Testimonials

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.

MSRP $19,995


The CH611DH is powered by a 1.1L Kubota diesel engine. It features a rotor that's 26 x 1 inch thick, 165 pounds, dynamically-balanced and mounted with a cantilever design. This “propeller” style mounting design allows a user to chip wet or stringy wood types with less tendency of product twist or wrap. The rotor has four reversible chipper blades, made with tool steel, and a 4-sided adjustable anvil for perfectly sized chips for whatever use desired. 

The CH611DH now features a Digital Display Controller (DDC) hydraulic feed system with a variable speed feed roller with instant reverse.

The DDC features:

  • Movable Digital TFT screen for easy viewing, even in bright sunlight conditions
  • Soft key menu selection buttons for simple user navigation
  • Pre-programmed maintenance schedule reminders
  • Hydraulic system diagnostic capabilities
  • Troubleshooting screens to provide in-field help
  • Pre-programmed with English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Norwegian, Russian and Chinese
  • Tested in the most extreme conditions to ensure longevity

The chippers’ hydraulic feed system is electronically controlled. If the rotor speed drops below optimal operational RPM range, the controller pauses the feed roller to allow the rotor to regain speed, and then restarts feeding once optimal rotor RPM is achieved. This AutoFeed function allows for less fatigue on wear parts and maximizes efficiency.

The discharge chute extends to the end of the hitch for efficient loading and quickly rotates 360 degrees with ease. The CH611DH has a 6.5 x 13 inch wide-feed throat opening to facilitate larger brush or treetop clippings.

The ECHO Bear Cat CH611DH also features a telescopic tongue, triple-banded belt drive, torsion axle suspension and adjustable rear stabilizer. 

The CH611DH is a great fit for tree and landscape service operators as well as the perfect mid-size chipper for municipalities and rental companies.

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.
When should I chip?
If you don’t plan composting the material, material is green and stringy or larger than 3/4" in diameter.
