 Help With Tractor Purchase For Chipper Use

I need to fit the tractor to the chipper for the correct land size and I am in a bit of a dilema...I have 1.5 acres in Miami where palms are our biggest issue. I started off looking at a BX24 and a Bearcat 77454 4.5" Chipper with a cantilever disc (supposidly no drum for fibers to wrap around).

I have owned the Bearcat 72854 and a Grand L4230- but thought it was too large for this size land. Today I looked at the new Grand L series and feel like this is once again large for what I am doing but may be a neccessity to drive the HP requirements of a 9" chipper rated from 25 to 60 hp on a diesel.

When I take a look at the actual debris around the property which includes the "boots" of the palms (the thickest part of the actual frawn), frawns, ficus, oak, and dead plant material.

So now I am looking at a Bearcat 76854 Orchard Chipper with a 9" PTO Hydraulic unit (the shute on the orchard model is smaller and would fit in the garage) that I would have to move up in tractor size to a Grand L series, possibly 30-50 Hp at the PTO.

1. Has anyone used the Orchard Chipper Bearcat 76854 unit?

2. Has anyone used the 77454 chipper by Bearcat? By picking the BX 24 and this unit the palm boots go in a garbage can and I may have a more managable unit to manuaver in the yard...something that may be a better fit.

3. What would you recommend tractor wise for me to look at that would have enough HP on the PTO to drive the larger unit?

Any help would be appreciated and thanks for clearing my head-

Dazed and confused in Miami.

Rich

Around here a 12" disc goes for about $280 a day for a Home Depot rental. Do you really need to buy a set up?

I would prefer to own it...as I enjoy doing the cutback on the yard and most of the estimates we get are over $500 to haul material off...crazy prices.

Maybe you don't want to maintain additional equipment but it's possible you could buy both a used trailer based chipper and a BX for less than the bigger equipment. I bought a used 85 hp 12" Bandit commercial chipper for $9k and it's probably worth close to what I paid for it after three years of ownership. Maybe you could get a 9" commercial powered pull-behind chipper for $5-6k.

That would be an option as well. I just figured I would have a PTo chipper hooked up all the time to a tractor. Boy, that Grand L 5740 is a heck of a unit for a 9" chipper but I can imagine I can run a chipper on a lower rated PTO.

I am at a loss to say what I need as I am the type of guy that wants to cut the limbs and palms, and get the pile out of the yard asap- or until the palms dry out some.

Who knows anymore, I'm here in NY with spruce and oak he's worried about palm trees! I'll be there in four months, you provide a roof and john and no limbs from palm tree's for you to worry about!

Is composting to some degree an option? How about a hammer or flail-type shredder? We used one on the farm for processing compost--'course I have no idea how palms would go through it. I had a 24 hp gas, Promark, 6" disc mounted on a trailer with a 12-yard dump box. If the stuff was wet there would be some heat generated which isn't good for the machine. And it is difficult to feed it when it's wet.

A good way to see what type of chipper works best for palms might be to check out the type of chippers the landscape guys in your area are towing behind them.

Most of them are using drum type chippers.

Botics,

Have you looked at the Kubota B7610?

The B7610 is a step up from the BX series, and it offers quite a bit of power for its size. I believe it's exactly what you're looking for.

Just a suggestion........



Joel
