Hints & Tips
It’s just about time to get back out into the garden and start work pruning shrubs and fruit bushes and trees.
The pruned wood can be almost impossible to compost down and this is where a chipper shredder is worth its weight in gold, leaving you with material ready for the compost heap or to be used around the roots of plants as a valuable mulch.
We think this Garland BG50 Petrol Chipper Shredder is the lowest priced petrol machine available.
Much stronger than electrically powered ones this machine can take branches up to 2 in in diameter and can handle other garden waste like plant stems and leaves as well.
It is powered by a 159 cc engine and has the benefit of being able to work anywhere in the garden with worrying about a power supply.
It is designed with a large opening and has a two way feed system and the shredding blade has a fan incorporated to minimise the machine clogging.
Sturdily built on a metal frame it has transport wheels to assist in moving it.
And the best bit is the price as it costs just £399.95, £200 less than the manufacturer’s recommended retail price.
It is delivered free the next working day and has a one year manufacturer’s warranty.
And if you’re looking for a pruning tool, the MD 4-in-1 Multi Tool could well be the answer.
It is a pruner, hedge trimmer, line trimmer and brush cutter all in one a great money-saving device.
There is a 25.4 cc engine and a full crank, easy to start and with a diaphragm carburettor so it can be used at any angle.
The D-shaped handle and shoulder harness make it comfortable to use.
The four attachments are very easy to fix.
The pruning attachment has a 25.5 cm chainsaw bar to cut through thicker branches and is automatically lubricated.
There are special prices on strimming line, safety helmet with visor and muffs, work gloves and engine and chain oil as well.
It costs £179.95, a substantial reduction on the maker’s recommended price, has free next working day delivery and a two year manufacturer’s guarantee.
