The new Eliet Maestro City shredder is a rugged and efficient solution for chipping materials up to 40mm in diameter and replaces the Primo model.
Eliet shredders benefit from their refined Chopping Principle which exposes the natural weakness of the wood’s grain. With 36,000 cuts made per minute, the resulting ‘Biotech Chips’ are uniform in size, and are perfect for composting. The resulting airy mixture will have just the right amount of moisture to aid mulching or composting.
The Maestro City is fitted with a compact 60 litre collection bag which conveniently connects to the frame using magnetic contacts. The chippings will be efficiently collected into the bag so other than emptying this, there is no mess to clear up after operation. The chippings can be used as a boost for your compost heap, or be spread underneath your border plants as a fertile mulch layer.
A large amount of power is needed to efficiently chop the wood into the tidy Biotech chips (this particular model features a 160cc Briggs & Stratton XR 750 engine), and therefore the Eliet Maestro City has been designed with a robust frame. The shredding chamber and feed hopper are made of steel, and are welded firmly to the frame itself.
With all the power, you will be surprised by the sound levels produced by the Eliet Maestro (or lack there of). Eliet have worked hard to create machines which don’t cause too much noise pollution. Sound insulation in the funnel will help to soften the drumming sounds which the chipping action produces.
Other useful features which the Eliet Maestro City shredder benefits from are a wide funnel opening. With some shredders you will find yourself waiting to be able to load the next branch, but this model cuts so quickly, and the opening is so large that you’ll struggle to keep up with the machine’s efficiency. The funnel can be removed and the handles are designed for ease of use, so you’ll find storing and transporting the Maestro is a breeze. The rubber feet on the shredder provide excellent stability during use which is an important safety feature.
