eye level.  The accomplish safe operation in various wind directions, the Valby chipper's discharge direction is adjustable 360 degrees.  The chipper feeds the material smoothly and does not jerk it from the operator's hands.

Powerful Chip Discharge
The fan is built into the chipper's disk so it also retains its rotational speed under heavy loads.  The chips can be directed in any desired direction as the discharge chute rotates 360 degrees.  The chips can be placed near or far by aiming the deflector bonnet.

Ease of Service
The knives can be sharpened about 50 times before replacement.  The changing of the knives takes only 10 minutes.  The knives are easy to get to and no special tools are needed for the change.  The upper housing opens up for easy access to the knives.  The discharge chute is easy to remove so the chipper can be stored inside low buildings.

The Valby CH160 OEM HF/HD chipper produces uniform chips wich can be used for burning, animal bedding, landscaping and mulch.  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 ito 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.
