PTO Chipper Trailerized Options
All our PTO (tractor driven) chippers are built standard on a base with skids that hooks up on 3 point of the tractor. Trailerized options makes it easier to connect and transport a PTO chipper over longer distances. It also takes a lot of strain off of the tractors 3-point especially when the chippers 3 point hydraulic system cannot pick up the weight of chipper. Trailerized options are available upon request at an additional cost on all our PTO chippers. We currently have 3 trailerized options:
Any of our new Generation 3 TOMCAT PTO chippers can easily be converted to a farm trailer. The drawbar, wheels, axle, bolts and nuts are sold separately as a kit. The drawbar easily fits to the front section of the chipper. The wheels and axle connects with four bolts and nuts.
40km/h Roadworthy Trailer
The SABS approved roadworthy 40km/h trailer option is has an un-braked axle and can be towed on public roads at speeds of up to 40km/h. Its got leaf springs and an eye coupler connects up to the tractor’s tow bar. It’s got a lower feeding height than the Farm Trailer option and reduces operator fatigue. This option is not available after-market and must be ordered before-hand.
