    PTO powered wood chipper

    I'm looking for some thoughts. I have a 2013 JD 4105 tractor and I'm looking for a wood chipper to put behind it. Will mainly be chipping up black jack limbs and some cedar tree limbs and small trees. What do you all recommend? Not looking to spend more than about $3000 or so which means I don't want anything too big, but I don't want anything too light weight either. Thanks.

    Whatever you do, DON'T get a DR branded chipper. cedar branches will jam it right up and without the proper driveline protection, damage the PTO shaft.

    A good starting point is to determine the max diameter of the limbs you need to chip. That will then directly relate to the size/price of the chipper. You need something properly sized for the 33HP of the 4105 PTO.

    PTO powered wood chipper

    This is the one I have been looking at.

    I have a big need for a shredder as well so I'm leaning more towards the Wallenstein BXM32.

    You might also want to take a look at the Wallenstein BX32S or the new BX52S.

    After reading everyons posts so far, and by the way thanks a bunch for the info, this leads me into another question. What is the big difference between a chipper and a shredder? I notice that a lot of the units advertised are chipper shredders. This has me a little confused.

    The unit has both chipper and shredder.

    I bought a Wallenstein BX42 (chipper only).

    I have a Wallenstein BX62, it was less than your $3K limit 7-8 years ago when I bought it. Too big for your tractor, but Wallenstein gets my vote.

    BEWARE of "knock offs" I have seen chippers that "look" like a Wallenstein and even had BX42 name sticker on it, BUT was NOT a Wallenstein.

    I have a Bearcat 73554 Chipper / Shredder.

    The "shredder" is for chewing up limbs, branches and the little stuff like that. I've even used mine to mulch the ornamental grass that I cut to the ground every year.

    Here's a picture of it attached to the back of my 3520. The "chipper" feed is the long, orange tube. It's designed to send down the bigger stuff. This chipper is rated at 5" material. It'll eat 3" stuff like no tomorrow! Anything bigger and I feed it in smaller chunks or it starts to bog down the tractor. Although this isn't a power feed chipper, as long as the knives are sharp, it pretty well pulls the material right into the chipper.

    The "shredder" is the black part on the back of the picture. It has a wide opening so you can feed in all of the "branchy" stuff without having to cut it down. You can feed stuff up to about 1.5" in diameter in there. You have to be careful feeding stuff into there as it will yank it right out of your hand.

    Below is a picture of the flywheel with the chipper knives (4 of them on this machine) which is the rear of the picture. In the forefront are the shredder knives. When the flywheel is spinning the knives swing out from the centrifugal force and tear up the material in much the same way a flail mower works. Pretty cool!

    Oh, did I mention that my Made in the USA chipper is for sale? And it's within your budget!
