Lawnflite Pro GTS1300G Petrol Chipper-Shredder £2549.00
This seriously powerful chipper-shredder from Lawnflite Pro is the UK brand’s top-of-the-range GTS-Series machine, and as such is aimed at the semi-pro and high-end homeowner markets.Making it tick is a very high-performance 12hp (420cc) Loncin G420 overhead-valve power-pack that’s characterised by its impressive efficiency; low running temperature; and superior dependability.A semi-dry dual-element air-filter provides comprehensive component protection for reduced wear and tear; while a ‘low oil’ alert and shut-down system ensures the engine won’t be damaged if you’ve unwittingly let the oil level get too low.The Lawnflite Pro GTS1300G Petrol Chipper-Shredder employs dual drum-mounted blades that will have no trouble pulverising branches up to 85mm in diameter, reducing them to woodchips that will prove useful around the garden.It offers automatic feed-in, so you get the next branch ready rather than standing over the machine; and it features an automatic emergency cut-out system that delivers optimum operator safety. So as to facilitate hassle-free site-to-site movement, Lawnflite have equipped this model with a set of large diameter wheels and an ergonomic transport handle.

Process large volumes of both green and woody garden-waste in quick time with the powerful and easy-to-use Lawnflite Pro GTS900G Petrol Chipper-Shredder.At its heart is a Loncin G270 engine (270cc) that develops a substantial 9hp; and which utilises overhead-valve technology for a significant cut in noise; vibration; fuel costs; and operating temperature. A dual-stage air-filter and a cast-iron cylinder sleeve combine to maximise both reliability and durability; while a low-oil alarm and cut-out system ensure there’s no chance of engine-damage occurring when oil-levels are low.Thanks to its powerful engine and unforgiving drum-and-blade chipping system, the Lawnflite Pro GTS900G can handle branches up to 80mm in diameter without fuss.An emergency-stop system brings piece-of-mind when it comes to user-safety; while automatic in-draw means you can prepare the next branch, rather than overseeing the feed.
