Due to the fact it's supposed to rain for 3 straight days up here, I put the fuel to the fire and begged the kids for a little help.
Got the Mackissic Mounted to the Sears as a working Prototype.
It's got a LOT of makeup to put on and several line items to finish on the "clutch" but it's a working unit.
If the video quality is good enough to see, the last branch is 1+" on the end that goes in first. I'm sure it'll handle bigger than the 1.5" it's supposed to max out at.
Don't forget: loose grip and let go when it yanks it in. Whew.


Couple pics added soon and some detail pics when done, but I just had to share.

Alan, all I can say is that thing is scary as heck in the dark. That last big stick moved some metal with vengence. I think you are as crazy as you think you are. :poke:

Thanks, it's both a little scary and a little fun
I hope to take it off and take some pics. Have a couple welds to finish and the pivots for the clutch.

Thats is neat.....I am wondering what it would do if I put a shovel full of last years compost in it. At the current time I run my tiller through my compost because I don't have one of those fancy drums. 

 

Is that suppose to be a compost shredder or a twig chipper?

Looks scary dangerous to me.  I have run a lot of stuff through a Super Tomahawk and a lot of times you cannot let go quick enough without some steel protection between the open grinder and the feed hopper.   That would be a toss and run at best.  Stay safe and don't over trust your "let go"  ability.

kinda halfway between
Farmer nearby saw it and asked about my small hammer mill/feed grinder.
With a different restrictor plate, it would work

Not sure.
I think it may have been a tractor unit converted to a stand alone
Small hopper, obviously home made cart

Here's a page on the operation that the 9P shredder.  It was for the Bolens version, but the basic shredder is the same.

Nice job ! You'll get good use out of it . I have a Roto Hoe one like that , it makes nice mulch out of the chips from the wood chips the tree guy dropped off for me . John , I tried running part composted material through mine but it was too wet and clogged the screens , then you have to put some small sticks in to help bang it around to unclog it . Maybe if it was dryer it would have worked better
