Long Lasting!

Without my old ECHO Bear Cat I wouldn't be anywhere near as far along in our weed-whacking (we live in a high fire danger zone). Both the wheels on my new DR have failed and the mow ball (plastic) didn't last more than 20 hours before being worn out. Your new thick steel mow ball is the only thing that makes sense if you have land with a lot of rocks - it will outlast me probably. The 3-speed trans have never skipped a beat while my DR only has one speed. The ECHO Bear Cat wheels are still working fine. The ECHO Bear Cat wheels  are larger which makes it easier to go over bumps, ect. As of now, it looks like buying the DR was a mistake.

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.
