Engagement of the feedroll is done by pushing or pulling the handle that wraps around the outside of the feed box. The feedroll has three positions: neutral, reverse, feed (forward).


The feedroll grabs the material as it is fed into the chipper and allows the operator to step away while it automatically pulls material into the knives.

The hydraulic feedroll is mounted on a spring-loaded frame on the WC12 Series Wood Chippers, allowing it to raise up and down depending on the size of the timber going through. 


The speed of the feedroll can be adjusted on the side of the wood chipper with the hydraulic flow valve.
