With Winter approaching it’s end and Spring on the horizon do you suddenly feel a new headache coming on? No doubt the the fallen trees and bulky branches in your yard can prove to be a menace as the snow begins to quickly melt. Like most people you’ve probably wasted ample time on such yard cleanups and found clearing up this debris to be extremely strenuous and time-consuming.
Fortunately modern tech has provided you with a solution that works like magic and isn’t too hard on the wallet! Yes, of course we’re talking about wood chippers, the GTS-1500 Wood Chipper in particular!
Having stood the test of time, this is one of the best mobile wood chippers in town, and it can process large wooden branches into smaller chips that you can clean up easily. Thanks to it’s portability, the GTS-1500’s automation, work system, and easy handling makes it so quick and coherent to operate that it seems like child’s play.
So, without further ado, let’s review this technological marvel from all aspects to help you decide if it’s ideal for you!
GTS-1500 Wood Chipper is a well-equipped machine having an adjustable trailer hitch and support leg, which make it perfectly eligible to use in professional applications instead of any tractor or heavy current-voltage equipment.
For example, the capacity of work of Jansen GTS-1500 and it’s successor the updated Victory Tractor MDWC-1500 Wood Chipper compete head-on with highly efficient heavy equipment because of it’s simple, yet effective design.
On top of that, the GTS-1500 is not just an ugly piece of equipment. It comes in vibrant colors that are pleasing to the eye. So, if you’re someone who prefers having equipment that is as classy as it is functional, the GTS-1500 is right up your alley!
The GTS-1500 Wood Chipper is equipped with a roller with which two movable blades are calibrated. Both of the blades are attached to one counter blade.
To make it simple there’s rapid and continuous movement of the blades (also referred to as knives) in the opposite direction to that of the attached counter blade. This mechanism allows the chipper to shred giant logs of wood into tiny pieces (also called chips).
The time duration of the operation depends entirely upon the diameter and the length of the wooden log.
For reference, this machine can chip a 200 lbs wooden log having a diameter of 4-inches in the short duration of just 24 hours!
