Fab Chipper For the Price
Arrived damaged but MowDirect had a new part to me 1st thing next day thank you.
Box says 60ml oil but it takes 600ml - don't start it with 60! Started 1st pull and devoured Lleylandii branches with ease producing compostable waste.
It's small and light, will fit in a Berlingo van and go through gates unlike many chippers. Like all chippers, if you feed it too much soft green stuff it will clog, however clearing a blockage (or just cleaning it) is 4 allen screws to take the top off (nice and easy). Also this self-feeds i.e. it pulls branches into itself which is essential for me. Some chippers you have to push branches through which hurts your hands and takes ages.
One feature I would like is to be able to see how full the bin is - as it is you have to slide the bin out to take a look which means starting the engine again. Mechanically it's very well built but I 'm not sure whether the bin is flexible and therefore won't break or just a bit flimsy - time will tell but even if it doesn't last, I'll just chip into a different container. This is a lot of machine for £300 (chippers are expensive) and it does exactly what it's supposed to :)
