The Vortex 6″ Drum Woodchipper is a unit designed and created to suit Australian conditions. Steve Westoby of Chipstar explains it as follows.
Vortex 6″ system
People say they would love to have a chipper which feeds like a drum and throws like a disc. The Vortex drum machine is the answer.
Once the wood is chipped it is sucked to the side of the drum housing by the patented vortex system and then thrown out by a large disc with paddles, attached to the side of the drum, up and out of the outfeed chute.
The tip speed of the disc paddles determines how far the chips are propelled. The faster the disc rotates the greater the propulsion. The vortex system with a disc diameter not limited by the drum diameter, as with conventional drum chippers, fulfils the wish to throw like a disc machine.
Add to the above a large infeed neck, (6″X16″), two aggressive feed rollers and eight blades, you then have a chipper which increases your productivity with less effort. It also produces very fine chips.
To further illustrate the effectiveness of this brilliant machine, please take the time to watch this short video.
