HYCS01 BCS Chipper |
The first function allows chipping tree limbs into pieces that are approximately 3/16 in size. As a limb of up to three inches in diameter is inserted into the side chute of the Chipper, it encounters a high carbon steel chipping blade fastened to a 37 pound flywheel that is rotating at an unstoppable 3500 revolutions per minute. As it passes to within 3/16 of a heavy steel anvil, this blade shears off a chip of wood once for every revolution. The power of this compact, but powerful chipping action has to be seen to be believed. The output is a uniform chipped wood product suitable for ground covering, or mulch.
