WITH a ground clearance of 194 mm, tacking speed of 3.2 kph, and the same processing power as much bigger machines, the EVO 165DT has been described as the perfect ‘go anywhere’ woodchipper. And it’s living up to that reputation in a small corner of Wiltshire. 

S P Tree & Landscaping recently took delivery of GreenMech’s latest chipper and owner Steven Parker says it has been up to the task, no matter the job. 

Said to be on “par with the performance of an existing 8-inch road-tow machine”, the EVO 165DT has been there for the firm's wide range of clients, from domestic customers, to commercial outfits, parish councils, and even building firms.

“I looked around at the tracked offerings from various manufacturers and was almost ready to commit to another brand when Ashley Stevens of GA Groundcare demoed the EVO 165DT for us,” Steven said. “I was really impressed by the brute strength and performance of it, which, combined with the after-sales support we’ve always had from GA Groundcare Ltd, sealed the deal.” 

As with the other models in the GreenMech EVO series, the 165DT features a wide infeed chute, twin horizontal feed rollers and a heavy-duty flywheel which delivers unparalleled processing power for a machine in its category.

“The work that’s gone into the new EVO range is evident,” Steven added. “A lot of thought around the design and the accessibility of all the controls has made the EVO 165DT incredibly user-friendly – all of my team love using it. 

“The position of the infeed controls in particular make a huge difference, and the ability to reverse bulky material out is great. Compared to our SAFE-Trak, it’s also smaller and lighter to navigate when on site.

“Since we took delivery of this machine in September 2021, it’s processed everything we’ve needed it to and performance-wise, it’s been keeping up with our 8” woodchipper which is seriously impressive.”
