CH260 & Loader
EASY TO OPERATE *
POWERFUL CHIP DISCHARGE * EASILY SERVICED * INTERCHANGEABLE
Whole tree chipping with
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.
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.
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

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.
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
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.
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"
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.
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
Hydraulic Power Feed
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.
