Yesterday I purchased an Earthquake 11.50 cc chipper/shreader. Got it home and cleaned up about 3/4 of a brush pile I've been staring at for two years! Pile was too close to my neighbors to burn. To big to move. This thing is a beast! It pulls limbs through and never blinks. I expected to have to slowly push big limbs in, this machine grabs them and you have to watch out for the flying limbs as they shoot in! I ended up with four huge bags of wood chips that I put around some plants. This only took about an hour and a half, and some of that time was emptying the bag and spreading the chips. I see many hours of chipping in my future. The time I spend on the seat of my lawn tractor is relaxing, almost like meditating. This is relaxing as well (while avoiding the obvious dangers).

I would like to have a chipper, but I'd need a fairly large one. Always thought about building one from an old small silage chopper head, but will likely never get around to it. Post some video of your chipper in action please!

That is what I want to do. Really work pushing that stuff through those little machines.

Maybe today. Family frowned on Christmas shreading. Don't know why? I don't like wood chips in my ham anyway!
