Bearcat SC3420 Chipper Shredder Features

Bearcat SC3420 Chipper Powered by the Briggs & Stratton 420cc OHV engine, the SC3420 turns your tree and yard debris into a landscaping asset full of nutrients. The Briggs motor spins the 27 lb. rotor up to 3,600 rpm, hence spinning the chipping blades and shredding knives. Two reversible chipping blades take care of the heavy work, while twelve reversible shredding knives obliterate the smaller stuff.  Both, the chipping blades and the shredding knives are heat treated for strength and durability.  Furthermore, the Bearcat SC3420 shredding knives use a serrated edge and staggered pattern for more efficient processing and better performance.

The Bearcat SC3420 chipper shredder has Changeable discharge screens that allow the operator to control the size of the end product. These changeable screens are also available on all ECHO Bearcat chipper shredders. Lastly, a large handle spanning the full width of the Bearcat SC3420 chipper and two pneumatic tires allow simple mobility around any property.

The ECHO Bearcat SC3420 Chipper Shredder sells for a little less than $2,000. ECHO Bearcat also has a full line of chipper shredders that will fit your needs. Click the link for more information on the Bearcat SC3420 Chipper or other ECHO Bearcat products.

Love my Bearcat! Great machines. Be sure to run green material regularly and avoid though old spruce trees through the unit as hard on the blade, otherwise was a great purchase. The mulch will help to retain moisture around our acreage trees, during dry season.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
