GreenMech reveal the new Arborist and ArbTrak 190 wood chipper models.
Sales Director, Martin Lucas, said, “We’re expecting these new additions to our ARB range to make a big impression. They take their place alongside some of the most popular machines from our chipper portfolio.”
With all the features of its much admired Arborist 150 sister, the Arborist 190 has been designed to offer even greater productivity to make light work of heavily forked branches– featuring a 190mm chipping capacity. It has a generous 1200mm x 840mm infeed hopper, which aids bushy brash reduction and is coupled with a 190mm x 280mm letterbox-style infeed throat enabling heavily forked branches to be fed in easily. With a 45hp Kubota turbo diesel engine, the Arborist 190 is value-engineered for quality, strength, performance and economy.
The ArbTrak 190 is the latest addition to GreenMech’s celebrated tracked range of wood chippers, built to effortlessly get to those hard to reach locations. Similarly to the Arborist 190, it features a 190mm chipping capacity, a 1200mm x 840mm infeed hopper and a powerful 45hp engine. The tracked chassis system provides high ground clearance of 274mm, allowing easy access to sites over rough terrain and the 3kph tracking speed means the operator can get the job done quickly.
Both models comes fitted as standard with GreenMech’s patented Disc-Blade system giving up to 150 hours of chipping before the blades require re-sharpening. As with all machines, they also come with an electronically controlled no-stress feed system that reverses the feed rollers to relieve the chipper blades, allowing the rotor speed to recover quickly, yet again increasing output.
