Was hoping you'd send them me :thumbup::lol:

Might, might not! Depends on how much you give me!

 

Why three anyway?

Obviously I'll pay for them, did some voluntary work yesterday and had to go off-road with it on a trailer, hopper bouncing around sheared them both clean off and the one on chute has been damaged for a while. Sure the handles are polystyrene  :laugh1:

Hired out a Timberwolf TW13/75G I think it was, needed something for chipping up some Eucalyptus in an awkward garden. £50 per day and what a total waste of money! anything over an inch just bounced off the blades and anything under just sat in the shute. Plus it may be narrow enough to get through a gate but took two men to haul it up the garden. I honestly could have carried the amount of brash it chewed up down the garden to the trailer in a quarter of the time, and the chip was course looking, told the customer they'd have some nice fine chip for the flowerbeds, I'd have made better looking chip if i'd taken an axe to the brash, certainly would have been faster. Are there any micro chippers with a better design that helps pull the brash in?

We hired that model from time to time ten years or so ago, it was ok if the blades were sharp but useless if they weren't!

my little Hyundai is so much nicer to use and I'd say all the other similar priced ones would be similar, with the cs100 types better again?

still not the easiest thing to move on your own, but doable.

Probably the blade was not sharp
