Not a tractor, sorry about that. Seeing as I will be dealing with a lot more woody and leafy waste this year it made sense to kill two birds with one stone and make money on the grinding in the form of mulch and compost.

 

After the failure with diesel repowering of the Allis B-10 I decided to replace the Briggs with the more powerful and fuel conservative Lister.

 

Big thanks to Chris (cvans) for going through the troubles of shipping this engine to me.

Hopefully everything will work out good this time. A wood chipper could happen next year depending on how this season works out and I have to travel for winter work again.

Does the top hopper grind and the chipper the side for large branches?

Yes, 3 inch chipper. This is a true grinder, not a flail type shredder

Wow, no real interest in this at all. Another dead thread, moderators, delete this then. I have it on another forum with 16 replies and 105 views already.

Not dead in my book , I was hoping for some pictures of the grinding part of the unit if you have some . I have an old Roto-Hoe  chipper shredder using  the flail type  . What differences are they between them ?

I used one of those grinders like that some years ago. That thing does a lot of work in a hurry. That diesel should handle it just fine.

That engine looks like it belongs on there. Even the right color. Can't wait to see it working.  :D

Both machines are hammer mill types, yours is the flail, hammers on pivots, safer and easier on the machine. mines is commercial heavy duty, grinder type. Below is basically what my hammer drum looks like :

It will grind just about anything, including wet. No pivoting knives will to fold back or clog, it grinds the waste.I can control final product size and grind dirt/compost if needed.

I can't keep up and that was with the gas engine, need a conveyor belt of some kind.

'

5 to 8 depending on RPM setting. Tons for torque though. Easily destroyed the 6 spd. transmission in a 12 hp Wheel Horse when set for 5 hp.

Blueprinted it will bump 12 hp at 3,600 rpm.

 

I got a odd ball engine, high output model, spins counter clock wise with the flywheel cover for the clockwise spinning twin cylinder LT2 with a baffle inside to direct airflow around the cylinder fins, also has the LT2 flywheel and bolt on, heavy duty pto shaft my friend machined for me.

So, are your hammers stationary on the shafts and don't rotate at all or did I misunderstand?  Even the 1,500HP hammer mills I rebuild and sell, all the hammers can rotate on each axis on the drum. Trying to figure this one out.. Well built machine for sure.
