FAQFrequently Asked Questions

What is this machine designed for?

* The ECHO Bear Cat chipper is designed to effectively eliminate wood, brush, and other organic
material while using your skid steer as the power unit.

When should I rent instead of buying a chipper?

* Rent the machine if you have a very limited or unique job.

What is the capacity and hydraulic flow requirements of these machines?

* The CH500H is capable of continuously feeding 3" branches and requires at least 15 gallons
per minute (GPM). The CH800H is capable of continuously feeding 5" branches and requires
at least 25 GPM on a hi-flow skid steer.

Will the chipper fit my skid steer?

* The ECHO Bear Cat skid steer chipper is equipped with universal attachment ends, capable
of hooking up to most skid steers.

When should I buy a hydraulic feed machine?

* If you have a large, consistent job to do, a hydraulic feed machine will provide better performance
and greater productivity.

How long will the chipper blades last?

* Depending on the type of wood, age and cleanliness, chipper blades will work well for between
five and ten hours. Dry, dirty wood will dull the blades faster. Hydraulic feed machines
will have better blade life.

How difficult is it to perform maintenance on the machine?

* Proper maintenance is vital. Routine maintenance, including chipper blades, will normally
take only 10 minutes.
