Works Effortlessly!

The ECHO Bear Cat SC3265 is forgiving, even when some things are done "wrong" (e.g., stuffing too many dried leaves in to the chute instead of letting them self-feed). It effectively chipped and shredded everything effortlessly - freshly pulled weeds, dry and wet leaves, dry and wet branches of all sizes up to 3" diameter (plus a little), and old lumber (1x1, 2x2). We talked with a local dealer who says she has sold several SC3265 ECHO Bear Cat models, and has had no complaints or returns.

The ECHO Bear Cat CH500H chipper is driven by the hydraulic system of the skid or track steer loader it's mounted to. The CH500H requires 15-22 gpm flow to drive the hydraulic feed roller and chipping rotor. At 22 gpm flow, the 140 lb. rotor turns at 4,000 rpm. 

The CH500H chipper features two, universal attachment plate positions so the user can feed the chipper from the side or front, depending on what the operator needs or the situation dictates. The 360 degree rotating discharge tube with deflector cap allows placement of chips where ever they need to go.

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 skid steer chippers designed for?
The ECHO Bear Cat chipper is designed to effectively eliminate wood, brush, and other organic material while using your skid steer as the power unit.
What is the capacity and hydraulic flow requirements of the skid steer chipper?
The CH450H has a maximum capacity of 4.5"and requires at least 11 to 15 gpm on a mini skid steer. The CH500H has a maximum capacity of 5"and requires at least 15 to 22 gpm on a low-flow skid steer. The CH800H has a maximum capacity of 8" and requires at least 25 to 38 gpm on a hi-flow skid steer.
Will the chipper fit my skid steer?
The ECHO Bear Cat CH500H and CH800H skid steer chippers are equipped with universal attachment ends, capable of hooking up to most skid steers. The CH450H is designed to mount to mini skid steers.
