Fall is finally here, which means it’s time to clean up leaves and branches to keep your property tidy and prevent issues with drainage and sun exposure that can damage your lawn. Bagging is time-consuming and leaves massive bags of leaves that are expensive to clean up, but with Cub Cadet’s chipper/shredders, you can get the job done quickly while turning piles of debris into compact, nutrient-rich mulch.
Fall lawn cleanup involves picking up leaves and chopping up fallen limbs, so why not get a machine that does both? Cub Cadet’s vacuums can pick up leaves using either the 24-inch vacuum head for open lawns or a built-in 7-foot hose that’s great for reaching around bushes and other landscape features to pick up hard-to-reach leaves.
Under ideal conditions, the 13.5 inch cast aluminum impeller can chop up leaves, compacting them up to one eighth their original size. The chute next to the engine leads to a set of 6 cast steel flails that can cut limbs up to 1.5 inches thick. The resulting mulch is collected in a two-bushel felt-lined bag.
Cub Cadet offers two models: the CSV 050 is a push vacuum, while the CSV 070 comes with a self-propulsion system. Both come with a 159 cc engine designed and built for Cub Cadet specifically for their equipment, and they ride on ball-bearing mounted wheels, making them easy to roll.
Vertical Chipper Shredders
For big jobs, these chipper shredders come with powerful engines and cutting heads. Small materials can be dumped into the hopper, while the chute leads to a set of flails that can handle thick branches. Unlike most models on the market, these shredders have a bagging system just like the vacuums, making it easier to dispose of debris. The included felt bag can hold up to 5 bushels.
Between the 12-inch shredding blade at the bottom of the hopper and the 12 cast steel flails at the end of the chute, these machines can reduce organic material up to 10:1. The built-in tow bar has a pin hitch so the chipper shredder can be moved using your riding lawn mower.
Cub Cadet offers two vertical chipper shredder models. The CS 2210 is powered by a 208cc Cub Cadet engine and can handle wood up to two inches in diameter. The CS 3310 replaces the Cub Cadet engine with a 250cc Briggs & Stratton 1150. This gives it the power to cut through branches and trunks up to three inches in diameter.
All four models of chipper shredders are guaranteed by Cub Cadet for three years of residential use. Cub Cadet offers the same warranty for their engines, while Briggs & Stratton guarantees the 1150 for 24 months of consumer use or 90 days of commercial use.
