    I just bought a wally BXM 32 and love the thing. I have used the chipper more, then run the chips through the shredder if I want them smaller. The BXM32 takes all I can throw at it. Keeps 2 people feeding it and never misses a beat. I researched them heavily and looked for used for over a year. There was not one single wally chipper shredder for sale in over a year within 500 miles that I found. I have a link with a video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7X24...ature=youtu.be

    Also, if I buy the BX-42 I'll be feeding a lot of 4" material since that is still a bit small to burn. How does the BX-42 handle a solid 4" log? I've got 35hp at the PTO.



    Thx,

    My BX42 handles 4" logs with no problem and I have quite a bit less PTO HP than you do. If I was to do it over again I would buy the BXM42 for the shredder and I only have 3 acres of pine forest to your 20. Straight branches are always the easiest to feed into the chipper and the leftovers are best fed into a shredder hopper. They'll go through the chipper too but not as fast as the shredder. My father has a Bearcat chipper/shredder and I've seen how fast that shredder eats whatever is put into it.

It's not that difficult and so much easier than letting them get really bad.
    Do you just run a file over the edge? I haven't sharpened mine yet and I've got at least 10 hours on it. I haven't noticed any negative effects on its chipping ability yet. Maybe because most of what I put through it is pine.

    Pinetree,

    Long before you will see any effect on chipping ability you will find it stops self-feeding. It happens gradually so you may not notice it until you suddenly realize you are having to work more than you should to feed it. They will still feel sharp to the finger when they are too dull to self-feed. Ten hours, especially if you are doing soft wood with no dirt or stones on it is well within the normal life of a sharpening.

    I doubt you can touch them with a file. You can use a bench grinder if you are very careful to not over-heat them - keep water handy and dip them often. But it's hard to keep them even. I get much better results with a sharpening system that runs wet and slow. I use a Tormek machine that also has provision for keeping the blades at a fixed angle that works very well.

    I just went to the Tormek web site to check out their machines. Which one are you using? Their web site specifications show the T7 model to be 240 volt but I found the same model on other web sites and it shows 120 volt. It would be nice to sharpen without the high speed of a grinder.

    I've got the Tormek T3 and it's a great sharpener. I don't use it as much as I did when I was doing a lot of woodworking, though. It was great for sharpening chisels, turning tools, hand plane blades, etc.

    Mine is an older model, at least 5 years and probably closer to 10 years old. It has a 10" wheel which makes it like the T7. It's worthwhile just for sharpening kitchen knives - my wife is so pleased when I do that!

    I use the planer blade attachment for chipper knives, which makes it easy to get a uniform bevel on the whole set. Mine came from Garrett Wade in New York.

    I just went and checked mine, and I was wrong. It's not the T3. It's a "Supergrind" and has the 10" wheel. So, I suspect it's the same model as yours. It's green instead of blue and I've had it for 10 - 12 years.

    Yikes, I didn't know they had gone up so much in price. But they are great.

    I think the Bear-cat would be my first choice, if the blower kit was included.
    I hope I'm not too late to join the party! I have a Wally BXM32 that I ran for ~3 years behind a JD2305 (18PTO HP) with no problem. I love how stoutly the unit was shipped, it was easy to do the assembly off the pallet, and is a dream to work with. I too, bought from the good folks at Woodward Crossing. You can't go wrong with them. Isn't there a business near you with a loading dock or forklift that you could have your unit delivered to? It would sure beat a 4 hour drive ...
