No matter the region, winter weather can leave your lawn with a combination of fallen branches, leaves, and other debris. A chipper shredder ;or a chipper shredder vacuum is a great solution to help clean up and revive your yard.
The purpose and benefit of these tools are to make it easy to dispose of yard debris like leaves, small branches, and twigs, which can also be used for other lawn needs. However, unlike a chipper shredder, a chipper shredder vacuum has the maneuverability of a walk-behind mower, letting you get to those hard-to-reach areas with a vacuum hose.
In addition to their basic functionalities, here are three other reasons why you should use a chipper shredder or chipper shredder vacuum.
Not only do these tools help remove twigs and leaves from your yard, but they also can transform 10 bags of debris into one for an easy cleanup process. This will help you cut down on time and space.
Use the chipping functionality to turn twigs and small branches into fine wood chips for your own nutrient-rich mulch.
The shredding component of chipper shredders and chipper shredder vacuums provides the option to compost leaves and plants in a timely manner. Rather than taking a few months for elements to decompose, the decomposition process is sped up because more surface area is exposed with smaller pieces.
Scythe mowers, sometimes known as sickle bar mowers, are ideal for cutting down long grass and overgrown areas. Traditionally, scythe mowers were used by smallholders to make small amounts of hay.
Sickle bar mowers will tackle long grass in paddocks, orchards, and around buildings with ease. The large reciprocating blade will quickly cut through brambles, nettles, and tough grass with ease.
One of the advantages of a scythe mower is the fact that it takes very little power to drive the cutter bar. With a rotary mower, you are dealing with a lot of grass going through the machine which tends to put the engine under load. With a scythe mower, the machine has almost a scissor-type cutting action, which cuts the grass effortlessly and cleanly.
Machine sizes vary from 24-inch cut models to the larger 48-inch models. We have a selection of machines from budget machines to machines for the contractor and keen gardener. Scythe mowers have come a long way since the old Allen scythes and Mayfield scythe mowers. I think many people have the experience to share regarding their old Allen scythe and the temperamental clutch!
