BRUKS announces a successful introduction of a market development program of its Mobile Chippers for North America. Recently at the Oregon Logging Conference, BRUKS kicked off its effort with live demonstrations at the show.

The Forwarder mounted 450 HP drum chipper was mounted on a Valmet 890.3 forwarder provided by Modern Machinery.  Modern Machinery is the BRUKS’ dealer for the Pacific Northwest and has begun marketing the chipper to their customers in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana and Northern California. Power Motive is the dealer for Colorado and BRUKS is working on setting up other dealers across the U.S. and Canada.

The chipper with its own bin mounted on a forwarder can travel off road to many spots that traditional equipment can’t go.  After chipping slash or logs up to 20” diameter, the unit can bring the chips back to roadside and dump into a chip trailer or container.

“It is much more efficient to transport chips out verses loose slash and this method keeps much of the contaminants such as rocks and dirt out of the chips.  The biomass energy plants will demand a quality chip will very little contaminants and the BRUKS 805 mobile chipper can deliver thatsays Blase Grady, VP of BRUKS.

The demand for fuel chips is growing and will boom over the next few years and BRUKS has the equipment and process for a cost effective way of harvesting logging residue.
