This seriously powerful chipper-shredder from Lawnflite-Pro is the US brand’s top-of-the-range GTS-Series machine, and as such is aimed at the semi-pro and high-end homeowner markets. Making it tick is a very high-performance 12hp (420cc) Loncin G420 overhead-valve power-pack that’s characterised by its impressive efficiency, low running temperature and superior dependability. A semi-dry dual-element air-filter provides comprehensive component protection for reduced wear and tear; while a ‘low oil’ alert and shut-down system ensures the engine won’t be damaged if you’ve unwittingly let the oil level get too low. The Lawnflite-Pro GTS1300L Petrol Chipper-Shredder employs dual drum-mounted blades that will have no trouble pulverising branches up to 100mm in diameter, reducing them to woodchips that will prove useful around the garden. It offers automatic feed-in, so you get the next branch ready rather than standing over the machine; and it features an automatic emergency cut-out system that delivers optimum operator safety. So as to facilitate hassle-free site-to-site movement, Lawnflite-Pro have equipped this model with a set of large diameter wheels and an ergonomic transport handle. Tow-hitch and swivel-chute offered as optional accessories.
