I HAVE a tub-grinder, and an ex...

It would have made too a big mess... Laughing out loud

Somone sat a chainsaw down next to a brush pile a few years back, a Stihl is a good saw, but the tub-grinder won.

We do however run old tires through on a pretty regular basis, on purpose. They don't stand much of a chance either, and they smell bad.

Best of luck.

ha...my ex was a tree guy, and many a time i got some ideas...but yeah, they ran over a customers prize award winning show cat and got rid of the evidence in the chipper, less messy than you would have though. Note: I like cats...not my idea. That was not a good project

Have you ever seen that macolm in the middle show on fox. They rented a chipper and started throwing stuff in. Lunch box, stuffed bear, toys, etc.

Me-tellphone book. That made a mess.

Have heard some stories. This one mexican threw a sunk into one and made the whole neigherhood smell. One guy had a employee try to kick something in and the chipper got his foot. On a whole tree chipper, a cable skidder didn't unhook one of the trees and the tree dragged the cable in. Which wrapped around the drum and dragged the skidder backwards and then stalled the engine on the chipper. Also a craweler loader with forks shovel a tree in a chipper and got the forks chopped up, the disk break and the transmission all screwed up. Just ask any landclearing company they will have some sort of story.

On a serious note, I met a guy who's friend owned a tree service. The tree service guy brought his C&D chipper (chuck-and duck) to another friend's house to help him out. The homeowner's 4-year-old got too close to the branches ("What ya doin', Dad?"Wink yeah right, got his coat snagged on a branch and was, well... Last I heard the owner of the chipper went out business. He was still a basket case over it and that was few years ago. That same guy I was talking to had another friend who had an excavating biz (like myself, that's how we got to talking about it). The owner had a guy in a 12' trench, it caved in on his worker. Owner jumped into the excavator frantically trying to unbury him and in the process decapitated him. The coroner ruled that the worker had died of suffocation first. He was fined big time by OSHA. Last I heard he was pretty messed up over too.

I think I saw an episode of Monster Garage on this topic.

I've really had a problem chipping limbs and the like with a basic homeowner chipper. The limbs are never straight and the locus wood dulls the blades too quickly.

I really wanted a heavy duty, pto mounted chipper and tried to find one with a power feed. While "Googling" this info, I stumbled onto an article in the link below and some others on http://www.arboristsite.com

I wish it was an urban rumor, but it appears to be real.

I stopped looking for a big chipper and now burn my brush. I'll just buy the mulch from someone else.

That's why we changed over to big tub grinders a few years ago.

They will grind anything without doing damage to themselves, we even get the odd rock through without much but a racket.

They are also far safer since they are machine loaded, not by hand.

For a new 'oddball request' record this year we were commissioned to process tons and tons of ice cut out of a local lake to make snow for a snow-cross race. The weather had been so mild all the snow they stock piled for the race melted away.

In case anyone was wondering, BTW, tub grinders make shaved ice really well, we could throw one heck of a Margarita party.

Best of luck.
