Tp175 chipper

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Thinking of ungrading from my ancient tp150 to a new tp175.

Does anybody here own one or has anybody any experience with them.

Thank you

Ed

I'm also 'considering' moving to a TP175.

One thing I have noticed over the years.

 People rarely have good words to say about trouble free things.

The absence of discussion over this chipper leads me to believe that is a rare beast and a bloody marvel of Danish engineering blessed with such remarkable reliability that never a cross word is spoken online about it.

 Now just try Googling TW150 or Quadchip and you'll fill your boots with both complaints and praise on the same thread.

I've looked at them too. Main dealer is too far for me to go look but will arrange a demo. I really like the chute design on them, specs look great and they're much cheaper than tw and forst equivalent

I have the older version, the 160, its a good little chipper, it pulls stuff in nicely although not as aggressive as a Forst or TW, however the build quality is good and the chip quality is excellent. If I have a complaint with the TP's its that they are a but fussy when it comes to maintenance, they like sharp knives and well adjusted anvils or they don't pull the stuff in as well.

I’ve never moved an Anvil in any TP Tom, they don’t need moved no matter how much the blade reduces in size.( I was told )
TP’s are great, well built, no drama machines!

Thats true Stevie because the blades aren't tapered, they do need turning however as once they round over it doesn't pull the stuff in as well. If you haven't turned the anvil its well worth trying.

Turning to a new edge yes, I thought you meant adjusting like other Chippers need doing after every sharpen to keep the gap right.

Is it only drum style chippers which require anvil adjustment after sharpening?

 I guess moving anvils on regular chippers (if design allows) also governs chip size.

I’ve only ever heard good things about tp when I do hear. I have a 2003 tp150 which is beastly for what it is, just old now, it’s been to the engineers twice this week to have bits welded and with a big work load we need something newer now.
