Got myself a PTO chipper - Take 2!

Recommended Posts

I managed to source myself another chipper - again not local but I'm having it picked up by a bloke who knows what he's looking at so all should be well. I am however a bit baffled by the specs.

 

It was listed on ebay as a 10", but I thought the TP760 was only 6-8"? The hopper comes off to one side and the frame has a towing pin on it so you can chip into the mog or trailer, although you wouldn't want to tow too much weight I wouldn't have thought. The seller seems to think it weighs about 1.5t, which sounds like a lot! I thought it was the older version of the tp200 sized machine? I'll have it and it'll work either way, but is it really that heavy?:confused1:

Its about 1 ton, i transported one back on a hilux once and i dont think it was over weight, what you do need to make it the muts nuts is a speed up gear, there is one on ebay for around £200 , will try and find you the number, i put one on mine and it transformed the machine, tweeks it from 540 to 1000

PTO speed up gear box / wood chipper PTO / compact tractor PTO | eBay

 

neil might not need that if he has a 540/1000 pto box on the 406 unimog, i have a 406 and run my tp on a 1000, a ton seems heavy for a 6" tp i have the 160 and I'm sure its -600kg.

 

Im not sure on the weight , i do know when i drove back from Penzance to Taunton with heavy duty rear springs on the hilux it sat right down, steering was light as a feather and it almost pulled weeleis at junctions. regarding pto speed i ran it on tick over on a u1200 , thats chipping on tick over on 540 pto through to the speed up gear, i used hardly any fuel on a days chipping and it never slowed the chipper, 6" 0r 7" it just sucked it all in and spat it out, when i now look back after owning other more modern chippers with things like stress control, nothing would slow the chipper or its engine speed on the mog.

You might be correct on the weight then because when i drop a ton of ballast in my hi lux and it starts to sit down, that box does sound a good investment in the long run for the fuel savings alone, as even on cherry you can power through it chipping all day.

Well chaps, it looks like a moment to brace yourselves for "Got myself a chipper take 3"...

 

I've been talking to a mate up north and it's just what he needs. My mog linkage still needs work and I don't have a banana box for the pto, so I've passed the deal over to him rather than have it sit in my garage for months. It was a bargain too:001_rolleyes:

I forgot to say - thanks for all your replies. You never know I might find another TP760 at a later date so the info is useful.

 

My mog does have a 540/1000rpm box on it, but I can see how that speed up gear could be handy for some. I wonder if it would have the torque to run in 1000rpm and use this box, so you'd get really good speed at tickover for small brash!
