The 8B high-flow chipper attachment reduces branch volume 10-to-1, has a variable gpm setting, a reset override system and a smart valve and pressure valve. The attachment is approved for use on the company’s machines with high-flow hydraulic systems, including skid-steer loaders (models S160H through S300H), compact track loaders (models T180H through T300H) and the Toolcat 5600H utility work machine. The variable gpm setting enables the chipper attachment to operate within two different gpm flow ranges: 26 – 31 gpm and 32 – 37 gpm. The smart valve feature monitors the chipper disc speed and limits plugging of the chipper head. When the chipper disc speed reaches a threshold level, the smart valve slows the feed roller until the chipper disc has recovered. Once the disc reaches maximum speed, the feed roller will resume. An in-line pressure valve controls the feed roller’s auto-reverse/auto-forward feature. If the system reaches the maximum psi level, the feed roller goes in auto-reverse and -forward until an optimal pressure level is maintained.
