The Valby CH 170 (previously the CH 160) chipper produces uniform chips which can be used for burning, animal bedding, landscaping and mulch. The chipper can chip soft and hard woods, green or seasoned. 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 into 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.

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. The large feed chute takes most unpruned branches, eliminating time-consuming pruning.

Safety 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. To 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.  The knives are counter-sunk into the disk, so the strain of chipping is absorbed by the backside of the knife.

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 discharge chute is easy to remove so the chipper can be stored inside low buildings.

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 160 can be ordered 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 HF 160 power feed has one large 10 1/8" diameter top feed roller.   The feed roller climbs on top of the material, and the teeth bite into the material and feed it in.

    Oil required from the tractor minimum 3, maximum 10, gallons per minute.  The chippers are also available with an internal hydraulic system. The system includes tank, filter and pump which is driven from the chipper axle.  This option is for tractors where the hydraulic flow is insufficient to run the power feed.
