If you are a farmer, or live in a rural area, you know the benefits of power takeoff (PTO) equipment.
By attaching your power equipment to the drive shaft of you tractor, you can harness the tractor's sizable power and brute strength.
This is especially important when it comes to chipping big logs and branches.
PTO chipper shredders can handle branches up to 4 times the size as standard units.
|PTO Chippers (No Shredder) |
Many PTO chippers feature shredder capabilities, but some don't. Before choosing a PTO chipper, be sure it's equipped to meet your specific needs. Consider what you'll be using it for, and decide from there.
A PTO chipper with no shredder contains a large flywheel with a blade or multiple blades. As the flywheel gains momentum, it decreases its demand of the PTO, placing less stress on your engine's components.
These are designed for hard wood, around 2 1/2" or more in diameter. PTO chippers without shredders are great for reducing large limbs, branches, and some small trees into uniformly-sized chips that can be used for garden beds and walkways.
