Auto reverse stress control box

Recommended Posts

Evening all!

The autostress box on my Bandit chipper has died, and is quite an expensive replacement as it’s a defunct unit and the replacement also needs a new wiring loom.

Before I bite the bullet I just wanted to explore all my options. I remember someone previously posting up a generic off-the-shelf stress control unit with an auto-reverse facility for retrofitting onto chippers but cannot remember any more about it (it was American I think). Any ideas people? Cheers, Dan

We have a timeable reverse pulse on our current models. Takes pulses off of the alternator to measure speed too.

The chipper has all the hydraulics/valves/speed sensors etc in place and working, but the actual sealed-for-life electronic box of magic  somehow filled up with water and now doesn’t work (although it switches on/lights up/looks normal enough etc). 

I’m certain it is new box time, but wanted to see what the options are as I’m not that bothered about plug and play (there aren’t that many inputs into the box to cause too much re-splicing concern - it’s a pto chipper so only needs power in, speed sensor input and then command outputs).

Dan, the box on our TMP is pretty simple but has no pulse reverse. Jade will explain it or send a wiring diagram.

Have you spoken to an electrical company who are into circuit boards and such like. Sometimes it is possible to have the control box sent away for specialist repair. 

 

Failing that, as Pete says the PTO GreenMech no stress system is fairly basic and could probably be retro fitted to something else. The parts will probably see you in over 1k though.

Is Jade a new recruit in the technical department?

Or did Jase finally have the op?!...

I remembered Daniel Murphy video about chipper spares, it's Bandit but don't know if the same thing you are looking for

 

Same sort of thing, mine looks different to that though.
