    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 !

    Thanks for that honest and straightforward explanation, does make sense.

     

    Maybe I will come to the APF this year, not been for a while. The tracked one sounds interesting, I wouldn't want to give up self drive but the M500 is pricey to replace if/when the time comes.

    Jim is a genuine bloke and great company, not tried the chippers they look pretty solid and well built though, and definitely not Chinese.

    Jim you may remember I was on your stand last year giving my Dad a hand, hope you're well?
