Hey! Can I join as I've just bought a CS100 18hp electric start.

Feeding it is like teasing a pitbull with a bone, it scares my groundy witless!

He's not got the nerve to hold on to wheat he's feeding it with yet:001_unsure:

Thinks its going to rag his arm off!:scared1:

I'm off tomorrow morning to Central Darkest Bretagne to fell a 16m 3 leader cupressus. Its second 'big job'

The client wants the wood...:confused1:

I've also bought myself a 'tiny tach' to attach to the machine and count the hours which should be usefull.

I'm sure our chairman SWB will be along with the official welcome soon enough! :laugh1:

The 14hoss is £3,495 plus, whilst the 18hoss with electricstart is £3,995 plus. Apart from the battery and starter the weight is the same as near as dammit.

 

"Looks like Road Runner" MEEP MEEP!:thumbup:

 

Much difference in chipping power?

 

I'm getting a demo of one soon hopefully

Time for Top Trumps wee chippers. Mine will blow chip 15 feet into a heap, 42feet max distance.:biggrin:

 

You've measured it?!

 

Had the M500 on full tilt most of the day - didn't like dead elm much but got the job done well enough. Then went on to a cherry - absolutely blatted it through! I've noticed that mine seems to absolutely love conifer - pulls it in like crazy and throws the chip a long way but I haven't measured it!

 

Was thinking of modding the chute just before the swivel head with a stub so that I can attach my backpack blower to make the chip really fly!

 

Wee chipper chip race is on!

Oh yes I measured it, :blushing: and then the Top Trump idea flashed thru my head. Inspiration its called. I thought instead of the usual "my saws better than your saw" type review, we could make it fun and trounce the wee pretender chipper into the ground with our superior machines:001_rolleyes: Sort of a factual product review, with the stats that matter, not the factory gumf that no-one reads.
