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.

This machine does not cut grass. It is made to "mulch" yard waste (sticks leaves etc).

answer 2
This is not a grass cutter, but it can mulch ( grind up grass) If your Dad wants to reduce size of grass clippings this can do so. Not really designed for this purpose.

Never tried it, but suspect that grass (especially wet grass) would not feed through the screen very well and tend to clog it up.
