2nd hand 6" Jensen or timberwolf? why are jensens more expensive?

Recommended Posts

Hi I am about to buy a 2nd hand 6" chipper and really need some advise about jensen vs timberwolf. the jensens are more expensive even with double the hours and i d like to know why this is? I am looking at a 2006 jensen with 1000 hours on it for £6500. but have seen a few timberwolfs with 600-700 hours for £5000-£5500.

any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I would go for the jensen put aside enough money to do the main bearings and give it a general going over and you'll have a chipper that's good for another1000hr++no problems.

Jenson every time. Will chip a lot faster and cleaner than a timber wolf

Built better and stronger and not built to a price like a tw

 

I opted for a 18mth old Jenson for similar money to a new tw (after demoing it for a week) and never regretted it once

If your using it yourself and on price work it's a no brained

Jensens are more expensive because you get more machine :)

Same reason a Mercedes is more expensive than a Skoda.

 

Right way of thinking but modern mercs aint great but skoda are bloody good.
