Chip material faster with Morbark’s Typhoon 20 brush chipper, which offers a choice of 250 or 325 horsepower. The Typhoon 20 has a 20-inch capacity, 28 1/2-inch-wide drum and feed wheels, a 4-by-8-inch center beam and a 66 1/2-by- 40 1/2-inch infeed chute. The chipper features a redesigned pivot that eliminates the yoke swing and increases down pressure efficiency. The Typhoon 20 comes with a 2 1/2-inch lunet ring, 20,000-pound tandem axle suspension and 3/8-inch chains.

Run chipper longer with large fuel capacity
Run longer without refueling with Rayco’s RC 16.5 drum-style brush chipper with a 50-gallon fuel capacity. The RC 16.5’s Fuel Saver technology automatically decelerates the engine if the feed control bar remains in neutral for 60 seconds. A push-button hydraulic clutch eliminates clutch maintenance and adjustments. The RC 16.5 also has offset feed wheels to avoid material kick up when feeding short lengths of large diameter material.
