Split-Fire offers a line of heavy duty 5-inch wood chippers designed for continuous heavy-duty use. Designed with simplicity, built with a low parts count, and finished with a durable powder coat, these machines are low maintenance and don’t require annual overhauls. All Split-Fire self-contained wood chippers utilized Honda power and heavy-duty BLM clutches for power transfer. These wood chippers have been designed with safety and ruggedness in mind and have been extensively tested and proven in the machinery rental market. Split-Fire’s 3-point hitch wood chippers use the same chipping box design as the self-contained models. The 3-point hitch units are equipped with a heavy-duty direct drive gearbox to transfer the PTO (no belts and clutching). All PTO shafts utilize shear pins to protect the PTO from power surges. This design keeps maintenance and the parts count low. Each 3-Point Hitch Wood Chipper comes with a 2-year factory warranty. Built to last, Split-Fire’s 4000 series high-performance wood chippers take in branches up to three feet per second. The 4000 series chipper is built using 5/16-inch and 3/8-inch plate around the chipper box and a 140 lbs fully machined rotor for durability and safety. All machines are then sandblasted, and powder coated for a longer lasting finish.
