Greenmech are definitely the best!

I need to post another thank you to Greenmech - they only seem to employ great people!

Peter in parts has sorted me out superfast, and Mac has taught me a little trick over the phone that made an awkward job very easy. These guys are always on hand on the rare occasion that their assistance is needed, and their knowledge of their products is unbelievable!

Thank you guys, you're mega!

(Now get sharpening that pencil Pete B, you're letting the side down...).

What was the little trick?? Im interested.
They were top when we had our gm. The only thing letting the side down was the machine itself.

YAY!
Go Greenmech!
I've been there and seen the factory, had the tour and been bought a fry up by one of the directors.
My next investment is a Greenmech BUT due to E.U regs I can't buy a new road tow at U.K prices until Oct 2012
Nuts...

Thanks Dan, still cannot sharpen it that much tho!

Sorry you feel that way David, I wish I could so something about that, but your opinion is your opinion.

Try a 1928 or a 1623 if you get a chance (I haven't used a quadchip yet but hear they are even better than the 1623) - I can only imagine your poor experience stems from using some of the older designed machines. I was sceptical until I demo'd one - if you compare like for like there isn't another machine in their respective classes that come close in terms of performance imo.

The opposition to the brand is amazing, and probably not helped by the cross-over of products in different size categories and the similarity in appearance throughout the range - with the exception of the quadchip they all look much the same - an appearance that hasn't progressed drastically over the years.

A greenmech with a letterbox feed is a totally different animal to the square feed machines in the range - we stepped down from a 9 inch machine to a 7.5 inch (reluctantly, but the price was right) and have actually been blown away by the increase in performance.

Pm me your best best price on the alpha machine Pete, let's find out how far apart we are...

Timberwolf. I hire one quite a lot and it jxust seems a great bit of kit. Used a jenson but that made a mess under the chipper and rollers used to get stuck open.
Tw is compact reliable sturdy and I like the orange colour
