    Whatís the going rate for a BX42?

    Hello All,
    I’ve been shopping around for a chipper after getting a price of $4,750.00 for a new Frontier WC1105 wood chipper. It seems the consensus is the Wallenstein BX42 is about the best bang for the buck. There is one on eBay for $2799.00 plus shipping. What’s the going rate for these, and is there a preferred supplier? I’m looking to purchase this new.

    Thanks, John

    I bought mine for $2,999 (plus tax and delivery) last August. I called a few places and some were cheaper but had higher shipping charges. So it was a wash in the end. I can attest to how well it works. I am in Michigan so cannot advise you on a local place to get one.

    Is the one on Ebay used, if so, maybe better to spend the extra $200 on a new one.

    Thanks jsokel

    Thanks for the reply and price feed back. They claim it's new and the shipping quote is $148. The seller is only 125 miles from me, so I may go pick it up depending on sales tax etc.

    I have a small DR chipper and would not recommend them as the throat is too small. Hard to feed branches through if they are crooked. This chipper was a freebie for me so I am not complaining but I have learned to get a larger chipper when buying next time. I find it isn't a matter of how large a diameter the branch is as much as being easy to feed, so I am going to get a 62 series chipper with the larger throat. If the branches are big enough for firewood kindling I don't have to chip them.

    Woodward Crossings has the BX42 for $2699 plus shipping, and there is a calculator for shipping cost. That's where I bought mine in December, no issues at all they were quick to ship it out.

    I got mine very lightly used for $1650. Guy I bought it from couldn't figure out how to run the rear pto without sitting on the seat... So he thought it was a faulty design. I felt bad but it was already tied down in my truck when he told me that. I did tell him to set the parking brake, put 'er in neutral, pto set to rear only and he could let it rip...

    I love the BX42, but would love hydraulic feeding even more.

    What is the opening size of the DR chipper?

    Thanks for the price feed back. I think I'm OK at $2,799 and I'll pick it up. It may cost around $80.00 and maybe 5 hours round trip. I can also look it over before I buy it. I still may want to go bigger.
