    I think you'll love it! I used mine yesterday cleaning up the pile of debris my wife trimmed from the trees in the front yard yesterday am. Didn't matter how leafy of sappy anything was. If it wasn,t stiff enough for the chipper throat it went into the shredder. I left the BXM32 on the tractor as I willl be giving the trees in the backyard their 'haircut' this weekend!

    Good luck.

    Question about the hydraulic feed on the 4 inch Wallenstein chipper (bx42R) -
    Are the hydraulics self contained, or does the tractor need to supply the flow? Couldn't really tell by the web site.

    I'm not sure if the 42 is the same, but I'm pretty sure with the BX62R you can get the independent hydraulic system as an option. It usually adds another $1500 to $2k if I remember correctly. My Vermeer chipper is self contained hydraulic feed, which is nice since the tractor doesn't need hydraulics. I know it was standard on the Vermeer but when I was looking into Wallenstein for the BX62R I believe they had it as an option. So, the BX42R may very well be available both ways as well.

    Got it figured out a lot better now. I keep a can of PAM baking spray on board now. Spray down the chute every morning just for good measure. I keep a couple 2" dry sticks handy to run in after any feeding of leaves. I can run a 12' long 4" thick limb through it no problem, but 2 handfuls of green leaves and it **** nears chokes itself to death. Anything over 4" I burn for firewood so this is for the sticks and brush after taking down trees. Did some oaks this weekend and it tore them up real nice. The branches go in great and as long as I keep the leaves on the ends to a limited amount they will feed through OK. I set my idle to about 1800 rpm with a perfect length stick I found, I only lost the stick twice during the day! luckily no one threw it through the chipper before I could find it again. You definitely want hearing protection when running this, the limbs banging off the inside of the feed chute sound like a giant metal drum, and you are right in front of it. I might try and wrap the sides with some foam rubber or something just to reduce the sound and vibration a bit. Overall it seems to be a very good attachment for chipping brush, as long as it is not pine or really sappy material.

    Also check the spacing on your knives, if they are a little wide it will not do the smaller stuff nearly as well

    Hearing protection, face shield, gloves, and long sleeves are mandatory in my opinion.

    Well I got the bxm32 and I knew as soon as I saw the way it was packed that this was a first class company. I don't know if anyone else has received theirs still in the crate but they even make a steel bracket to hold the two shoots in place for shipping. It took me by my self about an hour to unpack and set the unit up.

    Then off to the wood pile for the first test. As everyone else has said this is a great chipper and can handle all I need it to. We heat with wood so anything 3" and over is for fuel not chips. I wanted to see just what the 32 would take so I tried a few 3 1/2" to 4" branches in and soon found that if you feed then small side first it will chew them up with out any drag on the tractor at all.

    I would like to thank everyone that posted to this thread as it made it easier to make up my mind as to which brand and type would be best for me. I will post some pictures tomorrow as I was having to much fun chewing up the pile of pine branches and it got to dark for photos.

    Did I say yet that I love this newest addition to my work force. :-)

    I'm looking closely at the BXM32. One of the threads mentioned that the lower 3PH pins are very close to the ground. Can someone tell me the distance from the pins to the ground? I'm curious if the quick hitch on my 2720 will go low enough to latch onto it.

    Thanks!

    I use mine on an L3200, which I purposely keep on a small pallet that brings it up a couple of inches and makes attachment no problem. It moves easily by hand, so it's an easy hitch.
