As part of an exclusive deal with Henton & Chattell, Hansa Chippers are now available in the UK for the first time.
Established in the 1980s, Hansa specialises in the design and manufacture of high-quality brush chipping and shredding equipment.
The family run company, based in New Zealand, has a strong heritage combined with constant evolution and innovation - taking on customer feedback when designing new products so that each generation adds something new.
Hansa prides itself on the ethos of “providing the best chipping experience”. Whether being used in a garden at home, by a landscaper, professional arborist or other commercial user, Hansa chippers are all designed to make tough work enjoyable. It’s not just about getting the job done, but the experience of doing it well, and doing it better – using less time, less people, and having less down-time to make the whole process more efficient.
Products are made using the latest manufacturing technology such as 3D design, CNC machining, folding and laser cutting to ensure a high-quality finish that delivers durability, efficiency and a solid build.
Discussing the new acquisition, Peter Chaloner, managing director of Henton & Chattell, commented: “As ever, we’ve used our unique insight that we’ve gained from our extensive network of dealers across the country to find out what the demand is. Hansa products absolutely fit the bill for what people are looking for. We believe there is nothing else on the UK market that is this powerful and efficient, and the feedback we gained when we have introduced and demonstrated them to dealers backs that up”.
The chippers are built to be as efficient as possible, using less fuel, top quality motors and finished with a non-toxic surface, allowing users to re-use woodchip to enhance the environment too. They feature quality engines, are easy to start and have a wide feed for large debris. They are also compact and manoeuvrable, with a low weight to capacity ratio that gives them balance for ease of use and transportation.
The domestic gardener can choose between electric and petrol options with the C3E and the C4, both weighing up 70kg so are perfect for home usage and storage. The C7 is the most popular model and, with a 6.5hp petrol engine, is ideal for those with larger gardens. For landscapers the C13, with a 13hp engine, easy engagement system and efficient self-feeding action, removes all the hard work.
For large-scale, commercial applications there is the C21 and the C27. Both are extremely robust and have heavy-duty cutting disks that meet the rigorous requirements of heavy branches and bushy foliage. The C27 has a 360-degree turntable that allows feeding from any direction.
