Power take off on utility tractors have become a primary source for much of the work around farms, orchards, golf courses, etc. Any place where you need to turn a pile of branches into a pile of chips.

You choose – self feed or hydrostatic hydraulic feed for infinite feed settings – these chippers mount on your three point hitch and hook directly to the PTO for quick setup and power on demand.

The CH8540 boasts a 9-inch maximum capacity and infeed opening. Rotating 360 degrees, the 8-inch round discharge chute gives you accurate control over the flow of chips produced. The 30″ x 1.25″ thick, 275 pound dynamically-balanced disc, adjustable 4-sided anvil, four reversible chipper blades. Plate steel construction means solid performance for hundreds of hours, and maintenance is enhanced by a hinged disc cover that provides wide open access to the chipper blades and disc.
