The Biber Power Truck VICAN has an especially for chipping developed intermediate gear, which is deliverable only by Eschlböck and is installed just between the truck engine and the automatic gear box. This is the basis for more power, efficiency and comfort during chipping operation:full power output without power losses through intermediate drives a powershiftable coupling and the fact that there is no need for disengaging the chipping rotor when displacing the vehicle.
The VICAN chassis is a Volvo FH 16 with 750 PS driving power and 3.550 Nm torque. The Tridem chassis ensures the full utilization of the 32 tons and the Power Truck can thus be registered without special permission. An 8x4 drive brings the full engine power to the first two rear axles from first gear on. All functions for the chipping operation can be controlled from the operator station - chipper and crane by Best Control from Eschlböck and the two crane-joysticks.
In the VICAN the well-proven Eschlböck cooler concept is installed: Easy cleaning and consistent cooling is hereby guaranteed. The crane was specially developed by Eschlböck together with Palfinger Epsilon and is assembled from proven components. The S110F 104 has a range of 10,4m which is further enhanced by the off-center body position. Thanks to this overall concept, the VICAN is a real power truck when chipping wood with 750 HP.
