CBI to demo a ChipMax 484VR at Interforst

CBI 484VR Wood Chipper Demo

MUNICH, GERMANY – Continental Biomass Industries (CBI) will be exhibiting at Interforst 2018 in Munich from July 18th – July 22nd. Live demonstrations of the truck-mounted ChipMax 484VR will be taking place at booth 1110/25 in the outdoor exhibition area.

“CBI purpose-builds commercial wood chippers for clients who produce microchips for manufacturing wood pellets, wood chips for boiler fuel, and wood chips for the pulp and paper industry,” said Laurens Veer, Sales Manager for CBI Europe. “From concept to completion, the ChipMax 484VR’s rugged and mobile design is ideal for forestry applications in Europe and Scandinavia. CBI machines provide high production volumes, at a low cost per ton, while producing a consistent and valuable end-product. Interforst 2018 is a great opportunity to meet with industry leaders and discuss equipment solutions that meet their organization’s goals.”


Available as tracked, portable, and truck-mounted, the ChipMax has a high-production capability of up to 120 tons per hour, with low cost per ton and extreme reliability. Compact yet enormously productive, the CBI ChipMax 484 whole tree chipper hit the market with an eye on productivity and customer flexibility. The rotor, chipper box, and feed system are the strongest in its class as this drum chipper provides owners with years of trouble free service.

Featuring two rotor options, the ChipMax makes high-quality fuel chips custom sized from 12–25 mm or “micro-chips” from 4–12 mm from logs up to 24” in diameter. These wood microchips produce a consistent fiber length that dramatically reduces the overall cost of producing pellets and improves the function of small boilers. The ChipMax 484VR at the show will be equipped with a CAT C-18; 755 HP Tier 2 Engine.

CBI manufactures and distributes a complete line of portable and stationary grinders, shredders, industrial wood chippers, flail debarkers, and attachments for composting, forestry, biomass recovery, and wood-waste processing.
