Quick question. We have quite a large small holding, with large volumes of material to be composted. I think that a lot of this needs shredding rather than chipping - the material is likely to be largely of the consistency of hedge clippings and the like. Anything larger than about an inch in diameter is likely to be processed as kindling or logs.

Does anyone have much experience of processing this sort of stuff? Would a chipper shredder (with hammers) of this type be any good, or actually am I going to be better with a good chipper?

For hedge clippings etc, assuming you're not in a mad rush for the compost, just compost them as they are, they will rot down in a year or two, especially if you can mix up the pile with a loader/digger and other materials.

My JoBeau is poor on hedge trimmings, it doesn't blow much but rather the momentum of the wood chips being thrown out of the drum carries the leaves with it. Material needs to be woody so bigger hedge cuttings say 10mm diameter and up will go ok.

You are maybe better with a shredder for the really green stuff. I just dump it as green waste, not tried one of those machines.

Hi
Maybe for a millions time I am considering of buying a chipper. I have looked haecksler 4 and I think that would be great for our job. But it looks almost identical to other Chinese chippers but have pricetag 3X of others. I have used one cheap chinese chipper and it was terrified but it also was rental and prety bad condition. Just thinkin is haecksler really worth of extra money because you can get example Jansen 1500 about half of that.

Hello, our Haecksler chippers are entirely built in Europe. 

 

Except for the engines that come from Honda or Briggs. The difference with the Chinese machines is, in addition to the higher price for labor, also in the highest quality parts that we mount on our machines. Also a strong frame and a precise construction is what makes these chippers work so well.  

Ps. I did not take the time yet to announce this on Arbtalk but we have launched our newly designed Haecksler 4. Here 's a picture!

Probably £4 grand and it takes up to 75mm in diameter. Better off with a TW13/75 at £3 grand plus vat but weights 188 kgs so you need ramps to get it in and out of van.

I prefer the roller feed machines, I still reckon the CS100 is hard to beat but haven’t used the Jo Beau equivalent.
It would be mostly used on small domestic jobs and Orchard maintenance where I would have to move it around quite a bit so weight would be a factor.

Yes the weight is a problem with the TW 13/75 but I would like to attach a wider funnel so the hedges don't get stuck as much then it would be hard to beat.
