In Pietermaritzburg area we delivered another of our 225 wood chippers This one is to a massive and reputable farmer extracting essential oils from specific crops for himself and local cerrounding farms.
This is a electric powered unit with a 30kw motor. Everybody present had a massive smile at startup of the 225 chipper commenting how smooth and quiet unit is with absolutely no vibration.
I will post again once i have performance figures from Ken and Hannes, unit is fitted with a hour meter . We are all confident that she will perform effectively, reliably and economically
The Essential oil business is really growing in South Africa with the main players being Tea Tree, Lavender, Eucalyptus, Myrtle, Rosemary etc.
These brewers use our Ritlee 225 chipper to chip the bush or tree into a size ideal for loading their “Kilns” for high tempreture extraction.
Ritlee have both their Gravity feed as well as their Hydraulic feed wood chipper in this application, and have a mix of trailer or tractor mounted units in use here.
