Wood chipper advice

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I live in Sicily where I have a lot of olive, citrus and almond prunings to deal with each year and need advice on wood chippers. I have found an Italian model that looks suitable but I can't find any reviews. It is a Zenia chipper made by Agrinova. 10 HP engine, chips up to 6cm diameter, uses a combination of hammers and knives, portable on two wheels. Below is the link. Any advice much appreciated. Thanks, Mike

Looks pretty good -simple design. Make sure yr able to get spare knives / sharpening done nearby . Engine is a common model n easy to service. K

This looks a little bit like the small Timber wolf design, which is ok if the material is straight but the entry to cutters is roughly square. The small drum type chippers (Greenmech, JoBeau, Peruzzo, Haeksler etc) chip about the same max diameter but the chute and blades are much wider so small forks will go down and get cut. I don't know if your prunings are straight, may not be an issue.
