  4. Why It’s Essential To Use Sharp Chipper Blades

    Totally agree that blades need to be sharp and kept up to but unsure what the blog explained regarding that. Lots of debate regarding genuine or other blades over the years. i have always been a believer in genuine blades as ultimately as you say that’s the part of the chipper that does all the work tbh but cost is always a consideration.
