anyone tried a chipper/shredder

Recommended Posts

I have got two, 1 McKissic Shredder Grinder and 1 McKissic chipper shredder. The Shredder Grinder is set up to be mounted on the rear of the tractor and the Chipper Shredder will be. The difference between them is the Shredder Grinder only has hammers and loads from the top and will only take about ½" limbs safely. The Chipper Shredder has hammers and flywheel with a knife and loads from both the top and side. The side chute will take 2½" to 3" limbs.

I have two chipper/grinders. One will be hooked up to the rear of my Landlord this summer. I would be hesitant making one. The speeds of the hammers and the balance needed might create a death machine if not done correctly.

just curious, do they contain a heavyflywheel of sorts and do they rely on inertia or is it done another way. the others i have seen with their own power seemed to have a very heavy internal mass. just thought it would be a neat project. badcars
