Following on from the success of the S426TDHB road tow and S426TFTR tracked shredders, Timberwolf is adding a PTO version of this multi-purpose shredder to the range. Aimed at tractors in the 80 to 115hp range, fitted with 1000rpm PTO, it is a valuable, cost effective option to the many operators with a requirement for a shredder, who currently run tractors of this size.
Like its road-tow and tracked counterparts, the PTO S426 will handle a variety of materials, including greenwaste (brash, prunings, hedge trimmings, Leylandii, rootballs and Christmas trees), pallets, doors, chipboard, ply, cardboard and uPVC plastics, with a throughput of up to 3 tonnes per hour. Unlike a chipper, it will tolerate nails, screws, small metallic items (locks, hinges), stones and lumps of concrete up to fist size.
Last year Timberwolf gave a preview of it’s long awaited TW190TVGTR (Turbo Variable Gradient) tracked chipper, featuring the Wolftrack system.
With the ability to move the tracks in and out, raise the height of the machine off the ground and alter the angle at which it sits, tackling difficult ground conditions becomes easier. Moving the tracks out to their maximum width of 1.87m, affords more stability on uneven ground or slopes, whilst the ability to raise the height of the machine gives added ground clearance, which is clearly an added advantage on wet, soft or muddy ground, or where obstacles are in the way.
Greater comfort is afforded the operator, by the ability to change the angle at which the machine sits – particularly useful when negotiating slopes.
All 3 adjustments can be made separately or in combination, giving the operator the scope to set the machine up as best suits the terrain and working conditions.
The Wolftrack system features heavy-duty twin arms supporting each track, with dynamic control over track width, ground clearance and machine tilt angle, giving customers superior strength and performance over alternative systems.
