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? 

@Pete B is your man for a questions greenmech related.
The CS100 may well be more money but will have good service backup where as some of the Far Eastern machines can be some what hit or miss for spares when something goes wrong leaving you with a expensive paper weight. I can’t comment on the skarper chippers I’m afraid, but would advise you check spares availability (on any make) before spending out.

In defense of Chinesium chippettes.

Agrieuro, who supplied my GM CS80 Loncin engine clone, also have a comprehensive spares list available online with exploded diagrams.

Anyone know much about the DR chippers? I’ve got a Greenmech cs100 was looking for something a little more powerful but don’t want to spend too much money on a new machine but also don’t want to go down the route of a road towable one.

Does anyone know the prices for the jo beau m500? I’ve also looked at the Eliet tracked which seems to me expensive. And also been looking at the new Peruzzo tracked. Also needs something which isn’t so hard to push up into my custom van.

I’ve seen there’s a pro version now looks really good but the price of some of these machines £10,000 plus vat always seems a lot of money

Haecksler have an assisting driven wheel option on at least one of their models

Hello Connagh. I use an Eliet SuperProf 2000 wheel driven. I've been surprised at the terrain the machine can negotiate. The narrow width of has also proved to be an advantage for 'domestic' jobs. I'm sure you'll find a make and model to suit your needs. Good luck
