We have owned one of these for a few years now from Mow Direct and and have since been very happy and impressed.
Its still starts first pull and after a minute or two to warm up its ready for action.
This is ideally suited to large scale shredding. We regularly run 2.5" branches straight through this machine with ease. It is sometimes used for hours on end through the autumn as we coppice the hazel trees. Even 20 foot long rods, with leaves are destroyed into a lovely path mulch in a matter of seconds.
Its very economical on fuel with little waste. It has used no oil at all other than routine changes and there have been no drop in efficiency or function since it was purchased. If you have lots of shredding to do, especially branches, this is the machine for you.
A word of caution, this is a machine that is very powerful and is best used when not alone for safety reasons. Make sure you have someone with you as it can be quite an intimidating machine and is certainly powerful enough to do some real damage if used irresponsibly, but the guard is plenty study enough to reduce the chances of anything going wrong.
Once purchased, you will smile when you see others struggling with smaller petrol and electric machines, this is the best thing about this chipper. I am a very happy customer and can see this shredder serving me for many years to come.
