A Truly Superb Product!
I just picked up the SC3206 and was concerned it would be underpowered compared to my previous 10hp and up machines. No way. Heavy flywheel makes this machine run like butter. The vertical orientation of the shredder shoot accepts my garden debris way better than my previous machines and you can't beat the small footprint in the garage. Thanks for a truly superb product.

Illustrations may include optional equipment and accessories and may not include all standard equipment.
There isn't much that can stand up to the mighty ECHO Bear Cat 9 inch chippers. Based on a solid 4 inch "C" channel frame with torsion axle suspension, these machines make branches and trees up to 9 inches in diameter disappear. Features include a 15 inch diameter feed roller containing 10 knife blades, four reversible chipping blades, an adjustable 4-sided anvil and an 8 inch round discharge chute.
The 30 inch diameter, 1.25 inch thick dynamically-balanced chipper disc weighs 275 pounds and produces tremendous chipping power.
A triple banded belt drive generates positive power, and a hydrostatic feed control provides the operator with infinite feed settings for all types and sizes of debris. A telescoping tongue along with torsion axle suspension makes towing easy. Service and maintenance is made easy by a hinged disc cover.
With 18 gallons in the fuel tank, you'll create piles of chips between refills.

How difficult is it to perform maintenance on the machine?
ECHO Bear Cat products are designed with ease of maintenance in mind. Proper maintenance is vital and should be performed routinely with blades, belts and bearings being most important.
How long will the chipper blades last?
Depending on the type of wood, age and cleanliness, chipper blades will work well for between 5-15 hours. Dry, dirty wood will dull the blades faster. Alternate dry and wet material to extend blade life. Hydraulic feed machines will have longer blade life.
What are these 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/ or rental.
What type of chippers are 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 gravity feed machine?
If you have an infrequent need for a chipper and time is not a factor, a gravity feed machine will fit your needs.
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.
