The Jensen A540 Tracked Chipper can be fitted with fixed or variable track systems, the A540 is also available with a tilt bed option perfect for light embankment work. In addition to the rigid design of the tracked wood chipper, we also offer a track system which is hydraulically adjustable.

Time is money! It is important to be able to rely on your working equipment. Jensen Chippers will keep you on the front line, and allow you to achieve high performance coupled with proven reliability. Investing in a high quality machine pays off quickly.

With our stable and powerful Jensen tracked chippers you can work in places that are difficult to access. Whether it’s railways, highway embankments or difficult and steep terrain, you will navigate through with ease. Our tracked chippers can reach a speed of approximately 3km/h and overcome slopes of up to 30°.

For the full range of tracked wood chippers we offer an additional rail track security package which allows the machine to be left on site in remote areas. It includes lockable diesel and hydraulic oil filler caps, a lockable cover on the control panel and bonnet, and an extra tool box securing chains and locks etc. It also includes an earth switch and securing eyes to allow the machine to be secured to an immovable object.


According to your needs, you can choose between a fixed or a compact, fold down feed hopper.

Both come equipped with a safety bar. Depending on the infeed control, it is used as a control bar or as an emergency stop bar.


Jensen offer two options for the feed control. The manual hydraulic system to remove electrics completely or an illuminated touch pad rated feed controls to remove any possibility of water and vibration issues related to electronics.

This option offers maximum safety and is very user friendly.


Designed to grip and take away the most awkward material. Twin horizontal feed rollers are timed through a precision gearbox which allows the rollers to lock together for maximum grip on small brashy material as well as large timber.

The conventional chipper has a motor powering each feed roller, the Jensen has one motor which means the power to each roller is consistently strong whatever the material.


All Jensen machines can be delivered with an auto overload regulator. This electric device monitors the speed of the flywheel preventing the timer from feeding on to the flywheel when the flywheel rotations fall below a preset level. This allows the engine and flywheel to build up speed again before the rollers are re engaged to continue the chipping process.


The flywheel is the heart of every wood chipper. Two blades which cut the full width of the timber mounted on a large flywheel with open tops, means there is nothing to hinder the chip leaving the flywheel.

Four full width draught fins pick up the material and throw it out of the chamber rather than relying on air to blow the chip. This means clearing green, wet material is simply not a problem, and blockages are virtually unheard of.
