Hud-Son CH 222HF Wood Chipper

CH260 & Loader


Whole tree chipping with hydraulic loaders.
The Valby CH 260 loaders can be adapted for whole tree chipping because they can be fed with knuckleboom loaders. 

Chipping cruiser mounted on a tractor.
With a suitably sized tractor (80 HP and up) one can hook up the CH 260 chipper behind the knuckleboom loader.  The chippers feed is controlled by a control box which the loader operator has in the cab.  The operator can select from the control box for the feed rollers to stop, feed in, or reverse.
Using your knuckleboom loader to feed the chipper.
One can also use a knuckleboom loader on a truck or tractor to feed the chipper because the control box, that controls the feed rollers, has a long cord.   This method has the additional advantage that the loader unit can be placed in a location where the operator can see the feed rollers

Optional Equipment
1) Belly pan
2) Radiator shield
3) Valve stem protectors
4) Tractor tire chains

The control box is operated from a 12 Volt DC system.  The box is on the end of a cord, so it can be easily moved to wherever the knuckleboom is operated from.
Uniform Chips
   All Valby CH 260 models have the same chip mechanism.  The chips have to pass through two sets of blades and an optional crusher screen before they are blown out from the chipper.  This chip mechanism produces exceptionally uniform chips which can be, for example, augered without further screening.
Double Disc Rotor
    The boxed double disc rotor provides superior rigidity. The disc weighs 560 lbs. and has a diameter of 41".  The rugged rotor houses three full-size 11.8" wide knives. The full-size knives are the key to the Valby chipper's high production.

Adjustable Chip Size

   The chip size is continuously adjustable between ¼" and 1" length.  This range covers almost all possible uses of wood chips.  Some typical chip sizes are shown below.  Bottom left is ¼" animal bedding. Top left, 1/2" energy chip. Bottom right, 3/4" pulp chip.  Top right, 1" landscaping chip.

    The solid construction of the rotor enables trees up to 10 ¼" in diameter to be chipped.  Chip size and tree size determine production. The production ranges from 13 to 52 cu. yards per hour or approximately 3 to 15 tons of chips per hour. The chip size produced determines how fast the trees are pulled into the chipper. When producing ¼" chips the tree will feed in about one foot per second. The feed is about 3 ft. per second for 1/2" chips.

    The feed of the Valby chippers is about 10 ¼" at the anvil. The maximum width of the opening is 24". The thickness and form of the slab will determine how large a piece can fit in.

    The hydraulic feed restricts the slab width to 10 ¼" as the slabs are fed in on a straight angle to the anvil.


Spherical Roller Bearings
     The high quality bearings enable the chipper to be used at PTO speeds of up to 1000 RPM.  This allows high production and powerful chip discharge, which is needed when chips are blown into 40 ft. long trailers.

Hydraulic Power Feed
The hydraulic motors transfer to the feed rollers up to 10 HP of dragging power to pull in the material. Christmas trees or other bushy materials feed in with little or no pruning.  Small trees can be fed in with branches and all.

    The bottom feed roller is fixed. The top roller is spring loaded. The top roller climbs on top of the material and starts to drag it in. The top roller pushes in the branches against the bottom roller and the branches get squeezed tight so they fit through the chute. The turning speed can be adjusted from a knob on the hydraulic valve.  The forward, stop, and reverse of the feed rollers
are controlled by the control box, which is shown above.
