This chipper/spreader can do most of the job for you however it is not designed for stumps since it can only accept branches which are no more than 2 7/8ths inches thick. This is a chipper/shredder so you have to feed the brush and branches into the chute.

Get the 4 wheel unit and tow behind the garden/lawn tractor. No good for stumps. Fine for limbs and brush. Not the greatest for leaves. 5 acres will be giving you quite the workout, I have 3 acres and it kicks my butt after a few hours. There is always tomorrow for the next sector.

Question

Can an electric starter be added to LSC1100?

I bought this shredder and I love it. Unfortunately I discovered that I don't have the strength to start it myself. Need to know if an electric starter can be added so I'm free to use when I want to use it. Thanks..

Can the Merry Mac LSC1100M Chipper/Shredder be hooked up to a tractor or UTV and towed?  I have hilly terrain to clear and would rather not have to pull it up and down the hill if I don't have to.

Staff Answer
The Merry Mac Chipper/Shredder has a large screen and would shred material down to only about 1/2"(13mm) at the smallest. Northern Tool does sell a Merry Mac Chipper/Shredder that would have an optional 1/4"(6mm) bar screen for smaller chips. Contact our replacement parts department at 1-800-222-5381 for availability and pricing on optional screens. See link below.

Question

Can I move this machine by hand?

I do not have an ATV or tractor - can this unit be moved by hand? If so, with what degree of difficulty? (Rate the difficulty: 0 = no difficulty for one person, 5 = impossible for one person).

The Merry Mac Chipper/Shredder is designed to be moved by hand. I would rate it a 2 on a scale of 0-5. While it is somewhat heavy(160lbs), it does have large pneumatic tires that support most the weight. Most people should have little trouble moving the unit about.

answer 2
Yes, it can be pulled by hand. I would estimate the effort to be equivalent to about twice as hard as pulling an average push mower - or stacking one mower on top of the other and pulling both at the same time. Unless I was moving it a long distance (more than 100 yds) I would probably elect to pull it by hand as opposed to taking the time to get my tractor out and hook it up.
