I have been trying to find info on the Earthquake brand chipper/shredders, but to no avail. There seems to be bias to the Mighty Mac brand here. I'm sure it works great but is it worth the $1700 for this unit (12PT10). The Ardisam Earthquake has a 10HP for about 800 less
So does anyone have one of these, used one of these or have any other info on them at all? Does the MightyMac SC763 work better than the Earthquake, even though it is 6.5HP? Why would I buy the SC763 which is about the same price as the Earthquake, when I can get the latter with a bigger more powerful engine. For what it's worth, I will be using this machine to grind leaves in the fall...and I have a lot of them, and to clear and maintain the edge of the property line where I have been storing bracches and blowing said leaves for years. In other words, I'll have a lot of work at first, and then just maintenance once everything is cleaned up. But definitely enough work to warrant the purchase. I'll spend the extra money if it is worth it. Any input wopuld help. Thanks.
