Nigel posted a topic in Large equipmentOur company Fletcher Stewart (Stockport) Limited has been advised by the UK Health & Safety Executive (HSE) that it is our responsibility to bring to your attention a recent development regarding Jo-Beau Woodchippers. Following a lengthy investigation by the HSE into the reach distances that Jo-Beau Woodchippers are manufactured to. The HSE have concluded that all new machines must now have their in-feed distances increased. The reason for extending the in-feed distance on these machines is to reduce the risk of the operator coming in to contact with the cutting system. You will see from the picture below an extension tray is now fitted to the model M300. If you have any concerns regarding this matter or if you wish to bring your machine up to the standard now stipulated by the HSE on new machines please contact the manufacturer directly at the address below. To obtain this modification all enquiries must be directed to the original manufacturer and not to Fletcher Stewart.
