Quality of Wooden Chips Produced by Claas Jaguar Equipped with Experimental CRA-ING Rotor

L. Pari, V. Civitarese & A. Del Giudice
The Agriculture Engineering Research Unit of the Agricultural Research Council (Rome) has designed a new innovative chipper device to equip with Class Jaguar chipper harvesters for short rotation forestry harvesting. The new rotor differs from standard rotors as it has a lower number of blades and blade­holders, from 24 to only 10 and it has a different cutting angle and drum insertion. This study evaluates the particle­size distribution of chip produced by standard rotors compared...
