The Powertruck chassis unites two extremes: It is excellent for driving in the forest and unbeatable on highways and motorways at a speed of 80 km/h.
The concept falls back on proven components from the truck-serial technology and develops them to a new “Eschlböck chassis” for more agility and more power. This specially developed chassis is made in manual labour and designed especially for the requirements in the chipping application. The first chassis was developed in cooperation with a well-known truck manufacturer, whose worldwide service net is available for every driver of a Biber Powertruck. Quality and performance – this is just the Biber Powertruck!
During the last years the requirements for wood chippers have changed: The operation time per year and machine has increased continuously, the operating radius rose, the wood storage yards were more difficult to achieve and the demand for comfort increased continuously. These are just some reasons, why Eschlböck, as a technology leader, took the development of a chassis specially designed for this application in their own hands.
Eschlböck wanted to develop a chassis with proven components from the commercial vehicle industry. In addition, Mercedes-Benz was taken on board as part partner. Together, a new chassis was designed. Only proven components are installed and the chassis is produced in manual labour. For our customers the close cooperation with a known premium manufacturer means that they can fall back on a worldwide service net. We have also confronted our crane supplier Palfinger Epsilon with the requirements of an especially on the Biber Power Truck optimized crane. This just new crane has a reach of 10.4 metres, makes high hydraulic performances possible and increases the operating speed enormously.
A cutting width of 122 cm and a rotor – diameter more than 1 m with more than 2 m² screen size processes up to 75 cm stem wood to perfect wood chips. The innovative Eschlböck rotor is besides the longer endurance easy to maintain. All parts are manufactured to be easily replaced after wearout or can be separately renewed after damage through a foreign object. The rotor can be equipped with rugged knives or with quickly replaceable blades including the proven foreign object protection. Depending on screen size and the used knives/blades several different wood chip sizes are able to be produced. Through the great driving power of the Powertrucks the rotor Biber 92 is able to deliver it´s real strength. Based on their premium equipment the Biber Powertrucks are unbeatable regarding many operating hours and throughput, driving in difficult terrains and fast driven distance.
„A Biber Powertruck stands for maximal power with the heart of Eschlböck.“
In the forest, the Tridem chassis with all-wheel drive is absolutely superior.
The convenient journey on highways and motorways guarantees a high operating radius.
Thanks to the short wheelbase, the Biber Powertruck can also be used when room is constricted.
Eschlböck’s SPS-control leads and supports the continuous and therefore most economic loading of the chipper.
The Biber Powertruck also benefits from the proven and patented Eschlböck cooling system: It defies dust and heat.
The converted truck cabin for especially good allround view and cameras resistant to vibration put the operator in the picture.
In the especially for and with Eschlböck developed chassis, proven standard components are combined intelligently.
The Biber Powertruck is optimally supported at Eschlböck and also in the worldwide service net of famous truck manufacturers.
Excess width and weight are foreign words for the Powertruck. Therefore, everything runs smoothly at the licensing as well in the traffic.
