    I like the skid idea if you don't mind the machine being raised slightly.

    Or, perhaps you could move the hitch pins on the chipper to where you want them.

    I recently purchased aBX62R and encountered the leveling problem,so I installed a hydraulic top link.Now the chipper sits level and the vibrations are greatly reduced.The unit is mounted on aJD 5105M and turns at 540rpm at 1750 engine rpm in the pto e mode.The hydraulic feed is definitely the way to go-my helper snagged his glove on a feeding branch and I disengaged the feed drive before it could pull him in.I never operate this beast alone;my position is always at the feed control bar.

    No issues with the BX-42 on my kubota B2920. I have to tighten/shorten the top link to drive on/off my trailer without dragging the back of the chipper, but once out in the woods, I loosen/lengthen the top link and can always get the chipper flat on the ground. No problems attaching or detaching from the three-point either, though I do store it on a pallet to keep it off the ground.

    This morning used the Wallenstein BX42 to mulch a Flatwoods Plum along the Nature Coast State Trail.

    Note my "favorite" branch under the chipper base. It is nothing fancy.

    Also a photo of how I secure the chipper end of PTO shroud chain #2.

    I think you just need to buy a shorter toplink at tractor supply. The chipper has a long base that extends pretty far out from the lift arms.
