HYPRO 450 XL Tractor Processor
The HYPRO 450 XL is a versatile, powerful and easily manoeuvred tractor processor. It is a highly-valued and popular all-round machine that functions equally impressively for small final thinnings as for first thinnings. HYPRO 450 XL has high and low speed, enabling a very high feed rate – 5m/sec in high speed mode – providing major benefits when operating in forests with smaller trees. The low speed mode has a feed rate of 3.5 m/sec and a very high starting torque combined with raw power for use when operating in forests with larger trees.
HYPRO 450 XL Tractor Processor
The machine has a maximum opening diameter of 45 cm and a total delimbing diameter from 40 cm down to 5 cm. It also has an outstanding, fully hydraulic and very powerful high-speed capacity that cuts without splitting. The processor is equipped with a separate hydraulic system with its own pump and tank where the pump is connected directly to the tractor’s power take-off (or powered via a PTO-shaft if the pump is mounted on the processor’s frame as an alternative design).
HYPRO 450 XL has a double articulated joint as standard, which enables the machine’s working position to be moved sideways – with cut timber thus always falling a long way outside the tractor’s wheel tracks. The double articulated joint also provides excellent possibilities to sort timber into different piles as early as the processing stage, and means that the piles of timber do not have to be moved after processing. This also ensures considerably simpler and more effective timber haulage as sorting has already been performed in connection with processing in the tractor processor. The machine’s absolutely superb and powerful (2,000 kilo traction) hydraulic winch is manoeuvred as standard with digital radio equipment, but can also be operated proportionally (variable speed) using the hand lever on the actuator valve for simpler handling of the trunk close to the machine. When the winch command is interrupted, the winching stops without delay, furthermore the winch is always in braked position when stopped.
HYPRO 450 XL can be equipped with a feed crane and this is available in two length alternatives – four or six metres reach. HYPRO feed crane is tailor-made to facilitate and streamline the work in the machine’s immediate surroundings. The crane functions independently of the unit’s position and the machine operator is thereby at the control table when the crane is in operation. Distribution of brushwood in the extraction route is simplified thanks to the crane’s slewing arc of 120° and its long coverage. The crane thus greatly improves the working environment and means that the everyday work in the forest is performed in an environmentally considerate manner.
HYPRO 450 XL tractor processor is always equipped with the measuring computer MD430-D, which has length and diameter measurement as standard. It has an LCD colour monitor with large white numbers that are easy to read even in strong sunlight and a wide viewing angle. Photocells start and reset the measurement cycle, while a separate measuring wheel with a pulse transmitter sends signals to the measuring computer. MD430-D saves log data for potential print out via USB, and also displays length suggestions during operation depending on the diameter of the trunk and the assortment list, which can be set by the operator. Computer program and cables to connect the measuring computer and print out log data to a PC are included. If required, selection of tree species takes place by means of a simple press on the respective button for fir, pine, hardwood or misc. 1 and 2. Log data is registered automatically with each cut and is saved in the measurement list in the measuring computer. The unit also has inbuilt cable troubleshooting, calibration of length and diameter measurement, as well as a set interval for servicing the machine.
Automatic cross-cutting system is available as an optional extra with HYPRO 450 XL. Lever for feeding and crosscut saw is then replaced by an EHC joystick where feeding is controlled by the joystick’s forward/backward movement and the crosscut saw is controlled via push button. With the automatic cross-cutting system activated, the operator holds the lever in drawn position so that the machine itself feeds forward, searches for the set cut window in length and stops – either via the pre-set length pre-sets or the measuring computer selects length itself according to the diameter of the trunk via the adjustable cross-cutting list.
HYPRO 450 XL is a unique all-round machine with a very wide range of applications for both contractors and independent forest owners. All in all, high second hand value, high capacity, low maintenance costs and lower engine speed through the internal hydraulic system’s gearbox (which entails reduced diesel consumption) delivers fantastic overall economy and a highly competitive tractor processor.
