Remote control for pto chipper

Recommended Posts

Hi.

we run a crane-fed Jensen pto chipper. Depending on site ,space,type of stuff to be chipped etc , we either run it on crane tractor (Valtra/botex) or on a second tractor.

running on crane tractor is fine for nice long material but for small more fidgety stuff it’s easier to use second tractor and see the feed rollers as you feed with crane or mini digger.

i am hoping to set up a remote control to reverse the feed rollers when I need to without getting out of crane tractor or having to have someone on the ground (which is not ideal from a safety point of view)

Any of the systems I’ve found on-line e.g. winch remotes require you to hold button on for both forward and reverse . I need forward to ‘click’ on, and I need stop to hold stopped. It would be okay to have to hold button pressed for reverse.

has anyone fitted simular system or can suggest something that might suit?

 Thanks

I wanted exactly the same when I had my Farmi 260 and fully understand where you're coming from.

Farmi now have such as system as an option which may be worth a look, but for something custom I'd ring Global, as they're well used to fitting such systems to all sorts of bandit custom builds.

Fuelwood do one for the manual heizohacks. It's got a stop/start button, one for forwards and one you hold for reverse. Costs around £1400 I think.

Ac price built one on to my Heizohack, I have control over feed / reverse, top roller lift / push down, rotate discharge chute, tilt deflector on discharge chute, and an on off switch. Its is very handy, but I dread to think what I paid for it. @John Shutler might know, as I think he was pricing it up for his machine.

The remote on our stump grinder is playing up and we have not had any luck in finding anyone to repair it.  

We have been quoted £2-3K for a new one.

I think you just need three solenoid controlled spool valves?

My Farmi Ch260 has a remote control to the tractor and its a pretty simple set up.

 

My mate works on alot of Radio controlled Hiabs and can get a kit with the Radio controlled valves for about a grand.
