Even hog-piles, branches and leftovers can be converted into quality biomass fuel with the right kind of chippers. All Säätötuli boilers and furnaces are able to work with the chips made with FarmiForest and Junkkari chippers. You can discover these products in our dedicated website wood-chippers.ca.

FarmiForest and Junkkari biomass chippers are recognized as the two best brands for PTO-driven chippers. Both companies are based in Finland and their chippers are able to produce quality woodchips that can be used without trouble in biomass boilers and furnaces.
Säätötuli Canada has consulted with a Finnish farmer who has been producing, selling and heating his farm with woodchips from 1973. With his hands-on experience of successful and cost-effective biomass fuel production, we hand-picked the best from these two suppliers to provide only the best solutions depending of your operation.
Both of these manufacturers build PTO-driven disc-chippers. Advantages are:
- No dedicated motor maintenance, the tractor provides the power.
- Less fuel consumption compared to drum-chippers. The disc needs less energy to turn, but it also provides the necessary airflow to throw away the woodchips without a separate device.
- A simple conception with easy and cheap maintenance.
- Less fine particles in the woodchips compared to drum chippers, both brands are chip-quality oriented in their technological choices.
- A smaller investment than a drum chipper of equivalent output.
Chipper for cost-effective biomass fuel production
For biomass fuel production from branches, treetops, hog and surface boards, one of the most cost-effective solutions will be the FarmiForest CH27 or CH260 chipper combined with the FarmiForest BC3000 feeding conveyor.
It can swallow trunks up to 10 inches, but also bundles of smaller material. The integrated no-stress system will cut the feeding of biomass if the tractor’s RPM drop, therefore saving your tractor’s motor from overload. This system’s effectiveness is based on the fact that the crane can simply drop a bundle of sticks on the conveyor and go pick the next load during the time the chipper takes care of the first one. This reduces the downtime of the chipper that no longer runs for long times waiting for material to be fed in.
Chipper for bigger jobs
If you wish to produce woodchips with bigger trees, the Junkkari HJ500C is the chipper for you. It is able to swallow trees up to 17.5 inch in diameter.
