Amazing Machine!

The SC3265 chipper/shredder is easy to use and move around to the brush that you are chipping. It does not take up a lot of space in the garage. Great tool for chipping up limbs into mulch!

How long will the chipper blades last on my chipper/shredder?
Depending on the type of wood, age and cleanliness, chipper blades will work well for between five and ten hours. Dry, dirty wood will dull the blades faster.
What are the chipper/shredders designed for?
The ECHO Bear Cat chipper/shredders are designed to effectively reduce the volume of wood, leaves, and other organic material
What is the maximum size of material will these machines chip or shred?
The ECHO Bear Cat 2" chipper/shredder will chip up to 2"and shred up to 3/4" diameter material. The ECHO Bear Cat 3" chipper/shredders will chip up to 3" and shred up to 3/4" diameter material. The ECHO Bear Cat 5" chipper/shredder will chip up to 5" and shred up to 3/4" diameter material.
When should I chip?
If you don’t plan composting the material, material is green and stringy or larger than 3/4" in diameter.
When should I shred?
If you plan on composting or if the material is smaller than 3/4", use the shredder. Shredding is also an efficient way to reduce the volume of leaves or prunings.
