Thanks, Will. I was hoping you had thought about that. I borrowed one years ago, but it was a large, stand alone type. Heavy, yet it gyrated about with bigger limbs.

I had to try it out this afternoon, once I got the belt on, before I went

any further.

Oh ya, it chews sticks real good.

Then I added a muffler.

I might spring for an empty soup can, or a 45* elbow.

It's always nice when something works like it supposed to!

How high off the ground will it be? You'll need room for the chips under it when you are grinding things up.

On the weekend, I made up the gas tank mount, got it all

wired up, and bolted the axle on. It was together enough

so that I could take it to the bush for a good trial run.

I wanted to see if anything had to be changed before I got

the paint brush out.

The test run went great. It was chomping up 1 1/2"

green pine bows quickly, with no problem.

Sorry, no pics or video, so just envision Rosie

O'donnell in a donut shop.

 

I've got it back in the shop now, to make a few changes:

 Bring the axle forward 10" (too much tongue weight)

 Drop axle 5" to give more room under chipper, and get

    engine sitting level, when trailer is hooked to GT.

 Belt guard. Throttle control. Paint.

 I also want to beef up the hopper, which has

  seen better days.

Sure, I find this after you make it no longer fit on my Homelite. Save that longer double pulley set-up, you can use that for the older tillers also.

I finished Fargo up this afternoon.

I might get it out into the bush again this weekend

to give it a good workout. I've got 3 big piles of brush from

last fall, to chew up.

Very Cool Will!  A little humor is actually a good safety sign and may be a reminder for you and others to retain your digits.  Now I need to go rent the movie, because I have not seen it.

 

Congratulations on a very nice custom creation!
