Split-Fire first introduced its line up of heavy duty wood chippers into the Equipment Rental Industry over 20 years ago - gas powered, and 3-point hitch model chipper products designed for CONTINUOUS HEAVY-DUTY USE. Built to be safe and simple to operate, low maintenance with a minimal parts count, and with no annual over-haul required; Split-Fire chippers proved a substantially low cost of ownership year-after-year, proved to be durable, and to hold a high-resale value for the best possible return on investment (ROI). As a result, Split-Fire earned a great reputation in the Equipment Rental Industry, and with satisfied rental shop customers who returned time and time again to rent the machines by name. Now in 2020, Split-Fire set out to improve upon our past wood chipper designs with the knowledge gained from decades of rental shop customer use, and from the owners of our chippers as well. The new SPLIT-FIRE® 4090 Horizontal Wood Chipper is indeed a "Horizontal" flywheel or horizontal bed blade configured machine - a gas powered wood chipper and brush chipper designed to exceed the demands of equipment rental shops, and that's available for sale direct to home owners factory direct - and as with all Split-Fire manufactured products, the new SPLIT-FIRE® 4090 Horizontal Wood Chipper is Made in Canada! It is a SELF-FEEDING chipper capable of handling untrimmed branches, bark, leaves, and stringy wood to produce consistent ½ inch to ¾ inch wood chips or mulch. As with all SPLIT-FIRE® brand products, the 4090 wood chipper is LOW MAINTENANCE; only requiring occasional engine and belt service, and blade sharpening or replacement.
