You will love it. I have a mac chipper for rear mount on Simplicity/Allis tractors and its a monster! 3" is not a problem...not sure on the Tomahawk, but the chipper flywheel on a mac is 40#!

Just turning the shaft by hand, I can tell there's a lot of flywheel effect there.  Can't wait to go pick it up.  Likely go get it tomorrow afternoon.

They could come with an optional trailer tongue. Still though, one little bobble and she'd go right over.


I sold mine last year. Same model with a 8 - HP electric start Briggs.
The one I had was in great shape and came with a factory tow bar, which can be easily duplicated. With the tow bar set up while being top heavy, I never had a problem with it tipping over. But I'm sure it would if one of the wheels hit a pothole.

I put mine on Craigslist with the hitch bar and manuals included for $500. Took $450 for it and had a lot of interest. Guy came over a 100 miles each way to buy it.

Dainel,

Identical to yours, just got it today, kind of ironic.

 

Runs good, both blades sharp, flail hammers in good shape.

Got mine home & in the shop, but too lazy to go take pics.  Almost no rust on it, and cleaned up would look super nice.  All I did was loosen the air filter to shoot in some carb cleaner and she fired right up & sounded great!  Hopefully pics & more tomorrow.

With a little luck, maybe even a video.  All depends on the weather tomorrow.  Gotta hit the hay...should be asleep already.

Not thinking, I posted these pics over in my farm thread.  I'll post them here for clarity.  This unit is in nearly perfect shape just looking at it.  A washing & it would look nearly new I'd think.  I won't have any time till maybe this evening to work on the carb, and it may be storming by then.  Plus I may just decide to rest.  I am VERY happy about buying it at this point!  Oh, and this thing is HEAVY!  I never even moved it where I bought it....just looked it over.  Took quite a pull getting it up my tailgate of my trailer, as where I was parked, the 3' tailgate was at a steep angle.

Carb cleaned & back on shredder.  The carb bowl was FULL of crud.  I just used my sandblaster carefully & got it like new inside. Gonna flush the fuel tank, put on new fuel line & add an inline filter.  Hope to have her going in a little while.  Problem is, Teresa called me to supper, and now I feel fat & lazy!  :rolling:

Daniel,

That chipper/shredder was never used, you got NOS you lucky you, man that looks good :thumbs:

 

Around 200 lb, built to last for sure, the later ones used thinner steel and changed design.

It was used just enough to stain the grate a bit.  I doubt it has 3 or 4 hours on it.  That is the original muffler & not even rust on it except light rust where the dirt daubers nests were stuck to it.

  I got it running, but rain came in, so no video tonight.  I'm tired & need to rest up.  Still cuts out at times, but it needs ran more than anything.  I may have to buy a belt, as I think it's kinda dried out & really slow to bite the pulleys.

  It dances a bit on concrete, but not too bad on dirt.  I had to bring it inside the shop when the rain hit.  I'm gonna build me a tongue kit so I can pull it with a GT instead of lugging the beast.  That will stabilize it too as I can drop it from the top handle, but leave the tongue on the axle.

  Engine has absolutely no smoke, and not the slightest sounds of wear.

I find that it will chip branches up to 2 '' before really pulling down the engine, the flywheel has two chipper blades so it will go fast and twisting the branches while chipping helps.

 

By your mention of ''screen'' i take you have the 3/4 hole screen ? very, very hard to find for these first generation, i made one for the WW Grinder. I hope you got the shredder bar grate ? for mulching leaves, garden wast, grass and such the screen will clog, thats were the bar grate comes into play and works very well.

 

When i find the time I want to make a extention to the hopper much like what was offered in the day pictured below :

I never measured the screen, but I'd say it's 3/4".  Yes, I have the bar grate on it now.  That hopper extension would be a great addition I'd say.  May have to make myself one too.  Much safer as well by laying it in the hopper, then using a push paddle.
