Allen SC763AL

If you are an estate gardener with a reasonable number of borders to maintain, or a contractor looking after domestic gardens where the green waste needs reducing and carting off-site, it could be worth your while to take a closer look at this machine. We also reckon it's a good item for hire firms.

“This is a really great bit of kit. It does not struggle at all — a brilliant machine,” our tester enthuses. A stone falls into the funnel as the next load of material is pushed into the funnel. No problem: this chipper/shredder bites back and the stone is crushed to pieces.
The SC763AL looks robust. It has an all-steel construction for strength and durability. The chipper and shredder feed chutes are at comfortable, safe and efficient operating heights. The 16 free-swinging hammers in the shredding mechanism are drilled at both ends so they can be flipped and reversed to give four times more working life.
The tester is impressed with the ease of use and safety features on this unit: “The signage is distinctive and clear.”
Mounted on a frame with two wheels, it could be transported on a trailer and pushed into the working position. It will pass through a standard gateway, yet it is powerful enough to chip branches of 73mm in diameter.
