Product Feature: TOMCAT Model 250 AFE
One of our top sellers last year was the TOMCAT Model 250 AFE wood chipper, and with good reason! This extremely powerful chipper is fitted with a highly robust engine, has the capacity to process large branches with great efficiency and comes with a convenient roadworthy trailer, making it very popular amongst tree fellers, road contractors and rental companies.
The TOMCAT Model 250 AFE uses the robust, full torque Kirloskar 65Hp air-cooled engine, which is very low on maintenance and works in extreme temperatures and high dust areas. An 11.5” over centre clutch is attached to the engine which is used to engage the drum. The Kirloskar also comes with a 2 year warranty.
The wood chipper is capable of devouring 250mm branches because of the electronic reversing auto-feed function working with the hydraulics to regulate the in-feed speed and chipping capacity of the chipper. The hydraulic lift cylinder allows the operator to lift the top feed roller to allow access for large branches.
The lift cylinder also exerts pressure downward which breaks nasty side branches off and increases efficiency and chipping capacity. The PARKER hydraulic motors are connected to the two feed rollers that pull in branches and control the feed creating a consistent and small chip ideal for compost.
This model also comes standard on our SABS approved roadworthy trailer with a mechanical brake system which relieves extra pressure on the brakes of the towing vehicle, making it easy and safe to tow.
