Bigger, stronger and faster, the 160mm (6.25in) 230VTR Timberwolf tracked chipper attracted much attention at last month's Arb Fair held at Westonbirt Arboretum.

With a deeper chassis beam, it is fitted with longer and taller tracks, giving improved ground clearance of 195cm, traction and stability. Yet the chipper remains one of the most compact in its class - 1.1m wide with the tracks retracted. Extending them gives a width of 1.3m for increased stability.

All service items have easy access and a central greasing system eliminates the need to search for nipples. For transport across sites, up to 5.2kph can be achieved. A slow tracking speed of 2.6kph, maximum, is intended for manoeuvring up ramps and in tight spaces or in the workshop.

Powered by a Kubota V1505 four-cylinder diesel engine, the 230VTR has a 36-litre fuel tank, weighs 1,280kg and throughput is more than five tonnes per hour, depending on material.
