Hansa is proud to announce the launch of the C60RX in Australia.
As an arborist it’s not always easy-access gardens and simple tree removals. There’s often times when your job takes you to difficult sites with narrow access or soft ground conditions. While many may struggle with this terrain, there is a chipper that’s up for the challenge.
Introducing Hansa’s C60RX – the toughest tracked brush chipper in the industry. And although it has all the bells and whistles of a heavier machine, the fully kitted machine surprisingly weighs in at under 2070kg.
With safety being the most important factor when on site, the rubber tracked undercarriage on the C60RX is operated by full remote control, allowing the operator to navigate the chipper away from the danger zone and control the 65hp machine into the most difficult areas from a safe distance.
To chip, you simply control the feed-rate with the control bar and the rest is automatic – easy. The powerful hydraulic feed system makes it easy to process any material.
Its wide feed opening (18”) means bushy, twisted branches with forks are pulled into the machine without effort. With the 360°
To Winch Or Not To Winch?
With tough jobs comes big trees hence why Hansa offers an optional hydraulic winch with this model. It adds an additional 130kg weight, but take the back-breaking work out of dragging branches by hand, meaning less fatigue and more efficient operation even with a smaller team. Hansa’s optional winch has the pulling power of 1800kg, freespool and 40m of dyneema polymer rope as standard. The winch controls include machine operated or wireless function and its stabilisation legs provide additional support. Reduce fatigue also means less strain, leading to a safer work place for all staff members.
The C60 Family
Arborists tackling jobs in suburban areas will often opt for the C60RXs’ sister the C60. Widely considered to be the best in its class, this chipper boasts the same powerful, lightweight, manoeuvrable hydraulic feed and extraordinary capacity to weight ratio as the C60RX but as a wheeled unit. Its wide feed opening is another favourite among users – often described as a ‘small in size but big in capacity’ chipper.
One of Australasia’s biggest arboricultural service providers, Treescape Australasia uses Hansa’s C60RX to keep its business running smoothly and efficiently.
Business Manager Lian Polack commented, “We chose the C60RX chipper for the flexibility on our work sites. Being able to track into difficult access sites but also being able to chip whilst still on the trailer into our tip truck makes it very versatile. One of the main differences between the C60RX and other tracked chippers is the ability to use the chipper on or off the bespoke trailer.
“Our crew’s feedback was that the chipper was easy to use. They enjoyed the versatility of being able to reduce winching/dragging time on site and the feed tray was a good height/width. Most importantly, they felt that the C60 was a lot gruntier than they expected.”
With a custom in-house designed trailer on offer for the C60RX, it not only keeps the chipper at a comfortable working height, it makes it versatile for efficient use in either configuration, hitched on trailer or on tracks. Hansa like to keep their clients branding look on point – hence why they offer customisations of colour and logos to their chippers so clients can make it their own.
It can also be the small things that count – with convenience options available like cone and rake holders, a toolbox and spare wheel holders.
Chris Corfe, owner of Marc Doyle Treework, owns a C60 Hansa chipper to help his team of qualified arborists carry out jobs safely. He shares: “I’ve used Hansa for the past ten years and in my opinion, are the best built chippers on the market.
“The quality of the machines are built to last, and the Hansa team are always evolving the chippers to make jobs easier for arborists.
Chris continues, “The Hansa chippers surprise me every time, they always over deliver – never struggling to chip the bigger branches and foliage. Having the winch has made life easier for me and my staff members.”
All Hansa’s machines are designed in-house, developed over time from first-hand experience in the field. Hansa offer a superior product to remain competitive and stand apart from imported models in product quality, efficiency and solid build.
