    Default Wallenstein BX62 Chipper

    Ran my new Wallenstein BX62 chipper today and is quite the machine. I was nervous about buying a chipper without hydraulic feed (budget wouldn't allow it ) but I am impressed with the Wallenstein's ability to self feed . It throws the chips pretty far, too. The first picture shows it on my Case DX45. The second picture shows a branch resting on the hopper. I had the camera ready, gave the branch a push and jumped back to snap the picture. The BX62 had almost swallowed the whole branch before I got the picture. That's pine that has been sitting for 2 years so it was pretty dry and all the limbs where stiff, but the chipper just pulled it in bending and breaking the limps as it went.

    So far the only draw back is that I had to settle for the NH blue as it was the only BX62 the dealer had in stock and he gave me a pretty good price to take that one rather than order a red one.

    I used to have a BX62 with the hydraulic feed and it was a brush eating monster. Sounds like the manual feed works just as well. The blue looks good........... congrats on your new chipper !

    I have the Orange BX62 to match my kubota. Yes, it's an animal. Be careful....I've had the "boys" and my face whacked a few times as it pulls trees into the chute.
    Great chipper!

    Am contemplating BX62 vs. BX42. What PTO HP does your Case 45 have? I have a NH Boomer 3045 with rear PTO @ 36.7 HP. I am wondering if the Wally BX62 would be under powered and would be better going with BX 42. Appprox. $1000 price diff and 4 vs. 6 inch logs, but don't see myself chippping anything greater than 3-4 diam. Any regrets getting the BX 62?

    My advice......... if the extra money isn't going to kill you, get the 62. Granted, you may not be able to run it to capacity, but the larger throat will take the crotches in the limbs better. I never attempted to chip anything 6" across either.......... 4" and up was always firewood to me.

    I think the hp requirements they list are a little overstated to make sure people are happy with the performance. My BX42 works well on my 18 hp pto right up to the 4" stuff. The BX62 weighs almost twice as much as mine, that's a big unit and it's hard to tell from the pics.

    My Case has the same ratings as your Boomer, 36.7 HP at the PTO. I have no regrets getting the 62 over the 42 other than the dealer had a 42 in red. He only wanted $500 more for the 62 so it wasn't too hard to decide. I agree with Ductape that the wider opening helps with crotched branches and will reduce the amount of trimming you have to do.

    I did stall the tractor with a larger diameter limb shown in the picture. It had already chipped about 5 feet of that limb. There was a heavily knotted section just before the cut in the picture that slowed the tractor and think it just ran out of momentum. I restarted the tractor and threw that piece back in and it gobbled it up without issue. I didn't have a tape with me to measure the limb, but that is a 10" adjustable wrench laying on it.

    Dredging this somewhat old thread up for any comments regarding this particular chipper. The Wallenstein's seem pretty well regarded & there is also a BX62 on the lot not too far away.

    BUT...I have an L3400 which, at 29 pto HP, is 1 HP under Wallenstein's recommendation. But as stated in the quote above, 4" & up IS firewood for me too & the wider width opening would be a plus. I definitely am NOT looking to chip at maximum capacity. From the specs, the BX62's flywheel is twice as heavy as the 42 (150 vs 75) seems like that inertia would be a real plus especially with less available HP.

    I think Happyman's (hi Fred) tractor is rated just 2.5 pto HP more than mine.

    In the past I have regretted not going bigger (bushhog, finish mower) so I'm inclined to err to the larger size.

    Anyone else using a BX62 on a lower end of the HP range? Work OK?


    Thanks, TD
