DuraTech has harnessed the grinding technology of its massive tub and horizontal grinders and implemented it in the new TC-12 Tree Chipper.
With a 129 hp (96 kw) CAT C4.4 diesel engine or a Kubota V3800 88 hp (74 kw) and PT-Tech clutch, the powerful TC-12 can grind trees and limbs up to 12 inches in diameter. The TC-12 features a spring-loaded feed wheel with adjustable down pressure, an optional height sensor that automatically adjusts the feed roller to material size, an optional hydraulic gathering winch, and innovative hopper safety bars with easy and instant feed wheel shut off. Available with a pintle or ball hitch, this heavy-duty chipper is compact enough to easily tow anywhere.
Pintle Or 2-5/16" Ball Hitch
The TC-12 can be equipped with either a Pintle or 2-5/16" Ball hitch. Either hitch includes a safety chain and breakaway brake switch for added safety.
Optional Feed Height Sensor
The optional feed height sensor is located at the top of the hopper. After sensing the height of the log, the feed wheel will automatically adjust the feed wheel to allow larger logs to enter more easily.
360 Degree Rotating Discharge Spout
The TC-12 is equipped with a flexible discharge system that features a 360 degree, hydraulic rotation and an adjustable chip spout.
PT Tech HPTO 8 Microprocessor Controlled Clutch
PT Tech HPTO 8 microprocessor controlled clutch with 4-groove belt system. The HPTO Clutch provides easy startups and provides torque overload protection for the disc, engine and driveline. For maximum control and protection the clutch comes with a clutch control interface.
Feed Roller W/ Adjustable, Dual Spring-loaded Down-pressure
The feed roller is equipped with adjustable, dual spring-loaded down-pressure, which continually applies optimum downforce on material flow. It is also equipped with hydraulics to lift feed roller if required.
Dual Control Panels
Control panels are accessible on both sides of the hopper. Each control panel contains an emergency stop button. An emergency bumper bar is also located on either side of the hopper for instant shut-off of the feed wheel.
Optional Gathering Winch
The optional gathering winch hydraulically helps pull larger logs up to the hopper. Free wheeling discharge allows for easier unrolling of winch.
With engine options of CAT C4.4 129 hp (96 kw) or Kubota V3800 88 hp (74 kw), and a PT-Tech clutch, the powerful TC-12 can grind trees and limbs up to 12 inches in diameter.
