Recommended Posts

In theory, using or supplying a non compliant machine could lead to prosecution or an insurance claim. Providing a non compliant machine for someone to use is something that we, as a manufacturer is a hot topic and the hoops we have to jump through is a constant worry!

Interested to know, if anyone willing to share, how much do you book in a wee chipper for on a days job?

Lumag, GTM or Wee-Wang industries, anyone actually REALLY used one in anger for years on end, hundreds of hours? 

It would be interesting to hear from those owners.

I should imagine all these wee chippers are much of a muchness,,  a carcass a blade connected to two bearings.. a shoot long enough that you can't reach the blade with your arms and thats about it..  

 

The only real issue being quality control on the production line..

I don't know if the Chinese ones have hour counters?

None of the little chipper have hour counters - just buy a tacho and fit it yourself, easy peasy :)

My under a grand chipper is proving its worth - only gets out once/twice a week but so far bleedin BRILL for the money.

This Jansen GTS 1500E looks good and the price ain't too shabby either.

 

 

Roaring thru that conifer ! Think we should buy a couple. The output is pretty fast, plus not as nick able as yr towed kit. K

That's an impressive little thing. Shouldn't have watched that, now I'll have to get one! Great for those small jobs where it's really overkill bringing the mog and farmi to Mrs miggins semi d to prune that 20 ft sycamore!
