 Anyone use a Jinma chipper?

I am toying with the idea of getting a chipper. The good American made chippers (Bearcat, Harper-Goosen, Valby) are all in the $3000-3500 range for something that will chip 5+ inches. Most of the chinese tractor dealers are selling a Jinma chipper which claims up to 6" capacity, power feed, and a blower for less than $2000. Does anyone here have any experience with these chippers? We are in the process of thinning our heavily overgrown woods and my wife is complaining of all the smoke from burning but I need to watch the budget. Most of the 4" or larger stuff is firewood, but I'm thinking of chipping the rest.

Check out DR Chipper (drchipper.com).

I just got the PTO model and it works beyond my expectations. Cost including shipping was around $ 1,800. It has taken 98% of all the storm and hurricane damage we have fed through it (takes up to 4 1/2 inch es).

I got a literature packet from DR on their chipper and it looked OK but it doesn't have a blower. I had discounted it because it seemed a little light duty for my needs - the flywheel is pretty light and it has only a single cutting edge. I could be wrong though. We need to thin a lot of trees (~1000) so I want something that will last.

How easy is it to feed wood into it? Does it self-feed very well or do you have to shove stuff through it? When feeding branches do you have to cut them down to a single stalk first?

 Anyone use a Jinma chipper?

I've decided to gamble on the purchase of a Jinma chipper. There are a couple of guys on the chinese tractor board who have used them and think they are great chippers even though they are inexpensive. They are simple with most parts readily available. Apparently the weakest think about them is the belt on the mechanical power feed. If you keep the belts adjusted and spare belts on hand they should be pretty reliable. It's quite a deal - I'm getting it for $1760 delivered 75 miles, which includes a spare set of blades. This sucker is heavy - nearly 900 lbs. The cheapest comparable name brand chipper/blower I could find was a bearcat at $1300 more with only 4.5" capacity instead of 6".

Would a Jinma Chipper chip and shredd up Palm fronds?

Palm fronds have a lot of strong fibers in them. I don't know if they will chip well and I sure wouldn't want to buy one without trying first. As an uneducated chipper neophyte, my guess is that the fibers may cause some problems.

We routinely have to deal with Palm fronds.

No chipper or shredder we have found yet does much to them unless they are absolutely dry, even then it's a gamble.

We use a tub grinder, which is not practical for the avarege person.

The best thing we have found for dealing with them so far is a match.

Best of luck.

Murf, where are you having to deal with palm fronds in Canada? I did not think it was possible to grow palms that far north unless they are moved or grown indoors. Love to watch that "Tim Allen" Cummins powered tub grinder though! Arrrrrghh, Arrrrgggghhh, Arrrrggghhhh! Wink yeah right

Chief, we work on golf courses and resorts all throughout the islands, during the summer we stay local, but in the winter we rotate the staff between 'down south' jobs and snow removal. A couple of weeks frozen, then a couple of weeks sweating. The difference between the US & Canuck buck makes our prices really attractive. Kind of a twisted benifits program for the employees.

The grinder is a real peice of work, it takes 4 BIG stumps at once to fill the tub and the conveyor on the output side will fill a tandem dump truck about every 10 minutes.

Best of luck.
