They say things come in threes and for Greg Tucker, Owner of GT Tree Services, the new EVO 165P Sub-750 from GreenMech ticked three major boxes when it came to looking for a new chipper – lightweight, petrol-engined and powerful performance.
Since taking delivery in September 2020, Greg has been nothing but impressed with the EVO’s assured handling of a variety of woody waste, together with the excellent back-up support from the GreenMech dealer network.
After a number of years spent in the arboricultural industry, Greg established GT Tree Services in 2016 and along with his team undertakes mainly domestic works in and around Bath and the Southern Cotswolds. “I was looking to replace my existing machine and compared a number of different brands all using the 37hp Briggs & Stratton engine” explains Greg. “Ashley Stevens at GA Groundcare brought in the new EVO 165P Sub-750 and, having used GreenMech machines in the past, what struck me instantly was the detail and thought that has gone into every element of the EVO – the build quality and design is next level.”
“In particular, the fact there’s no plastic panelling or bodywork gives me peace of mind when it comes to the unit’s durability. With this machine we’ve got the strength we need in a sub-750kg package which means all of my team can tow it and, when it’s on site, it is lightweight and easy to manoeuvre in and around small gardens and restricted access locations.”
The EVO 165P Sub-750 retains many of the key features of the EVO series including a wide infeed chute, twin horizontal rollers and heavy-duty flywheel providing unparalleled processing power for a machine of its size. Like the entire GreenMech range, the EVO 165P Sub-750 comes with a no quibble, unlimited three-year warranty supported by the nationwide dealer network. “The customer service and liaison with GreenMech and GA Groundcare has been excellent throughout – Ashley even kindly organised a loan machine for us while we waited for delivery of our new unit.”
Greg concludes, “The diary is stacked out over the next few months and as the only chipper on our fleet, the EVO is going to be pivotal in us getting through the workload. It chips well and looks good – the fact it’s in our corporate colours is just an added bonus of course!”
