Felling and chipping trials on a five-years old poplar coppice using an innovative system. Preliminary results. The Consiglio per la ricerca e sperimentazione in agricoltura,in cooperation with the Spapperi company, has designed a system specifically apt for the two-phases harvest of five-year poplar in Medium Rotation Coppice (MRC). The yard is composed of a cut-windrower and a self-propelled chipper equipped with a pick up. In the first experiences, the cut-windrower has reached an operative working capacity of 0,22 ha h-1 with an operational hourly production of 44 t h-1. The self-propelled chipper, instead, has showed an operative working capacity equal to 0.18 ha h-1 and an operational hourly production around 35 t h-1. Both machines have, also, shown a good quality of the work performed and the results obtained denote the chance to reduce both the total times of use and the costs related to the harvest.
