Cooper Machine Chipper
Cooper Machine is a sales representative for Precision Husky Waste Systems. We are able to provide any Precision Husky equipment to complement the Cooper Machine equipment you purchase including screens, chippers and vibrating conveyors. The canted side spout design and the position of the knife causes a smooth slicing action. The attack angle of the knife gives a gentle lift to the slab as the knife passes the center line and begins the upward swing turning the slab counterclockwise. The spout has a flat bottom and canted side to give 25 % more anvil contact, preventing slapping and wood turning in the wrong direction. Horizontal and vertical anvils give additional life, requiring less maintenance. Both anvils are hard surfaced with Colmonoy with a hardness of 62 - 65, Rockwell C scale. With a four sided replaceable anvil, maintenance and time are saved. Less horsepower is needed with Precision's smoother action. Options for 38" [96cm], 48" [122cm], 58" [147cm] and 66" [168cm]

The edger is available with an optional infeed rollcase with a set of jump chains to assist the operator in positioning the larger material onto the edger. The material can either be manually pushed onto the edger or this can be automated. On both options, multiple hold-downs pin the material to the rollers for better accuracy.
