For ease of use and rugged reliability, it’s hard to beat a Bearcat’s commercial grade, heavy-duty machines. The Bearcat Chipper comes with a reputation for being a high quality, well manufactured high performance outdoor power machine. Bearcat offers a wide range of PTO chippers. Sizes include 4, 4.5, 5, 6, 8, 9, and 12 inches. I will look at three sizes, 4, 6, and 12 inches to give a good feel of just what Beatcat offers in the chipping department.
The CH6614 Bearcat chipper is capable of devouring branches up to 4 inches in diameter through a wide hopper and chipper opening. The Bearcat’s 4 inch towable chipper comes with a standard 6 inch round discharge chute and adjustable deflector, rotating a full 360 degrees for exceptional accuracy when directing chips into a truck, trailer or wagon. Highway towable – with a 2 inch ball coupler, 44 inch wheel base and torsion suspension axle – the Bearcat chipper is simple to operate, with a big 27 x 28 inch feed hopper and 5.5 x 7 inch chipper opening that defies small side limbs. An adjustable 4-sided anvil maintains efficient chipping action for many hours of use.
There are many different 6 inch Bearcat chipper models. We are taking a look at Model CH69993H. This model is loaded with new standard features to make your job easier. This Bearcat Chipper can handle branches up to 6 inches in diameter, with the ability to chip the toughest brush with ease. Features include a 6.7 inch rectangular discharge chute, and a live hydraulic feed system with a variable speed feed roller with instant reverse. Our newly developed “try again” feed system automatically retries feeding limbs. The feed sensor is factory installed and standard equipment on these 6 inch chippers. The feed roller is 15 inches in diameter, containing 10 knife blades for enhanced powerful feeding. The discharge chute extends to the end of the hitch for efficient loading and quickly rotates 360 degrees with ease. The 6 inch chipper is available with a choice of gas or diesel engines. All models have a 6.5 x 13.5 inch feed opening with a wide open feed chute measuring 36 x 35 inches.
Bearcat’s 12 inch chipper makes quick work of even the hardest wood and brush piles. Designed with the user in mind, the 12 inch Bearcat chipper works all day without wearing out your crew. Standard features, such as, the 360 degree rotating discharge chute and adjustable deflector let you choose where the chips go. A factory standard flow control valve allows you to adjust chipping speed from 0-135 board feet per minute. Tough and nimble are two characteristics of Bearcat’s 12 inch chipper.
As you can see you have many options. When deciding on the right machine, look for the one that suits your working conditions best. If you run a large scale operation, the 12 inch model would be best. However, if you are using the Bearcat Chipper around your home, the smaller 4 inch model would be easy to maneuver and store. No matter which you pick, you are getting a durable product that will go for hours on end!
