    Default What's your opinion on this chipper ?

    I have about 5 acres of alders to clear A limited budget and i am pretty handy at welding and repairing equip I have been looking for a long time for a chipper I just found this one looks good and simple all parts are available in Canada and it can be shipped to my door for a very reasonable price Wood chippers, PTO Woodchippers, Woodland Mills Ontario Canada — PC8M - 8 What do you think ? I have talked to them and it is made in China That is the reason i have hesitated about buying it ..

    Looks like a Jinma that I have (Farm Pro), but with a few modifications. The only trouble I have with mine is keeping the bed blade from moving due to the vibration and the way it secures to the unit under the feed roller. If the bed blade touches a chipper blade - it's an eye-opener.

    I spent a few Summers in Five Islands as a teenager - you live in a beautiful place.
    Are the alders all coming down at the same time, or will this be done over a long period?
    The reason I ask is that if you will be taking the trees down oevr a short period, it may be much less expensive to rent a chipper for a few days and do nothing but process the slash piles into chips.
    That's the problem with trouble.

    It is a bit slower then those machines with a more vertical chute. This one is pulling the trunks in almost horizontally...and it's doing it nice and steady, if not fast...

    In that case it makes sense to own your own. I ended up getting a used Patu 4.5" for similar reasons - I can only cut on weekends and I never know when a storm is going to come thru and knock down a few. And it fit my budget. In some ways I wished I'd scraped together some more cash and got the Wallenstein that I'd been looking at. The infeed chute design on the BX42 is really sweet.

    I remember a forced march down from up the Moose River when the farmer's son, Freddy, started feeling his appendix - had to get him to hospital in Truro riggedy jig, but the traffic wasn't cooperating.

    If I had that much chipping to do I would just rent a big chipper and then buy a small one for the tractor to maintain it.

    Im not sure if the wood your chipping would be considered a hard or soft wood. I have a Jimna 6" that ive been using for 5-6 years, and have only sharpened blades 1 time. No other problems. I use it alot, but only have soft woods (pine, fir).

    They are way slower than the commercial hydraulic chippers, but so am i. I can barely keep up with my chipper.

    I purchased mine cause i knew id be using it for years and years. Rental was out of the question.

    Am i sorry i bought the China brand.... no

    Do i wish i bought a Canadian or USA brand..yes. But the price difference was way out of line back then. I only paid about $1,000 delivered for mine back then, and the us brands at JD were over 3,000 at the time. And im so stinking cheap
