    Default Re: Liberty BH USA or China made?

    wow what a review. I find the broken u joint scarey. I ahve never had this happen.But if i were to have been the person who bought it Id have it on my credit card, so after the first hours problems the credit card company would put it in disput mode. and untill they corrected the problem the company wouldnt get their money.Personaly the lack of customer service responce is what turned me off from this review..
    One chipper I looked at mentioned torguing the blades and checking the belts so possibly the belt falling off was more common... But the shaft. hmmmm

    I read this article (it was posted in 2007) and after reading it through, immediately ordered my 8" Liberty Chipper.

    It's pretty obvious that these folk at the farm know very little about anything mechanical and IMO shouldn't be using a chipper at all. What they said about the universal joint failure "The manual says you can sway 15% from horizontal, but I didn't see the need to as I was on flat ground." There you go, they even admit their mistake. Notice they even have the chipper sitting on a pallet at one point. Maybe an attempt to level the shaft to less than 15 degrees?

    My LW6 backhoe is on the way from BC for 3900.00 delivered compared to 8000.00 - 12000.00 kubota or Kioti I could buy another LW6BH for parts or a spare and still be $$$$ in....Hope it's as good as it looks

    Checked and my unit is in Canada and yes the price included all Duties,Taxes
    And Shipping Fees. I have spoken with David and Alex many times and they
    have given me full assurance of the product and that i will be totally satisfied
    with this unit. I used my PayPal and the price of the CDN Dollar was in my favour. Its slated for delivery to my door Aug 15
