3-Point Hitch
Model 824

The Model 824 connects easily to any Category I, 3-point tractor, requiring only 16 HP and 540 R.P.M. at the P.T.O.  The 824 comes with its own hydraulic system and needs no oil from the tractor.  It has four adjustable legs which can be raised for transport through the woods, or lowered for storage and operation.  All welds are continuous for extra strength and durability.  The 360º swivel exhaust chute and exhaust flap are quickly and easily adjusted to direct the exhaust.

     No Ordinary 4" Chipper!

 

The extra wide infeed hopper allows the bushy branches to be pulled in and chipped.  This lessens the amount of pruning that needs to be done.  Control handle has a slow speed, fast speed, neutral and reverse to control chip size and feed speed, and is easily accessible from either side of the infeed.

 

 

 

The chipper disc is 18-7/8" in diameter and 3/4" thick, with six exhaust paddles, welded and gusseted for extra strength.  There are 2 chip blades, 1/2" thick x 7-1/4" long x 4" wide and they are double sided!

 

 

 

Salsco 824 ChipperThe 824 has only one options, feed sensing.  Feed sensing counts the impeller R.P.M. and if the tractor is getting loaded up due to a combination of large long logs and not enough horsepower, the Feed Sensing will stip the feed roll and allow the tractor to catch up.
