Equipment

Blackwood Landcare has two trailer-mounted machines which can be borrowed by members.

The group owns a C13 Hansa chipper and a 300-litre, trailer-mounted spray unit.  Members are entitled to free herbicides from our supply. Members are expected to have an appropriate working with chemicals certificate to use the sprayer.

Annual membership costs just $10 per year. Email the secretary to become a member – admin@blackwoodlandcare.org.au .Hansa C13 road trailer

When using the equipment, members are covered by the group’s insurance through our membership of Landcare Vic Inc.

A daily fee of $30 is charged to cover the initial petrol and ongoing maintenance costs.  This fee is subject to review at any time.

Members need to be inducted into the safe usage of the machines. A form outlining the C13 Chipper induction can be downloaded here.  You will be taken through an induction and asked to sign that you have been instructed and that you understand.
