DuraTech - Model TC-15 - Tree Chipper
From Tree Chipper
DuraTech's new TC-15 Tree Chippers boast a CAT C4.4 diesel engine and PT-Tech clutch. The TC-12 can grind trees and limbs up to 12 inches in diameter while the TC-15 can manage trees and limbs up to 15 inches. Both models features a spring loaded feed wheel with adjustable down pressure, the patented Automated In-Feed System that automatically adjusts the feed roller to material size (optional on the TC-12), an optional hydraulic gathering winch, and innovative hopper safety bars with easy and instant feed wheel shut off. Both models are available with either a pintle or ball hitch.
3' PINTLE OR 2-5/16' BALL HITCH
The TC-15 can be equipped with either a 3' Pintle or 2-5/16' Ball hitch. Either hitch includes a safety chain and breakaway brake switch for added safety.
PATENTED AUTOMATED IN-FEED SYSTEM
The patented automated in-feed system sensor is located at the top of the hopper. After sensing the height of the log, the feed wheel will automatically adjust the feed wheel to allow larger logs to enter more easily.
360 DEGREE ROTATING DISCHARGE SPOUT
The TC-15 is equipped with a flexible discharge system that features a 360 degree, hydraulic rotation and an adjustable chip spout.
PTTECH HPTO WET MICROPROCESSOR CONTROLLED CLUTCH
PTTech HPTO wet microprocessor controlled clutch with 4-groove belt system. The HPTO Clutch provides easy startups and provides torque overload protection for the disc, engine and driveline. For maximum control and protection the clutch comes with a clutch control interface.
FEED ROLLER W/ADJUSTABLE SPRING-LOAD, PATENTED AUTOMATED IN-FEED SYSTEM
The feed roller is equipped with adjustable, dual spring-loaded down-pressure, which continually applies optimum downforce on material flow. The patented automated in-feed system allows the operator to walk away as the auto feed governing system handles feeding. It is also equipped with hydraulics to lift the feed roller if required.
DUAL CONTROL PANELS
Control panels are accessible on both sides of the hopper. Each control panel contains an emergency stop button. An emergency bumper bar is also located on either side of the hopper for instant shut-off of the feed wheel.
OPTIONAL GATHERING WINCH
The optional gathering winch hydraulically helps pull larger logs up to the hopper. Free wheeling discharge allows for easier unrolling of winch.
