    On the BX42 they are rated to 1000 RPM's per Wallenstein so you can run it faster which helps with the light stuff. Also adding some thicker wood as others have said will also keep the chute clear.

    Sounds like you guys have answered the question I came here for. Picked up a Wallenstein bx42 over the weekend. I was really disappointed that I jammed it three times in less than half an hour. It was jamming when I was putting green pine and cedar through it. I think it is partly because of the sticky sap, and the way the leaves or fronds of the piice spread out and catch on the outfeed. The outfeed looks like it is about 6" across at the start just above the chipping wheel, and then necks down to about 4" at the junction that holds the pivot for the chute. I will lay off the evergreens and run just other stuff through it for a day and see what happens.
    What speed am I supposed to run the PTO at? I have 540 or 720. What RPM on the engine is needed? I have a Jinma 354 diesel. I have always used 540 with a brush hog and tiller, so was hesitant to run at 720. Maybe if I crank up the speed it won't jam. I was thinking more power vs more speed.
    The BX42 is a great chipper but like I've said on here before, it's not really meant for twigs and other lightweight stuff that a chipper/shredder is designed for. I too have had my chute plug because I put too much small stuff through in a row. It wants to eat larger branches and spit out chips to clear the chute and you have to alternate between the larger stuff and the smaller stuff to keep the chute clear. I like the idea of WD-40 in the chute. I'll try that.

    I would have bought the BXM42 but it was just too big for my taste. I think my tractor would have handled it ok with 31HP but I like the maneuverability of the chipper and the direct drive keeps it simple. It really has been a reliable piece of equipment. I hope it works out for you.

    It is not only the small stuff but how green it is. Sap makes things sticky. Instead of WD-40, you can spray down the chute with diesel. Even better, do what I do, 1 part old motor oil, 2 or 3 parts diesel. Either a pump sprayer or an old paint brush.

    Thanks, I'll try all these and see if it helps. I want it for a chipper for sure, I will break up the tops more and not try and jam all in at once. Thought about feeding them "backwards" as well, putting the bushy leaves and all in first and following up with the thicker trunks. Seems like it would pull in a lot better feeding the larger pieces in first though. This still has the new green paint in the shoot, so maybe a good dose of oil or lube will help stuff fly through.

    I am also in the market, have the L3200 and trying to go bxm 32 or bxm 42? Have about 5 acres with potential for another 60. Chipper/shredder? That is the question.

    Just like the OP you will be wishing you had a shredder.

    that was my thinking as well, lots of small trees to clear up, and probably I should be going for the 42 for the bigger shoot size.
