    I was going through a pile of brochures and came across one I picked up at a show last year.
    It's from Salsco and it was for thier model #625 chipper/shredder/vac.

    Comes with 25hp koehler (or 33hp diesel)
    Handles branches up to 5"
    Shredder hopper for brush
    Looks like 10" diameter vac hose for leaves (says wood chips too)

    Can also get optional straw blower kit.

    The chipper/shredder/vac itself (w/o straw blower) runs $8995.

    Considering a tow behind leaf vac (w/25hp) alone can run $4k, seems like a pretty neat deal for someone who has a frequent use for a chipper/shredder.

    Just wondering if anyone has one, or what everyones thoughts were on this.

    This Machine looks like take off of the woods chipper I have. Problem is it does not have a power feed and you have to cut the crotch to run them in the chipper. It works great on palms but anything with a crotch must be cut. Anytime you have a machine that does it all, it doesn't do it well. I would not buy it unless I saw it really doing a job.
