    I'm looking for a PTO Chipper for a 15-30 PTO output range. Any experiences out there regarding which are good and which are bad? I'd be looking for residential/farm use not commercial. Also you seem to add a lot of cost when you add powered feed. Do the gravity feed models work pretty good or do you end up vibrating your arms off :dizzy:

    Thanks ! :blob3:

    you can probably find a used self contained chipper for around 3500 or so. This would be a drum type chipper 6 inch capacity. Ford 6 cyl gas engine. Like the big boys use. They are fairly simple to maintain and operate. Just an idea.
