 ok to chip older branches

Hi folks,

I'm looking pretty closely at the Wallenstein BX60 chipper, to run on my 52 PTO Hp tractor. The stuff I need to chip ranges from freshly cut, to years old, from 5 inches or so to fairly thin brush. Is this the right machine?

Thanks,
Jim

I don't know anything about Wallenstein, but a 52 hp pto should have no problem at all with 5" material. Is the BX60 rated to work up to 52 hp? When chipping old wood the knives will dull faster.

and you will probably need to wear a dust mask. I know when I chip old stuff it nearly chokes and blinds me.

Jim, The Wallenstein seems to be a very good machine, My neighbor has one and uses it on a JD 4510 (33pto hp) and chips up too 6" but IMO anything over 2" is firewood. I agree with the other posters, chipping old wood will dull your blades & choke you up.

David

I've gotta agree with the "dust". I have a fairly small Bearcat (an 8N or my NH-TC33 runs it easy) .. it's rated/sized for 5", but anything wrist size or more is firewood here. I used to complain that it made SAWDUST rather than CHIPS ... well, it was that we just made brush piles of the "small stuff" and didn't get to chipping till LOTS later. I've had more time lately and find that using it on fresh/green brush is easier, quietier, less dusty, and DOES make actual chips !! Gotta be easier on the machine too! JD

I'm assuming your chipper is a disk-type. These are really hard on your hands and arms as far as trying to keep the limbs from shooting back at you, or wildly bouncing side-to-side in the chute (wear hearing protection too!). I had a hard time selling my commercial 24hp 6" unit because of that. A friend rented a Home Depot version a little larger than mine and broke his finger when a limb shot back at him. They're not toys. From an efficency standpoint most pro's use what are called "C&D chippers" (chuck and duck) drum-type chippers as they virtually suck in the limbs in seconds--so chuck it in there and duck because you might become chipped yourself!
