Chips: If you are considering buying a chipper and you are
in the tree service business a chipper should make the difference
between time wasted and time saved or profit and loss.
Most tree service companies understand this but still go out and
buy fancy pickups and try to save money on the chipper. I suggest
you get the best chipper for the type of work you do and the fancy
pickup should look after it's self.
For a landscaper that does lots of pruning I like the Carlton
Model 1260 with either a Vanguard 35 HP V-Twin or Hatz
35 hp engine. The
Model 1260 has
a 12" wide opening so it can take up
to 6" dia. limbs or tops even with the limbs on and with over
30 hp it has lots of snort to put it into your truck in short
The Model 1260 is also easy to get around.
For a tree service that needs a bigger chipper but still compact
a Carlton Model 1790 with
engine options from 50hp to 100hp will work well. Again,
you have many choices so you should consult with your dealer
ask Mr Chips which will be best tool for your application.
For the tree service company that wants the ultimate all round
chipper the Carlton Model 2512 has
always been the champ. These
larger chippers can be equipped with engine options 80hp to 140hp.
There is no substitute for the right tool for the job. Northland
find that tool.
