Prof 5 B On Road
The concept of a self-propelling shredder, which allows you to get to the back of the garden and process the cutting waste on site, offers an ideal solution for many garden contractors. However, for another large group of gardeners this added flexibility does not imply added value because they have a different work area. Especially for this group, Eliet recently developed a Prof 5 on a chassis for fast transportation purposes.
For the first time Eliet offers the possibility of installing a blow chute for the removal of chips. What is interesting about this blow chute is that Eliet integrated a genuine blower turbine into the design so that the machine has a powerful discharge system. In contrast to many other shredders on the market that have chip-discharge blowers, the Prof 5B On Road can also handle damp natural trimmings very well and with hardly any danger of blockage of the turbine. By integrating a genuine blower turbine, the Prof 5B On Road benefits from a suction effect through the feed hopper. This ensures that the feeding of leafy natural trimmings goes much more smoothly because the material is, as it were, sucked into the shredding chamber.
The Prof 5B On Road is also available with the option of a hydraulic feed roller. This significantly increases the output of the machine. You only have to feed the wood in, and then the machine conveys it inside by itself. The force with which this feed roller does its work leaves even the most twiggy branches no chance at all. Large volumes of leafy trimmings are also mercilessly fed to the blades. One can manually adjust the rotation of the feed roller (reverse – feed – stop). This operating governor is next to the feed-in opening and is thus always within reach as an emergency stop.
The ELIET Prof 5B On Road has an ABM system (Anti-Block Motor), also used in the ELIET Super Prof 2000. This ingenious system fully autonomously regulates the feed speed. A sensor meticulously controls every change in the revolutions of the engine. When the engine RPM suddenly slows, the ABM electronics will respond accordingly by briefly reducing the speed of the feed roller. While the machine shreds all the wood, regulating itself, you can simply continue to work without keeping an eye on the machine.
Natural trimming chips are not discharged on the basis of the removal force of the blade system, but are carried away by the powerful airflow generated by the 330 mm blade turbine.
The Prof 5B On Road is a full-blooded green waste processor. Garden contractors mainly have to deal with voluminous natural trimmings primarily from hedges, shrubs, bushes, plants … thus the Prof 5B On Road becomes their indispensible partner. By means of the wide feed-in opening (560 mm x 520 mm) with auxiliary feed, there is no problem feeding in large amounts of green waste. The feed-in funnel does not reduce further in size in the direction of the blade axis.
The Prof 5B On Road version is equipped with a blade clutch. The advantage of this is that one can start the engine in idle which is beneficial for the life span of the starter motor. Furthermore, the blower turbine can be turned off in this way in order to safely drive the shredder. The blade system is also blocked when the clutch is disengaged.
The blades that are fitted to the Prof 5B On Road are not ordinary steel blades. The Prof 5B On Road is designed to operate at least 8 hours a day. The blades have been specially designed so that their blade life matches the workload and duty cycles.
For the Prof 5B On Road, ELIET opted for a 14 HP Subaru Robin engine because of its favourable torque curve. This modern engine has OHC (Overhead Cams) technology which enables higher compression in the cylinder which translates into better performance. The camshaft is driven by a chain for very precise valve timing and again more stable functioning. The engine comes standard with an electric starter.
