Addicted to Gardens: addicted to Hansa

Addicted to Gardens is an arbor business which focuses on the form, structure, and overall health of trees. Owner Matthew Pittard has found the versatility and efficiency of Hansa chippers ideally suited to the company’s aims.

“Since the company started, we always used Hansa,” he reflected. “I originally bought the five-inch C21 and quickly upgraded to the seveninch C40 diesel chipper. It was a gamechanger for me.

“Then we moved to the 10-inch C65 Hansa in 2021.” Through clever design, Hansa’s C65 boasts extraordinary capacity-toweight ratio, tipping the scales at under 1950kg and offering uncompromised performance. The 10″ capacity is accentuated by a wide feed opening, and it’s often described as a ‘small in size but big in capacity’ chipper.

“The Hansas are so easy to tow around,” said Matthew. “I can even push it by myself to where I want it if we’re on a flat, and when we have jobs we can’t get into with the truck, like boggy ground or limited height, I’ve also got a 4WD and I can just hook the chipper on. That’s been really handy.”

With a variety of optional extras available for the C65, Matthew is grateful he opted for both the lift-andcrush and hydraulic-winch features.

“When you’re putting in bigger logs, being able to lift the roller so you can get in underneath and drive it in – as opposed to hoping the rollers are going be able to drive it up and over – effectively triples the bite force and can be controlled from either side of the chipper.”

Matthew adds, “Most (arborists) think there’s no alternative to the big, massive machines made in America, but why? There’s a really good product coming right from our doorstep in New Zealand.”

As a final thought Matthew offered, “I like the fact I can customise the colour. Everything matches. I keep my business well-presented and I believe it makes a difference. Customers have even told me that’s why they called me.”
