Petrol Chipper and Shredder Combos
When you do a lot of yard work or you own a landscaping business, you need a versatile and durable shredder and chipper to help streamline your work. You may not be in the business of cutting down trees but if you have a lot of debris from branches and trees in your yard then having an adequate machine helps minimise the work you have to hire others for. There are a few reasons to opt for a combo machine and there are several different types available for purchase.Combo Benefits
If your only task is to cut down and minimise branches in your yard, you may want to opt for a single wood chipper. One of the benefits of opting for a combo machine is the fact that you can also get rid of leaves, sticks and other detritus in your yard. If you clean up your yard and find that you may have six to seven bags of debris, the combo machines can turn that into less than one bag. Simply put all of the debris into the combination machine and it will shred it down to a manageable level.Universal Features
Most of the combo machines feature pneumatic wheels so they’re easy to push around the yard. Also, many users report that these machines are quite noisy so if this is a concern, you may want to opt for a machine that advertises noise reduction. The majority of these machines also come with a bag attachment so you don’t have to hand-sift to separate the debris. When it comes to sizing, consider the size of the machine how you would with your other outdoor power equipment. Bigger isn’t always better and if you have a small yard, a handheld but heavy-duty combo shredder should do the trick.Replacement Parts
In addition to the machines themselves, many chippers, shredders and mulchers also offer replacement parts, so you can keep your machine up and running all year round and through all types of weather. Look for brand-specific blades, bolts and attachment pieces to fix your machine yourself should it be in disrepair.Brand Options
When it comes to these combo machines, there are many different brand options. Honda is certainly a familiar and trusted brand. Other well-made and well-reviewed brands include Viper, Briggs and Stratton, Greatull, John Deere and Parklander.
