Powerful Commercial Grade 9 Hp Engine
The Lawnflite Pro GTS900L Petrol Chipper-Shredder is powered by a Loncin G270 overhead valve engine. The 270 cc engine develops a powerful 9 hp which utilises the overhead valve technology for smooth running and economy.
There is a dual-stage air filter that protects the engine from dust and dirt. I cannot stress the importance of keeping your air filter clean as it is a must to not let dirt or dust into the engine. Failure to do this can end in engine failure or extreme and unnecessary wear on the engine.
The commercial Loncin engine is fitted with a cast-iron engine liner for longer life. And to protect the engine, there is an oil cut out alarm that turns the engine off should the engine run low on oil.
Easy-To-Use Chipper Shredder
The Lawnflite Pro GTS900L Petrol Chipper-Shredder is a very easy-to-use garden shredder and chipper. With a powerful engine, it quickly handles garden waste.
With its 9 hp engine, the chipper shredder can handle 8 cm (3.1 inch) diameter branches. Which for the majority of people anything larger would potentially be logged for the wood burner. Due to the design of the chipper branches should automatically pull themselves into the machine to enable you to fetch the next branch to chip.
A safety switch is on hand should you need to stop the machine quickly.
With a dual V belt system from the engine to the blades, the chipper loses minimum power to the transmission drive. Drive belts also act as a safety measure should anything jam the machine. The belts will slip rather than forcing the engine to stop abruptly, therefore protecting the engine.
One of the best things about a petrol chipper shredder is the fact that the machine can be moved around easily. The 400 mm pneumatic transport wheels allow the machine to be moved around easily. I always believe that it is much easier to take the machine to the job rather than taking the material to the job. In this way, there is much less handling and obviously, with the petrol machine, there is no electric lead to contend with.
Over the past few days, we’ve looked at various wood chippers and shredders. The first ones being budget, value for money models. The Lawnflite Pro GTS900L Petrol Chipper-Shredder is going slightly upmarket and approaching the semiprofessional and keen gardener range. However, there is a higher price tag. I always tell potential customers to purchase the best machine that they can afford. It’s important to have a machine that is long-lasting and give you many years of trouble-free service.
The chipper shred comes with a peace of mind two year warranty.
