$5 junkyard find

Recommended Posts

My brother knew I was looking for one of these and spotted it on his weekly visit to the local junkyard.










It turns freely but my brother could not find the chute that goes on the chipper opening:(. I plan to repaint this and copy the hitch from my shredder and then sell the shredder and keep this chipper/shredder:D! Thanks for looking! Dan

Holy moly!!!!!!!! He stole that. ^ Best part is that it is a chipper/shredder rather than just a shredder. Similar units are what Ambler and I used for our tractors. We made the hitches and clutch/pulley assemblies for mounting them. If we can find them RodH and I have a sketch for making the chipper feed hopper. Congratulations.

I know of a tractor buddy who has(or a least had) a NOS chipper/shredder so I may also find out if I can borrow it as a template. My shredder is also the mighty mac and it has the factory Simplicity hitch so it will be used for the template for the hitch!8D

Good deal, I got a similar one, but it was free sitting in the trash:D. It had the wheels and motor mount, I got me a Roy/Ambler hitch and she runs fine. Mine is only the shredder without chipper :(. jh

I made this chute for mine from a drawing Roy sent me. I'll try to go back through emails and find the drawings. I think my wife threw away the email after printing the sketches. I have found that I can actually get the chipper to work better without the chute. Ambler also told me that when he sold the chipper to me. I made it, but have not used it the last couple times I chipped limbs.
