Grønagergård Savværk har fået specialfremstillet en flisskovl, som kører med ca. 50.000 m3 flis om året… Samt diverse andet materiale på savværket, så derfor er den lavet med ekstra forstærkninger.
Grønagergård Savværk (sawmill) has had a wood chip bucket specially manufactured. The bucket moves approx. 50,000 m3 wood chips per year… As well as various other material at the sawmill, which is why it has been manufactured with extra reinforcements.
Grønagergård Savværk is an environmentally friendly sawmill located in Gjern near Silkeborg. The sawmill primarily sells larch, Douglas fir, spruce, oak and robinia, and 50% of the wood that is sawn ends up as wood chips. That’s why Grønagergård Savværk, in collaboration with Scantruck and the JST steel workshop, customised a large wood chip bucket to suit the sawmill’s needs.
The wood chip bucket moves 50,000 m3 of wood chips per year
Jan Kristensen, founder and owner of Grønagergård Savværk, says that the bucket moves approximately 50,000 m3 of wood chips per year, and is also used for various other materials at the sawmill. That’s why it was important to Jan that the bucket was made with extra reinforcements so that it could withstand a lot.
In addition to the extra reinforcement with triangular wedges at the bottom, the bucket is manufactured with a 40 cm spill guard and raised sides. The bucket is also made with peepholes to improve visibility for the operator. Jan Kristensen says that Marius, who uses the new Manitou and JST wood chip bucket, is extremely satisfied with the machine and the customised bucket.
The wood chip bucket holds 6000 litres
“The bucket can hold 6000 litres, which is 6 m3, so it’s a nicely sized bucket. It weighs about one tonne, so there is some weight on the telehandler when we drive it at a height of 4-5 metres,” says Jan Kristensen, who is pleased that the bucket can reach up and tip the large “tubs” and containers without having to put them down on the ground.
The sawmill stretches over several hectares
Grønagergård Savværk started as a sole proprietorship in 1987 when Jan Kristensen bought a single saw. The sawmill has since developed into a medium-sized company with 60 employees and approximately 5000 roofed square metres out of the several hectares of land that the sawmill covers. In addition to boards, battens, posts and wood chips, the sawmill also has a fine production of shelters, garden furniture, hunting towers and the like.
