The SC800 shredder-chipper is the smallest hammermill style shredder-chipper in the Mighty Mac® hammermill Shredder Chipper lineup. However, do not let the size fool you; the SC800 will shred, mulch, and pulverize leaves and other yard debris. It will chip branches and small saplings up to 3 inches thick. The SC800 is as powerful as your needs.
This hammermill shredder-chipper is fit with a centrifugal clutch, which allows for easy no load starting on the operator and machine. Unlike direct drive machines, the centrifugal clutch allows the engine to disengage when stressed under a heavy load. This allows the engine to gain RPMs faster and more efficiently pulverize the material.
The shredder-chipper is small enough to fit in the garage taking up only two square feet of room.
The SC800 features a discharge adjustment allowing the user to focus where the pile of processed material goes. There are different screens available for different materials and different reduction sizes.
Made in the USA!

Super friendly and helpful staff. They answered my questions about some of the chipper/shredders they offer and put me in touch with a dealer in my area who had the model I wanted available for purchase. Here's a repeat of a post I just made on Facebook. "For YEARS, I've been filling the back of my Prius (yes... l'il Toyota Prius) with yard waste; nuts (hundreds of lbs of black walnuts annually), sticks, and small branches. Between me loosing patience waiting in line at the land fill to deposit my hard waste (they have an active composting facility) and them recently implementing a $5 minimum charge to dispose of yard waste (under 100 lbs used to be free), I decided to bite the bullet and invest in a hammer mill style chipper/shredder. MacKissic Inc. produces the unit I purchased... the Mighty Mac SC800. It cost a little more than some other residential-appropriate chipper/shredders and boy does it PERFORM! It was easy for me to start (slipper clutch) and has already proven to be supremely capable. I had a pile of branches from a recent storm that was easily 6 feet cubed; a non trivial pile! In less than 2 hours of effort, the entire pile has been converted to mulch that is now covering one of my landscape beds. To-do, ta-done! Thank you!
