    Titan BX42S

    I was wondering if anyone has the Titan bx42s wood chipper hooked to their 1025r. If so how do you like it?

    I too, am wondering the same thing, they have the Titan BX42 Wallenstein knockoff on sale this weekend for 20% off at $1199.00 delivered and no sales tax. Sounds like a pretty good buy to me. Looks like this same chipper is sold by many sellers in various colors and just branded differently. Would not be surprised if all these knockoffs were made in the same plant in China.

    Think I will pull the trigger and order it today. Getting laid off soon so i guess i can get the lane side of my timber cleared out from years of trimming. Maybe the green deere will attract the brown deer..lol


    I will post a review in a few weeks.

    I just completed the order process this morning and it should be here in 3 or 4 days. After all the looking around on the internet, particularly YouTube reviews, with the $300 discount it seems like a heck of a buy. I have a mountain of brush and tree cuttings to chip. We have been burning this stuff for the last few years but with all the fires here lately, and one last month that came within a few hundreds of yards of our property, I think my burn pile days are over. We are on 10 acres and there will be no shortage of work for this tool.

    Aside from the Wallerstein being $1800+ more, I see the flywheel on the Wallerstein is #110 and the flywheel on the Titan is either #75 or #80. I can't tell which as I have seen both specs on the Titan unit. Other than that I don't know but I would guess that the material and the welds over all are probably of higher quality on the Wallerstein unit. Not being a professional who would use this all day every day, I think the cheaper unit will likely do for my application. I would normally buy a name brand quality product but this appears to be an easily serviceable unit and the majority of reviews out there are pretty positive on the Titan unit. I purchased the Titan forks for my 1025R over a year ago and they have held up well and meet my needs just fine.

    Need to make my fixed income go as far as I can.

    Thanks, Kenny! I always appreciate a complement from someone I respect!!

    Before this thread devolves into another US made vs. Chinese made discussion, I'd like to just make one more comment. While I usually try to buy stuff that's made on this continent, I - along with everyone else - also buy more than my fair share of stuff made in China. We're in a global economy and I wholeheartedly support the notion of a global economy. I would have no problem buying a Chinese made WoodMaxx chipper because it appears as though that design is theirs (and maybe Jinma's as it is super similar). (Full Disclosure - I do own a WoodMaxx chipper, but it's their top of the line made in the USA 9900.) When I was chipper shopping, I saw those Chinese Wallenstein knock-offs, but I kept on looking. I won't support a company (importer, distributor, etc.) that blatantly steals someone else's intellectual property. That's what it appears that Titan has done in this case.

    i really don't have a problem with Titan pallet forks. It's kind of hard to get creative with pallet forks - there's only so many ways you can make them so it's hard to say that Titan ripped off someone else. But this chipper is a different story. (Full disclosure - I own Artillian forks.)

    I personally won't buy Titan anything. I made that mistake once and I won't make it again.

    With regards to Panhead's observation about the flywheel weight difference, that's something that the OP should consider. There's approximately a 50% increase in the weight of the Wallenstein flywheel which is a good thing. With a chipper, a heavier flywheel makes a big difference in performance. Something about that inertia thing that Sir Isaac Newton wrote about so long ago.

    I do sincerely hope that the OP is happy with the performance of this chipper once he starts using it. The last thing that I want to see (or read about) is that he plunked down his hard earned money on a big purchase and that it isn't all that he hoped it would be.
