I know there has been a good amount of discussion and many owners who have one that id like to hear from. I saw a new Wallenstein Bx42s for sale a few hours from me for $1600. I could maybe get him to do better but that’s atleast half of what they are new. Apparently this units never been used.
With my landscape business any pruining we do is usually hauled to the landfill or I put in my burn pile. I have been collecting it now and have a decent pile, I also have a buddy who runs a Christmas tree lot and I take what’s left and burn those. This year he had 130 left over that I kept.
I’ve rented the large 10-12” diesel tow behind chippers and although I’ve tried And have yet to bust or stall them.
Will I be able to feed the chipper “full trees” or one branch at a time? Rental is $300 a day for a big machine. And between rental and myself purchasing mulch for my trees and beds it would pay for the unit eventually.
What is the life expectancy for the knives or cutters that the chipper uses?
