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
The Valby CH 160 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 725 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 2000 RPM.
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 for safety.
Powerful Chip Discharge
A four wing 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 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
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 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 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
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.
