Welcome to GTT. Without pics it is impossible to say. Prices vary around the country too. It sounds like something that you should consider keeping for future yard work.. Good Luck, Rick

The chippers are a tough find for most brands of tractors. I wasnt aware MacKissik made a GT mounted chipper that would even allow a 4" limb to enter the unit. I think the opening on mine will fit a 3"....maybe up to a 3.5" limb. It sure eats it up though. They will really pull down on a small engine. The independently powered units started out with only a 5hp Briggs. I cant imagine...I run mine on the back of a 18.5hp diesel and just love it!

If yours doesnt have the chipper component, and is actually a shredder-grinder, 4" limbs arent meant to go through the hammermill. That setup just wont hold together long. I dont care to put much 1" "stuff" into mine, without using the chipper chute.

Those units are still being made.
New self powered units, on their own wheels, have an MSRP of around $2,000.
But used ones can be had for around $200!
The brackets to mount it to a John Deere may be worth something?
I have a Wheel Horse unit.
That flywheel on the side of it has hardened steel cutters for chipping branches.
Like taintedmrgreen said, up to 3".

Oh wow...I hadn't seen the picture before, for some reason.  That's in good shape, has the chipper and mounts to a JD.  I'd call it a $350-400 attachment, plus the Deere markup...say, $500?  I can't say I've seen one in that specific configuration.  I bet it would go through the roof on 'da bay.
