Process leaves, grass-clippings, hedgecuttings and even branches up to a sizeable 4.5cm in diameter quickly and efficiently with the high-quality but very attractively-priced TCK BVT50-A Petrol Chipper-Shredder!
Delivering a hefty 3.5hp to the blade-system is a large 173cc-displacement air-cooled four-stroke engine that ensures you’ll be able to operate anywhere around your property without being tied-down to a mains-cable; and which utilises OHV technology for a marked reduction in noise, vibration, exhaust-emissions and fuel-costs.
Many chipper-shredder have separate hoppers - one for green waste; one for branches. Not so the TCK BVT50-A - it has just the one hopper for all materials, so you can deposit armfuls of mixed debris-types in one go!
Built to last, the TCK BVT50-A Petrol Chipper-Shredder is constructed around a robust tubular-steel frame and features a rust-proof poly hopper.
Sizeable transport wheels make it easy to shift from location to location; while a built-in fan works to keep the blade clean so as to ensure peak performance is maintained at all times.
This model comes with a spacious 30-litre collection-box and carries an extended two-year manufacturer’s warranty.

Almost Right and Good Customer Service.Review by Russ / (Posted on 16/02/2019)Having used this machine on a number of occasions I am able to give this review.
Following assembly, I tried many times to start the machine without success. It didn't help that the instruction manual was entirely in French. MowDirect were quick to react and arranged collection, repair and delivery back to me (though I never did get an English version of the manual.
Pros - powerful and easy to use. Economical on fuel. Good customer service.
Cons - The plastic chippings bin has the male fitting for the engine safety interlock attached but the bin is too flimsy and the interlock fiddly to engage. This should be a natural "push" of the bin on its runners but in practice, it is too fiddly. On the second use, a short piece of branch approx 9mm in diameter exited the bin through the side showing how flimsy the plastic is. There were quite a number of pieces of wood of small diameter that bypassed the cutter.
The machine discharges chippings at the far end of the bin and this quickly builds up causing safety cut out of the engine, though the bin remains only half full when the chippings are levelled out.
Overall - you get what you pay for and it's almost right. This machine is OK for occasional domestic use but there are a number of design flaws that make its use unnecessarily fiddly and frustrating.
