The RAYCO RC 16.5 drum-style brush chipper is engineered to give contractors and municipalities a 17-inch (43-cm) capacity machine loaded with smart features designed to maximize productivity and keep maintenance at a minimum. With a fuel capacity of 50 gallons (189 L), the unit’s 140-hp (104 kW) Cat diesel will run all day without stopping to refuel. The RC 16.5 also features Fuel Saver Technology which automatically decelerates the engine if the feed control bar remains in neutral for 60 seconds. To eliminate clutch maintenance, units feature a hydraulic clutch that engages at the push of a button and never needs adjusting. A Torflex idler makes belt adjustments simpler and does not require movement of the engine, and the top feed wheel is powered by a large planetary drive motor that provides plenty of torque while eliminating the need for couplers.
