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.

Can I operate the Wheeled Trimmer on a hillside?
The ECHO Bear Cat Wheeled Trimmer is capable of continuous operation on a slope not to exceed 15 degrees. Limited operation on slopes greater than 15 degrees is allowed.

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 do I change the trimming line?
Change the line by folding a 20" piece of cutting string in half. Insert the piece into the slot of trimmer head disk until the bend in the string is past the line holder tab. Pull the string underneath the tab until secured in place. It may be necessary to be removed pieces of broken worn string before new string can be properly installed.

The plastic trimmer blades outperform any trimming line. However, saplings or hard objects will reduce their life.
