Five Model Road Tow Range By Timberwolf

by editor arbor age

Established in 1986, Timberwolf is the UK market leading manufacturer of a range of high quality professional wood chippers from its factory at Stowmarket in Suffolk.

Initially producing gravity feed chippers to fill the gap in the market for smaller professional tree maintenance companies looking for a high-performance machine between light domestic chippers and the much heavier and expensive hydraulic fed machines available at the time, Timberwolf gained a solid reputation and expanded rapidly.

In 1995, Timberwolf introduced its first 6ʺ hydraulic road tow model, again focusing on the need for a powerful but compact and cost-effective chipper. Demand was high from the start, propelling Timberwolf to its current position as UK market leader.

The latest road tow range of five models includes 6ʺ and 8ʺ capacity machines in petrol and diesel options. The smallest model, TW 160PH is 6ʺ capacity, powered by a Honda 22hp petrol engine with twin infeed rollers. This is a basic, ‘no frills’ chipper ideally suited to tree surgeons and landscapers for smaller jobs but having 6ʺ chipping capacity when needed. At just over 600 kg, it is easy for one operator to manoeuvre into driveways and tight spaces.

TW 230DHB Wood Chipper
The TW 230DHB is 6ʺ capacity and is powered by the reliable 35hp 4 cylinder Kubota diesel engine, or a Briggs & Stratton 37hp V twin petrol engine. This is Timberwolf’s best-selling model, setting the industry standard for 6ʺ road tows. Fast and powerful with a throughput of up to 4.5 tonnes per hour, it is the ideal machine for a wide range of tree maintenance jobs. At 750kg with compact dimensions, this chipper is easy to tow and operate. Reliable direct belt drive to the rotor eliminates the problems of clutches and manually engaged drive systems. The reversible, double-sided blades are easy to reach through the ‘Wolfport’ access hatch and do not require shimming or setting up after sharpening, making blade changing ‘in the field’ quick and simple.

Twin ‘Quadforce’ infeed rollers provide unrivalled crushing power and coupled with the class leading 6ʺ by 9ʺ ‘letterbox’ feed opening to deal with awkward shaped material, less preparation and shedding of material is required. The wide, obstruction free feed funnel is set at a comfortable height for easy feeding of material. The industry renowned Timberwolf auto feed ‘no stress’ Infeed control system automatically regulates the infeed, allowing the operator to concentrate on feeding material. Feed controls located either side of the feed funnel are of robust all steel construction, featuring separate paddles for infeed and reverse for clear and safe operation.

TW 280TDHB Wood Chipper
The largest model in the road tow range, TW 280TDHB is 8ʺ capacity with an 8ʺ x 11ʺ letterbox infeed, powered by the reliable Kubota 45hp 4 cylinder turbo diesel engine, or Kubota 57hp 4 cylinder petrol engine. The 280 shares all the features and benefits of the 230 with even greater capacity and throughput for those bigger jobs.

All Timberwolf chippers are designed for easy maintenance and long life. The modular design ensures that every part of the machines is serviceable and easy to repair with the minimum of tools and equipment. 30-year-old plus Timberwolf’s still working and giving reliable fuss free service to their owners are testament to the brand’s strength, so it is no wonder that residual values on Timberwolf chippers are higher than any other brand.
