5-inch PTO Chipper
The CH5540HM comes equipped with a 20″ x 1.25″, 140 pound, dynamically balanced steel rotor with four reversible chipper blades, easy feeding with a big 28″ x 28″ feed hopper, and 5.7″ x 7″ chipper throat opening that allows small side limbs, 360 degrees rotating 6″ discharge chute.
The Chippers’ hydraulic feed system is electronically controlled. If the rotor speed drops below the optimal operational RPM range, the controller pauses the feed roller to allow the rotor to regain speed and then restarts feeding once optimal rotor RPM is achieved. This AutoFeed function allows for less fatigue on worn parts and maximizes efficiency.
NOTE – For Use On Tractors with PTO Horsepower Ratings From 25 hp to 45 hp
