Smallest chipper shredder with feed rollers?

Title says it all.Around fifteen years ago I bought a fairly robust looking electric garden shredder and it just blocked up with most stuff, so I have not actually used it much. A small semi-pro machine seems desirable, but I really would not consider one that doesn’t have feed rollers, any suggestions as to a suitable machine?

Best mower for cutting old graveyard

Hi all, I have been offered a contract for weekly spring / summer cut of a smallish size graveyard, >5000m2 very old and some very uneven land with graves currently covered in grass due to neglect of previous incumbent. Any suggestions on what type of mower would work best, they don't require grass collection, I was thinking of a petrol howler as i5 would be easy to move around and less chance of damaging a grave. Appreciate any advice you can offer, thanks in advance.

World Mental Health Day

Mental health is an integral aspect of Landscape Juice, and is something that rears its face often within the community - working alone, long days, especially during the winter is isolating and takes its toll. The network was founded on the idea of it being a platform for individuals within the industry to come together to discuss all 'taboo' aspects of the job and life as a horticulture professional. So, if this is anything, it is a reminder that this is a platform which was founded on being a…

"An open association like LJN is just a remarkable place. What you pay per year for what you get out of it is astonishing, and speaking personally, LJN has helped guide me from a new start up business into 5 years of profitable trading and I don't think I could have done that without access to the forum and the great contributors to it."
