Greenmech eco 150 safetrack any thoughts?

Recommended Posts

I'm on the lookout for a 6" chipper and found a Greenmech eco safetrack for sale so was just wondering if anyone has exerience òf these machines and if so what are they like? I've got a Greenmech cs100 now and have dealt with greenmech for technical help etc and found them to be very good. Any thoughts or advice would be much appreciated. Many thanks. John

They are a good tool, superseded by the later stuff. A good performer and well made!

Ring the factory with the serial number and Jade should be able to tell you who the first owner was and any other known history. They were a good little thing which I found a delight to use, nowt major to look for, just the usual chipper things. Take a lever to check for wear in the flywheel bearings, look at the shear bars, track components, function of controls, wear in the spines of both rollers etc...good luck with your purchase!

We've got one booked for a forestry job up next to Berwick but it won't be for two weeks - happy to report back here with our findings.

 

Interested to see how it copes with the tricky access between the trees and the gradient. 20% overdue thin and the brash and tops need dealing with - it will be chipping (and doing some unofficial pulling, no doubt) non-stop for three days.

 

It's a clean commercial site so won't give us any insight into how it copes with domestic stuff - clotheslines buried inside conifers, and the like.

Sounds like you've got a good test lined up for it, I'd be interested to hear how it gets on? Although I suspect that most of my work will be carried out in easier enviroments.....with the exception of the clothes lines!
