Timber is one of the most valuable, renewable resources the world has.
It is becoming less acceptable to open burn “waste” timber as it is a valuable energy and environmental resource.
S&G now has available equipment to fully utilize this resource.
This system compromises a:
- Tree felling equipment.
- High powered tractor mounted chipper (chip up to 400mm log) with hydraulic grapple.
- Haul out bins.
The chipper is mounted on a “Reversible Console” tractor (300 Hp) fitted with a hydraulic arm grapple.
There is now no need for personnel to “hand feed” timber into the chipper, as the operator can do it all in the cab. Massive WH&S benefits.
This chip can either be distributed onto rows/ground or, into a bin towed by the tractor, to be dumped where needed for composting or other utilisation.
Capacity of up to 150m3/Hr is possible.
Timber resource includes:
- Sawmill waste
- Plantation prunnings/thinning’s
- Logging residue
- Storm damage clean-up
- Noxious weeds (Camphor Laurel, etc.)
