    Default 3 pt chipper

    I need a little help and info. Looking for a chipper for a kubota L235 DT 23 hp (19@pto) yes its old, W/less than 700 documented hrs. I would like any and all input on the biggest chipper that can use with this power. Even if there are any used ones out there. Jinma seems to be the best bang for the buck. But will they hold up. Questions, replacement parts are they available, gauge of steel used on chutes ect. cost of blades , belts ect. (In my own part of heaven, Frankford Delaware) Thanks to all Andrew

    I have a Bush Hog CS100-P, which is the made by Goossen. Goossen still makes and sells it. But, not Bush Hog. I think it would be OK on your tractor as long as you didn't push the chipper too hard. It's made for up to 5" stuff.

    What I like best about it is the shredder. It'll take anything 1-1/4" or smaller, and as much as you can get in the hopper.

    It's a well built piece of equipment. Changing blades on the chipper is a pain. Too many bolts to remove. Uses 3 chipper blades, nonreversible. A new set will set you back over a $100. But, you can get them sharpened relatively easily.

    It is heavy (~600 lbs). Make sure your tractor has the weight and 3PH capacitiy to handle it.

    There are several good makes out there that will work for you. Just depends on what you want and what's available. Haven't seen too many used 3PH units out there. Though I did find mine that way.

    The Jinmas get OK reviews as long as you prep them properly, and change out a few inferior parts (like belts).

    Do a search in this forum for chippers and you'll get all you ever wanted to know.

    I have sold the Jinma woodchippers for years,no major problems.We now sell a unit we branded as TomCat that uses 95% of Jinma parts but this factory made some changes for us that the customers asked for,1- 360 degree discharge chute,2- adjustable leg height,3-upgraded feed roll driveshaft,4- some plates inside chute to help keep the vines off the sides of the feed roller,8" capacity.We also keep all the parts in stock.I have put them on several 20 hp tractors you just wont get the full 8" chipping capacity,they weight 850 lbs so it may be a little big for your tractor.My personal opinion is they are a great value and you will not find anything this size that will compare in price.

    We sell & support the Originial Jinma 6 inch PTO driven chipper.

    We sell 99.9% of our new chippers serviced / preped ready to work. We feel that they do NEED this. We feel that the belts are the weakest link on the chipper (chinese rubber). We offer a Industrial Belt upgrade at the time of purchase ......... installed or Not. Some have us go ahead and replace them and some run the factory belts till they break and install the industrial belts then.

    We stock replacement parts.

    Your 3 point lift needs to be able to handle 800 pounds and need to be able to keep the front wheels on the ground with 3 point up. If you have a front loader ???... it should not be a problem.

    Depending on what type of wood you will be chipping ???? You want be able to feed in a full 6 inch Limb with 19 pto hp.

    We dont have a shopping cart on our web site for part sales ........ you still have to do it the old fashion way......... talk to us.

    The price of our chippers and blades are here,

    Andrew, I've not had to replace any parts on my chipper yet, but here's some info that might help determine what your 19hp PTO can drive.

    I have a Wallenstein BX42s (400+ lb) I use on my BX24 (18hp @ PTO) and it will run through 2"-3" stuff pretty much non-stop, above that the tractor starts to stall out when you run longer lengths (6'+), BUT a lot depends on what type and how dry your timber is. For me anything 2.5" and up goes to the firewood pile. One thing about the BX42 is that it's direct drive, 4 knives, no belts; a nice simple low maintenance chipper. If I ever need to chip 3"+ stuff in any volume, I'll try removing 2 of the 4 knives and see how that works. I assume that fewer hits/chips per revolution would help keep the revs up for longer pieces, it would just take a little longer per stick and I don't think that would really matter much since it can pretty much processes a stick as fast as I can reload. My 42s does not have the powered self-feeder, but once I drop a stick in the hopper, it almost always pulls it in without my assistance.
    ...might even be a little older tomorrow

    I also have a Wallenstein...the Model 62. I like it becuase it is simple, direct drive, 4 knives that are reversable, 360 degree rotating chute, easily opens (only 1 bolt to remove) if you need to clear out vines or replace/reverse blades. Easy to access the bearing grease zerks, has a large steel "Loop" ring on the top so you can easily hook a chain on it to lift and move it around without having to hook it to your 3-pt first. Don't need a feeder either. Once you drop your tree in there step back...the thing sucks in trees and branches like a hungry monster! Not a single issue and I have 2 seasons on it chipping very dry wood that was left from a utility company clearing trees on our power line cut. I'm clearing acreage for a Christmas tree farm so it's getting a lot of use. I blow the chips into my pickup bed and then just shovel them out around the farm. Great piece of equipment.
    Nothing against the Jinma, but I felt it had too many moving parts with too much of a chance for something to break. I tend to live by the KISS rule (keep it simple, stupid)

    I just purchased a Patu DC 65, really nice unit. Has the hyd. feed also, but it's what I do for a living, arbor work. Heavy, but built heavy and strong. You can just see it. Blades are too bad to change either. Pricey, but needed something really reliable that will run for me everyday, all day.

    Default Re: 3 pt chipper

    I have a Salsco 824 (4") that runs just fine on my kubota B26. It seems very solid and well made and is surprisingly quiet. I really like the power feed, the longer you work the more you appreciate it. Salsco is made near me in Rhode Island which I like. The only down side is the price, $6,200. Probaly I could have bought a used stand alone for that.

    And 3- Jinma or TomCat chippers for less than $ 6,200.00,the belt driven feed roll will pull 6" material in with no problem at all,some people drive Fords some Mercedes both will get you to the same place.
