Farmi chipper / shredder for chipping and recycling
First FARMI chippers were designed for chipping firewood. Later on environmental concerns and needs have given new challenges to FARMI. Many states have forbidden burning of roadside and yard brush and trees. Different materials as paper and plastic should be removed from waste stream. FARMI has developed a universal chipper with which you can chip wood for fuel chips, landscape chips or composting. The same machine will shredd recyclable plastics through a screen for compact storage and shipping. And the same machine will turn unwanted newsprint into livestock bedding.
Farmi and Primero hydraulic cranes and forest trailers
Equipped with a hydraulic loader and a bogie trailer your farm tractor becomes a modern forest machine capable of nearly the same performance as a load-carrying forwarder. This is especially true for four wheel drive both in the tractor and in the trailer. Compared with special machines, the advantages of the farm tractor, crane, trailer combination are its lower initial cost and multiple use. FARMI cranes have outreach of 6,6 - 8,5 m and trailers net load capacity of 9 - 13 tons (Primero 6,7 m / 9,0 t). The biggest trailers have four wheel drive.
Farmi skidding winches
FARMI is one of the world's largest producers of farm tractor-mounted winches, pulling capacities from 3 to 8,5 tons. FARMI skidding winches are developed for both winching and skidding of whole trunks and shortwood. On rough ground and steep inclines where working with other machines is difficult or impossible or when annual tree quantity doesn’t justify bigger machines, winches are ideal. Many professionals have FARMI winches as often needed accessory for their base machines.
