For the past week I have been trying to research wood chipper/shredders. I don't need it for tree work, but I do the occasional fence line clearing, hauling off branches from customers yards, shrub trimming, etc. So the 3" will be the max. My price range is $2,000 or less. Here are my options: Mackissic Mighty mac (around $800) with 205cc I believe. The Craftsman 305cc (which is the only one that I can find with several reviews; which are good) the price is same as mighty mac. The Echo Bear Cat Several different models, but the one I had in mind is the SC3342 with 342cc which costs around $2,000. I won't be making a whole lot of money off of the machine, but I want something for convenience. Any suggestions for another machine, or comments on the ones mentioned will be greatly appreciated.
