    I've run my BX62 on as little as 18hp and 5 gpm......... you would have no trouble running one on your 790 as long as you aren't trying to use it to capacity. For me....... anything from 3-4 inches up is firewood and doesn't get chipped.

    I've the equivalent Salsco unit and I always sharpen,lap, and hone (as I would a bench chisel) after I use the machine. I find this makes a huge difference in the tractor/chipper ability. I am able to clean up the edges with the blades installed but a major ding would require removal, don't know about the wallensteins.

    Gotta keep very sharp blades.

    Good luck.

    In other words...you are pampering your BX62...

    I'll remember that when you get around to selling it some day...I'll be the first one in line bidding for it...
