    I have a befco Brushmaster. I love it. best thing about it is it has a power feeder rather than having to feed it by hand. This this will chip all day and you dont get as tired as I have with other pto and self powered units that you have to push the material into. Take a look on the web and see.....it is a great machine. I have on a JD 3720 just in case you wondered.

    No real experience but I looked into one for my JD 855 (same engine size as your Kutoba) and decided that I just didn't have enough PTO horses to get a chipper for it that would be very productive. This was after talking to a couple of dealers and a couple of manufacturer reps at shows. I think you need a minimum of around 25 HP at the PTO to get a decent sized/productive unit. Depends what you wanna do with it I guess.
