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.
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.
