 Who Makes the Best Chipper Period

I'm sort of playing devil's advocate here, but what I learned about them is that they are very expensive (even the ones without hydraulic feed) and they also aren't all that fast.

I looked at some used ones and then figured that I could take utility trailers of brush to the dump indefinitely and spend less time and money doing it. We get plenty of material for composting from leafs and needles that do fall. However, our Township does have three landfill sites and no tippage fees, so dumping is close and free. Having said this reminds me that I do have a brush pile from last summer still waiting for me to get around to it. If I had a chipper it probably would already be in the compost pile.

You have some good points there Tom. I was thinking that they are really expensive but I was thinking about the possibility of using one for the land scaping business. We end up with a lot of branches and scraps of wood that I was thinking we could mulch rather than push into a pile and burn. Figured the customs might pay for the service and have a nice pile of mulch to boot. Like I said, I am still learning. Lot of "gee wiz" "that would be nice" ideas that haven't paid off so far.

Always tough this small buz stuff. What I learned in ten years of my sideline sound and lighting buz is that the jobs that pay well take a lot of very expensive equipment. If I had that equipment then I had to keep it busy or savings bonds pay better and without having to baby-sit musicians either.

After some ego inflating years of working touring and regional bands I found that the meetings and seminars niche worked better with my day job. If I didn't have days free to promote the buz I couldn't keep the heavy equipment busy. Meetings just took a lot less time and equipment.

It strikes me that there could be a business idea based on a chipper. Maybe marketed as sort of an environmental idea. I say this because even my wife who doesn't like mechanical things at all encouraged me to get a chipper because she likes the idea of composting. Somebody must be tired of having a dozen black plastic things and still having to dispose of leafs. Maybe some people would like a compost pit constructed and maintained. Mulch itself is cheap enough that I don't imagine people would pay enough for having their prunings reduced to mulch to pay for a chipper but maybe there's something to a composting buz. Of course around here there are fire bans or burn permits are required for most of the season so maybe the buz could be disposal rather than environment. People in a nearby town were up in arms because the town required use of degradable plastic bags for their annual clean-up week. Of course the town didn't tell residents in time and then stores didn't have any bags. The town did relent, but the disposal buz could have been big. Don't take me seriously, I'm just doing a bit of armchair buz thinking to see what pops up. There are some pretty good small buz discussions in the archives.

Chief, I thought you were selling deeres for your local dealer! I didn't know you had change or moved or maybe I was reading into something more than what was said. Anyway, look for one with power feed rolls, they are more money and you did not set a price for goals. Some do have good blower units which could load a truck or just disperse back into the woods or where ever. That should get you started.

Art, I did that for awhile when I was on active duty. Then came the deployment to Iraq which pretty much took all my time. I just recently retired and the tractor business is not a good place to be. I have steadily been building up business doing lawn care/landscaping and was considering the chipper for the reasons Tom eluded to. Burn bans make limb disposal tough for home owners. I am in the thinking about it stage anyway. Being self employed gives me the flexibility to work through some medical issues I am working through as well.

You can pay less for a high volume dump trailer than a good chipper. I bought a Troybilt chipper a couple years ago for $1k at Lowe's. I am sure I could have bought a high sided 6x10 trailer for that price.

Then I made the same discovery that Tom spoke of: It takes all day to chip up a the same pile of stuff that would require only an hour to load up and take to the dump.

So I guess it comes down to mind over matter. If you don't mind, it don't matter.

I bought a used TroyBilt Tomahawk a few months back. It looks similar to the Bearcat except for color and the price. Built like a tank. I have trouble finding "organic" compost meeting the CEO's specs, so the chipper has helped and almost everything on the property gets chipped, shredded and composted. It does take time the quality of my compost has skyrocketed. Course I also just got chickens and they're adding more nitrogen. But smaller pieces to compost and chicken manure seem to be a winning combination.

The chickens would help and so might some lime. I dug a pit about 12' x 8' x 2' a few years back. We've been putting unshredded leaves and pine needles in pit late fall, mounding it up several feet above grade and covering it with soil. Some nitrogen fertilizer and lime also are added.

I turn it over a few times during the spring and it seems like there's always a yard or two on the bottom that's ready for use by fall. I add the compost to garden in the fall, which makes room for the new batch of leafs that are about to drop. Works pretty well but I do have to keep sticks and twigs out of the pile and a chipper/shredder would let me use more material and speed up the composting.

DR Chipper has come out with a new 3 point hitch mounted chipper. It is around 1700 buck delivered. They say it has more more they their 18 HP gas unit. They claim it can chip a 41/2 to 5 inch branch in about 30 seconds.. I have 20 acres with lots of trees and branches...would be nice to chip them up.
