Lawnflite Pro-GTS600L Petrol Chipper-Shredder – Engine
This garden Chipper is powered by a high-performance petrol Loncin G160 engine. This 163cc overhead valve four-stroke petrol engine produces a powerful 5.5 hp, it’s a low emission engine and exceptionally economical to run.
There is a low oil alarm system that will cut out the engine should it run low on oil. I always recommend checking the oil on an engine before you start using it, especially if it hasn’t been running for some time. It is also a very good practice to keep the oil clean and change on a regular basis. If the manufacturer recommends changing the oil at 100 hours, I normally cut this in half and change the oil at 50 hours. I always think it’s much cheaper to change the oil wear engine parts!
As always refer to the engine manual to check the service schedule.
Loncin engines were originally established in 1993 as a motorcycle manufacturer. In 2005 they became a collaborator partner of BMW. The company now has a portfolio of high quality, reliable products, including generators, engines, water pumps, motorcycles and more.
The Loncin engine has a cast-iron cylinder sleeve and a dual-stage air filter, both these features help to prolong the life of the engine.
Just a word of warning with the air filters, make sure you clean the air filters regularly, especially if you are using your chipper in dusty conditions. It’s far better to spend time looking after your chipper on a regular basis rather than having problems later on in life, due to poor maintenance.
Drum Mounted Blades
With the drum mounted Blades, the Lawnflite Pro-GTS600L Petrol Chipper-Shredder will quickly mince up branches up to 50 mm in diameter. The great thing is that you can use the chippings on your garden as a mulch or even compost them to use at a later date.
The petrol chipper has the capability to draw the wood into the feed which makes it fairly effortless to use. There is an emergency safety stop button that can be used, just in case of emergency and for peace of mind.
The chipper is highly manoeuvrable as it comes with transport wheels and a transport handle to move around the garden and out of storage.
