    Review: Foxwood c120pro narrow access chipper relieve

    About 6 months ago after searching the market and deciding what best suited our needs and budget we purchased a foxwood c120pro narrow access wood chipper from Upson mowers, We chose this machine both on spec and physically visible simplicity / build quality ! Boasting a 23hp Vanguard V twin petrol engine it has the highest displacement of any gravity fed narrow access machine on the UK market. It's high torque belt drive and "supercharged drum" combined with the 23hp engine give superior chipping capacity @ 4.75" and the ability to handle material faster and smoother with less need to hold material back to prevent slowing / stalling. At only 720mm wide and with the optional remote control electric winch getting this machine into tight places as well as onto and off of trailers / ramps is a breeze even with one person. It's also far easier to move even with it being 235kg compared to a V shaped counterpart due to its chassis / handle design and center of balance. The narrow access chassis can be unbolted with 5 hex head bolts and replaced with an optional extra off-road towing chassis for use in or on parks or golf courses etc. The blades are also far easier to access / replace too !

    M500s are up to 25hp now as well, he said in the video the biggest hp he could find was 18.

     

    You're right though, bit of a strange story/review.

    Wasn't aware they did the m500 in any lager than the 21hp gx690 my mistake ! Don't really see it as in the same catagory though as hydrostatic drive ? Or am I wrong ? What's the money on an m500 ?

    M500 doesn't really fit the catagory does it though ?

    Not to piss on your chips (ok, I'm gonna piss on your chips) but- £5800 plus vat for that????

     

    It's a Chinese trolley chipper with a Briggs and Shattem! I could stick a new twin cylinder Loncin engine on my Chinese chipper and still have change from £2k all in.


    Glad you're happy though, that's all that matters.

    You possibly could but I doubt it with a Jansen gts1500 being around £1800 converted from euro as couldn't find one for sale on Google after a brief look and a loncin 24hp v twin being about £900 ? It is in fact made in Europe ! Gtm's machines and many other Chinese copies are based of these ! I actually do a bit with GTM but their equivalent machine at the time of me purchasing the European made foxwood though a British family business was £11500 plus vat ! Here is the website for GTM's manufacturering plant

     😜 If you feel it was a spam post it wasn't I have autism and memorise machinery specs pretty quick ! Was just trying to post something helpful and informative based on personal experience paid for with my own money ! I get most lads and lasses on here are all running round with mogs and bandits and climbing 800 foot redwoods. but still should have thought better of trying to share something useful and that I was pleased with as opposed to the sh!tposting the frequently goes on.

    Really? It looks identical. Is this a case of a european manufacturer copying the Chinese for once? 🤣

     

    Where are they manufactured? 

    I'll reply with this ! I'll let you figure out whom compied whom ! I'll give you a clue foxwood's manufacturers are in Europe and they are built from scratch to imo far higher standards than some other brands !

    He’s just word for word put this review up on Facebook AT.

     

    Deffo not just an end user.

     

    Definitely an end user mate sorry if it came across strange ! Posting on both didn't know if everyone whom frequents here uses Facebook arbtalk and vise versa ! If it's a bit "sales pitch" as mentioned on both posts in comments when asked I'm good on specs and was just trying to post something actually informative that someone in the position I was in when deciding what to buy may find useful. As when I normally see the wee chipper ? Asked it's normally replied to with a similar barrage of "pencil sharpener"  "quicker to burn it" etc etc. I previously have owned a cs100, used a 13/75g, played with JB's and also a few more "unknown brands"  I'm saying what I think when compared to a cs100 in my field of use which is very specific and probably quite rare for most arb firms !

    I was wondering! Sounded a little spammy.

     

    They can't be selling many at that money.

    I'll just remind everyone that a cs100 retails @ £5450 + vat while I know in this game retail and what they actually sell for is far different I feel 6400 inc vat for a machine of the Foxwood's spec is a very good deal ! As mentioned it's got an electric remote winch for loading and a High discharge 360 spout too unlike the square 3 position one on another machine I've owned that's a bit V shaped and green, I'm by no means saying that the aforementioned "green V" is a bad machine but for what I'm doing in a rather specialized field the c120 is better suited. Pictured below the high spout and winch are visible ! I also liked the interchangeable chassis making it narrow acces, towable it tracked at the spannering of 4 bolts !

    Much the same as Lumag stuff. Lots of 'Germany' stickers on the machines but ommitting the crucial preface 'Made in'! Plus a nice website with lots of photos of German looking men in overalls, if that's your thing.

     

    I'd wager that's the same drum unit and skid as you can buy by the dozen on Alibaba.

    You maybe correct for the following ! I'll let you figure out their name over here

    Text reads like classic sales blurb. No buyer writes "boasting a 23hp Vanguard...". So obvious.

    I work sales part time and tree work the rest but not for foxwood or upson mowers, though I do work with many other well know brands ! Which might say something when I went for the foxwood over somthing I could have had at dealer nett ! 🤔 And like mentioned in response to a few other comments I'm a wizz on the specs ! So it's quite easy for me to pop that in ! You may say it's a bit "sales" but being 10mm narrower than my previous machine makes a difference for me ! Because I do a lot of work as pictured below, the fact the machine also packs another 1" capacity / 6hp than most other and a high discharge means I can use it like a bigger machine on the rare occasions I need to chip into a tipper or grain trailer etc. And as also mentioned elsewhere a cs100 details for £5450 + vat. Though like I said retail and sale aren't the same necessarly 😜

    Is it not easier to do the chipping out in the garden rather than in the kitchen?

    Even if you point the discharge chute out an open window, you'll still get dust all over the crockery!
