The CX72RS has multiple systems. It has a two hydraulic feed rollers take care of feeding timber. The speed of the feed rollers can be continuously adjusted with the control valve. This is important to adjust the feed speed to the diameter of the material to be shredded. Smaller diameters can be fed faster than larger diameters.
If the feeder does jam, the feed can be reversed with the large handle on the hopper. Plus, the feed can be switched off with this handle. The unit is powered via the tractor’s hydraulics; a pressurised supply line and an un-pressurised return line are required, or alternatively a double-acting control unit and a flow rate of at least 10 L/min.
The chipper comes complete with PTO. A shear pin has also been built into one side of the PTO, which serves as a predetermined breaking point for safety reasons in the event of blockages or overload. This means that even larger tractors with more than 100 HP can be used with no problem.
You should have an engine power output of 90Horsepower to run the chipper effectively. The PTO must have a speed of 540 rpm.
The feed hopper has an opening of 91x70 cm at the top; at the bottom the opening measures 21x29 cm. It can shred fresh wood with a maximum diameter of approx. 20 cm, however it is prudent to adjust the diameter and hardness of the wood, fresh or dry accordingly.
The back part of the feed hopper can easily be flipped up and secured with a cotter pin for easy transport.
Unit maintenance: You can open the flywheel cover completely by unscrewing just one screw, giving you access to the 4 cutting blades. These cutting blades are double-sided so they can be turned around if required. The flywheel has a net weight of 96 kg and has fitted wings, which produces the incredibly powerful suction which ultimately expels the chippings out of the chute.
The discharge chute has a height of approx. 217 cm (plus the height of the lower link) and can be rotated 360 degrees. The ejection angle can also easily be changed. The chipper can expel chippings up to 10 metres.
