Last week, when I picked up my daughters Simplicity, I also scooped a MacKISSIC MIGHTY MAC Shredder Grinder, from the same guy. It hangs on the back of an Allis or Simplicity. I haven't had any time to go
over it yet, but managed to snap some pics today.

I've never seen one before. It looks pretty solid.

Very cool piece Will. Are you keeping it with Sarah's Simplicity or are you going to Masseyfy it?

OldBuzzard has one on the front of one of his Bolens. He has a couple threads here about it.

Will , That one is just like mine. Mine was mounted on the front of a Wheel Horse. I have never used mine yet, but keep thinking I will someday. Very nice machine, and well built.

I haven't decided yet, if I'll Masseyfy it, or make it a stand alone unit on a trailer, with it's own power.
I have oddles of pine bows I could chip, to cover trails. It sure looks dangerous though.

Will' DON'T STICK YOUR FINGERS IN IT.

Good looking unit, it should do well for you. I never thought about hooking one to a tractor like that. I have a chipper (can't remember the brand) that belonged to my mother that is a very heavy well belt unit. I've been toying with a stand I can back my dump trailer under and catch what I grind to go dump in the garden, just haven't done it yet. Can't wait to see what you do with it.

Ronnie, I'm thinking about the same thing. A stand/ platform for the chipper, or maybe a pit to back
a trailer into, under the chipper. First, I want to see what it can do. I won't have much of a chance at
that till mid Aug.

I wouldn't say that it's dangerous, but it could bite you pretty good if you used it incorrectly.

Using just a bit of common sense is all you really need to do. Feed it from the side and don't look down to watch the hammers grind it up, use eye protection. Don't try to make it handle branches, etc that are larger than it's designed for. Wait for it to come to a stop before messing with the internals.

I will note that it takes a LONG time to spin down once you disengage the PTO. I suggest running the engine at a high idle, engage the PTO, and then advance the throttle to full for using it. When shutting down, back the engine down to a high idle before disengaging the PTO.

Now that is a piece I could use, as I have cleared a lot from the place this year and burned it all.

Congrats Will! Those are great units. They are also the same design as the industrial crushers and hammer mills I used to rebuild at work.

As long as the hammers are moving free and the shaft bearings are kept greased, It will last forever.

Nice attachment Will. I could use one of those as well. We have a lot of White Pine on our property and they are always dropping branches in big wind storms. MacKissic made some really nice equipment. Powering it with it's own engine would be a nice option as well.

Congrats on the chipper, Will. I used a larger version made by the same folks years ago. Did a great job!

Powering it with it's own Allis-Chalmers or Simplicity would be even better!

Nice grab Will!
