Tiny chipper for zero access garden

Recommended Posts

Hoping somebody has a suggestion for the above. 

 

My sister has a first floor flat in Lewisham with a shared garden with sod all access. I've got a sycamore to take down for her, but as usual getting rid it is the issue. 

 

I'm wondering if there's a half capable chipper that can be carried up and down narrow stairs by two blokes that might do the job. 

 

If not it's through the house (not really an option) or a bloody big bonfire in a really small garden.

Sounds like a helicopter job to me Joe

I know right, but since Brexit it's hard to find decent pilots.

Well she's better looking than me if that's much use?

Those little bugnots are probably the only ones small enough to be man handled up stairs.

2 of us quite happily carried my Hyundai mini chipper through an old house with tiny doorways and a very tight 90 degree turn. 

Wheels off, hoppers off, fuel drained and it wasn't too bad.

I would probably get it up a flight or 2 of indoor stairs if I had to, but it would have to be with the right person helping! 

And its a fair bit of spannering so not ideal with a hired machine...

I seem to remember that Rob Rainford dismantled his CS100 and carried that through a house and up some stairs to a roof top garden some years ago.

Greenmech cs100 is a heavy bastard,its the smallest greenmech do and it meant for towing.

Id say it would take alot of stripping to get it up stairs

I’ve worked in similar circumstances but used a builders chute to fire the arisings down out the window to the truck, worked a treat and hire cost was low.
