The S46TR will be capable of chewing up just about any kind of greenwaste, from rootballs to hedge trimmings. It can also process pallets, contaminated timber, doors and window frames and even uPVC plastics. It has a large (426mm) inlet, which allows awkward materials such as gorse and blackthorn to be fed in.
It is able to deal with most slopes and is particularly suitable for roadside and motorway maintenance.
With increased pressure on businesses to process their timber waste rather than burning, the interest in small, economic machines has grown – a market Greenmech is responding to as it introduces the GMR-100.
This unit shares a lot of design principles to be found on larger machines, but is a compact unit measuring just 72cm wide so it can access tight spaces to ‘chip on the spot’. The in-feed chute is 55cm x 43.5cm, making the machine suitable for reducing armfuls of hedge and shrub trimmings while also being capable of taking timber up to 10cm in diameter.
Processing is via two reversible blades mounted on a steel drum, with power coming from a 14hp V-twin Vanguard engine. The machine has an appetite of up to 5cu m per hour and can discharge into a trailer or bag, or direct onto the ground. Weighing less than 200kg, the GMR-100 can be transported in a van or trailer.
Echo Bear Cat is launching a new addition to its range of professional chippers. The CH1238DH is capable of reducing a wood with a diameter of 30cm to fine chips. The heavy duty machine has 23cm blades and a 99hp diesel Kubota Engine. The recommended price is £27,995 plus VAT.
