No matter the region, winter weather can leave your lawn with a combination of fallen branches, leaves, and other debris. A chipper shredder ;or a chipper shredder vacuum is a great solution to help clean up and revive your yard.
The purpose and benefit of these tools are to make it easy to dispose of yard debris like leaves, small branches, and twigs, which can also be used for other lawn needs. However, unlike a chipper shredder, a chipper shredder vacuum has the maneuverability of a walk-behind mower, letting you get to those hard-to-reach areas with a vacuum hose.
In addition to their basic functionalities, here are three other reasons why you should use a chipper shredder or chipper shredder vacuum.
Not only do these tools help remove twigs and leaves from your yard, but they also can transform 10 bags of debris into one for an easy cleanup process. This will help you cut down on time and space.
Use the chipping functionality to turn twigs and small branches into fine wood chips for your own nutrient-rich mulch.
The shredding component of chipper shredders and chipper shredder vacuums provides the option to compost leaves and plants in a timely manner. Rather than taking a few months for elements to decompose, the decomposition process is sped up because more surface area is exposed with smaller pieces.
Scythe mowers, sometimes known as sickle bar mowers, are ideal for cutting down long grass and overgrown areas. Traditionally, scythe mowers were used by smallholders to make small amounts of hay.
Sickle bar mowers will tackle long grass in paddocks, orchards, and around buildings with ease. The large reciprocating blade will quickly cut through brambles, nettles, and tough grass with ease.
One of the advantages of a scythe mower is the fact that it takes very little power to drive the cutter bar. With a rotary mower, you are dealing with a lot of grass going through the machine which tends to put the engine under load. With a scythe mower, the machine has almost a scissor-type cutting action, which cuts the grass effortlessly and cleanly.
Machine sizes vary from 24-inch cut models to the larger 48-inch models. We have a selection of machines from budget machines to machines for the contractor and keen gardener. Scythe mowers have come a long way since the old Allen scythes and Mayfield scythe mowers. I think many people have the experience to share regarding their old Allen scythe and the temperamental clutch!
Multi-function Lawn Mower
Multi-function Lawn Mower (also known as a mower, grass cutter, or lawnmower) is a machine utilizing one or more revolving blades to cut a grass surface to an even height. The height of the cut grass may be fixed by the design of the mower, but generally is adjustable by the operator, typically by a single master lever, or by a lever or nut and bolt on each of the machine's wheels. The blades may be powered by manual force, with wheels mechanically connected to the cutting blades so that when the mower is pushed forward, the blades spin, or the machine may have a battery-powered or plug-in electric motor. The most common self-contained power source for lawn mowers is a small (typically one cylinder) internal combustion engine. ;
Two main styles of blades are used in Multi-function Lawn Mowers. Lawnmowers employing a single blade that rotates about a single vertical axis are known as rotary mowers, while those employing a cutting bar and multiple blade assembly that rotates about a single horizontal axis are known as cylinder or reel mowers (although in some versions, the cutting bar is the only blade, and the rotating assembly consists of flat metal pieces which force the blades of grass against the sharp cutting bar).
There are several types of mowers, each suited to a particular scale and purpose. The smallest types, non-powered push mowers, are suitable for small residential lawns and gardens. Electrical or piston engine-powered push-mowers are used for larger residential lawns (although there is some overlap). Riding mowers, which sometimes resemble small tractors, are larger than push mowers and are suitable for large lawns, although commercial riding lawn mowers (such as zero-turn mowers) can be "stand-on" types, and often bear little resemblance to residential lawn tractors, being designed to mow large areas at high speed in the shortest time possible. The largest multi-gang (multi-blade) mowers are mounted on tractors and are designed for large expanses of grass such as golf courses and municipal parks, although they are ill-suited for complex terrain.
