Wood chippers are some of the noisiest machines working in the urban environment and because of this, GreenMech have long been at the forefront of the technological drive to engineer quieter machines. For several years we have also been keen supporters of the UK Health & Safety Executive’s Buy Quiet campaign to highlight issues around noise-induced hearing loss in the workplace.
As a result of our ongoing mission, we have produced probably the quietest chippers on the market, achieved in part thanks to the Disc-Blades, the insulated steel chassis that protects the engine, and a novel means of extracting the hot air and exhaust heat from the acoustic engine housing via the chipper chamber.
All new products developed by GreenMech since 2006 have incorporated significant noise reduction features but the noise level on the latest Arborist range is 115dB offering a significant reduction on comparative models.
“ GreenMech will continue to implement design features that will lower noise emissions and ensure that correct and clear noise emission data is available in our sales and technical literature. We expect to achieve further reductions in the future.”
