Tips for Using Petrol Shredders and Wood Chippers

There are limitless advantages to owning a petrol shredder or wood chipper. Wood chippers are used to reduce brush, brambles and large branches into small chips for recycling and reducing waste debris to easily manageable and transportable sizes, save you the cost of professional removal.

Recycling properties

Wood chippers can also be used to make mulch that can be matured over time or added to compost. Shreds and chips have insulating properties, perfect for plants. Alternatively, wood chips can be used along pathways for an attractive and inexpensive alternative to paving or gravel.

Shred verses chip. 

When using petrol shredders, it is a good idea to chop and change between tough products and softer green waste to avoid clogging.


If you have a smaller area of land in a built up environment, be sure to ask our technical team of expert staff to help select the right chippers and shredders suitable for your environment.
