    Wood chipper

    Got a chance to use the wood chipper this weekend and all I can say is .... wow! The BX42 is a fine working piece of equipment. Hardwood, softwood, freshly cut or not so freshly cut, it worked like a charm. Highly recommend this unit to anyone who is looking for a reasonably priced chipper.

    For some odd reason, I would love a chipper , but in all honesty I have absolutely no requirement for one, minimal at best. But if I did, that would be the one I would buy. It looks like a very quality piece of equipment. I just found one on Craig's list for $1750 and am practicing high restraint.

    The problem with that is that $1750 is a great deal for the chipper *and* it still ONE THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED FIFTY dollars!!! Does any other attachment cost so much for so few hours of use?

    So true, but money isn't everything as we all have expensive tractors. But, to be honest, it is priorities and we all make those choices, just seem money tends to be a key driver.

    I look at it as more of an investment. I have a set amount of work to do and probably will get it done in 4 - 5 years after which I will likely sell the chipper. I expect to get a good piece of my initial outlay back. The few hundred dollars that I lose will more than be compensated by the convenience of having it on hand when I want it and the overall satisfaction of havin the job done.

    That is teh line that I used with my wife aned I am sticking to it.

    Yup another very good point. Seems we can justify anything if we really want to.

    Wow for some reason I remember you saying this a couple of weeks ago when Liz and I were down there. I remember you saying you don't know why, you just think a wood chipper would be fun to have!
    Don't think about it...just buy the one on Craig's list and enjoy it!! Now that the metal chipper (i.e. the Mill) is all back together and making metal chips fly, now you can go make some wood chips!!

    I would think for that price (1750) you could use it for as long as you would want and be able to recoup your money at anytime....shoot,maybe even make a little.

    You guys aren't helping. If I buy the chipper I would have to plant some trees.

    Also, the one I am eyeing is the BX and not the BSX. Do you guys think the shredder option is worth getting? I would think you would want the chipper/shredder combo.
