Scottish Woodlands - Tool box Talk
A branch wood chipper suffered catastrophic failure when the steel chipping blades shattered, were pulled into the flywheel fins and ejected out of the chipper chute.
Although these events are relatively rare, the metal fragments are ejected with such velocity, that if they were to strike a person they would, in all likelihood, cause a major injury.
As well as posing a safety risk, in most instances, the repair damage costs, not including stand down costs, is in the region of thousands of pounds.
