    Does anyone know if any manufacturer makes a small wheeled chipper with auto-feed? I'm 60, don't seem to be getting younger, and chipping dead doug fir and engleman spruce limbs gives one's arms a beating. It would need to chip up to approximately 3" in diameter.

    Thanks in advance.

    Surprised there were no responses.

    Vermeer, Bearcat, Rayco.. They all make small chippers. I have the Bobcat version of Bearcat that runs off my hydraulics but it's also available with a motor. It does up to 9" and eats 3" no problem. I owned/operated a 20" chipper with loader for years but mostly use a forestry mulcher now but you can't beat a 6" chipper for tight places and low maintenance.
