Garden chopper “ZUBR” is a popular view of an electric agricultural tool and is widely used on household plots and in gardens. The instruments of this Russian brand are characterized by simply control, ease of use and relatively low cost.
Garden shredder acts as an indispensable assistant in the preparation of a plot for winter, during which the territory is cleaned from the accumulated garbage, dug and dry branches and old grass. The aggregates are perfectly coped with any waste of plant origin. They are used to process leaves, borties, root residues, bevelled grass, small and medium shrubs, as well as tree branches. The crushed substrate is introduced into the soil as an organic fertilizer, as well as shelter them the priority circles of fruit trees and rhizomes of perennial plants in the autumn period. Depending on the scope of the substrate, the degree of grinding of vegetable waste regulates.
So, for feeding plants take a smaller mixture, while the composition with larger fragments is used to cover roots for winter. In addition, dry chopped branches often serve as fuel for furnaces and boilers.
The production of choppers “ZUG” is engaged in the eponymous Russian company, for 20 years specializing in the release of household and professional instruments for many areas of activity. The main production capacity of the enterprise is located in China, but all manufactured products are undergoing strict control and is distinguished by high performance and excellent quality.
The design of the chopper “ZUG” is pretty simple, Consists of a durable plastic case built into it of an electric motor, a box for collecting mulch and a metal frame-transformer, which is a feature of all produced in the enterprise of shredders. Compactly folding, it reduces the height of the unit by more than 2 times, which is very convenient when transporting the device and its storage. Plastic box at the same time actuates the role of a lid that protects the device from pollution and possible damage. The design of the shredder also includes a bimetallic temperature fuse that does not allow engine overheating and automatically turning it off when exceeding the permissible load.
This allows you to significantly increase the resource of the motor and improves the safety of the aggregate. In addition, the device is installed protection from the start of the unit when removed or an incorrectly installed drawer for the substrate. The shredder cover has a M-shaped loading hole on which a calibrated slot is located. Thanks to this design, the feed of several branches immediately becomes impossible, which, in turn, protects the engine from overheating.
The cutting unit of the device consists of knives made of hardened steel. This allows it to be easy to cope with dry and with fresh branches obtained after trimming shrubs.
Feeding vegetable waste to the cutting element provides a pusher made in the form of a blade. He quickly delivers not only branches to the cutter, but also a lung grass. Thanks to such a device, the device is able to perform recycling of bevelled grass, which allows it to be used as a feeder in the manufacture of nutritional mixtures. The device is equipped with large and comfortable wheels. It makes it mobile and rather maneuverable, which allows you to move with it to it on a plot with any relief.
Advantages and disadvantages
A large number of positive feedback and high demand for choppers “Bison” due to the number of important advantages of these aggregates.
- Devices are considered multifunctional. In addition to the disposal of plant waste, the manufacture of feed and compost, the chopped substrate can be used as a litter in the chicken coop, or fall asleep the garden paths.
- The presence of wheels free from the need to carry a heavy unit on the site.
- Some models are equipped with a reverse function of a working shaft, which allows you to return back a thick branch with which the cutter could not cope.
- Noise load from the working unit is about 98 dB, which corresponds to the noise level of the working vacuum cleaner or walking along the road of the transport flow. In this regard, the device does not apply to the discharge of particularly noisy and requires the use of special headphones only with very long use.
- The device is quite maintainable and has no problems with the presence of spare parts.
The disadvantages include the energy dependence of the device, which is why when moving the device on the site it is necessary to pull the electrical wire. Gasoline models in this regard are much more convenient. In addition, the chopper is difficult to move along high grass: due to the significant weight of the device, the wheels wound on the grass and stop motion. Minus they consider both “straightening” of small chips and branches, which is why it is necessary to use personal protective equipment, covering them face and hand.
The range of choppers “bison” is not very large, and includes only 4 models, each of which has certain specialization and special performance characteristics.
Shredder “Bison” Zee-40-1600
This model is indispensable in the recycling of grass and fine shrub. The device is equipped with an electrical engine with a capacity of 1.6 kW, the rotation speed of the shaft is 3 thousand. rpm, and weighs the device 13.4 kg. The device can grind predominantly dry branches are not thicker 4 cm. In addition, the device is equipped with a function of adjusting the degree of grinding, which allows not only to dispose of herbal garbage, but also to receive a substrate for different economic needs. This is an important option when processing light raw materials, such as grass, and also allows you to insert the desired mode, not allowing the motor to work for all power.
The model is equipped with a sliding protective curtain that protects the operator from the departure of small branches and chips, and an electromagnetic switch that does not allow spontaneous inclusion of the unit after restoring the supply of electricity in the case of its sudden disconnection. As well as the unit is equipped with a recoverable thermal stitch that protects the engine from breakdown in case of overload. The productivity of the model is 100 kg / hour, cost – 8 thousand. rubles.
Zybit-40-2500 model model
The device is equipped with a more powerful engine of 2.5 kW and is designed to process dry, leaves and fresh branches with a diameter of up to 4 cm. The cutter consists of two double-edged knives, equipped with a belt gearbox that prevents the motor breakdown when the working shaft is encins. The device is equipped with an inclusion and protection against overheating, weighs 14 kg and costs 9 thousand. rubles. Performance of this device is 100 kg / hour.
This model is a more serious device and is able to recycle thick branches with a diameter of up to 6.5 cm. Grinding system is represented by cutting shaft. Engine power is 2.5 kW, weighs the unit of 22 kg, and costs 30 thousand. rubles. The model is equipped with a protective curtain, a removable frame, a thermal stitch, a regulator of the degree of grinding and a rumble of a shaft, helping to free the cutting shaft in case of swissing.
Zyte-44-2800 model model
The most powerful unit in the bison family – has an engine with a capacity of 2.8 kW and has a capacity of 150 kg / hour. The rotational speed of the shaft is 4050 rpm, the weight is 21 kg, the maximum permissible thickness of the branches – 4.4 cm. There is a regulator degree of grinding, overload protection and an inclusion blocker with a tank. The cutter is represented by a milling grinding gear mechanism, which automatically delays vegetable waste and thoroughly crushes them. The price of such a model within 13 thousand. rubles.
When working with the shredder, it is necessary to comply with a number of recommendations.
- Undesirable to recycle branches with knots. It can lead to overheating of the engine and causes the rapid bunge of the knives.
- Every 15 minutes of operation of the unit, you need to make five minute breaks.
- The optimal raw material for processing is fresh or dry grass, as well as branches that lay no more than a month. If the branches were cut off for a long time, it is possible to recycle only those of them, whose diameter does not exceed 3 cm.
- When grinding too thin branches, the knife type device often chops them on long segments, the length of which can reach 10 cm. This is normal for aggregates with such a cutter device, so there should be no reasons for concern.
