How difficult is it to perform maintenance on the machine?

Proper maintenance is vital. Routine maintenance, including chipper blades, will normally take only 10 minutes.

How long will the chipper blades last?

Depending on the type of wood, age and cleanliness, chipper blades will work well for between five and ten hours. Dry, dirty wood will dull the blades faster. Hydraulic feed machines will have longer blade life.

What are the chippers designed for?

The ECHO Bear Cat chipper is designed to effectively reduce the volume of wood, branches, and other organic material. The typical application for this product group is anywhere from light to commercial to municipalities, and rental.

What type of chippers is available?

ECHO Bear Cat makes chippers with gravity or hydraulic feed, powered by an engine package or a tractor PTO. A hydraulic feed machine has a hydraulic driven feed roller to efficiently feed branches to the chipper disc.

When should I buy a hydraulic feed machine?

If time or efficiency is an issue, a hydraulic feed chipper allows you to be more productive.

When should I buy a manual feed machine?

If you have an infrequent need for a chipper and time is not a factor, a manual feed machine will fit your needs well.

When should I rent instead of buying a chipper?

Rent the machine if you have a very limited or unique job.
