HEIZOHACK is one of the leading European brands in the forestry and biomass machinery market. Based in Bavaria, Germany, it has been producing chippers since 1989.

Typically, the hand-fed range caters for people producing their own biomass chip or country estates looking to maintain their land and use the chip as a source of heating.

The crane-fed range of Heizohack chippers are powerful professional machines used by contract companies or cooperatives that use the large capacity for site clearance work and sell the chip as a by-product.

The popular models from the hand-fed range are the HM4-300, HM6-300, which are 12” machines, and the large 16” diameter capacity HM8-400, which all produce G30 or G50 grade chip, depending on the sieve fitted.

The K Series (crane-fed) range is made up of the entry level HM8-400K 16” chipper and the HM10-500K 20” machine, which can be built with the impressive 10 m Palfinger M70F101 crane for self-feeding like the range topper 25” HM14-860KTL. These models out of the Heizohack range are stocked by Fuelwood.

Also in the range are the Mercedes-Benz Arcos 6x6 based truck chippers. The HM10-860KL is the new model in the range to offer greater off-road ability due to the lighter weight and ground clearance compared to its bigger brother, the HM14-860KL. The HM10-860KL still has a 25” diameter capacity and it’s powered by the 420 hp truck engine. In both models the truck can be moved without stopping the chipper thanks to the NMV gearbox used.

WITH over 35 years of industry experience, Timberwolf is renowned for offering customers a range of diesel- and petrol-powered woodchippers.

Road Tow

The TW 230HB is its best-selling sub-750 kg woodchipper and is the arborist’s machine of choice. With the option of either diesel or petrol, the chipper offers arborists an exceptional workrate, strength and reliability.

PTH 900


Forestry Journal:

ARE you tired of having to wait for a skilled company to produce woodchips from logs and branches? Are you looking for a new source of income to diversify your business?

Would you like to invest in the agricultural/forestry and renewable energy sector using incentives and funding? Pezzolato has the solution you are looking for.

When the volume of wood to be chipped becomes larger and larger, you need to equip yourself with robust, reliable and powerful machines able to process large quantities of biomass in a short time, producing high-quality woodchips that can be used for large power plants or small boilers (where a homogenous grain size is required).

Pezzolato, the leading Italian company in the production of professional chippers, offers to woodchip producers, contractors and arborists one of its ‘best-seller’ machines in the medium-high power range, available in three versions: PTH 700, PTH 900 and PTH 1200.

These machines can be driven by the PTO of the tractor from 100 to 300 hp or by a dedicated motor.

As with all other Pezzolato chippers, these machines have a cone-shaped in-feed design, a feature that, combined with the top roller that can fully open, allows even very bulky logs and twigs to be processed efficiently, increasing productivity.

The closed in-feed chain carries the material to be chipped up to the counter-knife, a design feature that eliminates the problem of ‘wasted material’ accumulating under the machine after each move, thus avoiding the need to slow down for site cleaning.

The large-diameter fan, mounted directly on the main shaft, allows good expulsion of woodchips even at low engine speeds and with wet material (such as that produced by green maintenance operations), as well as eliminating dust.

Another plus of these machines is the drop counter-knife: a system that minimises any damage caused by the accidental insertion of foreign bodies (not biomass) inside the chipper.

ECO 135


Forestry Journal:

THE ARB Show 2023 gave GreenMech the perfect platform to launch its brand new, ‘entry-level’ woodchipper range, the ECO 135. Delivering an impressive 5” capacity, the ECO 135 is ideal for a wide variety of applications and operators, including those more price-conscious in the arborist, landscaper and rental markets.

Initially available in two basic models, the ECO 135 road tow and the ECO 135TT as a full 360o turntable road tow, the new range has been designed to be cost-effective to build and easier to run and maintain, without any compromise in strength and performance.

The range retains many of GreenMech’s industry-proven innovations, such as horizontal rollers, no-stress feed system and twin disc-blade chipping technology, combined with a new flywheel design, which provides impressive throughput for a machine of its size.

Power is delivered by a powerful, yet economical, 24 hp Loncin petrol engine and both models can be up-specced to suit applications and budgets. Options include a variable height discharge chute, spare wheel, stowage box and the GreenMech HushChip pack, which provides additional component protection and reduces noise output. LED lighting can also be specified to replace the filament kit fitted as standard.

Series production will start in June, with all models benefiting from a three-year, no-quibble GreenMech warranty and the backup service and support from their nationwide dealer network.
