The Jensen A540 wheeled chipper can chip up to 8″ in diameter, and is powered by a highly reliable Kubota engine. With it’s high level of user friendliness, ease of maintenance and high performance, the Jensen A540 wood chipper is a favourite amongst our customers.
With its new design our top seller, the Jensen A540 shines amongst the small model series. Completely modified it is more versatile and user friendly. With this machine you can chip up to 190mm timber thanks to the strength and power of the Jensen feed roller system. The key features of the A540 wood chipper are the wide hopper, huge flywheel, strong feed roller grip and big bearings. The A540 also comes with an integral toolbox mounted in the service centre for convenient tool storage.
If you work mainly on the highway the perfect solution is the A540 turntable. This machine shares all the features and qualities of the A540 but sits on a 270º turntable chassis.
With the engine mounted to the side of the chipping chamber rather than the front to back making the machine ideal for city work. With the hopper at the rear of the machine in the transport position, no adjustments are to be made if you don’t need to work from the side. All panels and guards fold out simply and easily for routine maintenance and blade changes.
As with the whole range of Jensen chippers the A540 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.
