Altec Environmental Products now offers the exclusive Kubota 48-hp. diesel engine on three of its chippers. The Kubota engine is 40 percent more fuel-efficient than the traditional 85-hp. unit normally offered on chippers. The Altec line-up features chippers for 6-, 9- and 12-inch material and includes a self-feed drum, a control-feed disc and a control-feed drum unit.
The DC912A, a 9-inch-capacity control-feed disc chipper, boasts a compact, high-performance design, patented panic bar system and high-capacity (150 fpm) hydraulic feed system. Altec’s CFD 1217, a 12-inch-capacity control-feed drum, offers the FeedSense electronic feed control system and a height-adjustable discharge chute with hand-crank 360 degree rotation. The third chipper in Altec’s fuel-efficient line-up is the WC 126A, a 6-inch-capacity self-feed drum, which features an innovative serrated blade design, no hydraulics and an aggressive 200 fpm feed rate.
