Hello - hardly use arbtalk so apologies for no idea how to use it. I have come to this group to ask a question about mini choppers but am I asking it in an already existing thread? Can I go ahead and put my Q out there? Cheers

Nice one Steve - do any of you in this wonderful group have or have used the Skarper chippers? I’m considering C120 pro and have been looking at mini chippers for some time - again thanks to all those who use this thread as it’s been invaluable. 

 

Id like to know how easy it is to remove chute. Height in the spec is something like 1390 and my van rear doors are around 1300. I appreciate it can go in a trailer but in van would be ideal. I saw someone mention a mini winch in van to haul chipper inside. Any shouts on brands/makes? 

 

All the best

And cheap Italian copies! I would rather support the UK economy, more so now than ever!

 

BTW, what happened to the italian copy of the CS100?

From the man who holidayed in Greece and not Skegness...

At least the French have made an effort to holiday within the hexagon this year.

Apparently parts for the peruzzo are now available through rytec, I believe but I haven’t had to find out yet, it’s never missed a beat.
Equipment 4 industry went under, shame they did offer good customer service. 
I agree with you on buying local where possible Pete but we ended up with the Italian copy due to needing the tracks.

How come the E4I went under!?! He always made out that he was doing loads? I just thought that Rytec had muscled it over......

I’m not sure, so don’t feel it fair to speculate.

Not used the chipper so can’t advise on that, my CS100 went in the back of a T6 but at 1300 high doors sounds like you have a smaller van so would it fit ok length wise?
I built my own mount for a winch on the ladder rack of my Hilux, to pull my CS100 in and stumpgrinders etc easy enough.
I used a Rhino winch with rope not wire (nicer on the hands and anything it passes over) 1500kg pull but i only use maybe 250kg of that ability.. comes with a full wiring kit too, i ran power from the battery and connected it on anderson plugs so it only gets power when i want to use it.
In a van you would probably have to bolt down to the chassis rails to get a strong enough mount point

Appreciate that mate a lot of helpful info there. Something to go on looking at winches. So yea it’s a swb Renault trafic 2007. Surprisingly roomy length wise so that should fit in fine it’s just height which may be too little. I’m assuming it’s the chute but would be helpful to see one in person. CS100 ain’t a bad shout I had looked at them for a while until i saw skarper. 230 odd kg.... how much is green mech roughly?
