What about the rollers?

What about them?

There's another video here that shows the feed rollers.

Ummmm, I think I read somewhere that woodchippers with powdered infeed need to comply with a set of regulations. These include the height and length of the chute, safety bars and angle of the chute. Could be wrong but I didn't see any on that Lumag! Caveat Emptor!

Nope! It is nowt to do with the current argument of 'in, out, shake it All about!' but health and safety issue and those tend to cross boundaries! What we make here has to comply there and vice versa!

 

There are 'local' issues but are more to do with trailer ID and transport regs but, by and large, use regs will be very similar. Quite often, suppliers and manufacturers have to keep a watchful eye on 'duty of care' and insurance claims!

I understand that a very recent accident resulted in the loss of a limb, and no amount of "my risk assessment says....." Or "my method statement says....." will make an arm grow back!

Does seem pretty slow, I used a non feed lumag recently and it seemed to chip much faster than that.

I doubt it if U.K manufacturers wish to sell to the E.U then they need to produce machines which conform to E.U regs. No point in creating an entirely seperate model spec for U.K

(Except France which requires an extra stop button not fitted to the U.K spec machine I imported. Still rectified by fitting an inexpensive stop button)
