Grounds staff at Cammeray Golf Club in Sydney turned a large pile of dead tree branches into mulch within a few hours with the help of a 220mm (9in) chipper, hired from Kennards Groundcare Hire .
The chipper, which has a 55hp water-cooled diesel engine and a patented disc-cutting system, can process up to seven tonne of green waste per hour. For smaller jobs, Kennards can supply 100mm (4 inch) chippers. These Australian-made, 14hp, trailer-mounted machines have excellent throughput, outstanding reliability and appealing safety features.
“We do this job about every six months and always use the same machine,” said course superintendent, Matt Crowe. “It’s fast, safe and so reliable – it never gives us trouble.”
