Motorised driven tracks would be a start! 😂 yes even if it means adding a separate little engine 

Buy cheap track barrow n bolt it on- sorted. K

Well I joined the club today with purchase of an 'LTS' brand 15HP machine. All these Chinese jobbies are much the same, so I went for the lowest price I could find after viewing a YouTube video for the same thing in diffent colours. At a cheeky offer of £1120 inc VAT it seemed a bargain. I was about to buy the trailed Jansen type from an Italian company, but I found this cheaper and wasn't all that keen on a wide axle and tow bar that wasn't road rated.

Should be fine for landscaper type use.

It didn't want to feed some old dry ash (bounced around in the hopper), but some bushy holly flew through- very impressed. Will be great for small hedge removals etc.

Local to me firm, had a few bits off them and a mate of mine buys a fair bit off him, nearly all stuff is chinese like ya say but to be honest theyre good enough for the money i rekon.

Thanks for that. The chap on the phone from the hire place only asked one question and that was “are you cutting any conifers” I said no and he said good because the Timberwolf is rubbish with it and you will spend your time unblocking it!

The smaller chippers dont like conifers much. They shred it into a fine dust that settles in the chute.  Best way to avoid it is to make sure you don't put too much through at one time. Simple enough in theory, but the temptation always wins out in my experience!
