Jensen a530 hopper change?

Recommended Posts

That folding hopper is the best for flat ground.

The funnel shaped one is best for undulating terrain,thats what is was designed for.

 

Who did you use to get the parts?I need some stuff for my machine and the local guy is worse than hopeless.

Got the hopper off Fawcett plant at Bentham. It was sat around for years doing nowt. 

 

In fairness if I add it up, second hand hopper, paint etc not Inc my time or a bit of fuel, it's cost me about 290.00 plus vat to change it over to this fold.down setup cheap :D especially for the limited use it gets its saved me splashing 12k ISH on another chipper :D

Is it light enough to be easily lifted off?

 

Are you selling the old one? Mine has the fixed hopper, I'd like to convert it to the removable hopper type, might be easier with the job half done.

The sloping bit you mean Dave? If so yes

 

Two man job but fairly easy then... but numb for one person

 

I've seen some sloping hoppers with it welded straight at the chipper. This one here has the hanging point 12-14" out from chipper and can swap hoppers over....  Only a few welded on tabs and some hinges for locating it out of some flat bar.
