This compact chipper shredder from Mighty Mac stores in an area of only two feet square, but don't let its size fool you! The SC800EX handles tough clean-up operations including fallen branches, leaves, prunings and garden debris and is certain to meet your needs and exceed your expectations.
At the heart of the Mighty Mac SC800EX is the shredding chamber, or hammermill. The hammermill houses 16 free-swinging hammers which shred, tear, beat and grind the material until it is small enough to pass through the screen at the adjustable discharge end of the machine. These heat-treated and hardened hammers are blunt for longer life (serrated or sharpened hammers dull up to 20 times faster) and generate 44,304 hits per minute. The design of Mighty Mac's four cutting corners of each hammer will provide years of life before replacement is necessary. In addition, the machine has a chipping capacity of small branches up to 50mm (2") in diameter at a rate of 2769 hits per minute.
The key to successful shredding and chipping is the energy created by the weight of the flywheel and rotor tuning at up to 2800 revolutions per minute. Mighty Mac's flywheel and rotor combination on this model weighs 24lbs.
Another outstanding feature of the Mighty Mac SC800EX chipper shredder is the centrifugal clutch. This is designed for easy no-load starting while offering operator and engine protection not available with a direct drive machine. The clutch will also disengage if the machine is overloaded to allow the engine, flywheel and rotor rpms to recover quickly to full speed.
Powered by a 205cc Briggs & Stratton OHV engine and fitted with 4" pneumatic wheels for easy movement, the Mighty Mac SC800EX is the perfect tool for the homeowner and gardener with a variety of materials to shred and chip.
