Needed to move the tractors from the back yard so I could mow, and decided to line them up for a few pics.

The 1886's hood is out for a wee modification. I'll post pics of that when it gets back. Also, I bent a U-shaped piece of the exhaust on a low branch whilst tilling the neighbor's garden. I'm letting the PBblaster 'work' in the muffler clamps so I can get them off and replaced.

The +1 is the 800 that is hiding in the shadows in the last two pics.

Looks like a mighty fine day for them to be out grazing together in the lazy afternoon sun, minus the shy one hiding in the shade, was he naughty? They look so proud and ready....Thanks O.B. Happy Friday 2u

Quite the gang you have there. That 'shy' one might think it's not good enough to be in the family portrait. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the pics Old B. When you see the 1886 beside the others you can see why they call them large frames!

Chipper works great. Danged thing is a bit scary actually.

I haven't used it much, just enough to see if it worked. I put in a small branch that was about 3/4" or so in dia. and about 3' long, and it just went GGRRRUUUK..and spit out the remains in less than a second. When I was getting ready to till the neighbor's garden, he had some cornstalks left over from last year's sweet corn. Rather than trying to till them in, I took the G10 over, and the chipper pretty much turned most of those old stalks into dust. The rest was VERY small pieces.

When you have the tractor running at max RPM, it takes a LONG time for that chipper to "wind down" once you disengage the PTO.

Are those chippers a fairly rare item? I saw one listed for sale the other day.

I'd say that they are on the rarish side. This one is the only one I've seen advertised.

It was @ 250 miles way from me, but a couple of things 'fell into place' that allowed me to buy it.

Here's my original thread on it, and the pic thread.
