Chippers - Drum
The SKD (Straight Knife Drum) Chipper uses straight-edged knives mounted across the face of a cylindrical drum, fed from an inclined chute, to produce quality chips. The knife and discharge screen arrangements can be varied and fine-tuned to match a wide variety of furnishes including logs, boards, trim ends, edgings and short log ends (“lily pads”).
The anvil is mounted on a robust shear pin-protected pivoting carrier. This helps protect against damage from large pieces of metal or other unintended foreign objects. The overall chipper construction is exceptionally sturdy and maintainable.
