Perfect fit for my yard size!
The model SC3206 3-inch is great around a small to medium yard. The amount of mulch that I got from my yard work was more then needed and have shared with my nieghbors. It's great in helping in reducing my cost for mulch and water cost. In my small yard, the best feature is it's size. I can store it with taking to much space and ease to roll around to the work area.

A Great Machine!
I own an ECHO Bear Cat 75311 (SC3342) Chipper/Shredder. (A great machine.) I have owned it for five years. This is a great working & beautifully designed piece of machinery. I change the shredder knives ever couple of years because I shred a lot of leaves for composting every year.
I usually process about 10 - 12 yards of chopped leaves each fall. The 75311 (SC3342) Chipper/Shredder chops them up just great. After rotting down, I end up with 5 - 6 yards of great soil for the garden. All made possible by my ECHO Bear Cat chipper/shredder. Couldn't be without it. It really is one great machine.
