Sawquip Log Chipping Canter

The chipping canter is the versatile work horse of primary log processing. It can process logs to two faces eliminating side slabs while being fed with a standard auto-centering sharp chain infeed, a vertical roll log infeed such as the HE, and the high performance CCO infeed. It can be combined with close coupled circular saws (single or double arbor, guided or non-guided), twin band saws and a bottom chipping head module. It is capable of very high production rates while producing quality two side faces on a log.

  • Two Sawquip 4, 6 or 8 knife chipping head assemblies each with heavy duty shafting and bearings mounted on a carriage assembly.
  • Two carriages (right and left) mounted on chromed slideways with frictionless bearings each supporting a chipping head assembly and drive
  • Carriages (and heads) are positioned laterally by hydraulic servo-cylinders
  • Central steel fabricated support and chromed anvil
  • Each chipping head is driven by a 150 hp/1800 rpm drive assembly
