Eliet introduces the PROF 5, the successor to the PROF 4, the entry-level model for the garden professional. The PROF 5 has numerous configuration possibilities which enable the garden contractor to configure the machine according to his specific needs and budget. In this way, one can opt for a model with or without a feed roller, with or without wheel drive.
As a professional, you know that shredding never involves wood alone. Most shredding jobs entail a mixture of leafy green waste and branches. And most shredding machines are only capable of processing either of these without the risk of blockage.
Eliet shredders are unique for their patented Chopping Principle™. Just like an axe, the blades chop the wood according to the direction of the fibres. The blades system makes thousands of chopping motions per minute and also cuts all leafy and wet green waste without any problems. This makes ELIET shredders suitable for almost any kind of application.
The new PROF 5 is available with a blow chute that will deposit the chopped debris at your chosen location. In contrast to many other shredders featuring chip-discharge blowers, the PROF 5 can also handle damp natural trimmings very well and with hardly any danger of blockage of the turbine. The integration of a genuine blower turbine allows the PROF 5 to benefit from a suction effect through the feed hopper. This ensures smooth and easy feeding of leafy natural trimmings because the material is, as it were, sucked into the shredding chamber.
BLOW CHUTE - 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 5 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 5 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.
FEED ROLLER - The PROF 5 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.
IMPELLER - 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.
FEED-IN FUNNEL - The PROF 5 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 5 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.
STABLE WHEEL BASE - The PROF 5 is constructed from a strongly welded frame and rests on a couple of large tires. With a wheel base 780 mm wide, this shredder is extremely stable even if one temporarily deviates from the beaten tracks. The large swivel castor wheels enable the PROF 5 to easily navigate through narrow garden passageways. The machine is equipped with a parking brake for maximum safety while working and during transport.
ELIET BLADES - The blades that are fitted to the Prof 5 are not ordinary steel blades. The Prof 5 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.
ELECTRIC STARTER - For the PROF 5 B, 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.
WHEEL DRIVE - Your comfort was the priority that was top of our engineer's minds when they designed the wheel drive. You cannot simply move a shredder weighing 273 kg wherever you want. So the Prof 5 is also available self-propelled. Each of the two drive wheels is equipped with a powerful hydraulic motor. If you purchase the self-propelled version, then you will be able to navigate any rugged terrain or slope with the greatest of ease. The swivel caster wheels provide the necessary manoeuvrability for weaving between obstacles in gardens, parks and woods. A handlebar mounted lever allows you to change forward or reverse speeds with a simple flick of the wrist. The further you move the lever forwards or back, the faster the machine moves in the chosen direction.
