Three Reasons Why You Should Use a Chipper Shredder and Chipper Shredder Vac
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 is 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.
1. Time-saver: Not only do these tools help remove twigs and leaves from your yard, 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.
2. Mulch: Use the chipping functionality to turn twigs and small branches into fine wood chips for your own nutrient-rich mulch.
3. Compost: 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.
