The H500 pro-chipper has been specially designed by Jo Beau® for tractors and other tool carriers with a hydraulic power min. converted power of 24 Hp (L x BAR / 450 = Hp)*. The Jo Beau® drum technology™ guarantees that branches with a diameter of 14cm -depending on the wood type- can be perfectly converted into high quality wood chips.

The wide infeed opening from 77x 43cm has been designed for an even bigger volume of side branches. The H500 has the same technical specifications as the premium model M500 pro-chipper, but with an hydraulic drive! The welded steel structure of the H500 has the quality and durability Jo Beau is always striving for in its designs.

The different options such as detachable piece discharge pipe, rotating pipe, high rotating discharge pipe & lifting kit make the H500 even better for farmers, gardeners and arborists. By means of the lifting kit the chipper can be lifted and coupled onto a trailer (with other words: not onto the chipper construction).
