It was a while ago now, before the pandemic in December 2019, that Bruks invited to a demo day to show their mobile chippers. Torbjörn at Skogsforum.se was there, and as the winter was cold here, at least for a couple of weeks, he eventually decided to edit the film.
Mobile chippers in two sizes
The demo was held at a terminal in mid-Sweden that had both round wood and brush for chipping. In the film you will see the Bruks 806.2 and 1006 in different versions. The smaller chipper, 806.2, is shown mounted on a JD 1910 forwarder where the chipper has its own 500 hp Scania engine. Also two truck mounted 806.2’s were shown. On those two, the truck engine powers the chipper.
The larger 1006 chipper was shown as both forwarder and truck mounted. In both cases with own 768 hp Volvo engines. When chipping round wood with this one, the chip pile grown quite fast.
