CH 160 OEM HF/HD Electric or Engin Powered Sawmill Chipper


The Valby CH 160 OEM HF/HD is a chipper unit which can be mounted stationary or on a trailer.  The chipper has a self-contained hydraulic system which powers the power feed.  The hydraulic system becomes active as soon as the chipper starts turning.

Chipper is powered from engines or electric motors.

The chipper has a 8" diameter V-belt pulley with grooves for "A" type belts.  The chipper can be turned 540 to 1500 rpm.  At 540 rpm, the chipper requires 30 HP to chip 6" diameter material.  The power requirement increases when the chipper is turned faster.

Ease of Operation:

Because of the low feeding point, material does not have to be lifted high, which assures easier feeding of the chipper.

Safety Features:

The Valby chippers do not have any knife motion toward the operator.  This reduces the risk of material flying back through the feed chute.  The discharge height is 86" above ground so the discharge is above eye level.  The accomplish safe operation in various wind directions, the Valby chipper's discharge direction is adjustable 360 degrees.  The chipper feeds the material smoothly and does not jerk it from the operator's hands.

Powerful Chip Discharge:

The fan is built into the chipper's disk so it also retains its rotational speed under heavy loads.  The chips can be directed in any desired direction as the discharge chute rotates 360 degrees.  The chips can be placed near or far by aiming the deflector bonnet.

Ease of Service:

The knives can be sharpened about 50 times before replacement.  The changing of the knives takes only 10 minutes.  The knives are easy to get to and no special tools are needed for the change.  The upper housing opens up for easy access to the knives.  The discharge chute is easy to remove so the chipper can be stored inside low buildings.


The Valby CH160 OEM HF/HD chipper produces uniform chips witch can be used for burning, animal bedding, landscaping and mulch.  The chipper is capable of chipping 6 1/4" diameter round wood.  It can handle residue from logging, land clearing, orchards and gardens.  The chipper can also handle slabs up to 9" wide.   The material is drawn into the chipper at the speed of 1 to 3 feet per second.   The chipper is self-feeding and draws in the material without pushing by the operator.
