Would be interested in hearing from forumites on the best deal in garden chipper/shredders.

After a few months of research Ive narrowed the choice down to the Masport machine with 6.5 HP Briggs and Stratten engine or the Rover Chip 'n Shred with the 5.5 HP B and S engine. The local supplier (deals in both machines) reckons the newest Masports are a bit better than the Rovers. Price on the Masport is $1500 while price on the Rover is about $1700.

Any comments would be welcome.

Cheers Martin
