Kubota Power - 24HP

Kubota Power - 24HP

The V1505 Kubota engine, known to be the bullet proof workhorse favourite in the industry. This engine now produces 24 horse power to bring it under the emission threshold meaning we don’t need DPF filters or any after treatment to make it comply with the 2019 emissions regulations. By changing the gearing, we have got this machine chipping better than a 35hp, it uses 30% less diesel too!

Wide Hopper

Wide Hopper

New and improved wide hopper right down to the mouth to make feeding this machine a dream and giving you the ability to get awkward limbs and forks into the incredibly strong rollers.

Don’t be put off by the horse power number, this machine chips as well as it’s 35hp predecessor and processes timber better due to it’s wide hopper. With some clever engineering and changing the gearing we’ve managed to pull the same performance from a much lower horse power engine which means we don’t need the expense or complication of a DPF engine. Try it to believe it – it’s impressive!
