Earthquake CS6V Petrol Chipper-Shredder (Second Hand)

Earthquake CS6V Petrol Chipper-Shredder (Second Hand) £499.00
The U.S.-built Earthquake CS6V features dedicated chipper and shredder mechanisms, and so provides the ideal all-in-one solution to the problem of large-scale garden-waste management. The chipper system comprises two chipping-knives that will turn even large-diameter branches (up to 50mm) into woodchips that can be spread around the base of plants for winter frost-protection. The unique design of the chipper-intake ensures branches are literally pulled into the cone, so you can be ready with the next one as quickly as possible. The shredding mechanism (for softer green waste) employs a series of free-swinging triangular hammers which ensure power is focused at the point of impact for outstanding mulching performance (the reduction ratio is an impressive 20:1). The hammers are reversible, so it will be a long time before they need to be sharpened. The Earthquake CS6V Petrol Chipper-Shredder is driven a very high-performance 6hp Viper engine, power from which is transferred via a perfectly balanced direct-drive rotor for less vibration and therefore reduced wear. It comes with a capacious 70-litre collection-bag, so you’ll be able to process plenty of material between each trip to the compost-pile; and it sits on a pair of large wheels that work with its low centre-of-gravity to make it stable, both when stationary, and when being towed. This already versatile machine can be made even more so with the purchase of the optional vac-kit.

Toro 20955 Petrol Recycler Lawn Mower (ADS)(Ex Demo 4 Hours Use)

Toro 20955 Petrol Recycler Lawn Mower (ADS)(Ex Demo 4 Hours Use) £349.00
The Toro 20955 Petrol Recycler Lawnmower is superbly well-built and offers numerous high-specification features, but comes-in at a surprisingly low price. Power comes from a very high-performance 190cc Briggs & Stratton Quantum 675-Series engine; a premium-quality air-cooled OHV engine that will prove exceptionally reliable and cheap to run. B & S’s Prime ‘n’ Pull starter system ensures the carburettor is primed with just the right amount of fuel for consistent first-pull starts. A versatile three-in-one machine, this model gives you the choice of collecting; mulching (recycling); or side-discharging grass-clippings. Unlike most multi-function mowers, no tools or mulch-plug are needed to switch modes – you just need to pull a lever. Equipped with a clipping-accelerator and a top-quality veneered blade, the Toro 20955 will lay down a classy finish on a fine lawn; but will also cut with ease through the sort of thick, tussocky grass found on less formal areas. A wide-ranging adjustable cutting-height (25 – 102mm) makes it possible to deal with a variety of grass conditions. Toro’s AutoMatic Drive System eliminates the need to push and automatically adjusts the mower’s ground-speed to match your walking pace (up to a speed of 4mph). Other stand-out features include a rugged steel deck, which confers impressive strength and durability; and a generously proportioned 60.5-litre grassbox, which means fewer trips to the compost-heap.

Mitox CS45 Petrol Chainsaw (Ex Demo 3 Hours Use)

Mitox CS45 Petrol Chainsaw (Ex Demo 3 Hours Use) £149.00
If you’re a fan of professional features and build-quality, but don’t want to pay professional prices, then this high-end domestic-use chainsaw from Mitox is well worth a look. Making it tick is an impressively beefy 2.4hp (45cc) two-stroke air-cooled engine, which develops enough power to enable you to deal with the most challenging wood-types. Mitox have provided a decompression-valve for low-effort pull-starts; and a Walbro carburettor and a Champion spark-plug for optimum combustion efficiency and reduced maintenance requirements. The Mitox CS45 Petrol Chainsaw uses a bar and chain combination from chainsaw performance-experts Oregon, so a smooth, clean cut is assured, even in knotty wood. It features a commercial-specification crankshaft, which works to minimise torque loss, while maximising engine life; and it offers automatic chain-oiling, so the cutting gear will keep on performing at its best for longer (you can adjust the oil flow-rate to suit the nature of the task in hand). With its crankcase made from magnesium alloy, the Mitox CS45 is around 30-percent lighter than similarly rated machines with a standard crankcase. This, along with anti-vibration measures and advanced ergonomics, make it one of the best handling saws in its class.
