Terex Environmental TBC 430 biomass chipper
Terex Environmental Equipment’s new whole tree biomass chipper TBC 430, one of three machines in the company’s 400 Series, uses a massive 50-inch diameter drum in all three models. Terex says these are the largest drums in the industry, and will help improve efficiency and reduce fuel consumption. The 400 Series drum has a 1-inch drum skin, full pocket cutting surface, and bolt-in replaceable wear parts, giving the Terex 430 a mechanical advantage in its cutting attack angle, as well as excellent wear, longevity and kinetic energy.
A large in-feed system and opening enables efficient feed to slash, limbs, short wood and whole trees, and all Terex chippers use a full knife pocket across the face of the drum to produce superior high quality chip and faster load times.
The TBC 430 can produce up to 80 tons per hour of quality biomass and is able to accept short end-cuts, up to 24-inch in diameter. It cuts with a 50-inch diameter by 30-inch wide drum, turning at 700 rpm’s for smooth cutting and high torque.
Standard equipment includes dual stabilizer legs, skidder grab plate, air brake, wireless remote control, Eaton ME drive motor and a Terex Eaton FX computer control system. The TBC 430 is available in a wheel-mounted or track-drive configuration, and can be equipped with optional screen and blower systems.
