Just bought myself the skarper c90. Used for the first time yesterday on a couple of plum take downs. Handled the brash upto 2.5 inches really well and pulled it straight through without any hesitation. Anything bigger I kept as firewood. 

Bought from Jim at Upson Mowers. Very helpful guy and great service. IMG_20181109_081018.thumb.jpg.0183e8db45855b35d9c00ca6d9c1aa63.jpg

How are you getting that in and out of your van? Is it a struggle?

Clint... I manage fine. I thought I would struggle too, but with 2 8ft scaffold boards and one scaffold board in the middle to walk up then its manageable. I have a rope through a karabiner on my van bulkhead and attach the other end to the chipper handle and then I use the rope to slowly pull it up. It fits in through the back door with 1cm to spare above.

Hello 

havent been on here in a long while, since I brought my cs100 as was super chuffed with it! But am getting to the stage where I’m getting fed up of pulling it in and out of my truck! So I need some ideas for a new chipper which pretty much moves its self with as much power as the cs100 if not better

I use a ifor Williams tipper trailer for the chippings and put the cs100 in my transit custom but this week I’ve spent a week on taking 15ft out of a 80 metre hedge and have had to put it all the way around the outside of the hedge which was exhausting. I’m thinking either Peruzzo tracked or Jo Beau M500 

would like another cs100 just a shame they don’t make it easier to manoeuvre

Hello 

im based in kings lynn 

norfolk, 40 miles from Norwich 

they do look very similar to the cs100 if they perform just as good but with tracks I don’t think I’ve have an issue with buying one of them. Fed up of walking up and down steep gardens getting to the top and nearly passing out. Especially when I know I can make my life easier
