Would like to know which of these would be better. We have about 2.5 acers of trees and a lot of small limbs in an initial clean up then just maintenence.

Troy Built 10 hp that claims up to 3" capacity -$799
or
Mackissic 6 hp that claims 2 7/8" capacity - on sale for $579

thanks very much

Save your money, don't buy either one. Find a guy with a commerical chipper and hire him to do the chipping. It would take you forever and a day to do 2 1/2 acres with one of the units you list.

I agree with Gene,. My friend had some scrub take down a tree. To clean the branches up, the scrub had a Crapsman chipper. After about an hour, he had barely dented the pile. My friend had to hire a real tree company to finish the job.
