So the machine based on the CS100 is more expensive than the CS100? With no UK dealer network to be supported by
we have been supplying the Peruzzo for 2 and a but years now. In that period zero warranty failures, zero none warranty failures, zero engine issues. 100 % customer satisfaction. I would like to think every customer is now a friend. The dealer thing is a tough one, great if you have a product that has a long conditional warranty period that means for it to comply has to be serviced at extra cost and great if you need to take it back somewhere where there are warranty issues.

Blimey!!! Them CS100 copies from our old dealer in Italy have gotten expensive! Why the price hike?
The tb100 towable ones are, hence we don't sell them. However the mildly more expensive tracked, narrow access one we do as it is unique in the market place and everybody who buys them seems to pony up the extra wonga. Even the national trust are buying them now for towpath/footpath work.

If you want tracked, buy a tracked barrow and a cs100.

  Benefits of both machines and less restrictions.

  Once you build up your leg muscles, you won’t bother with the tracks.

  On wheels is very manouverable and you don’t rip up the ground like tracks.

seems a bit of an expensive way round trying to move the cs100 about. I have used a mates CS 100 for the day and found its a good machine but any slight incline or bumpy ground (moles are the main culprit) then your legs are burning and your leaving tramlines through the lawn. Shorley the tracked machine would only damage the ground when turning?  

 

does anyone on hear own a TB100? would the chipper part unbolt from the tracked chassis and could you fit a tipping wheel barrow to the chassis of the tracked part (obviously with carefull design and enginering).

Hi All,
 
so, I am in the market for a 'Wee Chipper'. (i'm sure the question has been asked before but as there is 183 pages on this thread and i am on daddy day care to a very sick 5 year old i don't have the time to read the whole thing)
 
so far i have narrowed it down to the Puruzzo TB100-C Tracked chipper, the Greenmech CS100 and the Jo Beau M400. 
 
The Puruzzo is tracked so is leading at the moment as most tree work i do are either in huge estate gardens, so quite a trek to push/pull or are a bit steep and i have struggled to get the 200kg machines up the hill and out of the garden (i managed to get that Timberwolf gravity fed machine stuck in a garden and had to pull it out with a 4:1 pulley).
 
I would appreciate other peoples opinions and options as i cant make my mind up.
 
Cheers
 
Hi there, great to see the Peruzzo is favourite. If you would like a demo on the Peruzzo tracked/narrow access unit then please get in touch.
I am the owner of the company who imports the Peruzzo. My mobile no is 07971856205.

Must be a typo?! An 18hp can’t be nigh on 2k more expensive? You could buy a 14hp one then buy a new crate 18hp Vanguard on eBay and still have change
What a good idea. Still prefer up selling to the tracked version. Your right though there is a mahoosiv difference from Peruzzo. I will take it up with factory. 14 HP seems right price mind. RRP Inc vat.

Yes it does, you can buy the tipping body for approx 300.00 + vat and then you have your tracked narrow..
