    you have to have 20 chippers and 20 carbides.they have to be evenly spaced.its balanced ok.

Anyone ever try this or had any luck? Worried it mite throw the fae drum off balance.
    I know this is an older post and I'm asking the same question as originally posted, however I'm just wandering how chipper teeth would work(Balance out) if I ran them in the center of my drum with carbides on the outsides. I was thinking of a 1/3 ratio on a 34 tooth FAE head! Any thoughts?

    It would be best to weigh both types of teeth before changing anything. I know the new Fecon/AHWI are interchangeable but FAE I'm not shaw of. You could end up with a machine that's got Parkinson Disease.

    Change them all.
    I just swapped out the original carbides with planer carbides on the entire drum. Made a world of difference; no jams, smaller chips, drum stays spinning longer. Would have saved a lot of fuel & time over the last few years if I had switched sooner.

    Do you have enough hours on the teeth yet for good data? I've thought about those but was concerned that they would chip easy and become a typical carbide hammer pretty quick.
    No matter what anyone tells you, old fencing, cable, and farm implements that are in the middle of the woods are not your friends!

    Well, put the chipper teeth(10 of them)in the center of the drum with hammers on the outsides and Wow! what a difference! Balance feels good,no vibrations and cuts like heck! Think I'm gonna like this setup!

    Only got about 40 hours on the new planers, but results are good. Fortunately, we don't have a lot of rocks around here to deal with. Mostly large visible boulders.

    I took the cutter bar to a guy with a water jet. For only $50 he took 1/8" off the bar for a factory new edge. The gap between teeth & bar is set to 1/8" by using a piece of angle iron as a gauge.

    Cutting a 1/2" allen wrench in half and using a deep socket & bar made quick work out of loosing the socket screws.
