Farming | Animal Feed | Bos-tot-Kos | Feed for Livestock | Feed from Encroaching Bush
The perfect wood chipper when you want to clear your farm of invader bush species such as Swarthaak (Black Thorn – Acacia Mellifera), Suidwes doring (Prosopis Glandulosa), Sekelbos (Sicklebush – Dichrostachys Cinerea) and convert it to valuable feed (Bos-tot-Kos) for your sheep, cattle and game.
Our TOMCAT Screen chippers limits oversized material with the use of a screen which allows the blades to cut the bigger material finer. Chip size can be adjusted and different screen size are available on request. An auger is used to discharge the chips to the side of the chipper. Auger extensions are available at an additional cost.
The screen chipper is similar to a standard TOMCAT wood chipper with the same drum, blades, in-feed hopper and hydraulic-feed roller. The big difference with the screen chipper is that it does not have a discharge chute and belly-plate . A screen is placed in front of the drum. The material that’s too big to go through the screen stays inside and gets chipped finer until it can pass through. This creates a fine uniform chip. If the screen is taken down to the smallest size it creates an end product which can be used directly as animal feed without further processing required.
The Model 150 AFE screen chipper has a hydraulic lift cylinder to increase efficiency and output by allowing the operator to crush side branches with the push of a lever. The drum housing is easy to open and access the drum to do blade maintenance. The screen can easily be taken out and replaced with a smaller or larger screen to manipulate the chip size. A choice between a HONDA V-Twin petrol engine or the very fuel efficient PERKINS Diesel engine or PTO-driven.
