ID that chipper

Recommended Posts

It's for sale, it could be the correct price. Seller says not sure if greenmech or Jensen. It's got a 2.5td lombardini engine and been remounted onto an alko turntable trailer. 10inch chip although possible only 8.

In the day they were! But I'm not sure if the controls comply with current H&SEE spec.

Well I went and bought it. Not seen it yet but a lad I know (who knows more about chippers than me) has looked it over and collected from South Wales. Will be in the yard late tonight! Exciting first chipper!

Kwickchip/tunnison/ts.. 

Was my first chipper. Comparable to a tw 190 nowhere near 10 inch..

Ours was hse compliant and that was 14 years ago..  Looks to be of a similar era to my machine so nearly 20 years old..

Got it back to yard seems to chip ok. Apparently wants a whiff of easy start to get going first start of the day ( thought he had said it would start without, but I was mistaken/misunderstood. That pretty disappointing.

Measures 9'' across the rollers. Anti stress is knackered. Sometimes you seem to need to nudge the stop bar to get it rolling as it sometimes stop mid branch. Also to get it to reverse you have to lift the hopper slightly. And there is a strange but potentially crucial mechanism that clips the hopper down. If anyone can remember ought about these chippers please help out!

I don't think our antistress ever worked, not for long.. Pretty sure someone on here told me a way of resetting it. It would work for a while then not..

I have a vague memory that there way a pin that you pulled out that stopped the hopper lifting up..
