Looks to be in decent shape.

 

Starting bid is low, but there is a reserve, which may indicate that he's wanting too danged much.

 

I guess we will see at the end of the suction :D :D :D

Scott, it's a grinder/shredder, but doesn't have a chipper.

So there is not an option or add on to turn it into a chipper? A chipper is a totally different type?

 I think these could come with a chipper, but to add one would likely be difficult at best.  The shredder or "grinder" is simply a hammermill....blunt steel swinging on pins that "hammer" the stuff till it's small enough to pass through the screen grid.  A chipper is a knife on the side of the hammermill wheel that cuts off actual chips of wood from larger pieces too large for the hammers.  The chips will pass out the chipper sections own chute, separate from the hammermill screen.

You described the difference very well Daniel. I bought one of these several years ago thanks to the keen eye of Brian (Bolens 1000). I bought the shredder and a Brinly dump cart from the fellow. When I got it home I think I described it as a chipper but member Bruce Dorsi was able to tell me the reason it was a shredder and not a chipper. Thank goodness we have many well informed members on the site. I put this on my watch list to see the end price. I really don't remember how much I paid for mine. Just know that I wanted it, bought it, and brought it home.

I know that sometimes the correct term is important, but still, chipper, shredder, grinder.

 

In all cases, ya feed it a branch, it goes GRRRRUNNNNCCCHHHH, and ya get little pieces of said branch :D :D :D

I was mainly curious since I bought one and was not sure which one I had. It looks exactly like the one you posted.

Mine is a grinder shredder for sure.   :thumbs:  Sorry to jump the thread!

I like your thinking, put something in the hopper and it comes out smaller.

So a store & a shredder is the same thing?  When we go shopping, my wallet comes out smaller every time!  :rolling:

The difference is extremely significant...the chipper adds a 46lb flywheel with knife for chipping. Im more familiar with values in the Simplicity world, but the chippers are at least double what the grinders are. They are much tougher to find.

The chipper actually deposits chips into the hammermill, where they are further processed.

Now that I didn't know about.  My chipper/shredder I bought recently has separate outlets, but I figured if I didn't need chips, I'd just dump them into the hammer mill afterward.
