The propulsion system is a three-cylinder liquid-cooled diesel engine with capacity of 40,1 hp furnished with a bonnet. 40-liter fuel tank allows several hours’ work in the field.
The essential equipment of the chipper includes a hydraulic propulsion system servicing the feeding rollers and driven by its own hydraulic pump, a lever system of the hydraulic divider which allows changing of feeding rollers’ direction, a mechanical overrunning braking system and a hook-type coupling for towing adjusted to its interchangeable part - a grip for using a ball pin or a towing eye.
The chipper is also additionally equipped with an electronic system of work control, protecting the machine against excessive duty through temporary stopping the feeding.
