This heavy duty petrol-powered garden shredder/chipper, is a tough, robust unit, designed to cope with every type of garden waste from 2" branches to brambles, hedge cuttings and leaves. This powerful, versatile shredder features a side chute for chipping branches and twigs etc. Whilst the top chute is for green waste, which is pulverised by 27 hard-wearing hammers. The chipper shreds the debris down into smaller, convenient chips - which are a lot easier to dispose of, as it takes less bags to gather the waste. If you plan to compost the waste yourself, smaller chips will actually turn into compost quicker. The heavy-duty capabilities of this machine make it ideal for professional gardeners to use on large jobs, such as public parks and gardens. This convenient, mobile garden chipper can be tilted onto its wheels and moved around the garden easily, and the side chute folds up to reduce its width for storage. Whilst using the chipper, wear full protective equipment - including a hard hat, safety visor, heavy-duty gloves and ear defenders - to protect yourself from any flying debris and the loud noise produced by the machine.
