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.

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.

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.
