Testimonials

Perfect fit for my yard size!

The model SC3206 3-inch is great around a small to medium yard. The amount of mulch that I got from my yard work was more then needed and have shared with my nieghbors. It's great in helping in reducing my cost for mulch and water cost. In my small yard, the best feature is it's size. I can store it with taking to much space and ease to roll around to the work area.

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?
