Jensen have recently launched the new A530 with a petrol engine, due to the anticipation of the new exhaust emissions regulations. These regulations will come into force for diesel engines in this performance class in 2019. Diesel engines after this date will most likely require diesel particulate filters, meaning these diesel engines will be considerably more expensive and have larger installation dimensions, which will have a major impact on the design of chippers. By using petrol engines in the Jensen A530 to correspond to exhaust gas emissions, these problems will completely disappear.
The Jensen A530 petrol chipper will be powered by a 35hp Briggs & Stratton Vanguard engine, producing a capacity of 15m3/hr, therefore very similar to the diesel A530. The weight is roughly 700kg and thereby suitable for drivers with a weight restricted class B driving licence.
As with the whole range of Jensen chippers the A530 can be modified to suit your exact working environment. Each towable chipper can be customised with the following:
- Bio Oil
- Custom Paint Colour
- Height Adjustable Drawbar
- Electronically Controlled Infeed System
- Mechanical Folding Chute
- Towing Eye
- Ball Hitch
- Light Guards
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.
TOUCH BUTTON FEED CONTROL
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.
INTERMESHING FEED ROLLER SYSTEM
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.
AUTO OVERLOAD REGULATOR
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.
OPEN FLYWHEEL SYSTEM
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.
