Tractor Mounted Chipper?
Posted May 20, 2012 - 07:41 PM
I have a JD 318 with a 3 pt . Anybody ever fabed up a chipper for this type of application?
I have looked at the MTD/Troy bilt 5 horse units which will work, but do not want another engine to care for. Any suggestions?

I have been thinking the same thing. I've been watching for a chipper with a bad engine. I don't know anything on a JD 318 but though of somehow using the tiller pto for running one.
Either the pto or the hydraulics if it would provide the flow needed to run a decent sized motor.

It also may be a possibility of running this off of the hydro if the flow is enough.

Running off the hydro is definitely out. Nowhere near enough flow.
Kind of confirmed what I was thinking.

That was a deal don't see many for the 140 120 300 tractors
A couple of weeks ago there was a JD Grinder and mount that was advertised to fit a John Deere 140 It sold for $225.00. Might give you some idea of where to start.
MacKISSIC I believe made one for 2000 rpm pto and cat 0 I have to look though my

I don't know for sure, but I think that the rear mounted ones for the GT's were probably not Cat 0, but frame mounted just like the front mounted ones.
Here's what it looks like on the G10.
