Jo Beau, the Belgian manufacturer known for its compact woodchippers, stumpgrinders and scarifiers, have reinvented their complete line-up of professional chippers.
After 22 years it was time for a facelift. And what a result!
Not only did we tackle the looks, but we also made a lot of design improvements, construction reinforcements, and performance increases.
The improvements we have made include:
- Larger volumes. Jo Beau has strived to make the intake of larger volumes of branches and corresponding greenery possible. The in-feed opening has been increased by 20%, and the volume of the in-feed hopper increased by 6%! This makes it easy for the operator to get wider branches into the in-feed opening.
- Reinforced construction. Over the years, Jo Beau has built up a great deal of experience. They have used this knowledge in their renewed design. “We listen carefully to those who work daily with our Jo Beau chippers. It was mainly these users who suggested possible improvements. We use thicker, heavier steel plates in the most sensitive areas of the machine to make our wood chippers even more durable than they used to be.”
- Ergonomics. Ergonomics for the user has been the focus of our attention since the first design of the Jo Beau wood chippers. A low input of branches, easy movement of the machine and good balance, and importantly good accessibility to the engine and fuel tank, to name but a few.
- Design. All these points together led to the renewed designs being added to a range of machines for the 21st century. A sharp, tough and fresh look shows that we are ready for the future! Again, questions and comments from the end user were taken into account! The demand for more fixation eyes in order to be able to secure the machines better during transport is one example of this. On some models there are also new options, such as ‘LED work lights’ on the M500 wood chipper, which is now also equipped with the latest Honda iGX800 (25Hp / Electric Fuel Injection / electric throttle / no more throttle & choke cables).
Warranty. Jo Beau strongly believes in their own products and have therefore tinkered with the 'warranty conditions'. By registering your new Jo Beau Next Generation machine, Jo Beau doubles your warranty period for free! For professionals, the warranty period increases from 1 year to 3 years. For rental companies, the warranty period increases from 6 months to 1 year. For private users Jo Beau even goes from 2 up to 4 years!
