Excellent well designed powerful machine
I have had a C13 for my small acreage property for around four years. When it first arrived I had a pile of branches 12m x2m x1.5m high which I expected to take take 2 hours to mulch. It took 25 minutes. The great thing is you don't need to spend much time trimming branches, you just feed in the lot. I have fed in whole palm trunks up to 100mm dia. The Honda GX390 engine is superb. It usually starts first pull, never more than two, generally because it wasn't switched it on. This is a well designed and built robust machine which should last for years. Buy a pair of very long handled pliers for regular removal of fibrous material from flywheel shaft.
Purchased for A$5,600.00.

Well built, hard working garden chipper
Bought chipper to clean up some overgrown bushland and maintain it.
Very happy with the build quality, ease of use and performance of the Hansa C13. We have removed more than 30 weed trees (Privet and Camphor Laural) to 8m, chipped about 20 unfortunately placed native hardwood trees to 25m (chipping everything but the trunk and heavy branches) and countless shrubs. Surprising how it can turn a huge pile of cuttings into a small pile of chips.
The machine has a big chute and the design of the blades drags in branches and vines. When you get used to the way the machine feeds, it is possible to cut the branches to suit, minimising the cutting and feed work.

Looking for a local dealer in Adelaide
Can you point me in the right direction
Just searched online then rang around and got prices - bought mine one from a big garden equipment supplier (in Sydney).
