With impending emissions legislation coming into force in 2019, requiring all new diesel engines over 19kW (26hp) to include DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) technology, it’s likely that diesel power unit costs will increase. In order to offer our customers a cost-effective alternative to diesel powered chippers over 19kW, GreenMech have introduced the new Arborist 150p.
Fitted as standard to the Arborist 150p is a 37hp petrol engine that performs at an undeniable output to provide impressive throughput of materials up to 150mm (6in). Like all GreenMech Arborist chippers, the Arborist 150p is designed with the same proven, deep-beam, high tensile steel chassis construction for strength and reliability. Insulated steel panels provide excellent noise abatement and the panels can be easily removed enabling good access for routine maintenance.
A generous 970mm x 790mm in-feed hopper which aids bushy brash reduction, coupled with a 150mm x 230mm letterbox-style in-feed throat opening enables heavily forked branches to be fed easily. This has the effect of reducing the number of chainsaw cuts by hundreds per day and thereby increasing output.
The twin vertical hydraulic rollers efficiently crush wood material with minimal lateral movement. The electronically controlled ‘No-Stress’ feed system reverses the feed rollers to relieve the chipper blades, allowing the rotor speed to maintain optimum chipping speed, therefore increasing output.
As standard, the Arborist 150p comes fitted with our patented Disc-Blade system, giving up to 150 hours of chipping before requiring re-sharpening.
If however, diesel is your preferred choice, then consider the Arborist 150 fitted with the 19kW (26hp) Kubota diesel which, right now, meets the new legislation requirements, is under 750kgs and is available at a price to bring a smile to any operators wallet.
